Grandfather, Mark Heydon, who turns 63 next month, was a civil service worker.
But his age didn’t get in the way of fulfilling his dreams.
After he was made redundant as a family first officer, he decided to become a flight attendant.
His role is now very different but he has taken to it quickly because he is such a natural at customer service.
Grandfather Becomes Flight Attendant
Mr Heydon said he chose to become a flight attendant because he felt doing something different would be good for him.
“I think a number of things keep you young and a new challenge, doing something that frightens you, is one of them.”
“Clearly this one was frightening in a sense in that you never knew what was in front of you. It was about the unknown really – would I cut it, and so on.”
You’re indeed an inspiration to all of us Mr. Heydon.
