Flight attendants?

I used to be a flight attendant (commercial). Now, i'm trying to get on with a corporate/charter airline. Is there anyone out there who is currently doing this, and if so, can you help? It seems it's hard to get on with a corporate airline. Any suggestions on corporate airline names, contacts, etc.?

    This training program is designed for the person who wants a career as a business aviation flight attendant. Our training has been taught for almost nine years and 84% of the people we have trained are all successfully flying either full time or on a contractual basis for Fortune 500 Corporate Aviation Flight Departments throughout the US and Europe. It is a detailed and comprehensive training for the person that has no aviation experience at all as well as for the commercial flight attendant that wishes to transition from Part 121 to Parts 91/135. Our focus is on the necessary skills, tools and the basic standard operational procedures utilized by most corporate business aviation flight departments. You will learn who the corporate flight attendant is and the actual way in which to do the job from start to finish. It is a three day training curriculum that details our specific job related procedures. We will teach you business applications that will enable you to be successful in this work, catering, the trip from start to finish and in depth international trip planning.

    It outlines in great depth an abundance of catering information, marketing tools, managing yourself as a business, corporate flight department interaction, international trip planning, professional image development, corporate client culture and the A-Z's needed to be a successful corporate flight attendant. In every training a "corporate specific" known caterer in the US co-teaches the communications skills a corporate flight attendant must know and the ways in which to expedite an order after you have designed it for your trip. This three day training is taught in Long Beach, CA. Philadelphia, PA. Boston, MA. Denver, CO. Atlanta, GA. It is also taught in conjunction with FlightSafety International at their Learning Centers in Atlanta and Teterboro throughout the year.

    Excellent shaggy dog story!If I have been the flight attendant I could have answered as a substitute prosaicly however competently as below "Greetings Princess. Welcome to(title the nation to which the aircraft belonged)! However, we assume viewers to our nation to discover the legislation of the land. And in case you're conscious, Princess, a aircraft is a side of the nation to which it belongs.Only it's airborne! Now be a best,Princess and (in a barking tone)Put up your tray instantly." That is the right authorized function. And it could had been a right rejoinder to a 'Princess' with a blown up head.

    NetJets is the leader right now. But Flight Options is out there as well. Both are good places to work for FA's and pilots alike. I don't know if they are hiring but they both have websites that you could check out. Maybe Flex Jet as well?

    Good luck
