The Aircraft Dispatcher program can prepare students for a career in aviation from the ground. FAR 121.533 states that both the airline captain and the dispatcher are held jointly responsible for the safety of the flight.
In cooperation with the pilot, the flight dispatcher furnishes a flight plan that enables the aircraft to arrive at its destination on schedule with the maximum payload and the least operating cost. The flight dispatcher considers en route and destination weather, winds aloft, alternate destinations, fuel required, altitudes, and traffic flow.
