Industry outlook:
For the past 12 months, the industry has been picking up at an exponential rate. Sheffield has posted multiple job openings within the past year for the position of Aircraft Dispatcher, including openings for over 100+ companies, several of which are for multiple positions since October 31, 2021!

Many airlines have been visiting and teleconferencing with our students and virtually all of our graduates have found employment. We received testimonials virtually every day along with ‘success’ updates weekly.


Dear Eric,
Hello, I just wanted to check in now that it has been a few months since being at Sheffield. I applied for the dispatcher position that you posted for National Airlines and found out last Thursday I got the job! I start November 2. I am so excited! Thank you for having such a great program that helped prepare me to be able to get such a great position at a great company. I appreciate everything you have done for me and am very excited for the future! 
Best regards,
M. Laughlin 
National Airlines

followup from National:

Thank you for your feedback on the students. We are very happy to announce that 3 Sheffield students (2 with no prior dispatch experience) have successfully made the cut for the Aircraft Dispatcher position at National Airlines. 
They will start their Initial Dispatch training class in our Orlando HQ from tomorrow.  

(They are:)
M.L., T.M., and B.L.
Warm regards to everyone at Sheffield. 
P.K. – (Assistant Director SOC/ National Airlines

and this just in! As of the past few months, we’ve listed numerous jobs for our graduates!

Sheffield had 3 airlines visit in a recent class and the hiring trend is extremely high currently. Over 15 airlines have requested either a partnership deal with us and/or a scholarship program. We hope to see you in 2024 during our 76th-year Anniversary!

Often, Sheffield grads are hiring Sheffield grads, which is why attending a 76-year institution with the largest networking of all schools is usually the best choice, during difficult times or during normal times.

3 major airlines recently informed us that Sheffield School is the ONLY school they would consider hiring directly out of school – no experience needed. It DOES matter where you attend Aircraft Dispatcher school! Sheffield graduates not only enter the profession successfully and with the strongest foundation possible, but also STAY in the profession and move up the ladder! The last link proves it.

Best Regards,
