Mr. Eric Morris,
of all I'd like to thank you for all the support you gave me. Becoming
an Aircraft Dispatcher was my long dream since I was (a) young student.
Mr. Morris taught me conscientious instructions, which I believe,
will be helpful..
this happy news to all of family members of mine, and they were very
happy about the certificate. Also, I told them how
inspiring the Sheffield life had been!
visit you in the future for the international
course, etc..for sure. I'm looking forward to meeting you again!
Have a nice X'mas!!

I did not get a chance to talk to you after my exams, and just wanted
to say thank you. I have learned so much in your class and was very
impressed by your staff as well as your whole set up. It was a fun,
yet challenging course. I will always speak very highly of your program,
and will send as much business your way as I can. Keep up the good
work. Thanks for setting up my login.
is what may happen when an airline tries to save $$$ and do the certification

...the training of the thirty-odd new dispatchers was not without
considerable pain -
I'm confident that the Sheffield way would have
certainly been more efficient.
As always, Best Regards,
(airline employee/Sheffield graduate)
Extended training, overtime pay, future substandard flight planning
= LOSING $$$.

Just wanted to let you know that I have just accepted a position with
Horizon Air as an Aircraft Router.....I start on Nov 2nd........This
is a great opportunity for me because I will be the Flight Control
Manger's right hand man and the position is viewed by some as a stepping
stone into a Flight Control Manger position...

not remember me, but you went out of your way to write a letter of
introduction for me to xxx xxx Airlines back in September of 2003.
I got the job and have been with them ever since. ...It's the best
job I've ever had. I love every minute of it and it's all due to the
excellent education I received at Sheffield and the letter you took
the time to write for me. Thank you for all your help!

Hello Eric, Brett, and Katja,
Life is pretty good here... I have been
signed off and dispatching at (airline) on my own for
about 3.5 months and feeling more comfortable each
day. We work 4 10-hr shifts and bid on 3-month
schedules. ...overall have a highly competent group of dispatchers
several Sheffield graduates. (My future manager) mentioned
specifically in our interview that Sheffield
were consistently among the best dispatchers out on
the floor. In fact, I was asked just yesterday to
conduct OJT for one of the new-hires beginning this
I hope all is well in sunny south Florida! I look
forward to seeing you all again soon...Thanks again for
helping launch my new career so quickly with your
excellent courses and world-class instruction!

Just wanted to drop you a line to say thanks for providing a great
From my initial enquiry to graduation Sheffield provided a professional
and high-quality approach in conducting the training.
... excellent instructor, very knowledgeable in the subjects he delivered,
took a genuine approach in helping students and has an excellent ability
to break down complex concepts into easy to understand format.
All the best

Well, I interviewed in San Juan and everything went very well. ...about
the pre-interview test and I must say, it was not really what I was
expecting. ...but I think I got all but about 2-3 of them. I thought
it was very challenging .... I should start off by saying that they
told me I scored the highest on it of anyone that's ever taken it
(Thank you Scott!).
Well, I want to think you again for the training and all the advice.
Sheffield was a wonderful experience for me and it got me what I wasn't
able to get myself in the last two years, an airline job!!!!!! Thanks
a million and I'll be seeing you guys within a year when I come back
for a refresher.

Hello Ron, Eric and the rest of the Sheffield staff,
I attended Sheffield the summer of 1996. I haven't been back in touch
with anyone there since I graduated..I just wanted to write to let
you know how much I enjoyed the school
and appreciate the excellent instruction that we were given.
Within about two months of leaving Sheffield I was hired by Trans
States Airlines in St. Louis and I spend about a year and a half there.
I was then hired by Mesaba Airlines of Minneapolis in Jan of 1998.
After working at Mesaba for two and a half years I interviewed and
was hired as an Assistant Dispatcher for Northwest. With the events
of 9/11 I was laid off for almost three years but returned last June
and upgraded to Dispatcher during January of this year. I just moved
into an Operations Planner position which is part of the same office
Thank you all for providing the foundation
to my career. The friendly staff and beautiful surroundings were as
memorable as all the hard work that was put into studying and exams.
I hope everyone is doing well and I hope to someday stop in to say
Take care and thanks again,
Katja, Ron, Brett, Scott and Bruce,
