Cabin Crew Training

Cabin Crew Members, also known as Flight Attendants are the face of the airline industry. They are responsible for the safety and comfort of passengers on board aircraft. They provide a variety of services, including:

  • Greeting passengers and helping them to find their seats
  • Serving meals and drinks
  • Providing information about the flight
  • Handling emergencies and medical situations
  • Ensuring the safety of passengers and crew

Flight attendants work in a dynamic and exciting environment. They have the opportunity to travel all over the world and meet new people from all walks of life. It is a rewarding career that offers competitive salaries and benefits.

After passing the SACAA Exam and completing all your Practical Assessments, you will obtain an Internationally recognised “South African Civil Aviation Authority” Cabin Crew Licence, which means that you can seek employment with a South African Based Airline.
