The course focuses on the day-to-day aspect of air taxi operations, covering a number of aircraft types, air charter regulatory compliance, and the charter sales process, as well as addressing how to accelerate growth in charter operations. Course tuition is $1,299.

“We are excited about the opportunity to provide this course to charter operators,” said Academy College president Nancy Grazzini-Olson. “Paired with our aircraft dispatcher experience, we are confident of the value this course will create.”

“Based on industry feedback, we see the need for quality and timely training for charter coordinators to gain an understanding of the full scope and daily demands of this crucial position,” stated National Air Transportation Association senior v-p Ryan Waguespack. “As workforce retention and recruitment are top of mind for the aviation business industry, we look forward to the advantages program like these will bring to individuals and businesses.
