Cabin Crew Initial Training


Initial Training Course

We offer high quality initial training according to Finnair Flight Academy own Finnish Civil Aviation approved course. Our own courses are open for students who pay the course themselves and also for airlines who can train their cabin crew on these courses.

This training, if conducted by our own training program, gives the student the EASA Part-CC initial training attestation that is valid in EU countries and qualifies the student as a cabin crew member. After completing this training the student can apply for a job as cabin crew in EU countries and the airline will only have to give the applicant aircraft type specific training and operator conversion training.

The job opportunities vary very much from time to time – we cannot guarantee you a job.
