"The AFAA prepared me extremely well for what to expect in the aviation world! Without this course my airline training experience would’ve been much more stressful but I felt confident throughout it because everything the AFAA had taught me. The instructors were PHENOMENAL, they were so caring and made all topics super interesting to learn about by giving examples of their time flying. 10/10 would recommend to anyone thinking about pursuing a path in flight attending."
