Well I just received my results for the COIN3 test, which based on some questions, spits out three careers that would be good for you. One of the careers I received was a Flight Attendant, which really interests me.
All this past week at our school, we have been talking about colleges and all that nice stuff. Now my question is, besides high school, what other education is needed, if any? What kind of people are airlines looking for? Any recommendations? All help is welcome!

As far as I know, besides high school, language skills tend to be an important asset. Here in Brazil the license is issued by gov. authorities, so it is not the airline who gives you the proper qualification. Companies are responsible for specific plane types though.

In The Netherlands, correct Dutch plus 2 foreign languages, 21 years of age, an equivalent of a college degree preferably in a tourism related field and/or work experience in a customer service field. Selections for KLM are pretty strict, and many drop out during the course as Flight Safety can be very taxing when you first see it.
Surely some colleges have F/A as a subject? It's probably called something like Aviation Service Manager ?
