Aircraft Dispatcher Certification and Recurrent Courses

Aircraft Dispatcher Certification Training (FAA)


Whether you're looking to enhance the capabilities of your Flight Operations or Dispatch department, earn an FAA License to start or further your aviation career, or simply want to try something new in an ever growing and exciting field, the FlightSafety Aircraft Dispatcher Certification Course is for you.

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.
