NBAA has developed a Business Aircraft Scheduler Certificate program to help provide comprehensive introductory to mid-level scheduling training for flight department personnel. Announced yesterday on the eve of the 2023 Schedulers & Dispatchers Conference (SDC2023), the program was developed in collaboration with Part 91 scheduler experts and with Universal Weather and Aviation.
The assessment-based certificate program includes nine asynchronous learning modules: business aviation basics; mission control; global regulations; technology; crew scheduling; safety and security; finance, legal, and tax responsibilities; pre-trip logistics; and real-time trip support.
Participants who successfully complete the program will receive a certificate and digital badge. The certificate further is approved for NBAA Certified Aviation Manager program credit.
“NBAA strives to provide valuable learning opportunities for its members from all sectors of business aviation, and this latest credential will allow schedulers and others in the flight department to affirm they are among the best in the industry,” said NBAA director of certification Tyler Austin. “This program is ideal for flight department personnel who have been assigned aircraft scheduling responsibilities or professionals looking to work in business aviation operations.”
