Hi Eric,

“I completed dispatch certification at Sheffield in March of 2015. Just a personal update that I am now a dispatcher at Alaska Airlines after working for 8 years at SkyWest. My training at Sheffield has continued to serve me well. Thanks for the great preparation for a great career.”

“After a year spent in TUI, I’m really excited that I’m going to start a new job at London Luton Airport as an Airspace Change Executive – I’m pretty sure that finishing the Aircraft Dispatcher course at Sheffield and obtaining the FAA licence has massively helped me out to get this job!”

Hi, Brett and Eric,

Just wanted to thank you both again for providing the round-the-clock guidance and support that helped ‘E’ and I succeed at Sheffield.  It really was a fun experience for both of us.  Moreover, I feel better equipped to propel my career in private air carriage thanks to you.

Hope to stay in touch with you in the future!

Dear Katja, Eric and Brett,

I trust this email finds you well. I am not sure where to begin since I have so much to thank you all for. Mr. Eric for that first email in 2021 when I inquired about the school, and you shared a lot of useful information which made me make the choice to come to Sheffield. In addition, much appreciated for the practical interview which was very professional. I really appreciate.

To Mrs. Katja I really appreciate your patient when I was trying to get the visa since 2021, your assistance and patient helped a lot. Your recommendations on accommodation were also on point and I got an exceptionally good accommodation option. I will be sending a separate email to the host with you in cc on this.

To Mr. Brett, your sharing of knowledge was excellent and went a long way in answering questions at the practical test, tests in class as well as the ADX test. When I joined the physical class is when it came to mind the sacrifice you make to teach in class as well as reply to online students in the evening (like myself). This dedication is remarkable.

To all of you kindly keep up the excellent work which makes Sheffield School of Aeronautics the best in the US and for sure I have already started passing on recommendations to my colleagues in the UN WFP Aviation Service to consider Sheffield as the first choice for the Dispatcher course.

I wish all of you the best …

J. here, the New Zealander who attended Sheffield’s Jan-Feb 2022 class. I hope you’re doing well. I’m currently in the vetting process for a new role as a flight planning officer for easyJet here in the U.K. As part of this process, they require a reference for all my recent forms of employment and education. I was wondering if it would be okay If I left your details on the submission form? It would be such a great help. 
…. I decided to head over the UK – and after a couple of interviews, I was offered a position with EasyJet – helping immensely the fact that the two gentlemen interviewing me had attended Sheffield in 2016 and 2018. 
I am forever grateful for my time at Sheffield, and I count it as one of my life’s greatest achievements so far. I cannot wait to finally start my career in the role. I hope you are (all) well and things are going great for the school – I’d love to come back and visit some day!
Kind regards,

Please accept this gift in recognition for your contributions to the professional aircraft dispatch community and to me personally when I attended Sheffield in August and September of this year. The challenge coin is given to those who contribute to our GOC mission at FedEx and by helping me to receive my dispatch certification have done just that.

“I hope this note finds you and the company well. Over the course of nearly 25 years, I have had a highly successful career as an aircraft dispatcher thanks to you and the fine people at Sheffield. A couple of years at Piedmont, a few months at Midway and 20 years at SkyWest.
I could not have asked for a better career. I was so lucky that being a dispatcher never seemed like work to me as I enjoyed it so much.
Now I find myself on Wake Island. I’m working base operations, airfield operations/management and flight planning alongside the military.
Everything I have learned has brought me here and none of that would have been possible without Sheffield.
Thank you, Eric. Thanks for helping me get my start way back when. You have no idea how grateful I am.
So many have come through the Sheffield doors and came out with the tools for a great career! You all have made such a difference for so many.
Take care of yourself,

“Both Brett and Eric have been amazing instructors. I have never in my life seen instructors so consistently maintain the same energy and positive attitude day in and day out…Every detail, even the most obscure question, they had an answer for. They consistently set us up for success through teaching, comprehensive handouts, and detailed explanations on missed test questions. Without a doubt the most difficult course I have attended with some of the most competent and outstanding instructors I’ve had the pleasure of learning from.”

Dear Eric,
Hello! I just wanted to check in and see how you were doing. I hope you are doing well. I just started at Southwest Airlines this month as a dispatcher! There are a few fellow Sheffield graduates in my training class! Thank you again for having such a great program and for setting me up to really be able to have the career in aviation that I wanted. The new classes coming through look great. Thank you again.

I just wanted to thank you for all that have you have done for our class and for me personally over the last 5 weeks. You both are truly wonderful instructors and beacons of aeronautical information.

This has been the most challenging yet rewarding 5 weeks of my 26 years of life but I’m truly amazed at how much I’ve grown. I have no one to thank besides the both of you and your wonderful curriculum.

