MOJAVE, Calif., May 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Bill Korner, Chairman and CEO of Flight Research states that "'Loss of Control In-Flight' is the leading cause of aviation accidents today." It is important for every flight department from the major airlines to your corporate flight department to recognize that the entire crew should be well prepared for any situation that would arise. In order to be the best Flight Attendant and Crew it is necessary to be able to recognize and recover from both upsets and aftermath of these events. Flight attendants are the first responders in an in-flight emergency. The majority of incidents and accidents are due to upset or unusual attitude while in flight. While a trained pilot can successfully recover an aircraft within minutes or seconds, flight attendants will need to quickly and effectively respond to passengers who may have been injured or become ill during the incident and recovery process.
