Flight Crew Staffing
Flight crew members need to have both excellent service skills and a safety training background. Crew members should have calming personality and the ability to greet guests, while also understanding body language and respecting the limited space on a private plane. It is highly desirable to have FAA-approved certification training, hospitality training, or have worked for a major commercial carrier.
A flight crews' duties are similar to those of a commercial flight attendant:
- Check safety equipment functionality
- Seating passengers and explaining safety protocol
- Offering food and refreshments
- Helping with luggage
- Ensuring that client-specific food and beverage preferences are available and soft furnishings are stocked
- Anticipating guest needs prior to the flight and during flight
- Sourcing, preparing, planning, and serving meals and beverages
- Updating and inventorying of the plane's soft goods
- Ensure that the aircraft cabin is clean and sanitized
- Excellent personal hygiene
If the plane is in a charter program, a steward must possess excellent communication skills, documentation of cabin maintenance, and guest preferences.
