Fort Lauderdale, Florida (PRWEB) January 11, 2012
Beyond & Above Corporate Flight Attendant Training, an established corporate flight attendant training company based in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, has recently installed a full mockup interior of a Gulfstream III (GIII) aircraft including galley, seats, tables, and exit window in their hangar training facility at Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport (FXE).
“Because we are located here at FXE, we have the privilege of training individuals on actual corporate aircraft, which is an amazing extra benefit that only our trainees get to experience,” said Mary Lou Gallagher, President of Beyond & Above Corporate Flight Attendant Training. “Even though we offer the real thing, we still felt that adding the GIII mockup to our facility enabled us to offer even more real-life aircraft situations where trainees could practice with an actual galley, seats, table, and window. There is no such thing as too much real-scenario training.”
Using the GIII aircraft tables, chairs, and galley as part of the training course, trainees perform a mock in-flight service challenge where they prepare a breakfast, lunch, dinner, or snack service in the galley and then serve it to the other trainees and the instructor and clear the meal within an hour. Trainees are then critiqued by peers and the trainer after each service. According to Gallagher, “We believe this teaches our graduates how to deal with the anything-can-happen nature of the corporate flight attendant world.”
Trainees also use the GIII mockup to demonstrate a safety briefing of the aircraft, and it is also used in training for a variety of in-flight emergency situations, such as live fire simulations, practicing emergency landings with brace positions, and using the emergency window. The GIII exit window allows attendees to practice opening, removing, and climbing out of the open window.
"We strive to ensure our trainees graduate with all of the compliant emergency knowledge possible along with the highest standards of etiquette and service. All of our trainers and speakers are real-life flight attendants, pilots, dispatchers, and flight department owners,” said Gallagher. “We train our graduates to go beyond and above in every aspect of their jobs. Employers notice this and often report back to us that they really enjoy working with our graduates and are amazed how much practical aviation knowledge they have coming in the door. With the addition of the new GIII mockup, I am confident employers will be even further motivated to hire Beyond & Above graduates.”
Beyond & Above is coordinating an open house in February 2012 with a mini seminar on how to be flight attendant on a private jet, showcasing the updated training facility. Details will be announced on their website http://www.beyondandabove.net and on their Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter pages.