Your efforts are beyond appreciated and thank you for pushing me out of my comfort zone and into the fire that is Aircraft Dispatching.

“Great job! I like the use of the B-727-200 with manual flight planning as it requires focus on the principles and regulations.”

[Sheffield note: we’ve added the B737-800 and retained the B-727 for operational comparison instruction, which has never been done before in the FAR Part 65 environment!!]

“Course had a ton of great information to not only know the dispatch rules, but the role the dispatcher plays in the airline industry.”

May 5, 2022

Brett and Eric,

I hope you are both well.

I wanted to share with you that I have accepted an offer with …. International to join their AeroData team as a flight path support specialist. In this role I will help support the computation of runway performance specs for domestic and international carriers in addition to one engine inoperative flight path procedures.

Although this isn’t strictly speaking a dispatch position, the knowledge I acquired from being your student/examinee no doubt played a major role in bringing forth this opportunity. I will always be grateful to you both for that in helping fulfill a life long dream of working in aviation, …

I look forward to remaining in touch.

Best regards,

“Very challenging class especially for a foreign student! And it makes it even greater when you are able to pass it! I just loved the way you taught us things and especially the extra handouts after each section. We can tell that you want us to succeed, our part of the deal is then to reach it.”

Subject: I Have Been Hired

I was offered and have accepted a position as a flight dispatcher with CommutAir. My training begins on November 1st so things have been moving pretty quickly. I was contacted that same day I applied and was pretty quickly set up with a second interview and both interviewers seemed impressed with my knowledge. I am grateful for the incredible quality of the education that you have provided to me and others which has clearly cultivated a well respected identity within the industry.

Thank you all so much for preparing people to become quality dispatchers.



November 12, 2021

“Very great course!! I really appreciate all of your work.”

November 12, 2021

“This course was one of the hardest things I have done. However, it has been one of the most eye opening things. It helped me realize that I really do want to be in this industry and has reaffirmed my choice to attend Sheffield.”

November 12, 2021

“Hands down the best course I’ve ever taken. The use of multiple presentations of info, the willingness to explain and answer questions, and thought-provoking lectures has led me to a wealth of knowledge over the last 5 weeks. Thank you!”

Incredibly excited to share the news that I have been selected for dispatch with American Airlines. I begin my course room training Feb 7th for 6 weeks then will transfer to on job training thereafter.
I just wanted to thank you and all you guys there for what you do and how well you do it. I had a great time in your guys’ course and felt like you all did a great job in ensuring your students really learn, understand and are competent in dispatch material. Huge thanks to you all at Sheffiled. 
Super excited to take this next step, which very well may be my last step, in my career. It’s been my dream since discovering the position to get hired on with my company in dispatch. You guys are a big part of why I was prepared for my interview. I owe you guys a big thanks.

Just wanted to let you all know that I’ve accepted an offer for Flight Superintendent with Delta Air Lines and I’m very thankful for the thorough training you all provided! You definitely run a top notch course there and it certainly helped me get the position with them.

I’ve given many recommendations to attend Sheffield and will continue to recommend you all moving forward. Keep up the great work and thanks for everything! Hope all is well with the staff there!

Hi Eric and Brett,

I wanted to reply with a quick note to let you know how much I appreciate the time and effort put into the refresher course! My Sheffield experience has been superb from the start, and I’m grateful to be a part of such an excellent group. 
I’m excited to share that I’ve accepted an Aircraft Dispatcher position at xxx Airways and will begin training tomorrow. It’s been a longtime goal of mine to find my spot in the airline industry, and it’s surreal to be at this point, finally. Thanks for playing a significant role in making it all possible!
I wish you both all the best and look forward to keeping in touch!

Mr. Eric Morris

I can’t thank you enough for the amount of knowledge you gave in that short week of us being with you…
Thank you for allowing us to stay in your home and accommodating us with any needs we ran across…
..I really appreciate the opportunities that you guys helped me open up. This is just step one of my mission and I’m looking forward to being a part of and representing Sheffield!

April 12, 2021

Good Afternoon Eric,

After applying several places these last few weeks, I’m very pleased to announce that I have accepted an offer at Commutair! who charters flights for United out of North Olmsted, Ohio. I completed a technical interview with them yesterday. 
I feel very proud with my choice of Sheffield with the wealth of material I have in my possession and the experience I had. I’ve had almost every airline I’ve applied reach out to me for a quick conversation and I believe part of that has to do with the Sheffield name. Also I gotta thank you for the accommodations, they were very cozy, roomy, and really helped me stay focused. They were above my expectations. I have been working hard on reviewing the material and sounding very CLEAR and solid with my answers … 
Kind regards

Hi Eric,

..I just wanted to let you (& Brett) know that I was hired at Mesa Airlines out here in Phoenix, AZ!

I have “officially” been on the desk for about 3 weeks and I feel fully prepared. I still utilize the Sheffield binder that we received! Also, many of my managers are familiar with Sheffield and view your school in an extremely positive light…

I wanted to say thank you for preparing me for this career that I already love. And to Brett for teaching me all the things that will prepare me for future success in the aviation industry!

I also wanted to point out that I love that Sheffield is starting a recurrent course! I will definitely be utilizing this in the future if I ever feel a little rusty, or maybe just to come visit and say hi!..

5 Star Review to Google Business & Facebook

April 4, 2021

Sheffield offer an insightful, challenging, and rewarding course to obtain your FAA Aircraft Dispatcher License. Eric and Brett are industry veterans who are terrific role models and incorporate a great sense of humor and insight into the curriculum. I completed the course via a combination of online training and two weeks in class.

As a commercial pilot and flight instructor, I found the course informative and accretive in terms of widening my knowledge of the aviation industry and particularly operational requirements on the airline side of the spectrum. If you work hard, complete the required assignments and homework, and are prepared to dedicate a few weeks/months of you life to rigorous study than you will pass and succeed (regardless of whether you come from an aviation background or not). Eric and Brett provide all the tools and resources you need to do well, and I can’t complement them enough for putting together a terrific program.

There is nothing antiquated about the program (to the individual who mentions working with 727 systems). We utilized industry-based materials in class, discuss modern aircraft communications, and use the 727 as a template to model flight plans and performance metrics in large part due to some of the quirks of the aircraft to show one how to manage dispatch planning in the event they do find themselves planning a flight for a plane with inop equipment or with a quirky aircraft.

This course is designed to be challenging so that when it comes to real world dispatching and not to mention the FAA practical you are more than well prepared. Thank you for having me as a student!

After graduating in September, I was immediately offered a job with SkyWest Airlines and have been working as a Dispatcher for the last six months in St George, UT at the SkyWest OCC. Being that half my new hire class dropped out over the course of training, I can confidently say that Sheffield helped to prepare me for the real world. I also want to personally thank you for the time you took to explain to me performance limitations when I was struggling with this subject. I’m probably one of the few ..who can confidently understand why we are weight restricted in a given scenario, and actively take steps to mitigate restrictions and ultimately make the pilots (and pax) very happy. It’s a direct result of what I learned at Sheffield, and  it shows that others were not thought this. I’m excelling, and it’s exciting.

Many thanks, 

March 6, 2021

“I went to Sheffield back in 2012. I’ve been with Southwest now for 7 years and dispatched for about 3.5 of those years. Very blessed to be with this company!”


February 11, 2021

I did not get a chance to see you after my practical today but I just wanted to thank you again for all of your help these last few months. This was a course that was certainly challenging but you made it more enjoyable each day. You did an exceptional job explaining all of the information and answered every question I had thoroughly and made sure everything was cleared up. 
After working with you in person for the last seven days, it is clear to me why everyone leaves Sheffield speaking very highly of you and Eric. I certainly will be doing the same.
Thank you for kicking my butt the last few months and I am excited for the new opportunities ahead that you will have helped me achieve…
Again, thank you so incredibly much for being a great instructor.
Best Regards,

Challenging,  but well worth all of the long hours and sleepless nights. I feel confident that all of my weak areas were aided by tremendously by the guidance and instruction I received throughout the class.


February 5, 2021

Overall very satisfied with this class and Sheffield. The instruction knowledge went above just reading the regulations and weather and helped with applying the course content to real-life scenarios.


February 5, 2021

Eric and Brett are the best teachers I have met so far; very professional and entertaining in class. I enjoyed the experience and as I said earlier, I will absolutely highly recommend Sheffield. Thank you!


November 1, 2020

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.

Hey Brett,
I’m sure you know by now, but I passed! It’s such an awesome feeling to finally have my dispatch license! I wanted to thank you again, so much, for being my instructor. You were seriously the best instructor I’ve probably ever had anywhere, and I’m not kidding! You know this stuff inside and out, and you make it fun with all of the jokes and stories. It was a very enjoyable experience. You were simply an amazing instructor and it’s definitely because of you that I was able to grasp everything that I needed to. Sheffield is by far the best aircraft dispatcher school in the world, no questions! Once again, THANK YOU!!

Thank you again so much for all your help and instruction over the last several weeks and months. May God continue to bless you!

June 5, 2020

[Sheffield note – just another example that it DOES matter where you attend school.]
Hope you are all doing well.
I just wanted to let you that I received my promotion letter a few days back and I will be now working in the capacity of an Assistant Director SOC for National Airlines. 
You have been an integral part of my journey and I wanted to share this good news with you. If there are openings at NAL, Sheffield will remain my first choice given the high standards that Sheffield maintains.

Good Afternoon,

..I wanted to say thank you for all the instruction during the class. All your knowledge has truly prepared me for a job. I am happy to say that I accepted a position with a Part 135 company …. During my interview with the Director of Flight Control and the two Dispatch Managers, I learned that the Dispatch Managers attended the three-week course… They required that the individual had their (FAA Aircraft Dispatcher Certificate.)

Good afternoon Eric,

I wanted to reach out to let you know that training at (airline) is in full swing and I couldn’t be happier that I chose Sheffield. My classmates, while very smart, definitely had subpar training and that has been very evident. I have waited to write a full scale review of the school until I was able to get my hands dirty at (airline) to see what the working world was really like. I can safely say I will be writing a wonderful review of the school and am encouraging others to attend. Big thanks to (Sheffield) for the top notch instruction.
All the best,

February 7, 2020

Hello Brett,

I just wanted to say thank you so much for your dedication to your job. I highly respect you and regard you as one of the best instructor/teachers I’ve ever known. You uphold the standard of excellence in such a way that it compels your students to get better every day. I want you to know that every error in my work and studies has driven me to learn from it. Each failure is an opportunity to learn from it and to get better. I must commend you that you are a gifted communicator. You can take very complex ideas and explain them in ways that make the material accessible and memorable. Thank you for doing what you do day in and day out to help mold students into what they need to be. I look forward to initial training with an airline to continue to learn more each day. Continuous learning is the minimum requirement for success in any field.

I am so grateful for this educational experience and I wanted to make sure that I properly expressed gratitude to you. Keep up the very important work that you do!

“I honestly think the course lived up to its reputation. Yes, it was difficult! But I do feel prepared to walk into any interview and walk out with a job offer. I was contacted by Endeavor for an interview before I had even finished my final exam. Brett was a fantastic instructor and you can tell he has a natural ability to teach. Overall, I was very happy that I chose Sheffield and have enjoyed my time here. Thank you!”

Hi Eric.

Finally scored my dream job of dispatch at Southwest Airlines. Thanks for everything you all prepared me for and know that, a couple years after graduation, my interview panel still pointed out ”Sheffield grad eh”. Some say it doesn’t matter where you get your certificate. Anyone having been in my seat a few weeks ago knows  differently. Thanks again!

Hi Eric,

I’m going to be hiring a class of up to 12 dispatchers in February of this year. If you’d like, I would be happy to come in and talk to your classes…I’d be much more comfortable taking a Sheffield grad than someone from someplace else.

Also, if you have any (excellent students) in class please let me know. (xxxx xxxx) has been an awesome addition to the team here and I certainly appreciate you recommending him.

Have a great holiday,

For all future students:

This school has a very high standards, it is intensive and they are giving you a huge amount of information. Just be ready to learn, if you are willing to learn and understand you will have a full support from instructors…They will give you all what you need to pass the course, yours in only to know. After every day you will feel exhausted but valuable. And once you finish and graduate you will feel like the (whole) world is yours, and it is.

I highly recommend your school to anyone who would like to work the aviation.

Hi Eric,

No, not at all. I want to actually attend your school. I had already passed the ADX but you said I’d need to retake it (since it expired). I’ve been doing thinking, and no I don’t want to reattend xxxx (in Texas). They were not helpful and I didn’t enjoy it.

I came in as a complete newbie. No prior aviation experience. I went to Sheffield 10 years ago. I was in a class with many students who had dispatch experience. It was five weeks of very intense classroom, and I spent every day and night after class studying. I thought at times I was not going to make it, but somehow, I passed everything. I worked for 3 years at a regional airline in Arizona, before going back to the DFW area to do dispatch for a corporate aviation airline for 6 years. I have since moved on from aviation, but it was a great experience for me. … I appreciate the intensity of the school. Thank you again, Eric.

September 7, 2019

I believe that Sheffield was a smart choice for myself and helped me have a strong command of the dispatch function and was more than adequate in preparing me for my Flight Dispatch career. Having worked with, trained, and hired dispatchers, Sheffield graduates consistently prove to have a better grasp on the regulatory and flight planning aspects of the job. That doesn’t mean that other schools didn’t do an adequate job but there was always, IMO, a clear distinction. Of those that did well coming from other schools, it usually could be attributed to personal work ethic and extra work on their part. One thing guaranteed of a Sheffield graduate is that they can read a METAR or TAF (weather reports/forecasts) with fluency and know what they just read (including remarks).

