The eight weeks of intense training is finally over. It has been a truly priceless experience and we are now released for flying! Getting into this job is hard, and the training itself is much harder. Being a cabin crew is not about ‘chicken or beef’ nor ‘coffee or tea’ as what others may think. Cabin crews are not just about looking badass at the airport concourses and up in the sky, and whilst walking up and down the aisle. Same with restaurants, it seems so easy to serve people, but the customers does not see what is really happening in the back. There are lots of thing that needs to be secured, checked, and prepared.
We have learnt how to deal with different types of emergencies such as evacuating an aircraft on water – or ditching, land evacuation, how to safely evacuate from a smoke-filled cabin, extinguish fire, deal with decompression, turbulence, perform CPR, give birth on-board, and tons of medical situations. We have been also trained on how to restrain anyone who is a threat either to the crew or passengers – but as a last resort.
There are still so many things to learn and discover outside the training college. I am nervous and excited on my first supy flight, which will be two days from now.
I have met lots of people along the way, heard stories, share laughters, and hardships, and I am going to miss everyone! Now, I have to face the path I have chosen – to serve people with a smile whilst ensuring everyone’s safety. I am now living my dreams and it feels very surreal. I am just very grateful to everyone who supported me all the way, and to those people who kept on telling me that I made them proud!
And lastly, to my lovely batch mates (AB 3168) whom I want to give some recognition.
