My company is currently looking for 2-3 experienced dispatchers as we speak

Secondly, you must be able to pass a written test, and oral and practical examination given by an FAA certified examiner, and it ain't cheap!
|Quoting Goldenshield (Reply 10):|
I was actually referring to the whole course, but yeah, I could've worded that better.
|Quoting Goldenshield (Reply 14):|
You took advantage of that 'flight follower' provision in the regulations. You lucked out on that one.
|Quoting Flyidaho (Reply 17):|
One written-its a version of the ATP with a lot less pallet weight questions-and one test is the oral. Pass both and you win
|Quoting L-188 (Reply 21):|
A lot of people however think the "Oral" and the "Practical" are two different boards. That was one sitting for me.

|Quoting Dw747400 (Reply 31):|
Given the difference in the duties, do they both still require the same licensing?

My old SOC director from Mesa when over to your company to work in dispatch ground school.
|Quoting Flyidaho (Reply 36):|
Am I right though about getting into dispatch there, may have to ramp for some years before there might be an opening? That's at least what I've always heard anyway.

121 being much more of an animal than 135. For 135/125/91 - it depends on what the carriers operation specifications entail - but for the most part 135/125/91 dispatch is flight coordination (manifests, flight following, aircraft support arrangements, permit acquisitions, etc). Some 135/125/91 operators will extend more oversight and planning functions to their flight coordination/dispatch department (i.e. NetJets). Scheduled 121 dispatch encompasses full flight planning and progress functions in a regulatory operational control environment

Add me to the list, dispatching / ops control since 1999 for a cargo carrier. Couldn't be happier.
|Quoting L-188 (Reply 43):|
And it is possible to work all three enviroments from the same chair. I know one dispatch office that supports a 121 freight operation, a 125 fuel tanker operation and a 135 charter operation out of the same chair.
|Quoting Flyidaho (Reply 12):|
Pay aint that great when starting out but can build quickly. In 1999 I started with Mesa at $24K, when I left after 5 years I had topped out at the then-current pay scale of $38K.
