Corporate Flight Training (CFT) is now an EASA-approved Cabin Crew Training Organization (CCTO), following an audit and training observation carried out by the UK’s Civil Aviation Authority. The news enables Corporate Flight Training to offer initial cabin crew training and issue the EASA Attestation of Cabin Crew.
CFT said more corporate and airline operators are looking to use safety-trained cabin crew, making the Attestation of Cabin Crew more desirable in Europe. Employing Attestation holders cuts down on the training time required, as it leaves only the operator conversion and type-specific training to be completed.
The company plans to deliver two bi-monthly open courses from its training center at Luton Airport in the UK: a five-day course suitable for corporate flight attendants and delegates with prior cabin crew/flight attendant experience, and a six-day course aimed at new entrants. The courses can also be delivered off-site on demand.
“We are absolutely thrilled we have gained our CCTO status,” said Yasmin Milner of CFT. “The team has worked very hard this year to make this happen; it’s been a huge undertaking. At CFT, safety is our ethos and we believe that safety training should be a priority for all crew members, particularly when you operate an aircraft with only one flight attendant/cabin crew member. We are looking forward to our future cabin crew Attestation courses.”
