The National Air Transportation Association (NATA) has added to its extensive line up of online training programs with the launch of its new aircraft flight coordinator training (AFCT). Unveiled at the NBAA Schedulers & Dispatchers Conference this week in San Antonio, Texas, AFCT is a certificate program that provides core flight coordinator knowledge with an emphasis on safety and technical expertise.
The online course, which can be completed at a user-defined pace, consists of six detailed modules, including operating in the national airspace; regulations and requirements (including Ops Specs and Parts 91, 91K and 135); weather report and charts; and airports runways and performance.
“As with all NATA training programs, the association subjects each module to a rigorous review by panels of industry leaders and experts in the field,” said association vice president of operations Amy Koranda. “NATA is confident that the AFCT will make new and seasoned flight coordinators alike proficient in the latest information and procedures.”
