I like to go to a corner and see the world in motion. I have done many lonely business trips and has given me plenty of time to observe. So I began to wonder a lot about the different phases of flight. I searched the Internet and found that there is a huge amount of people doing and asking questions about flying. I looked to see if he had written a book on the subject and not found. From there I decided to write a book to pick up and answer all the interesting questions about fiight attendants.We see flight attendants serving meals, asking to open or closing windows or turning off all kind of electronics devices. And we think they are merely housekeeper, nannies. Wrong. Really wrong.Trained for emergencies IFlight attendants are trained to handle medical emergencies, Ditching (evacuating in water), volatile fuel threats and fires, evacuations, blocked exit procedures, decompressions, life raft procedures, and malfunctions.Trained for emergencies IIThey know how to deal with armed passengers, armed officers escorting prisoners, deportees, and hostile passengers.Trained for emergencies IIIThey are well trained in the use of emergency equipment such as halon fire extinguishers, solid state oxygen units, cold weather survival equipment, automatic external defibrillators, the first aid kit, the pocket mask for mouth-to-mouth resuscitation, life rafts, and the emergency locater transmitter.Special knowledgeThey also have to know where every piece of the equipment on every airplane. Qualified on five types of aircraft, but each type has different models and configurations, so they have to know the quirks of where they put the quipment on each configuration of each aircraft.Bulk of procedures They have to know a myriad of security procedures, sabotage procedures, how to put out a high energy battery fire if someones laptop ignites, unauthorized evacuation procedures, (if a passenger pops a slide on the ground) how to handle an Arctic landing, and inadvertent oxygen mask drops. This is just the tip of the iceberg of stuff they have to know. They get updates, revisions and bulletins every few weeks when stuff changes. So in actuality, were retraining all of the time.Text above adapted from https://www.huffingtonpost.com/patrici...Flight attendants need a degree. They prepared for real emergencies. Illness or dead on flight, assistance in storm, injuries or medication. They need to swim very well or follow evacuation procedures in an emergency.Do you still think flight attendants are simple nannies?Until I tried to organize this book I thought so. When I understood their real job and their preparation, I felt ashamed. By the comments I read on internet, most have a wrong idea of the Flight attendants. This book try to help assess the flight attendants in their fair dimension.The central purpose of the book is to change your mind about flight attendants.Get ready to change your impression of flight attendants. Buckle up.
