Paragraph 7.3.1(a) of the Flight Attendant Training Standard (Initial) states: “Each drill shall be performed using the appropriate aircraft or approved training device”.
The purpose of this exemption is to allow Jazz Aviation LP to conduct one window exit operation drill, by utilizing either a DHC-8 100/300 window exit or a CRJ 100/200/705 overwing exit (OWE) to qualify trainees on both aircraft types and meet the requirements of operating each window exit during Initial and Annual Flight Attendant Training as required by section 7.3.1(a) Initial Part Seven and section 7.1.1(a) Annual Part Seven of the Flight Attendant Training Standard.
This exemption is applicable only to Jazz Aviation LP’s flight attendant training programs, pertaining to the aircraft window exit operation drill.
This exemption is subject to the following conditions:
- Jazz Aviation LP shall amend its Initial and Annual Flight Attendant Training Programs to include and emphasize the differences between the DHC-8 100/300 window exit and the CRJ 100/200/705 OWE;
- Jazz Aviation LP shall use this exemption only and for the sole purpose of conducting Jazz Aviation LP’s flight attendant initial training and annual programs pertaining to the over wing exit operation drills;
- Jazz Aviation LP shall clearly identity in each flight attendant’s training record which window exit was used as an equivalent means to operating the other type of over wing exit for aircraft operation drills;
- Jazz Aviation LP shall ensure that each flight attendant attending initial and annual training meets all of the other applicable requirements as set in the CARs, the CASS and the Flight Attendant Training Standard.
This exemption is in effect until the earliest of the following:
