-Casey Stegall live in Fort Worth, Texas spent some time at the American Airlines Training Academy.
I've seen a preview of this.
You should watch your screen.
Casey, to you.
-Shepard, it's not my jazz hands.
Don't make fun of me.
Once they graduate this eight-and-a-half-week course, they are going to join the more than 16,000 flight attendants currently working for American Airlines.
We're on board a mock-up of a Boeing 767.
This is, of course, a very realistic training.
They can do everything like simulating onboard fire emergencies, obviously the operation of the emergency exits because they're all different.
And then in this building, there are simulators all over the place, simulators for all five types of planes American Airlines flies 44 and also this 9-1/2-foot deep swimming pool.
Now, this is an actual flight attendant training class underway.
This is where they practice all of their water drills, all of their evacuations.
Again, American Airlines tells us the idea is to make this feel as real as possible to get it to the real deal.
-We want all of our flight crews to have a hands-on experience during the training process, so that in the event that something happens in reality, then everything is automatic.
Aacareers.com is where you can go to get more information.
So far, they've had more than 50,000 applicants, but this training is happening through the end of the year.
Shepard, the nearest exit may be behind you.
-You went down a slide during one of the afternoon hours.
Where's the slide? -The slide is over there and we're trying to change it up a little bit.
We wanna get in the field for the aquatic section of the training.
No jazz hands, you caught me.
Fox report viewers have been cheated out of a slide.
