Another Sichuan aviation school has recently introduced an “Air Security” program that trains flight attendants in martial arts… as long as they can meet the requirements.
Not only do flight hostesses and hosts at the Sichuan Southwest College of Civil Aviation (四川西南航空职业学院) need to be good looking, they also need to be at least 163cm and 174cm tall, respectively. Males can neither look too “feminine”, nor too “tough” and intimidating.
The program mainly trains students in handling life-threatening situations that involve weapons or explosives.
Similar to the flight attendants at training facilities in Chengdu and Hong Kong, students will learn martial arts, Wing Chun (咏春) and will undergo intensive military training.