…I just wanted to say thank you for the education that I received at Sheffield.  I have also recently accepted a position as Aircraft dispatcher with Republic Airways in Indianapolis.
Ruben is an amazing instructor, one can tell that he really loves his job.  He takes the time to make sure that everyone understands the material and answers all questions that students have while keeping the class on schedule.  If a student has questions Ruben offers one on one time at the end of class everyday.  Ruben and Brett both have a way of making the complex wording of the regulations into a context that is far less daunting and easier to comprehend (No alternate required for a flag flight). 
Eric is a person that has amazing stories and is also a great examiner.  He made my practical much more relaxed and helped calm my nerves.  He uses the stories he tells you as situational questions, during the story he asked questions about what I would do if I was in the same situation.  
Lizett is a great help when it comes to the office related issues and paperwork.  She had the answer to all my questions from the first phone call in December 2017 to the last day that I was there.  She always has a smile on her face and as the first person you meet from Sheffield she makes it feel warm and inviting. 
The Five week course was challenging and took a lot of hard work, It is a course that what you put in is what you get out of it.  The entire staff is there to help you along the way, if you need help its only a short question or email away. I can say first hand that Sheffield had made me prepared for the airline interview process. 

March 27, 2019

Brett (online course instructor),
I wanted to thank you again for the time spent working with me during the past few months and the two weeks I was here in FLL (Plantation, FL – Sheffield School). The amount of information I learned in this class was more than I learned in my four years of college and the 5+ years in the airlines. I thank you for being tough and thorough even if it was for something simple as putting a ‘ at the end of a ceiling or RVR. 
This course was designed perfectly for someone who wants to succeed and absorb not only the basic information, but even more to further their career in the airlines and put themselves ahead of the potential hiring candidates.
Again, thank you very much! …

I hope things are going well down in FLL at Sheffield. ..Desk training has been going really well, had my first diversion a few weeks ago. We are slated to finish our competency checks and be signed off near the end of March. I feel ready, my training at Sheffield has certainly set me apart. Thankful to have been hired so soon after finishing my certificate, that certainly helped.

To all the Sheffield Instructors,

…I wanted to again thank you for the course, your professionalism throughout, the standards you set, and for your continued support in helping me achieve my goal. I sincerely appreciate your responsiveness to my questions, helping with in areas where I lacked understanding (which was plenty), and for your clear and thorough explanations.
It was a pleasure meeting and working with you both, online and in person. I have learned a lot of content but also tried to learn from your teaching techniques. One of the things I expressed to my boss when I returned was how impressed I was with your questions for exams (online, written, and in person). The mastery in the crafting of your questions required not just “rote or understanding” level of memory, but a “correlation” level of material from all lessons.
Often online and in class, I would simply reflect on the question and be impressed at how the answer required “correlation” of a lot of material to arrive at the correct response. In my studies as a flight instructor, I know that the level expected is the “correlation” level and I appreciate the work you have undoubtedly put into the questions to arrive at that level. Even though I sometimes had trouble in getting the correct answers, I was often impressed by the way the question required an assimilation of the material. That’s the real world where it’s the situation that requires answers and not simply a choice of either A, B, C, or D… . That sets us up for success and that level of questioning requires a lot of work to achieve.
Additionally, it was impressive the attentiveness shown to each classmate in helping us all move through the process (whether flight planning or knowledge areas) together. Taking time to ensure we were all moving forward together is no easy task.
Simply put, Thank you for a very impressive experience.
I have learned a lot in terms of material content and in teaching techniques.
It was definitely worthwhile…
Again, thank you both very much.
Have a good day.
Very sincerely,
G. Carter

I was very pleased with my experience and was impressed with their over all ability to convey the material required.  I quickly landed a job dispatching after my course and couldn’t be happier.  

I recommend Sheffield to all prospective dispatchers.

Excellent school. Excellent program. Very good instructors with easy to understand graphs and examples of dispatching. I was in the 1-week course and the online modules were very informative. The instructors really took the time to explain literally everything online. I was very impressed with the online portion of the school as well as the 1-week class. Also understanding how to do the flight plans, the instructor goes over everything. Even all the little “gotchas” that can make your flight plan invalid (examples, contaminated runways, icing, headwinds vs tailwinds) the instructor explains everything. I recommend Sheffield to anyone interested in becoming an Aircraft Dispatcher. Excellent school with top notch instructors and material.

Hey Eric and Brett,

Thanks again for everything you, the school, and it’s staff have done for me. Really top notch, and I’m proud to say I have graduated from your school.. If there’s anything I can do for you or the school let me know.


