There is a statement that goes around in Corporate Flight Attendant circles… “It’s easy money,” some say. I’ve said this at times. Yet, I always have an unsettling feeling that easy is not the correct description for a flight attendant’s path to a paycheck.
The 𝐦𝐨𝐧𝐞𝐲 𝐞𝐚𝐫𝐧𝐞𝐝 𝐢𝐧 𝐜𝐨𝐫𝐩𝐨𝐫𝐚𝐭𝐞 𝐚𝐯𝐢𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧 is not easy but 𝐂𝐎𝐍𝐂𝐄𝐍𝐓𝐑𝐀𝐓𝐄𝐃.
I cannot write for 24hrs straight. However, I can be awake, prepping and flying for that amount of time. Earning as a corporate flight attendant is concentrated by blocks of time and extended into multiple days. That does not mean it’s value is more or less than other careers.
Using the term ‘easy’ to describe the job and earning outcome minimizes the men and women who dedicate their time and every ounce of energy to inflight excellence. Just getting into corporate aviation (for many) is the steepest, most difficult hill climbed. Usually, one finds themselves broke by the time they enter and the payoff results, not in the joy of money, but the undeniable satisfaction of simply ‘not giving up,’— a dream achieved.
Those who are successful longterm 𝐥𝐞𝐚𝐫𝐧 𝐡𝐨𝐰 𝐭𝐨 𝐦𝐚𝐧𝐚𝐠𝐞 𝐛𝐮𝐫𝐧𝐨𝐮𝐭 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐛𝐨𝐮𝐧𝐝𝐚𝐫𝐢𝐞𝐬 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐭𝐚𝐤𝐞 𝐂𝐎𝐍𝐂𝐄𝐍𝐓𝐑𝐀𝐓𝐄𝐃 𝐭𝐨 𝐒𝐔𝐒𝐓𝐀𝐈𝐍𝐀𝐁𝐋𝐄. (And those two aspects look VERY different).

Emergencies onboard business aircraft are thankfully rare, so passengers may often tune out preflight briefings, despite the vital information provided in them. If an emergency occurs, “it’s important to have passengers know how to use the doors, how to pull out fire extinguishers, where they’re located, what to do in a medical emergency, where the first aid kit is,” notes Christina Depew, a flight attendant for a Part 91 operation.
In this episode of NBAA’s “Flight Plan,” host Rob Finfrock speaks with:
