Become an Aircraft Dispatcher – Military

Sheffield School of Aeronautics’ full-time, 5-week course is approved for Veteran’s training.

There’s no better alternative for your Aircraft Dispatcher Certification training than the world’s oldest and most prestigious dispatch school. We’ve originated the course and have set the standards for certification training for 75 years and counting. At Sheffield School of Aeronautics, we’ll help you make the transition from a Military Career to a civilian airline career.

“Instructed to attend Aircraft Dispatcher school by my military organization (U.S. Navy). Availability of class and reputation of Sheffield by my supervisors, were the driving (factors).”
B.J. Sept. 2006

Military pilots, flight engineers, navigators, flight planners/followers, air traffic controllers, Base Operations personnel, etc. We can provide you with the proper certification training needed for your transitional phase into the civilian airline world. With that being said, airlines respect a military background. When you couple the latter with a Dispatcher Certificate achieved at the Industry-recognized World Leader in Operational Control training, you are effectively marketing yourself to all knowledgeable airlines.

At our aeronautics school, we provide real-world training with real-world tools. Students at Sheffield School of Aeronautics have their own work station, including computers for flight planning, weather retrieval, live traffic monitoring, and more. Students are given the proper tools to succeed at Sheffield, and we’re here to provide everyone enrolled with anything they need to get them to where they need to be! Train with Sheffield to join the many others currently employed in this wonderful industry.

Sheffield School of Aeronautics will train you to meet and exceed FAA standards. After our students graduate, they are a part of Sheffield for life, not simply during your time enrolled in our school. We believe in providing quality and service to our students, to assist them in their career endeavors, to push them to a limit they may have never been before, and to provide a confidence level to help them sustain their success within the airline industry.

Note: If searching a Government/military database, if you cannot find Sheffield School of Aeronautics, our course and school name may be found under ALRON Aviation, Inc. Both names are allotted to the same course at our aeronautics school.
