Held in conjunction with the 2014 Schedulers & Dispatchers Conference.

This course is designed to improve the leadership skills and performance of both 91 and 135 flight department personnel. It is very beneficial for managers, schedulers, dispatchers and others within the business aviation industry who find themselves in leadership positions such as maintenance managers and pilots or in business units such as FBO’s and repair stations. Through the use of case studies and highly interactive team activities, emphasis is placed on the ability to exercise leadership by being a role model, empowering personnel, building effective teams, promoting the exchange of information and making sound decisions in order to achieve flight department goals and promote corporate objectives.