July 27, 2018

By the time I landed at LAX Tuesday night (the day of my rescheduled interview), I had an e-mail offering me the job. I start at Piedmont on August 13, and Edgar from my class will be working there, too!
Thanks for everything,

May 22, 2018

To Brett – online training
I just wanted to write to you and give you my thanks for all the help you provided me along my journey to earn a dispatcher license. It all started on February 13th, … It was certainly an intense 3 months but you were always available and so responsive to emails which was a great help. I learned a lot from the email correspondence we had over the past 3 months. I remember struggling through certain areas, one in particular on a weekend and you came back with a reference on where to find the information so quickly. That meant a lot to me among other things and I am so glad I was successful in the course.

Finally getting the chance to meet you at the school was a pleasure and you were very helpful along the way. The Sheffield team works long and dedicated hours to ensure the students are successful and that certainly meant a lot to me as well. ..I know the education I earned from your instruction at Sheffield will serve me well. I will be sure to stay in touch and wish you well in your future endeavors. Sheffield will be well recommended for those who ask for my feedback on the experience.

Best regards,

Sean C.

Dear Eric and Brett,
It gives me a great pleasure to share my good news with you. I passed written test part as well and (was) offered a job as a flight dispatcher for one of the biggest Middle East carrier Etihad Airways 🙂
I would like to thank you so much for your continuous support and assistance. Without You, without Sheffield School of Aeronautics this would have been so hard to achieve. I am not only proud of my efforts that I put to success, but I am also and always been proud of being your graduate and student.
Thanks for making my life beautiful!
P.S. I would love to have my story shared on your website as motivation for others.
Always love,

Hey Eric,

..I was a graduate of Sheffield in September of 2014. Y’all’s training has helped launch a wonderful career in aviation for me. I have two years of 121 dispatching experience under my belt and am currently working at the IOC for American Airlines in a non-dispatching role… (for now).

Dear Eric,

I just want to thank your school, the whole faculty and Lizett from admin.

Let me share my experience in your school..
First of all, Lizett was such a great help for me in the whole enrolment process.
Second, Ruben was indeed a great instructor.
Many times, I felt like giving up as the course was like a shock to me. I failed in two of my exams but Ruben never failed to help me and explain sections which I don’t fully understand. He may not know this but I got encouraged with the career experiences he shared with us in class.
Third, my oral exam was like a roller coaster ride.
But gladly, you were very patient to me. Kept on digging what knowledge I have earned while studying in your school.
And lastly, your school prepares students for what waits ahead of us.

Overall, it was an awesome experience. I’ll keep studying and make sure my future boss see how great Sheffield trains there students for their future endeavours.

I highly recommend your school to anyone who would like to upgrade their career in the aviation industry.

Hello Mr. Morris,

My name is xxxxxx xxxxxx. I am a current employee of American Airlines.  I got my dispatch certification from a dispatch school in Dallas (xxxx). Upon completing this course I feel that they have left me ill-prepared to do the job effectively, they lacked real world training and they taught flight planning on icao charts and not xxxxxxxxx charts. I am coming to you for guidance and direction I spoke with a graduate of Sheffield and they spoke highly of the program that your school runs, and I wanted to know what you thought and what would be the best course of action, I know that because I didn’t attend Sheffield that u don’t offer recurrent training for me but I am willing to take your recommendation going forward to help further my career.
Thank you for your time!

Sincerely xxxxxx xxxxxx

Good Evening Mr. Morris,


My name is (name) and I work at Southwest Airlines (SWA). I had enrolled at Sheffield a year ago to do my dispatch course….but, (over time) I had moved to Denver and I ended up doing my dispatcher course at (school in Denver). BIG MISTAKE. A costly mistake I feel. I did not feel confident enough to go take a test at SWA or for that matter any other airline. When I speak with fellow dispatchers, there is no doubt that Sheffield graduates are the best in every way.


Sheffield really has a great value and input and your students fare extremely well at the tests given anywhere in the world. Your school provides no doubt – it’s like going to MIT or Harvard.


I want your help and guidance to prepare me to be confident and take up an exam with any airline. I just don’t feel I learnt much at my earlier school. Somehow your graduates that I have encountered have vast knowledge I feel. So now that I have a namesake license “that’s what I call it” I want to do it all over again at your prestigious school so I can be well prepared. Please guide me. 


Please guide me and help me achieve my dream career. I humbly agree I made a huge mistake of my choices and kindly request you and your team to help me achieve this goal.


Warm Regards

[Sheffield note: This student was reportedly ranked #1 in the class, which speaks volumes! And yes…we will help this future student!]

Subject: Dispatcher Position/Thanks
Good afternoon,

I have just accepted a Flight Superintendent (Dispatcher) position with Delta Air Lines. Today is 12/15; I graduated from Sheffield with my Dispatcher License on 11/8 (just over a month!). I want to share my sincere thanks to Sheffield; the school that made this all possible. From your very knowledgeable and diligent instructors (Personally, (the instruction) for my two week course, and Brett for my online course) to the well-organized administration and Eric, it was an excellent experience.

