FAQ and Contact Cabin Crew Members
Where should I live?
Your living situation must be settled from the first day of the course. It must be expected that the course will start early and end late. For flight operations, check-in times are possible at 5:00 a.m. and check-out times at 12:00 a.m. There may then be no public transport connections available.
What does the timetable look like during the basic course?
In principle, the lessons take place Monday to Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. However, certain sequences may take place outside of these times and/or on weekends. A taster flight takes place on a weekend (SA or SO).
Can I have private appointments (e.g. doctor) during the basic training?
A complete attendance of all lessons is mandatory. As a rule, you cannot catch up on missed lessons. The basic training already counts as working time.
In which language is the basic course held?
The basic course is held in (Swiss) German and English (manuals/documents are mainly in English).
How long does the theoretical training last and what does it include?
The basic course consists of four and a half intensive, instructive and interesting weeks with various exams (also in English).
How long does the practical training last and what does it include?
At the beginning you will be accompanied, introduced and evaluated on board by an experienced cabin crew member. The six introductory flights are completed with a check flight. It will be checked whether your theoretical and practical knowledge is at the required level.
This takes about two to three months.
Is accommodation provided during the training?
It is your responsibility to arrange accommodation. We recommend that you clarify the housing situation in advance. From experience, a place of residence within a radius of 30 km from the airport is recommended.
