FAA-certified aircraft dispatchers…
They’re not air traffic controllers, pilots, meteorologists, mechanics or navigators. So who are they and what do they do?
A career as an aircraft dispatcher just may be the best aviation job you haven’t heard of. Dispatchers have a number of different responsibilities, including:
Flamingo Air’s Airline Ground Schools, located at Cincinnati, Ohio’s historic Lunken Airport, offers an Aircraft Dispatcher certification course that is designed specifically for working adults.
There is current demand for this profession. Every commercial flight must have a dispatcher. And all dispatchers who work for a Part 121 air carrier (commercial, scheduled airlines such as Delta) must hold an FAA dispatcher certificate. Part 91 (corporate) and Part 135 (charter) carriers do not require a certificate to work as a dispatcher.
There are many benefits to having a career as an FAA-certified aircraft dispatcher:
In addition, being part of an exciting industry like aviation allows you to work in a challenging, but rewarding environment with many opportunities for advancement.
The Aircraft Dispatcher distance-learning program at Flaming Air requires 200 hours of coursework. However, 152 of those hours can be completed online, from home. The last 48 hours are completed at an Airline Ground Schools campus, located in Cincinnati, Ohio, or Miami, Florida.
Airline Ground Schools is the quickest, most economical way to become an FAA-certified aircraft dispatcher. More information on the course can be found at www.flamingoair.net.
