The Flight Dispatch Induction course is a 3 day interactive programme which addresses both the role and working life of Commercial Airline Flight Dispatcher. A Flight Dispatcher is responsible for gathering all relevant data pertinent to a specific departure. A Flight Dispatcher’s role involves a lot of pressure, but it is a career that is hugely rewarding. Making sure aircraft operate on schedule is a vital part of airport life and it is the Flight Dispatcher who takes this responsibility while determining the fuel requirements, load planning and the safe turnaround of an aircraft. A full driving licence is required for employment in this area.
