Aircare trains flight attendants for move into corporate aviation
Over the last two years, Aircare has seen an increased number of commercial flight attendants going through its standard FACTS training programs and decided to design a program that was more tailored to them.
Aircare International has introduced new training for commercial flight attendants expanding their careers into corporate aviation.

Aircare FACTS Training, a division of cabin safety training, contract staffing and telemedicine specialist Aircare International, has launched its Commercial to Corporate training programme. Developed specifically for commercial flight attendants looking to expand their careers, the programme equips participants to transition into corporate aviation.

The extensive and immersive two-day programme builds on existing expertise to ensure trainees are successful as they begin their careers in corporate aviation. Previously, all flight attendants were required to attend a three-day initial training programme, but commercial flight attendants can now use their previous experience to optimise their time and enhance their skills while transitioning from commercial to corporate.

They will also benefit from an extensive online course designed to supplement in-person training requirements and the complimentary Achieving Career Excellence (ACE) programme career seminar. The ACE programme serves as an interactive workshop to optimally position flight attendants who are considering new employment and marketing themselves to the business aviation community.

"Over the last two years we've seen an increased number of commercial flight attendants going through our standard FACTS training programmes. We wanted to design a programme that is more tailored to these professionals and can build on their existing experience," says vice president of operations Brian Hayvaz.

The training incorporates hands-on practical skills using tools such as full-motion cabin simulators, high-altitude trainers, full-size live fire trainers and underwater egress dunkers. "Classes also combine online coursework and interactive classroom presentations from instructors with decades of experience," Hayvaz continues.

In addition to the emergency procedures training, flight attendants have the option to add a third day of business aviation hospitality training, a newly refreshed programme that redefines and raises the bar of business aviation's hospitality standards.

Those looking to participate in the programme can do so in Chicago, Illinois; Dallas, Texas; Fort Lauderdale, Florida; Las Vegas, Nevada; Morristown, New Jersey and Van Nuys, California.
