Aircraft Dispatcher

This certification course enhances the capabilities of your flight operations or dispatch department, and helps individuals earn an FAA License to start or further an aviation career. The Aircraft Dispatcher, also known as a Flight or Airline Dispatcher, is responsible for authorizing and overseeing the operation of a flight from before takeoff to after landing. Often referred to as “The Pilot on the Ground”, the Dispatcher prepares flight plans, taking into account important factors such as weather conditions, fuel requirements, and potential hazards, with full knowledge of aircraft systems and FAA regulations, to ensure the safe completion of flight.

Corporate Scheduler/Dispatcher

Schedulers and dispatchers in corporate flight departments contribute to efficient and safe operations. Our practical, interesting, real-world approach results in usable knowledge and clear understanding of the subject matter, and is particularly relevant to part 135 operators. Most of the course content is often not addressed during on-the-job training, so such a training opportunity provides an excellent supplement to internal training. We present subjects with orientation toward how each affects daily flight operations from a scheduler/dispatcher’s perspective including common terminology, acronyms and abbreviations. An interactive, engaging learning experience results in valuable, relevant knowledge and practices that can improve any flight department’s professionalism, efficiency, and safety.
