Aircare Crews Staffing is now rewarding Aircare Crews-contracted pilots and flight attendants with free annual Aircare Facts emergency procedures training, the Olympia, Wash.-based company announced late last week during the NBAA Flight Attendants and Flight Technicians Conference in Washington, D.C.

The new program is designed to offset the annual cost of training often paid by freelance pilots and flight attendants who work regularly for Aircare Crews Staffing. Qualifying crew can attend any Aircare Facts Training three-day initial or two-day recurrent program at no charge. This training typically costs $5,000.

“Pilots who fly through us for 12 days in one calendar year can receive this training,” said Aircare Crews Staffing director Scott Arnold, who added that a similar arrangement exists for cabin crew. “We had always given our crew an employee discount, but this is much more. I was a contract corporate flight attendant before coming to Aircare Crews, and I understand how much of an incentive free emergency procedures or recurrent training can be for a contract flight or cabin crew employee.”
