EASA Cabin Crew Attestation The Low Down

What is a Cabin Crew Attestation?

If you wish to work as Cabin Crew in commercial air transport within a Member State of the European Community you must hold a valid Cabin Crew Attestation (CCA). This is a certificate of professional competency which permits you to discharge the duties of Cabin Crew on European Community registered aircraft (source UK CAA). To obtain the CCA you need to attend a training course that is delivered by an organisation approved by a European National Aviation Authority.

EASA Cabin Crew Attestation Course

EASA Regulations require each cabin crew member must undergo initial training and hold an attestation of that training. Corporate Flight Training is a Transport Malta Civil aviation Directorate (TM CAD) approved Cabin Crew Training Organisation (CCTO 008) and we are approved to deliver the required training and issue the Cabin Crew Attestation.

The EASA Cabin Crew Attestation Course includes all the generic safety training modules that are usually provided by the airlines.  In doing so this reduces the airline training time and cost leaving only the aircraft type-specific and company procedural training to be covered when you are employed by your airline or aircraft operator of choice.

The EASA Cabin Crew Attestation (CCA) is valid in all European countries and for all European airlines and is frequently requested for both commercial and corporate jet cabin crew positions.

Why should I get an Attestation?

EASA Regulations require each cabin crew member must undergo initial training and hold an attestation of that training.  Corporate Flight Training is a Transport Malta Civil aviation Directorate (TM CAD) approved Cabin Crew Training Organisation (CCTO 008) and we are approved to deliver the required training and issue the Cabin Crew Attestation.

Many airlines look favourably upon candidates who are in possession of a valid Attestation of Cabin Crew. This means the company training time is cut down as the company is only required to conduct an operator conversion/aircraft type training.  Holding an Attestation of Cabin Crew also demonstrates you have reached the required standards of training,  have gained the required knowledge and your commitment.  It gives candidates excellent cabin crew employment prospects and makes you much more employable than candidates without the Attestation.   

For corporate aircraft operators of 19 seats or less, by employing Flight Attendants who hold an EASA Cabin Crew Attestation the operator can utilse them as Cabin Crew who are able to participate in safety related duties.

The EASA Cabin Crew Attestation is valid for all European airlines and operators.
