Flight Attendant Certification Law and Legal Definition

A person can serve as a flight attendant aboard an aircraft of an air carrier only if such a person holds a certificate of demonstrated proficiency from the Administrator of the Federal Aviation Administration. This is known as Flight Attendant Certification. The Administrator will issue a certificate of demonstrated proficiency to an individual only after the Administrator is notified by the air carrier that the individual has successfully completed all the training requirements for flight attendants. [49 USCS § 44728]

Each certificate of demonstrated proficiency shall:

(1) be numbered ;

(2) contain the name, address, and description of the individual to whom the certificate is issued;

(3) be similar in size and appearance to certificates issued to airmen; and

(4) contain the airplane group for which the certificate is issued
