Airplane Dispatchers

Exploring This Job

Besides pursuing the course of study mentioned previously, there is little opportunity for an individual to explore the field of airplane dispatching directly. Part-time or summer jobs with airlines may provide interested students with a chance to observe some of the activities related to dispatching work. You can cultivate your interest in aircraft and aviation through reading and participating in flying clubs. Talk with an airplane dispatcher about his or her career. Ask your school counselor for help arranging an interview.
