Jorenzo about aviation

Jorenzo is 18 years old and he is learning to become an aviation service employee. (cabin attendant). When Jorenzo was a little boy he used to look at the sky, and looking at the planes he couldn’t help but think “Why do people get on plains, are they crazy? So dangerous. But I still felt the urge to try it someday. On the 23rd of april 2011 I flew to Turkey with Transavia, my first flight ever! Transavia has been in my heart ever since. i was so fascinated looking at the cabin attendant, so friendly and always smiling. But being a cabin attendant is so much more then just serving coffee.”

Little did Jorenzo know, this one flight would awaken his passion for aviation. Flying is the perfect combination of all his interests: topography, cultures, traveling and being free, free from the ground. “I just love that feeling when we have lift of, you feel free, leaving all your troubles behind.”

Jorenzo started his education back in 2016, after 5 years of dreaming about aviation, he could finally make his dream a reality. “They teach us so many different things during our training, not only how we have to serve coffee, or how we have to give service to people, we also have to be able to evacuate the plane within 90 seconds! I started my Internship on Schiphol airport, my second home by now. I started with six months of assisting passengers at Schiphol airport. At this moment Im following an attestation training, completing this training will give me permission to fly. We are learning all the command’s and this train will teach us how to deal with aggressive passengers and hijacks.” It’s a scary idea that this might happen, the chances are slim but we have to be prepared for every situation.

Why Transavia?
“I just love Transavia, it’s hard to explain why I like Transavia the most. But look at it this way: I love Céline Dion, not everyone likes her voice, but I love her, it’s a feeling.”
.
Away from home.
“Transavia makes it possible to return to your homebase. (Amsterdam, Eindhoven, Rotterdam) You are able to stay at a location overnight when a flight is longer then 6 hours. And there is also a possibility at KLM to stay in another country to broaden your horizon. What the future will bring for me? I just have to work hard and take one step at a time. Only time will tell.”