If I could, I would do it all over again.
Thank you Sheffield School of Aeronautics

Thank you for your email – I am really looking forward to studying with you in January.
This represents a career change for me …!  As I have researched making this move, I have been astounded at the reputation Sheffield enjoys.  One of the questions I asked several folks that recruit dispatchers for the airlines was:  What dispatcher school would impress you if it appeared on my resume?”  The only response I got was “Sheffield.  In fact, I already have a job offer from one of the “regionals” – and I haven’t even been to school yet!  I only hope that I can live up to your reputation!
..I am really looking forward to meeting everyone!

A few months ago I contacted you about an interview I took with GoJet Airlines for a Dispatching position.
I wanted to follow up and let you know I was offered the position and gladly accepted. Since then, a few months have gone by and I’ve successfully completed ground school and OJT. Two days ago I completed my comp check and am officially a dispatcher working on my own desk!! Wanted to extend the many thanks to those at Sheffield who have helped and pushed me to reach my goal!
Many Thanks,

June 28, 2017

What convinced me to come to Sheffield was the availability of the Distance +5. When I started searching for schools and online courses, Sheffield’s was the first one to pop-up. I looked at other schools as well. But, once I was on the Sheffield website and read everything about the school, it was my first choice. I also looked at critiques and there were nothing but positive. I’ve been very impressed with (the online) instruction and timely responses to my questions. And just after one day of residency. I thought (the classroom instructor) did an excellent job as well…

So, Thank you!


June 27, 2017


I found out tonight that (I got hired)!  It’s the job I wanted in the city I wanted… I can’t believe this has happened to me.  Thanks for your help, and thanks for preparing me well; after (your) class, the interview seemed easy.  



June 26, 2017

Sheffield is one of the greatest decisions I have ever made. The school is such an incredible quality, and the staff are amazing. The classroom instruction is top notch, and the staff all know dispatching inside and out. What I didn’t expect was how great Sheffield was for not only learning, but also for the connections you can make and the help Sheffield offers you after graduation. I look back and have not a doubt in my bones that Sheffield was the absolute best choice I made on my path to acquire my dispatch certificate.

Dear Sir,

Hope you are doing well. 
I wanted to write a few words to express my gratitude towards one of the most humble and knowledgeable human – you, my super instructors Rueben and Michael, ever so kind and helpful Brett, and last but not the least the lady who answered numerous questions throughout the process with a smile Ms. Lizett. 
I was excited to choose Sheffield because of what people around me in aviation told me. I am glad to say I have become one of those today encouraging others to join Sheffield. There were many amazing things about the course but for me the exams were the best. They had me thinking every single time, and now that I am working in the dispatch environment it makes complete sense. Everything I learned in Sheffield was practical and I can apply it in my daily work. For the future students “EWINS was my favourite workshop and I highly recommend everyone doing the course to definitely experience it. Please download the ADX app, trust me you won’t regret it. I had my classmates download it few days before the test because they could see how helpful it was.”
More power to the real Heroes “The Dispatchers.” If there is anything I could ever contribute towards Sheffield, I am just a call away. Please convey my regards to all. Thank you Sir.

Thanks again for everything.

March 9, 2017

One thing I kept in mind the whole time I was at Sheffield, is the reason I chose the school over others. It will be tough, busy and overall enjoyable. I haven’t had a single day I would say I could have missed. Look out for those tests, not only do they test your knowledge but they really make you think (you would know after the first one). Please do the workshops, they are really helpful, especially EWINS. Best of luck and see you on the other side!

I just want to thank you again for everything you have done for us! I’m very happy I chose Sheffield for my dispatch certification course! I have been recommending Sheffield to everyone who asked me about dispatching, before I actually attended the course (going off of my research on the field), and even more so now that I’ve been through it personally. It was truly a wonderful experience, and please pass this on to Mike, he is a great instructor. His professionalism and the amount of patience he has is amazing.

Thank you, all is very much appreciated!


January 24, 2017

Dear Brett,

I hope this email finds you well.

Last weekend I’ve finally received my Dispatcher License!

I would like to take the opportunity to say thank you, especially to you, for being patient with me during online phase and also to Mike, he is doing a great job.

Please pass my regards to the whole Sheffield Team, everybody there made this stay a enjoyable time away from home.

If you guys need anything from overseas please let me know, I’m glad to assist you.

