Thursday 14th March 2013

European Corporate Flight Attendant's Committee gears up for EBACE Symposium.

With just over two months to go before the European Corporate Flight Attendant Committee (ECFAC) holds its Symposium at the European Business Aviation Convention and Exhibition (EBACE) in Geneva, May 20, interest in the dedicated Flight Attendant event is gathering momentum as major sponsors and distinguished speakers confirm their participation.

With the full backing of the National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) and European Business Aviation Association (EBAA), the newly formed committee's Symposium has attracted major sponsors from the business aviation community and is now in the final stages of confirming the remaining sponsorship opportunities for interested parties.  Companies that have confirmed their involvement include global aviation company, TAG Aviation; worldwide FBO and leading ground support organisation, Universal Aviation and leading business aviation services company, Gama Aviation along with executive ground transportation company, First Class Cars; high-end business aircraft charter operator, International Jet Club; high-quality cabin enhancement products supplier Eyelevel and executive in-flight dining provider, Alison Price On Air.

With a focus on providing a one-stop educational resource for the Flight Attendant sector, the Symposium will address a wide range of key issues including passenger and crew safety,  on-board catering issues and service delivery standards. With its first outing as organisers of the Symposium the ECFAC hopes to mirror the success of the highly popular NBAA Flight Attendant's Symposium in the USA.

Daniel Hulme, Managing Director of executive jet in-flight dining provider Alison Price On Air and Vice-Chair of the European Flight Attendant's Committee comments: "This year's Symposium is shaping up to be a very exciting event and offers delegates a superb opportunity to enhance their knowledge as well as benefit from networking. It's attracting a lot of interest from European Flight Attendants with over 100 expected to attend from across the continent. We are also delighted to confirm that EBAA Chairman and CEO Brian Humphries CBE will deliver the welcoming address." With the Symposium running in parallel alongside this year's EBACE, Flight Attendants will also benefit from networking with quality speakers without having to register for the full EBACE event.

The packed programme offers sessions on: Safety led by Sue Adair, Senior Cabin Safety Inspector at the CAA; FBO and Flight Attendant Communications; Far East and Middle East Culture and Catering; Aviation Catering and Safety Systems led by Paula Kraft of Aviation Catering Consultants; and Murray Law, Owner and founder of business aircraft charter operator, International Jet Club will lead the panel discussion on Galley Design. In what promises to be one of the most interesting presentations of the day, a Flight Attendant involved with a real life emergency will outline the event and how a well prepared Flight Attendant can avert disaster. The Symposium will close with a lively round table discussion followed by an opportunity to network with colleagues over cocktails. For further details please visit

The Committee held its inaugural meeting during the NBAA convention in Orlando in October 2012 and its goal is to represent the interests of European and Middle Eastern business aviation Flight Attendants in their roles as crew members aboard business aircraft and assist them in improving the safety, efficiency and effectiveness of business aircraft.

The Committee is chaired by Paul Milverton, Cabin Crew Training and Safety Manager for leading UK-based business Gama Aviation Ltd. and supported by distinguished members from the European business aviation community.
