So, you’re interested in becoming an Aircraft Dispatcher… check out your future career!

Have you ever wondered what it takes to get an airplane off the ground? In fact, it takes a lot more than the Captain and crew of the airplane. Someone has to do the planning necessary to ensure a safe and comfortable flight for the passengers, and that person is the Aircraft Dispatcher. An airplane can’t even take off until a flight release is signed by both the Captain and the Dispatcher.
