Jobs are never guaranteed; however all of our graduates are guaranteed to get interviews with our regional airline partners, Breeze, SkyWest Airlines & Mesa Airlines.
The first 6 weeks of our class is held online, from the comfort of your own home. Classes are scheduled each weeknight Monday thru Friday from 5:30pm to 9:30pm (Mountain time). This is taught as a live webinar class with a certified instructor. You are able to interact and ask questions during the online class.
(*Student's receiving tuition assistance through VA benefits including Post-9/11 GI Bill® will need to attend 8 weeks in a classroom setting.)
We do our best to work around your schedule. We ask that you attend the live webinar class as often as possible. If you have to miss a class for any reason, we have a recorded version available to watch within a few hours of each class ending every night. This allows our students to remain caught up, and it also allows them to go back and re-watch any classes that they need to refresh on as well.

Absolutely! We help each student individually prepare for their interviews. We teach you the most common interview questions both from a knowledge and technical perspective. All Aircraft Dispatch Academy students are well prepared for their interviews. However, it is always up to the individual student to impress them with your personality!
Air Traffic Controllers work directly for the FAA or for an FAA contractor. They typically work in the airport control tower or in an en-route air traffic control center. Their main priority is to maintain separation between aircraft and give clearances for taking off and landing. They do not allow anyone over the age of 31 to begin a career in ATC, they also have a mandatory retirement at age 55.
Aircraft Dispatchers work directly for each airline (Delta, United, American, SkyWest, Mesa, etc...). They typically work at the airline's headquarters in whatever city they are located. They do not work at the airports. Dispatchers are responsible for flight planning, fuel calculations, payload calculations, weather considerations, flight following. Together with the Pilot, the Dispatcher is jointly responsible for operational control and safe operation of each flight he/she dispatches and must follow all Federal Aviation Regulations.
