Florida-based DaVinci Inflight Training Institute will participate in NBAA’s Flight Attendant Conference in Long Beach, California, from June 13 to 15 as both a sponsor and presenter. DaVinci founder Paula Kraft and business aviation cabin safety training and DaVinci partner Scott Arnold will represent the flight attendant training school at this event. Arnold will conduct courses in cabin safety training, in-flight service, etiquette and career development at the training institute.
DaVinci Inflight Training Institute will soon complete its 6,500-sq-ft facility for tours and classes this summer at the Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport (FXE). The facility features a mock flight department area to test graduates on the entire cabin service experience. Currently, the school is working with Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University to offer online classes that cover “SMARTtraveler,” professionalism, pilot essentials, food allergens, special meal planning and menu writing, as well as updates on the Food Safety Modernization Act and safety management system training. These courses, which are available as individual or blended programs, are designed to be completed before attending a specific course at the new facility.
Designed by Arnold himself, courses from the DaVinci Inflight Training Institute include service etiquette, soft skills and cabin safety programs at the preliminary and elite level. Culinary classes cover a variety of topics for a one-day program to a weeklong series of classes. Only 12 students will be allowed to sign up for each class to allow for intimate training and development of each student.
