CPR and First Aid Training for Flight Crews

One of my favorite jobs was working as a flight attendant. I loved most aspects of being a member of a flight crew. I didn't realize back then how important safety is when you're 30,000 feet above ground.

If a medical emergency occurs on an airplane, it is crucial that the flight crew be trained to perform CPR and provide first aid until the plane can land and someone with more advanced training arrives and takes over.

As a member of the flight crew, you play an important role in your passenger's safety. If a medical emergency occurs on board during a flight, CPR training can be the difference between life and death for a traveler. Of course, you hope to never to need to utilize the skills, however it's best to be prepared if the need arises.


CPR certification is a vital skill for flight attendants. Not only is CPR training a great way to develop your skills and enhance your resume as a flight attendant, but it is also, likely, a job requirement for your airline. Many airlines conduct regular CPR drills and ask their crew to be CPR certified. If you’re applying to flight crew roles, having CPR and first aid certification under your belt is a good way to stand out among candidates.

Many airlines do not require pilots to be CPR and/or first aid trained, however even though it's not required it's a good idea for all flight crew members to be CPR and first aid trained.

If someone on the plane is experiencing a medical emergency, the flight attendants will utilize their first aid and CPR skills and knowledge, ask if anyone onboard has medical training, notify the captain, and provide appropriate care to the victim.
