Say what? Yes. Recurrent. All my fellow cabin crew will understand. Recurrent is a mandatory training and exams we have to take every year. It’s to keep all flight safety updated and in our minds. For me it’s a full two day training which I do have to prepare for in advance. All these flight safety procedures is something we deal with every day, so these are already in your head. It’s more a matter of dot the i’s and cross the t’s than actually studying.
That being said. I can’t believe it’s been a year already! Time flew by. Literally. Exactly a year ago on the 17th of March I started with my initial course and 4,5 weeks later on the 16th of April I got my wings. I have been flying for a year now. I can say that it is all I have been expecting. Yes it’s hard work, long days, the occasional grumpy passenger, early hours (my weak point) and I’m away from home a lot. But all the lovely layovers, the sweet passengers and my cool colleagues makes it all worth it.
I honestly can’t think of anything else I would rather do. Working while getting to see more of the world. I love it. Today I’m having a lovely pasta in Turin, Italy while tomorrow I am enjoying a good glass of wine in Toulouse. What other job can beat that? 🙂
