My days are varied and dependant on a number of factors which are constantly changing.
Aircraft delays due to weather conditions, unserviceable aircraft, airport delays all impact my job.
This position enables me to learn new things about the abilities and limitations on a variety of aircraft types almost on a daily basis.
Although we work on flights individually, my department very much functions as a team when things do start to go wrong, which my management encourages.
I work shift work which is 24/7 which is difficult on occasions, especially Christmas time and the holiday season. In saying that, I have been a shift worker for 26 years so I mustn't mind it too much.
Each day I dispatch many flights, knowing that I have done my very best to ensure each flight departs safely and on time...that makes it all worth while.
Opportunity to travel, having days off through the week, no traffic
very early starts. Working on public holidays
