Redefining In-Flight Catering

Aircare International and Air Culinaire Worldwide Team Up to Provide Food Safety Training for Business Aviation

Tucson, Arizona (June 30, 2015) –Aircare International announced today at the NBAA’s Flight Attendants / Flight Technicians Conference that they have teamed with Air Culinaire Worldwide to provide food safety training to business aviation crewmembers. The training options, which include safety food handling, gluten-free cooking, and a guide to food allergies, will be available through Aircare’s FACTS Training program online. The courses are also available through Air Culinaire Worldwide in a classroom setting.

“Aircare FACTS Training is world-renowned for providing the best crewmember safety training available to business aviation,” said John Detloff, Vice President, Flight Attendant Services, Air Culinaire Worldwide. “Teaming with Aircare is a natural fit and ensures that our high standards for training are continuously met.”

The two companies will also leverage the new business relationship to provide catering and service instruction for initial cabin crew indoctrination training, as well as advanced service training during Aircare FACTS classes. This includes the installation of food prep stations at Aircare’s west coast training facility in Long Beach, California.

“We’re very excited about being able to take our cabin crew service training to a new level with Air Culinaire Worldwide,” said Brian Hayvaz, Vice President of Operations for Aircare International. “The cabin crews we train are going the be the safest and most prepared in our industry.”

Safe food handling and food allergens are a serious concern aboard business aircraft where limited preparation space and the isolated nature of travel, especially on long-haul flights, can pose serious health dangers to passengers and crew. Aircare FACTS Training teaches crewmembers how to deal with emergencies, including medical emergencies as part of their courses.
