Aircraft Dispatchers work with pilots to create flight plans that enable aircraft to arrive at their destinations on schedule carrying the maximum payload while expending the least operating cost. The dispatcher must consider weather conditions, safety, regulations, personnel, and economy while making quick decisions about flight plans. In addition, flight dispatchers monitor the progress of flights until an aircraft lands safely.
