FLIGHT OPERATIONS & FLIGHT DISPATCHER


FLIGHT OPERATIONS & FLIGHT DISPATCHER
  • Dispatchers usually share responsibility for the exercise of operational control, which gives them authority to divert, delay or cancel a flight.
  • Flight dispatchers are legally 50% responsible for the safety of every flight they dispatch. The pilot in command of the flight holds responsibility for the other 50%. A flight dispatcher has the legal authority to refuse to dispatch a flight if safety is in any way in question, as does the pilot in command. This is known as 'Co-Authority Dispatch'.
  • Because commercial decision making in an airline can conflict with the safety of a flight, a flight dispatcher's responsibilities are kept separate from the commercial aspects of an airline's operation, and as such the profession is primarily focused on the safety of a flight; all other duties are secondary.
