“While the cost of training is a factor which must be considered, the true cost is found in the quality of the product. For this very reason we chose Sheffield. Their experience and commitment to quality in all phases of instruction is unequaled.” Hank Echols – (fmr) Director Flight Control-July 2000, (fmr) FAA Aviation Safety Inspector

Ron Morris and his staff have the experience and expertise to deliver the superior product that Delta demands.” Frank Shea – (fmr) Director of Flight Operations & Chief Dispatcher Delta Air Lines

"I wanted to reach out to let you know that training at (airline) is in full swing and I couldn’t be happier that I chose Sheffield. My classmates, while very smart, definitely had subpar training and that has been very evident. I have waited to write a full-scale review of the school until I was able to get my hands dirty at (airline) to see what the working world was really like. I can safely say I will be writing a wonderful review of the school and am encouraging others to attend. Big thanks to (Sheffield) for the top-notch instruction.: S.E.

"I just wanted to say thank you so much for your dedication to your job. I highly respect you and regard you as one of the best instructor/teachers I’ve ever known. You uphold the standard of excellence in such a way that it compels your students to get better every day. I want you to know that every error in my work and studies has driven me to learn from it. Each failure is an opportunity to learn from it and to get better. I must commend you that you are a gifted communicator. You can take very complex ideas and explain them in ways that make the material accessible and memorable. Thank you for doing what you do day in and day out to help mold students into what they need to be."

"Finally scored my dream job of dispatch at Southwest Airlines. Thanks for everything you all prepared me for and know that a couple years after graduation, my interview panel still pointed out ”Sheffield grad eh”. Some say it doesn’t matter where you get your certificate. Anyone having been in my seat a few weeks ago knows "differently. Thanks again!

For all future students: This school has very high standards, it is intensive and they are giving you a huge amount of information. Just be ready to learn, if you are willing to learn and understand you will have full support from instructors…They will give you all that you need to pass the course, yours in only to know. After every day you will feel exhausted but valuable. And once you finish and graduate you will feel like the (whole) world is yours, and it is. I highly recommend your school to anyone who would like to work the aviation.

"I came in as a complete newbie. No prior aviation experience. I went to Sheffield 10 years ago. I was in a class with many students who had dispatch experience. It was five weeks of very intense classroom, and I spent every day and night after class studying. I thought at times I was not going to make it, but somehow, I passed everything. I worked for 3 years at a regional airline in Arizona, before going back to the DFW area to do dispatch for a corporate aviation airline for 6 years. I have since moved on from aviation, but it was a great experience for me. … I appreciate the intensity of the school. Thank you again"

I believe that Sheffield was a smart choice for myself and helped me have a strong command of the dispatch function and was more than adequate in preparing me for my Flight Dispatch career. Having worked with, trained, and hired dispatchers, Sheffield graduates consistently prove to have a better grasp on the regulatory and flight planning aspects of the job. That doesn’t mean that other schools didn’t do an adequate job but there was always, IMO, a clear distinction. Of those that did well coming from other schools, it usually could be attributed to personal work ethic and extra work on their part."

"…I just wanted to say thank you for the education that I received at Sheffield. I have also recently accepted a position as an Aircraft dispatcher with Republic Airways in Indianapolis. Ruben is an amazing instructor, one can tell that he really loves his job. He takes the time to make sure that everyone understands the material and answers all questions that students have while keeping the class on the schedule. If a student has questions Ruben offers one on one time at the end of class every day. Ruben and Brett both have a way of making the complex wording of the regulations into a context that is far less daunting and easier to comprehend (No alternate required for a flag flight)."

"I wanted to thank you again for the time spent working with me during the past few months and the two weeks I was here in FLL (Plantation, FL – Sheffield School). The amount of information I learned in this class was more than I learned in my four years of college and the 5+ years in the airlines. I thank you for being tough and thorough even if it was for something simple as putting a ‘ at the end of a ceiling or RVR. This course was designed perfectly for someone who wants to succeed and absorb not only the basic information but even more to further their career in the airlines and put themselves ahead of the potential hiring candidates. Again, thank you very much! …

"I hope things are going well down in FLL at Sheffield. ..Desk training has been going really well, had my first diversion a few weeks ago. We are slated to finish our competency checks and be signed off near the end of March. I feel ready, my training at Sheffield has certainly set me apart. Thankful to have been hired so soon after finishing my certificate, that certainly helped."

To all the Sheffield Instructors,…I wanted to again thank you for the course, your professionalism throughout, the standards you set, and for your continued support in helping me achieve my goal. I sincerely appreciate your responsiveness to my questions, helping within areas where I lacked understanding (which was plenty), and for your clear and thorough explanations. It was a pleasure meeting and working with you both, online and in person. I have learned a lot of content but also tried to learn from your teaching techniques. One of the things I expressed to my boss when I returned was how impressed I was with your questions for exams (online, written, and in person).
