An Aircraft Dispatcher (ADX) is a licensed airman certificated by the 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 authority to delay or cancel flights if unsafe conditions exist. They disseminate flight information to the company and are the source of information provided 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 successfully 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 and documents, as well as practical applications of all topics. In addition, special 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 individual operations.
The Aircraft Dispatcher Oral Exam Guide provides current dispatchers with a thorough review for their annual proficiency checks, and is also beneficial to airmen and aspiring airline pilots seeking a better understanding of dispatch flight operations.
