When you receive your Aircraft Dispatcher certificate, you will feel prepared to launch your career at any airline. This certificate is issued by the FAA to those who have demonstrated both knowledge and practical skill in the technical field of airline operations. You’ll gain a wealth of knowledge about a variety of topics: high altitude meteorology, airline operations, Boeing 737 systems, and flight planning for high speed aircraft.
Courses required before testing for this certificate can be easily combined with several degree programs in both Aviation Management and in Professional Flight.
Only 49 institutions in the world have been approved by the FAA to offer courses for this certificate.
LETU's Aircraft Dispatcher Training Courses are designed to prepare you to take the FAA Aircraft Dispatcher Certification Practical Test and earn your certification.
Prerequisite Courses (Must be taken prior to taking dispatch courses):
Two courses are required before testing. Both courses are taken together during a five-week summer session.
Aircraft Dispatchers are a vital, yet unseen, part of airline operations. Both the airline captain and the dispatcher must agree that the flight can be completed safely before allowing the flight to depart.
Dispatchers plan flights, evaluate weather, ensure aircraft are loaded properly, and determine that all aviation regulations are complied with for every single flight the airline operates. They work closely with many team members in the airline’s operations center, which functions as the “nerve center” of the airline. Examples of jobs can include:
LETU Class of 2013
Dispatch Duty Manager, Trans States Airlines
LETU Class of 2006
Manager of Systems Operation Control, 21 Air
