Yes, Casey is the man.

RVSM,

I wouldn't really say that Vegas has a high cost of living. Maybe a high cost of moving here, but the cost of living is still very affordable compared to most other major west coast cities.

We don't have low home prices any longer, but the cost to own the home is still cheap. I'm speaking of property taxes and general day to day living expenses.

Did u leave there too?


My thoughts exactly!!!

BTW....Last year I grossed over $40,000 at a regional airline with less than 3 years at the company. This year, $50,000 is a real possibility!

Glad that you care what homer thinks about your posts. Why delete what you said? Was it inaccurate?

YOU TOO, COULD KNOCK DOWN A PILE OF CHANGE WITH THE RIGHT ATTITUDE AND DESIRE!


Why do you always edit your posts after someone disagrees with you. What was your point? Seems you were trying to say its impossible to make any money doing this job. Why do you continually try to turn people away from dispatching by posting such negative themes?

There is money to be made. You just need to apply yourself and be willing to make a few sacrifices in the beginning, like moving to a new city instead of commuting.

I'm sorry you couldn't make it in the industry, maybe you know one of my former trainees. She too couldn't cut it, so instead of admitting the job wasn't right for her, she tries to blame everyone else for her failures.


Good luck wherever the future takes you.

Homer.

what training is required for dispatch? i don't work for an airline so i dunno. do they have the same type of training as, say, ATC before getting sent out into the field, or can Joey Joe-Joe Schabadu come in off the street, get on-the-site training, and then work dispatch? also, pardon the hijack, what are the typical duties of dispatch?

513,

You might want to do some research on the subject, there is a little more to the position that what you think, of course Homerdispatch will have the full 411 for you, widely known amongst he's peers as "Gods gift to dispatch"....I would help you but his omni-presence would certainly find fault with my reply. Do your homework and learn the real world situation, not the school manufactured blue sky outlook just to get your $$$....good luck

STAY THE HELL OUT OF AVIATION!!! BE A BANKER!!!!

Seriously, this ain't the same industry it used to be, even just 5 years ago. ALWAYS have a backup plan.

In order to be a Dispatcher you first have to attain your license. There are several schools around the country you can do this. Some programs can finish you in as quick as 6 weeks. I did mine in college and it took 2 semesters. You'll also have to take your ATP written exam which is the same as the 121 ATP written, with the exception of there being questions related specifically to Dispatch.

Once you get your license you can apply for a Dispatch position with an airline. Most Regionals will hire a newly licensed dispatcher. The majors and much larger air carriers want to see dispatch experience before hiring you.

As far as the job goes you are responsible for a number of things such as flight planning, weather, alternates, fuel, monitoring the progress of flights, etc, etc, etc. Its not a bad job to have if you want to be in the aviation industry without flying. In addition its something to fall back on if you lose your medical and want to stay in the industry. I worked for a regional 6yrs ago as a dispatcher and made about $22-24k. It was a good job to have while I was in flight school and it kept me up to speed on the FARS.

I got my license through college as well. I worked as a Part 91/135 DX for a year and a half while earning my commercial SE/ME and CFI certificates...EXTREMELY valuable experience in back-of-the-house operations. Learned a ton about how the NAS/IFR system operates and tricks to manipulate it. I loved the experience, but honestly, the job is rather mundane most of the time. I don't know how some of you do that job for years and decades!

thanks azaviator. that's what i was looking for. i guess working as a dispatcher for an airline takes a bit more training than my dispatcher job at my flight school!! :D :rolleyes:
