Reviews & Testimonials Aircraft Dispatcher Training Program
Hear what others have to say about training at ATP and the Aircraft Dispatcher Training Program.
…ATP is the best school… My classmates, Joshua and Sydney, are already working at Endeavor Air in Minnesota. I am sure they will do well since they have learned with Lou [Lou Dimaggio, ATP Flight Instructor].
Let me start by saying our instructor Lou DiMaggio [ATP Instructor] was amazing!! Lou’s first hand experience as a pilot and his ability to relate those experiences and scenarios to his students helped immensely in the learning process. An experienced instructor and pilot like Lou is a tremendous strength.
The entire experience at ATP is welcoming and a relaxed environment to learn a lot of material in a short amount of time. As you know, the class can be overwhelming at times, but is manageable because of the instructors and teaching style at ATP. This is a strength.
The ATP Training Center being available to students after class and on weekends is an invaluable resource for studying. This can't be understated, because studying in a hotel room can be difficult at times. This is another strength.
My classmates who were all helpful, positive, and supportive during the class are now lifelong friends having shared this venture together.
I’m sorry but I can’t really point out any weakness at this time. My reason being, the strengths I have listed are things that were not available to me from a similar course I had taken in the past.
An amazing and educational experience at a first rate facility. I would highly recommend ATP’s Aircraft Dispatcher Academy.
Initially, I felt greatly overwhelmed by the amount of required coursework that we would be covering over our 5-week course. However, I soon learned and was greatly relieved that we had such a knowledgeable instructor, Lou [Lou Dimaggio, ATP Instructor], that shared so much relevant and practical information with us on a daily basis. If any of us weren't understanding a concept, Lou instantly knew how to re-approach the subject from a completely different angle to ensure that we had a good grasp of the materials before moving on. The coursework was very challenging, but thanks to Lou's instruction, I actually looked forward to every day in class and the coursework suddenly seemed much easier to endure.
I really enjoyed my training and my time spent with Lou and my classmates at ATP!
My time at ATP was one that no dollar amount can ever be attached to. My training and my completion will be something I cherish forever. That being said, I had to learn how to study all over again. I was never rushed but a sense of urgency was placed in completion of the course. This was not meant in any way to be a distraction or to make me feel as though I needed to hurry up and finish. But instead to motivate and drive me further towards my goal…
Encouragements were never in short supply, thus why I was able to climb my way to completing this training and attaining my "Golden Ticket". I will never recommend any other school other than ATP. Their cool heads, willingness to guide students, and their kind hearts are what all others should strive to achieve, and yet they all fall short in comparison.
I just wanted to thank you and ATP again for helping start my career in the aviation industry.
I am proud to announce that I am currently a Dispatcher for CommutAir up in North Olmsted, OH. I've been with them since Nov 2nd and couldn't be happier. I also noticed on our company e-mail that we are partnering with ATP in order to hire new pilots and get them in the fast-track program all the way up to our mainline company - United Airlines.
I'm sure I will meet new pilots and dispatchers from ATP and it is nice to see my company partner with the company that allowed me a job here in the first place.
Thanks again for everything.
Lou [Lou Dimaggio, ATP Instructor] was absolutely fantastic! He truly seemed to care about our success and was great at sensing when we were not understanding or not ready to move on. He made the classes enjoyable with his great sense of humor and excellent knowledge of both aircraft dispatching and piloting. He is an excellent asset to ATP! Thanks!
Truly a great experience! Loved the school and the staff. We will be sending more students to you in the future. Keep up the good work!
Ed Gedney [ATP Instructor] was an awesome instructor. I knew I came to the right place. He was so thorough I had no problem comprehending the course material. I also had Rob Schlueter [ATP Instructor] as an instructor for the first week and he did a great job as well. I could tell they both had a gift for teaching. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend your school to anyone looking for training in the aviation industry.
Very impressed with everyone's warm welcoming. The school is very clean and loved the cozy living room… Overall, I am beyond pleased with all the available resources and the school's flexibility to help me succeed. Will definitely recommend it!!!
I just completed the Adx program this Wednesday.
I am currently a flight attendant with United based out of EWR. I wanted to express my gratitude for the schools flexibility when I had to return to work with just six days left in the program.
Most importantly, to recognize Lou [Lou DiMaggio, ATP Dispatch Instructor] who's professionalism and passion for teaching made a lasting impression. You have a true gem with him as your core instructor!
Good instructor [Chris Medrano, ATP Instructor] with good knowledge on the course material and real world experiences. Chis was able to sync both the class to actual events that was happening with the day to day, i.e. weather, etc. This made the course more enjoyable.
A very experienced and knowledgeable aviation professional [Ed Gedney, ATP Instructor]. He has a passion for sharing his knowledge with the students. He created time for students struggling with their course. He encouraged every student to raise a red flag - should we need any further explanations on the subject matter. He was very systematic in his approach to the whole program.
Chris [Chris Medrano, ATP Instructor] was an awesome instructor and helped get me motivated towards each phase of the class, written and practical tests. Chris said he attended the same school only one year earlier and is now an instructor there, he does an awesome job making sure that everyone is understanding the material being covered for that day with humor thrown into the mix to help breakup some of the dry material…
I attended this school from a referral from a prior student and am very happy with my experience attending this school and have already mentioned this class to other American Airlines employees… ATP is an established name and I am very glad that I attended the school and was in the end successful in getting my license.
