The 12th annual NBAA Flight Attendants Conference, held June 29 and 30 in San Diego, stressed safety and security, as well as service and career development. Laura Jarmoszko, incoming chair of the NBAA Flight Attendants Committee said the conference gives attendees the tools and information they need to “pursue their professional development.” More than 250 people attended the event, which included seminars on global risks for flight crewmembers; professional and character development; an accident summary of the 2005 Challenger 600 accident at Teterboro Airport, which prompted the NTSB to recommend changes to training requirements for cabin aides; high-altitude, rapid decompression training; and closing remarks by a United Airlines flight attendant who described his experience aboard the Boeing 747 that suffered explosive decompression over the Pacific Ocean in 1989.
