The information in this book will serve you well on your exciting career path as an Aircraft Dispatcher: a critical link in air safety and a viable career option for many aviators.
An Aircraft Dispatcher (ADX) is a licensed airman certificated by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), typically employed by airlines or companies operating large transport-category aircraft, who has joint responsibility with the captain for the safety and operational control of flights. Dispatchers legally authorize flight departures and have the authority to delay or cancel flights if unsafe conditions exist. They disseminate flight information to the company and are the source of information supplied to the traveling public.
The FAA Practical Exam for Aircraft Dispatcher is equivalent to the Airline Transport Pilot (ATP) oral exam that an airline captain must complete. This Aircraft Dispatcher Oral Exam Guide prepares you for the exam with an explanation of the certification process, knowledge requirements in a question-and-answer format, and reference materials for further study. It covers the aircraft dispatcher Practical Test Standard subject areas such as route planning, regulations, training, and currency requirements, certification, responsibilities and authority, aviation weather, manuals, documents, and practical applications of all topics. In addition, particular emphasis is placed on common areas of focus for the exam: situational questions and a generic guide to the proper systems and procedures you can apply to the specific aircraft used in your operations.
The Aircraft Dispatcher Oral Exam Guide provides current dispatchers with a thorough review for their annual proficiency checks. It is also beneficial to airmen and aspiring airline pilots seeking a better understanding of dispatch flight operations. Author David C. Ison has been involved in the aviation industry for over 32 years as a flight instructor, a college professor, and an ATP for regional and major airlines flying domestic and international routes.
