Pan Am International Flight Academy Hosts ABC’s “Pan Am” TV Premiere October 1, 2011

September 30, 2011– MIAMI  Pan Am International Flight Academy, headquartered in Miami, Florida, was host to a large enthusiastic crowd for the Sunday “Pan Am” ABC television series premiere.

The event was a huge success with over 100 former Pan Am Airways Flight Attendants and employees in attendance, many sporting authentic Pan Am uniforms from the glory days.


“The TV show was great, the company in attendance was even better,” said Patti Jackson, Pan Am reunion committee member. The event evoked treasured memories and rekindled old friendships. “It was exciting to see old friends and make new ones,” states Jackson. Pan Am employees are “like a big family,” remarked Harry Frahm who worked for over 30 years as a Pan Am purser (male flight attendant) and is now the VP Miami Chapter, World Wings International, Inc. “After 20 years we still get together for holidays.”
Viewers gathered in the main lobby of the Pan Am International Flight Academy building, home of the original training division for Pan Am Airways. Many attendees were astonished that a portion of Pan Am still existed. They were pleasantly surprised to find themselves surrounded by huge murals depicting the glory days of Pan Am. For Irene Schwarz, the flight academy was the perfect venue. “For us,” she says,” it was like coming home. Many of us were trained in this building and returned every year for additional flight attendant training.”

The preview event began with socializing and cocktail tables lined with Pan Am’s first class menu including smoked salmon, international cheese platters, prosciutto with melon and free flowing champagne. There was a tone of anticipation, as Irene Schwarz, V.P. Ways & Means Committee of World Wings International, Inc., noted, “Everyone was really excited and looking forward to the show.”

The anticipated premiere was viewed on a giant screen with theater-style seating. Carmen Von Lippke, Pan Am’s Director of Operations observed many of the former employees,” pinching each other, embracing and giggling during the show.” The ABC premiere was thoroughly enjoyed, eliciting cheers, laughter and clapping. “It was realistic. The consensus was everyone loved it,” commented Schwarz.

ABC Local 10 News Anchor, Laurie Jennings whose step-father worked as a Pan Am Captain, was thrilled to be in attendance for the premiere and provided live news coverage intermittently throughout the event.

The event was originally planned for a handful of people at the home of a former Pan Am flight attendant. As the list of attendees grew, the committee decided the perfect location for this large family gathering was Pan Am’s remaining home at the Miami airport. Word spread of the fabulous venue and over 130 people ended up attending. “Everyone wanted to be there at the Academy. After it was over people were dancing and didn’t want to leave,” said Schwarz. “It was a fabulous evening.”

Inquires and interviews welcome.

Sept 19, 2011, MIAMI —  Pan Am International Flight Academy is a scheduled stop for the much anticipated “Worldwide Family Reunion” of former Pan Am Employees being held October 20 – 23, 2011 in Miami, Florida.

Former employees, friends and family of Pan Am International Flight Academy’s founding airline, Pan American Airways, affectionately known as Pan Am, together with aviation aficionados from all over the globe and every division of the company, are expected to attend the reunion being held in the Dinner Key/Coconut Grove area of Miami. Attendees will be celebrating the Centennial of Aviation in Miami as they honor the enormous part the airline played in shaping aviation history while also marking 20 years since the close of one of the country’s most iconic pioneering companies.

Interest in “Pan Am” is at an all-time high. Along with the noteworthy rise and continued success of the former airline’s only remaining division, Pan Am International Flight Academy – providing training solutions worldwide, there is the much-anticipated ABC network television series “Pan Am,” and the musical “Catch Me If You Can” is now running on Broadway.

Pan Am International Flight Academy president Vito Cutrone enthusiastically welcomes former fellow employees: “…In many ways we are all part of a very special family with an aviation legacy second to none… Speaking of his own personal experience as a former Pan Am Airways pilot, managing director and head of its training division, Mr. Cutrone said: “…Working for Pan Am was an amazing experience!  It wasn’t unusual to be treated as if you were the U. S. Ambassador to the country you happened to be in…. such was the respect the airline had throughout the world.”  Pan Am intends to receive this special group with open arms and provide tours of its facilities and operations, which include over 19 different types of full-flight jet simulators.

The Pan Am Airways Memorabilia Store located within Pan Am International Flight Academy campus at the Miami International Airport, features a combination of original items, reproductions and new products adorned with the Pan Am logo that are difficult to find anywhere else. The Staff of the Pan Am Store are all original Pan Am employees and have a wealth of knowledge about the airline.

Other reunion events include a “Hangar Party,” to be held in the historic Coast Guard Hangar on the shores of Biscayne Bay in Dinner Key which the original Pan Am Clippers once called home during its pioneering days of aviation, as well as tours of the special exhibit “Aviation in Miami: The First 100 Years” at HistoryMiami in downtown Miami.
