Graduate Testimonials 2006

Hi Eric,

I don’t know if you remember me or not but you helped me refresh my dispatcher memory back in March of this year when I had an interview with..United Parcel Service. I was not initially offered a position but they called me last week and have hired me. I begin on Sept the 5th in Louisville, Ky.

I wanted to send you an email and thank you again for all the information that you supplied me with prior to my interview…I appreciate everything you did. Thanks for all your help!!

Just to let you know that I was hired by —— –C and begin tomorrow. Apparently another Sheffield grad from about 6 years ago works there also although we haven’t met yet. “–”, who I interviewed with, was commenting that he’d interviewed grads of —— Academy over the last few years and most couldn’t spell TAF or METAR, let alone read one. Thanks again for the thorough training.

Hi Eric,
Just wanted to tell you how much Sheffield School helped me in getting a job. It was tough and demanding, and has given me the confidence to know if I could get through that, I have the abilities to learn a new job. Without that currency, I’m not sure if I would have been hired. I know it helped when I told them how well I had done in the course, showing I could learn more new things with this job. I’ve been hired, as a contractor, for Eclipse Aviation to set up their Flight Support Department. …I fully plan on (using) the information I learned in the course and applying it to set up their department. I realize 121 is significantly different than 91 (especially on the operational control), but it gives me a great background to help develop their program. Knowing how to break down a flight plan manually is invaluable for understanding a computerized system. It really helps to know what the computer is actually calculating. Brett was also a wealth of knowledge on the weather. I definitely know more than when I came into the course.

I have begun looking at schools to provide the proper skills and training that I need and with Sheffield’s reputation I feel that it would behoove me to choose your institution.

I was hired be ASA and joined their training class that started March 13th. Five out of six people in my class are Sheffield graduates….Thanks for all your help!

Thanks for your acceptance (into your accelerated course)! I’m working on passing the ADX right now. (My goal is 95+%.) Your online info is great- I was working on the whole 1700+ (and still will), but will concentrate more heavily on the 537+ that you recommend. I am still waiting on a possible interview with a company, that will decide if I definitely go for my Dispatcher training, but as soon as I find out – you will definitely be the school I will be signing up with. Will be back to you as soon as I know a little more.

I did a lot of research looking at all different schools and Sheffield definitely seems to teach more of a ‘real world’ experience. I’m not looking for just certification, I want to take the knowledge and be able to apply it in a real environment. Looking forward to signing up with your school shortly!

It sure is difficult to believe it was a year ago I drove away from FLL with my temporary certificate neatly folded and proudly stowed in my wallet. It’s been a great ride since then, and I am really enjoying the career.

I am curious about availability for the 9 April one-day ETOPS class. This isn’t “company directed”, but for my own personal training. It also happens to fall on a day off, and I’d love to jumpseat down on JetBlue and attend.

Either way, please pass to Brett and the rest of the staff my continuing gratitude for my Sheffield experience. The school’s reputation served to get my foot in the door, and the quality of training serves me to this day.

Hi Eric,

Hope all is well there at the school. Just wanted to send you a brief email to let you know where I’m at right now. After I left Sheffield I spent 2 happy years at Eujet…. right now I’m at Antonov Airlines working in the flight planning dept and I really like it. The aircraft are amazing and the area of operation is literally global, there’s nowhere we won’t go! We have the only operational AN-225 in the world and it has the world record for largest payload ever airborne..253,000 kgs, incredible. You know there was only one position available and out of over 100 applicants I landed it. Most of the interview was spent discussing topics widely covered on the course at Sheffield and I’ve not doubt whatsoever that it was this that pulled me through. Anyway, just wanted to say hi and thanks for running such a great school. Big hello to the rest of the guys there.

When I mentioned that I was looking into dispatch, the only school that was mentioned by ALL dispatchers I work with was SHEFFIELD and ONLY Sheffield. I heard nothing but great things about this school from previous students. I can now say without a doubt, Sheffield is “topshelf.” I have already and will continue to recommend Sheffield to others!

Hello All, how is everything going? I spoke with (PJ) the other week and it sounds like most everyone has a job now. ..I came back from the course and took the test to become an Army pilot. The course helped me out a lot on passing the test, I should be a prime candidate for flight school. …Thank you for the help and tell Brett I said hello and thank you for an enjoyable time at class.

Dear Eric, Katja & Brett,

Thank you all once again, for your support and knowledge on what has to be the best aviation course I have attended to date. The materials and structure were excellent and you have a great Instructor in Brett.

I believe from speaking to my friend …, that EasyJet are now attending your course, with … due to fly out in April. Finally, on behalf of myself and MyTravel Airways, I would like to take this opportunity in wishing you great success for the future.

Best Regards
