BUT LATELY…

(3rd scenario in the back of the flight simulator)

”give me a beer”

AN UNRULY PASSENGER, 
IN THIS CASE DEMANDING ALCOHOL, IS NOT THAT FAR FETCHED.

(Monica Sundseth – flight attendant)

11:25:54;22with the changes on board, with people having to wear masks, has caused a lot of anxiety.”

(Daniel Babor – Surpervisor Air Marshal in Charge, LA Field Office)

13:26:25;03when these flight attendants come out of this training, they walk away a lot more confident about their ability to handle a variety of situations.

CREW MEMBER SELF DEFENSE TRAINING, 
HAS SEEN RENEWED INTEREST AS THE NUMBER OF INCIDENTS HAS 
SOARED OVER THE PAST YEAR.

I’m not by nature a violent person // I’ve never been in this situation … what do you do when that moment freezes you

THE TRAINING COVERS 
A VARIETY OF SELF DEFENSE MOVES.
 

<nats from an instructor>

This palm to go through his chest and go back through his back…

I TOOK PART IN THIS SESSION AND LEARNED 
FIRSTHAND YOU CAN PUNCH, KICK, STOMP

<STOMP NATS>

AND EVEN GOUGE OUT THE EYES OF YOUR ATTACKER.
FOR SOME OF MY CLASSMATES, THE SKILLS SEEMED TO COME VERY NATURALLY!

(smaller woman yelling)

“Get back get back…”

AFTER LEARNING THE MOVES…

THE PARTICIPANTS ARE PUT TO THE TEST INSIDE THIS FLIGHT SIMULATOR, UNAWARE OF WHAT’S JUST AROUND THE CORNER OR DOWN THE AISLE 

(Renee Elmore – flight attendant)

14:13:11;24 I was thinking that this was for real. // You know, that // those guys could try to hurt me.

RENEE ELMORE BECAME A FLIGHT ATTENDANT IN JUST LAST FIVE YEARS,

SHE OFTEN FLIES *ON* SMALLER PLANES AND SOMETIMES IS THE ONLY FLIGHT ATTENDANT ON BOARD

WITH THIS TRAINING, SHE NOW FEELS READY TO FACE ANYONE AT ANY TIME.

(Renee Elmore – Flight Attendant)

14:14:13;24    I just feel so much more empowered and more confident that I will be able to defend myself