Just wanted to touch base – feel free to share the message below. I was in the 5 week course that started February 29th earlier this year and subsequently received my cert. in the beginning of April. I’d like to thank you and the entire staff again for such a great experience. I recall being in the course and reading the promising emails from previous students in the lobby; this is a similar token of appreciation. As you can see below I accepted a position with Silver in town a few months ago and really couldn’t be happier. 

To sum my experience up for anyone remotely thinking about joining a course to receive your dispatch license, I say this: what are you waiting for?? For the money spent, I have found Sheffield to be an INVALUABLE investment in my career and future. It is really enjoyable to come in to a job in which one has passion for on a daily basis – kudos.

To any prospective dispatchers, please contact me with any interest in touring our OCC.

Although I am nervous and excited at same time to start this new journey I cannot thank enough for all you guys do…as I go back to my notes and Sheffield powerpoints, all I can say is Eric does great job putting together his notes and getting students ready in this exciting field.

After a brief waiting period, I found my first dispatch job. I joined Falcon Aviation Services based out of Abhudhabi, UAE. It’s a VIP charter service with a nice fleet.

I do not have words to express my gratitude to the team. I feel real proud to be a graduate of Sheffield. It is needless to say that it is your training that has landed me this job. Thank you for being what you are. I have always been a fan of your methods of teaching. My tenure there has helped me push myself to limits.  In addition to that it gave me a few friends from across the globe in dispatch field , who are still In touch. I would definitely do a refresher some day…

Thank you for all your patience, especially through the online portion of my class!

Thanks a lot for your email. The interview went extremely well and now I have a job. I can’t thank you enough for everything the course did for me. The interviewer was a Sheffield graduate and he said he only hires Sheffield people. I still can’t believe how my life changed in just 5 weeks. Now I see why people from all over the world come to Sheffield. Also please tell Rouben and Brett that I’m very grateful for all their teachings. 
My first day is the 29th and the company is called xxxxxxx Airlines and it is located …. 
All the best to all of you.

Amazing school! Eric and Brett are a hell of a team. I’m a high school drop out who knew nothing about aviation. I’ve been crew scheduling for three months now, just got promoted to planning and now I’m about to transfer to dispatch. If you’re going to dispatch, choose the school that does it the best. Choose Sheffield! You will not be disappointed.

Hey Eric,

Just wanted to let you know that everything was true that I read before attending Sheffield.  Applied for a couple dispatcher positions and got calls back right away from two companies (one was within an hour).  XxXxx called me within a day and offered to fly me up to St. Louis for an interview.  Both representatives told me how much they prefer Sheffield grads.  Well I just left the interveiw (3 weeks after graduation) and was offered a job as a dispatcher here.  I start training in 2 weeks! Thanks for everything.  Will keep you updated!

First I would like to thank you for the great education I received at Sheffield. It has really helped out tremendously. Less than two weeks after getting home from Sheffield I got a job offer from Gojet Airlines for a dispatcher position and accepted it! I have finished the class room portion of training (Sheffield prepared me really well for it) and am currently doing the on the job training and scheduled to do my comp check at the end of April. Thanks to Sheffield I feel really prepared for my job ahead. Hope all is well in Florida.

Good Morning Mr. Morris!

I hope that this finds you nice and warm down in sunny Ft. Lauderdale! Hard to believe it has been just a little over a year from graduation there! …I was a graduate of your January/February class of 2014. I was one of the recipients of a scholarship with xxxxxxx Airlines to attend your fabulous course down there.

First off, let me thank you for the wonderful course content. I have noticed tremendous differences in the quality of the fellow Sheffield graduates that I work with versus the typical “diploma mill” type institutions. At Sheffield we were taught critical thinking skills and how to effectively read the regulations and interpret them correctly…

Thank you for your time sir, and I look forward reading your updates on the grad page!

First of all a big thank you again to you and all Sheffield staff for the excellent job you did. 
Already after my first interview I was offered a job at Air Cargo Global in Frankfurt and start working there shortly in my new role as a Flight Operations Assistant.
Now I see, what it means being a graduate of Sheffield’s! It definitely makes a difference! I wish you folks all the best for the future, it has been a pleasure working with you.

Best regards
Orsolya U.

Hope you and all the Sheffield staff are doing well and just wanted to say I am so glad I chose Sheffield for my Dispatch training.  You all run a very professional, personable and classy organization.  Let me know if I can provide anything as far as references or anything else.  Thanks again!  Auf Wiedersehen.

I’m elated today at the news that I’ve been granted the opportunity to join Dispatch here at Southwest Airlines. I start class in mid-February. I attribute a large part of this major career step in my life to the care and quality given to my initial certificate training. I will not let you down! OK, I know y’all are busy so I’ll stop getting sentimental, but please do know that y’all are appreciated! Thanks again and we’ll talk at you soon!

Take Care,
