|Welcome to Airline Announcements
747 Widebody Aircraft Safety Demonstration:
Welcome on board Flight ___(flight #)___ to ___(destination)___. Our aircraft is under the command of Captain ___(last name)__. He/she has informed me that our flying time will be approximately ___(i.e. 3 and one half hours)___.
While we are here to ensure that you do have a comfortable trip with us today, we are also concerned about your safety. With that in mind, we ask that you take the Safety Information Card out of the seat pocket in front of you and follow along as we perform our safety demonstration.
Your seat belt has been designed for easy fastening and release. To fasten, insert the metal fitting into the buckle, adjust to fit snugly with the loose end of the strap and simply lift the buckle release to unfasten. Your seat belt should always be worn low and tight across your lap.
You are on board a 747. There are ten emergency exits, five doors on the left and five doors on right, each marked with a red EXIT sign overhead. All doors except the overwing doors at 3 left and 3 right are equipped with slide/rafts. These rafts may be detached in the event of a water evacuation. The overwing doors are equipped with a ramp and off wing slide. Life rafts are located in pull down ceiling compartments at the overwing doors. For our customers on the Upper Deck, your escape route will be down the staircase, and out the first available exit. In the event that the staircase is blocked, an additional door with an evacuation slide is located in the cockpit. Operation and use of the exits, slides and rafts are illustrated in the safety information card. Please locate the two exits nearest you, keeping in mind that the closest exit may be behind you.
FLOOR PATH LIGHTING:
This aircraft is equipped with aisle path lighting which is located on the floor in the left and right aisles. Should cabin visibility be impaired, the exit path will be illuminated. White lights lead to red lights which indicate you have reached or are near an emergency exit location.
The cabin pressure is controlled for your comfort. However, should it change radically inflight, oxygen compartments will automatically open in the panel above your seat. Reach up and pull the mask to your face. This action will start the flow of oxygen. Place the mask over both your mouth and nose and secure with the elastic band as your Flight Attendant is demonstrating. Tighten by pulling on the ends of the elastic bands. Even though oxygen is flowing, the plastic bag may not inflate. If you are traveling with children, or are seated next to someone who needs assistance, place the mask on yourself first, then offer assistance. Continue using the mask until advised by a uniformed crew member to remove it.
ALL FLIGHT SEGMENTS OPERATING BEYOND 50 NAUTICAL MILES OF LAND:
(Demonstration of life vest operation required.)
Your individual lift vest is located in a pouch beneath your seat. Should its use become necessary, remove it from the plastic packet, slip it over your head and pull downward on the front panel. Bring the strap around your waist and insert it into the buckle on the front. Pull on the loose strap until the vest fits snugly as we are now demonstrating. As you leave the aircraft, inflate the vest by pulling down firmly on the red tabs. The vest may be orally inflated by blowing into the inflation tubes at shoulder level. Each vest has a rescue light on the shoulder for night use which is water activated by removing the Pull to Light tab located on the battery.
ALL FLIGHTS SEGMENTS WITHIN 50 NAUTICAL MILES OF LAND:
(Demonstration of life vest operation is not required.)
Your individual life vest is located in a pouch beneath your seat. Should its use become necessary, remove it from the plastic packet, pull the vest over your head and pull down on the front panel. Bring the strap around your waist and insert it into the buckle on the front. As you exit the aircraft, inflate the vest by pulling down on the red tabs. Use of the life vest is fully illustrated in the information card.
PREPARATION FOR TAKEOFF ANNOUNCEMENT:
In preparation for takeoff, please ensure that your seat backs and tray tables are in their full upright and stowed positions, your seat belts are securely fastened and all your carry-on items are securely stowed. Federal Aviation Regulations require customers to comply with the lighted customer information signs, other posted signs and crewmember instructions. Please observe the FASTEN SEATBELT and other lighted signs until they have been turned off by the Captain. The NO SMOKING sign will remain illuminated for the duration of the flight and smoking is prohibited throughout the cabin and in the lavatories. All lavatories are equipped with smoke detection systems and Federal Law prohibits tampering with, disabling, or destroying these systems.
Thank you for your attention. We will be airborne shortly.

The most significant role of a flight attendant is to ensure passenger safety. In doing so, flight attendants make several announcements before, during and after flight. The first announcement takes place before the aircraft leaves the gate, is an Aircraft Safety Demonstration specific for each type of aircraft and includes a demonstration alerting passengers of safety. Here are two Safety Demonstrations you can review and practice.

Airline Job Link
The primary and overriding responsibility of flight attendants is passenger safety. However, they are often tasked with the secondary function of seeing to the care and comfort of the passengers, insofar as this does not interfere with their safety responsibilities. They are often perceived by the flying public as waitresses or servants because only this latter function is normally seen outside the extremely rare event of in-flight emergency; and historically this perception has been portrayed by airlines in ads and commercials.

TriState Aviation Career Information
TriState Aviation is a small, but busy flight school located between Manhattan and Philadelphia. We operate a very clean, well maintained fleet consisting of C152s and C172 for our private pilot training. Our Arrow II is the perfect aircraft to complete the IFR and Commercial requirements our students are seeking as they prepare to move through their ratings to become commercial pilots. Our instructors are well suited for our operation. They work well together and have the type of disposition we seek for our students. Though we prefer to have a student remain with one instructor throughout their training program, instructors will assist each other with those students that are having difficulty adjusting to a required maneuver in our syllabus. It’s not uncommon to hear them talk to each other about the level their students are at, where they need help and where they excel. We encourage that line of communication between instructors so we all remain on the same page with our program. We have a number of interns responsible for a multitude of tasks in our building and on the field. Washing floors, cutting grass, pre-heating planes, refueling aircraft, taking out the garbage, detailing planes are just a few of the chores our interns are responsible for. We want a clean building, clean planes, smooth operations and a seamless transfer from one student to another. In exchange for their work, they receive free use of the aircraft as we encourage youth in our community to fly knowing that they are our future in aviation. We stress the idea of ‘community’ on the airfield and in our neighborhood. It’s not uncommon to find a few seasoned pilots sitting in our lounge, sharing stories with students and encouraging them to take their training seriously. We have an open-door policy for pilots on the field as well as people visiting the airport. We welcome anyone to sit on our patio and watch planes land and depart throughout the day. We are very involved in community projects and host a number of events throughout the year to recognize our veteran service men and women as well as providing an amazing Santa Fly-In for the kids in our community. Unlike other schools in the area, we don’t depend on fuel sales, hangar rent and tie-down fees to supplement our income. We don’t own the airport and rely solely on our productivity with our school as income. It’s important that we hold a higher standard in order to be a success in this arena. Whether you want to build your hours to be able to fly for the airlines or looking for a semi-retirement income to hold you over while maintaining your passion for flying, our doors are open. We’re certain that once you visit us and learn about our school, you won’t be going elsewhere for a position as a flight instructor. Please drop by or contact us for more information.
