While the range and capacity of USAPAT's aircraft are important, it's the quality of the crews that allows the organization to provide outstanding service, Griffin said.
"While every member of each aircrew is important to the mission, I often say that our flight stewards are the 'face' of USAPAT as far as our passengers are concerned, because it's the stewards who most often interact with the people in the passenger compartment," Griffin said.
Since their primary mission is to ensure the safety of the passengers, the stewards go through extensive cabin-attendant, safety and medical training to enable them to deal with potential in-flight emergencies, said CW5 Terry Myers, USAPAT's operations officer.
Planning for each USAPAT flight is undertaken by the organization's 11-person operations cell, Myers said.
