    Dispatch License

    Pardon my boasting, but my company was nice enough to offer a scholarship contest for interested employees to obtain their Dispatch license. I had an essay and panel interview a few weeks back, and was informed today that I won the scholarship!

    I'm very excited to toss another aviation credential under my belt, and have something that will hopefully lead to my next promotion and raise from here. North American has been a caring employer to me, and I am proud to work for them and also for the people WE work for.

    I will be attending the class at Flight Safety at LGA, although I'm not yet sure when I will be starting. I have more details to learn soon.

    Congrats Phil! You're right, NA seems like a great employer. While most airlines are cutting benefits and the things they give back to employees, NA is smart enough to do something like this where it's a win-win situation.

    Re: Dispatch License

    Thanks, guys. I have a few higher ups who really go out of their way to make sure that their employees are taken care of, and afforded great opportunities. Especially with the way that the industry is these days, my company is in great shape and I'm grateful to be where I am.

    A dispatch license is like getting a pilot's license without the flying part. Being a dispatcher for an ETOPS airline that operates to very unique and exotic places make experience with NAA pure gold in the airline industry.

    Re: Dispatch License

    Phil, I am really glad you are getting this great oppurtunity. As you said getting experiance with an Internatianal carrier going to so many different and unique destinations is a great resume addition. After a few years it would be very easy for you to get dispatch employment with some of the best paying (dispatch position) carriers in the industry.

    For those who don't know the written test HPNPilot1200 mentioned is the ATP written, or anotherwords the same test a pilot must take to get his/her Air Transport Pilot rating, a requirement to become an airline pilot.

    Best of luck with school Phil, and I know I speak for many on this board when I say we are very proud of your accompolishments at North American.

    Again Congrats
