All instructors teaching A&P courses are fully FAA Certificated Airframe and/or Powerplant Mechanics that have years of practical experience maintaining a long list of highly complex aircraft.

They are taught on aircraft engines ranging from the earlier used radials, to opposed reciprocating powerplants, modern turbo props, and pure jet engines. Students often work on carburetors, magnetos, turbo chargers, and other complex equipment commonly found on aircraft. AMTs are certificated by the FAA and work for a variety of industries that require highly skilled technicians. The most recognized among these are major and regional air carriers, general aviation, manufacturers, industrial trades, and the U.S. government.

Airline cabin crew, also known as flight attendants, are primarily responsible for ensuring passenger safety during a flight. They are also required to ensure the comfort of passengers which is why good customer service skills are so important.

Hours can vary so a flight attendant’s career is not for those who like to work 9-5 Monday to Friday. But the lifestyle is social, friendly and sometimes exotic – especially long-haul cabin crew jobs where you will fly and stop-over at world airports. It is hard work and rewarding.

Joining AMC Cabin Crew Course give a lot of advantages to the students. All trainers are ex-cabin crew high ranking officers. Students will learn not only what is written in cabin crew manual, but also from the trainer experience and tips too. We will also recommend students name to airlines in order to get them employed as soon as possible. However, it depends on student effort and determination.... [-]
