Aircraft Dispatch Technology Associate Degree

Did you know a commercial plane never leaves the ground without both the captain and the dispatcher agreeing on the flight? That’s because aircraft dispatchers play a crucial role in overseeing the safety of a flight from one location to another.

There are more than 2,000 U.S. dispatchers who help keep pilots from flying into turbulence, running out of fuel or safely arriving at airports where runways are icy. They are known as the eyes and ears on the ground for the pilots in the air.

The FAA notes the role of the aircraft dispatcher is a critical link in air safety – and it can make for an exciting career choice —especially in Texas, where there’s 384 public airports, four major airlines and two of the world’s busiest airports.

TSTC is one of only three such schools in Texas to offer a two-year associate degree program approved by Federal Aviation Administration. Students will receive five semesters of intensive training on a working airport campus with an operational control tower and dual runways. And TSTC offers a comprehensive simulator suite that provides students with a virtual experience simulating real-world conditions.

Students also will have access to TSTC’s Aerospace Center with new terminal facility, air traffic control tower and expanded programs (to open fall 2011). In addition, the FAA-approved curriculum will prepare students to take the agency’s Practical Test.
