Airline Dispatcher

The Falcon Aviation Academy Airline Dispatcher Program is designed to prepare the student to become a certificated dispatcher. The course is a comprehensive airline dispatcher training program taught under the FAA rules and regulations.

 An airline dispatcher shares the responsibility of a flight with the aircraft captain when planning and conducting the release of all FAR 121 flights. At the completion of the course, the student will be prepared for the FAA Dispatcher knowledge test and the FAA practical test.

 The course meets the required 200 classroom instructional hours and lasts for a continuous 8-12 weeks. Classes are held at our Peachtree City location. We offer both daytime and evening class schedules. Please see the upcoming class dates below and get your deposit in today!
