Corporate Scheduler/Dispatcher

5 Days

Schedulers and dispatchers in corporate flight departments contribute to efficient and safe operations. FlightSafety International offers specialized training to partner in that mission. Our practical, interesting, real-world approach results in usable knowledge and clear understanding of the subject matter.
