If you wish to work as a Cabin Crew in commercial air transport within a Member State of the European Community you
must hold a valid Cabin Crew Attestation (CCA). This is a certificate of professional competency which permits you to
discharge the duties of Cabin Crew on European Community registered aircraft. To be eligible for a CCA you must be at
least 18 years of age and have successfully completed the required initial training course and the associated
examination in accordance with EASA Aircrew Regulation Part-CC.
In the UK, initial training and examinations for applicants of CCA are conducted by companies approved to do so. The
UK CAA has compiled a list of companies who have been approved to provide initial training
and issue the CCA for that training.
Training courses leading to the deliverance of a CCA, and the organisations that conduct them, must be approved by
the competent National Authority. CAP 783 - 'Cabin Crew - Initial Safety
Training' contains instructions and procedures to be followed when applying for an approval.
In order to exercise the privileges of the CCA in any European Member State you must also comply with the relevant
operational requirements in accordance with the 'Air Operations Regulation' and with the medical fitness requirements of Part-MED in accordance with the 'Aircrew
Once you have your CCA (basic and generic safety training qualification), as a CCA holder you may only exercise the
privileges of the CCA provided:
On completion of aircraft type and operator conversion training you will be provided with a record as evidence of
that training. This details your CCA reference together with the aeroplane types and variant(s) that you are permitted
to operate. In addition it will indicate the date at which annual recurrent training and checking is next required for
the aeroplane type or variant(s).
If you are the holder of a cabin crew attestation and are enquiring about re-issue or replacement, you need to contact the organisation that issued your attestation. The CAA does not issue or re-issue cabin crew attestations and does not hold records of those issued.
