Lead Flight Attendant Training Instructor


Nancy Piastuch

Not just the CEO & Director of Academics, but also the Lead Flight Attendant Training Instructor at Flight Attendant JumpStart, it would not be an exaggeration to say that Nancy has been around the aviation field her entire life. Being part of the 4th generation in her family to have made a career within the aviation industry, you would be hard-pressed to find a more experienced and suitable person to prepare future generations of flight attendants.

Nancy had her humble beginnings in the field of aviation when she started working in her family’s FAA Certified Repair Station, Penn Yan Aero. The multiple advantages of growing up with a background in aircraft engine manufacturing and maintenance, allowed her to develop in the business, and eventually move on to manage multiple locations of their wholesale warehouse distribution centers.

In addition to being a current Flight Attendant, Nancy is a certified Travel Agent, has a degree in Travel & Tourism and a degree in Technical Management from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. An entrepreneur at heart, Nancy also owns two other businesses: Girls Fly Too! and Alluravia Travel. Girls Fly Too! is a business that specializes in aviation apparel and accessories for girls of all ages, and Alluravia Travel is a Travel Agency that assists clients in finding and booking their perfect vacation. A thoroughly accomplished business woman, she is a charter member and former President for the Central Florida Chapter of Women in Aviation, championing the cause for women in the entire field of aviation.

Nancy took her first steps into her Flight Attendant career after graduating from the predecessor to our program in 2008. As many flight attendants do, she began working at a smaller airline, spending several years as a flight attendant for a Delta regional carrier based in Atlanta. Today, she is happily employed as a Flight Attendant for a major airline, and is based in Orlando. Originally from Penn Yan, NY, she has lived in Orlando for over 20 years. As with all great people, Nancy doesn’t just spend her time teaching students how to be the best of the new generations of flight attendants. She and her husband Jim have four grown children and two little floofy dogs. They enjoy traveling the globe, volunteering in the local community, and spending time with family and friends.
