Our program is FAA approved for 200 hours. Classes are held from 8:00 am until 5:00 pm, Monday through Friday. All FAA-approved Dispatch schools must meet (follow) FAA minimum requirements; however, contrary to what many schools claim, all schools DO NOT teach the identical curriculum. Sheffield School incorporates additional reality-based material which is not typically found in common textbooks. In fact, we’ve written our own textbook because most aviation books do not directly address much of the practical material taught in the course; well, not in Sheffield’s comprehensive course. Time in class allotted to each subject varies greatly depending on the examples given, the scenarios produced, and the hands-on application.
Individuals excel in this course are students who
- are at least 21 years of age.
- can read, write, speak, and understand the English language.
- have a high school graduate or international equivalent education.
- are VERY self-disciplined, follows direction well, and studies hard.
