Among the air crew we are used to see while flying, there are some special air safety officers. Sometimes they work as graceful and friendly stewardesses but when needed, they will become "iron women" to protect the safety of passengers and planes.

Chengdu East Star Airlines Travel College — located in Wenjiang District of Chengdu, capital of southwest China's Sichuan Province — is one of the schools where these female air safety officers get their training. All the safety officers are selected from stewardesses and have to go through a tough training.

In addition to learning code of conduct for flight attendants, the selected crews have to attend combat, survival and military training on daily basis.

"Once an emergency arises during the flight, the safety officers have to respond and solve the problem immediately. Therefore, training on reaction speed and anti-terrorism capacity is essential," said Gu Yingzhi, the dean of the college.
