On the outskirts of Beijing, a company called Tianjiao Special Guard/Security Consultant offered a course in flight safety at a flight attendant training center. Inspired by the missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, the company said it wanted to emphasize the importance of aviation safety by teaching their trainees emergency evacuation procedures and close-quarter combat skills to handle situations such as natural disasters and plane hijackings.
