When flying to a new destination there are many factors to consider when choosing an FBO. “I want to check fuel costs, make sure the FBO has the amenities the pilots need, check their hours of operation and things like that,” said NBAA Schedulers & Dispatchers Committee member Lori Montgomery. For Benjamin Fuller, with International Trip Planning Services, it all comes down to trust. “Our first thought is who can we trust on the ground in any certain location that can get everything done from A to Z,” he said.
Working as a scheduler or dispatcher is a significant time commitment. Nevertheless, it's important for those working in the field to allocate time to further their education and career potential by earning accreditations and certifications.
