Have you ever had a shitty job with problematic co-workers and even worse clientele? Same.
Private Flight Attendants, also known as CFAs (Corporate Flight Attendants) deal with the worst of the worst daily. So You Want To Fly Private: The Rules showcases true accounts of what it’s like to work as a CFA in private aviation, an industry that hasn’t progressed much since the 1970s. From Sugar Babies and wild Karens to toxic, misogynist bosses who don’t understand the meaning of consent, So You Want To Fly Private: The Rules paints a messy picture of a famously secretive industry using the same uncensored (and darkly comedic) rhetoric found in venting sessions with co-workers over happy hour drinks at the bar.
Shannon McDermott is an Autistic creative artist based in New York City. Through her creative work, she aims to normalize Autistic voices and Autism inclusion within the entertainment industry. Shannon is also passionate about social justice issues, especially as they apply to women. She decided to give voice to her friends in the private aviation world with this series after spending many a night listening to them vent about their jobs over happy hour drinks. Her snarky, dry comedic writing style lends itself well to So You Want To Fly Private: The Rules as it resembles the sarcastic rhetoric and inside jokes expressed between co-workers ranting about their shitty jobs...because who doesn't have a shitty job these days?
Shannon holds a Bachelor of Arts in Theatre Arts and English Writing and Rhetoric from St. Edwards University in Austin, TX.
K.J. Dawson is a published author and the creator of
So You Want to Fly Private? THE RULES. She is also an FAA certified Corporate Flight Attendant (CFA) and the inspiration for the character Jenny Jetway!
She began her career, as many CFA's do, working as a bartender and was eventually lured into the profession by pilots who also happened to be her bar patrons with a promise of traveling the world and gaining cultural experience. After spending more than a decade working with some of the most prominent charter companies in private aviation, she decided it was time to tell her story and inspire change in a seriously outdated industry.
