Flight Operations Academy
WE PROVIDE PRACTICAL BASIC AND ADVANCED TRAINING FOR NEW AND EXPERIENCED FLIGHT OPERATIONS OFFICERS
SPECIALIZED BASIC AND ADVANCED TRAINING FOR FLIGHT DISPATCHERS
Solving problems, quickly making the right decision, assessing risks, precise communication, and good teamwork – a good flight operations officer (FOO) demonstrates these and many other skills. From the operations control center (OCC), an FOO serves as a flight dispatcher or air traffic controller, taking over flight planning, coordination, and support during flight operations. In this crucial role, they act as a direct interface between the aircraft in the air and the ground handling services and air traffic control, as well as between the flight crew and ground crew. Their focus is always on ensuring that flights are carried out safely, efficiently, and in a manner that is not only timely, but also conscious of costs and impact on the environment.
Our Flight Operations Academy was established especially to train and develop flight operations officers and is an approved national organization of the German Federal Aviation Office for training flight dispatchers. Experienced FOO and trainers carry out both the legally required basic training and recurrent and refresher training courses at your location or at one of our training centers. Upon request, a training course can also be tailored to your individual requirements
