It is important to understand as to what is the basic requirement to obtain a job in Aviation industry. Our students go for a day in-flight training for giving them a firsthand exposure to the Cabin crew Job profile and understand as to what to expect from this career. Our students know that when they will be selected by any airlines they have to compulsorily undergo training by the airlines according to its own procedures and safety rules prescribed by DGCA on that particular type of Aircraft that they will be flying on after their selection.
4. Why don’t you provide any other foreign language as some other institute provides?
In the current aviation industry scenario most of the passengers are from Indian origin and that is why Airlines hardly ask for any foreign language from its cabin crew. Also the International airlines always have their own nationals (their local Cabin Crew) on international flights so there is hardly any need for foreign language training. But still anybody who knows a foreign language is a good option.
5. What if we don’t get job after doing this course?
Airlines generally prefer the applicants who have got some hospitality or service industry experience. So the students who don’t directly get an Airlines job, it is advisable for them to join the service sector like a Star hotel/ Travel agency/ tour operators or a BPO for Airlines processes. In some time they should expect to get an opportunity to work with an Airline with the help of their more confident persona and proven experience of customer care.
