REDjet Cabin Crew ready for takeoff: Complete Training in Miami
As REDjet prepares to commence low cost air service in Barbados their cabin crew is in the final stages of their training.
Over the past 2 months, the 42 members of the all Barbadian cabin crew have completed intense operational, medical emergencies, ground school and aircraft safety training on the MD-82 aircraft which REDjet will be using. The preparation was conducted locally and at the world class well-known PanAm International Flight Academy in Florida. The final phase of training will take place once the company’s first aircraft arrives in Barbados.
REDJet’s CEO and Chairman, Ian Burns said, ‘We took a holistic approach to our MD-82 training and included a member of the Barbados Civil Aviation Department, who trained alongside our crew thus ensuring there was a local expert on the aircraft in Barbados.’ He added, ‘To date we have invested over BDS$1.04 million in the flight training so our team will be ready to welcome passengers once we have received final permissions from the regulators to commence operations.’
