Bookmark and Share

Presented by: Universal Weather and Aviation, Inc.

Held in conjunction with 2009 Schedulers and Dispatchers Conference.

This course identifies and explains issues to be considered when scheduling international flights. It will introduce and familiarize the attendees with the tools, resources, and techniques necessary to accurately plan an itinerary and arrange logistical support for an international trip. Course participants will work a trip from the initial request phase through the planning, operational and post flight phases of that trip. The example trip will be designed designed to illustrate and contextualize all the issues that must be considered for the successful completion of any international trip. The importance of communicating trip requirements to the crew and passengers along with the use of checklists will be stressed. Topics to be discussed are: regulatory and procedural differences, personal requirements (e.g. visas), diplomatic permits, health requirements, over-water operations, country requirements, crew flight, duty and rest requirements, aircraft and crew security, aircraft documentation and customs and immigration requirements.

This course fullfills NBAA SPDP Flight Operations Module Objective 2.
