Just a reminder to all who want to check it out. Looks like lots of drama, what with tonight being Frontier's version of the Amazing Race. I guess poor old William has a Heart condition that acts up on the Roadblock.

I can't believe these losers were the best of what was available to Frontier. William shouldn't even be allowed any higher than a stepladder. What a bunch of dopes.

I watched a few minutes of Flight Attendant School tonight. After about 15 minutes without ever seeing an airplane I turned it off. At least Airline gives you a shot of a 737 every two to three minutes.

Airplanes are shown somewhat on the show, but it is obviously not the feature. It is more about how people react.

I also am curious as to how William is suitable to be a flight attendant. He seems like a stressed out individual that is scared of heights and has medical problems. Didn't he say he has chronic nosebleeds on airplanes? I am not trying to be mean to him, but he just doesn't seem suited for the job. I wouldn't want him trying to evacuate passengers in a burning plane.

Overall I like the show. It is interesting to see what goes on. But it definitely is a low budget show on a second rate channel. I don't think this is the type of show that will end up being shown in other countries (apart from Canada).



If you have never designed an airplane part before, let the real designers do the work!

I am very concerned about William's medical condition. It appears he has a heart condition and takes cumadin (or a similar blood thinner). If his nose starts bleeding in midair, he is in trouble. Aren't there minimum health standards for F/As? I would think a heart condition would disqualify anyone from being a F/A.

Flight attendants usually need a third class medical certificate.

To qualify for a third class medical certificate, pilots must meet the following requirements:

  • Distant vision: 20/40 or better in each eye separately, with or without correction
  • Near vision: 20/40 or better in each eye separately, with or without correction, as measured at a distance of 16 inches
  • Color vision: Demonstrate the ability to perceive the colors necessary for the safe performance of airman duties
  • Hearing: Demonstrate the ability to hear an average conversational voice in a quiet room, using both ears, at a distance of six feet, with their back turned to the examiner, or pass an approved audiometric test
  • Ear, Nose, and Throat: Exhibit no ear disease or condition manifested by, or that may reasonably be expected to be manifested by, vertigo or a disturbance of speech or equilibrium
  • Blood Pressure: Under 155/95
  • Mental Stability: No diagnosis of psychosis, bipolar disorder, or severe personality disorders
  • Substance Dependence: No dependence on alcohol or any pharmacological substance in the previous two years


These are the same requirements for a private pilot certificate. Here is a link to the FARs that list the exact requirements: http://www.studentpilot.net/fars/far67/partd.html. Heart problems only preclude a first class medical certificate (which is for commercial transport pilots).

In the first show they indicated that the Flight Attendant Trainees have to posess a Third Class medical certificate. Heart problems, especially those which require medication and especially blood thinners is usually a disqualification. Maybe he submitted adequate EKG's for the physical. I think there is more to the story than the show is telling us.
IMHO I think William will not make it to the end. I think at this point they have him under a microscope, waiting to drop the hatchet.

The link above didn't work, here is one that does

http://www.leftseat.com/far67.htm

FAR 67.311 states the following:

Sec. 67.311 Cardiovascular.

Cardiovascular standards for a third-class airman medical
certificate are no established medical history or clinical diagnosis of any of the following:
(a) Myocardial infarction;
(b) Angina pectoris;
(c) Coronary heart disease that has required treatment or, if
untreated, that has been symptomatic or clinically significant;
(d) Cardiac valve replacement;
(e) Permanent cardiac pacemaker implantation; or
(f) Heart replacement.


What Is Angina?

Angina (an-JI-nuh or AN-juh-nuh) is chest pain or discomfort that occurs when your heart muscle does not get enough blood. Angina may feel like pressure or a squeezing pain in your chest. The pain may also occur in your shoulders, arms, neck, jaw, or back. It may also feel like indigestion.

William had a good case of chest pains which would be considered angina. I would also say that collapsing in a hallway under exertion would definitely be clinically signifigant.
The complete FAR is available on the FAA website as a .pdf.
