Flight Dispatchers generally obtain higher salaries for more plentiful past experience. New salaries start at $37K and reach $49K in five to 10 years. Those with one to two decades of experience under their belt tend to see salaries around $55K. As Flight Dispatchers reach 20 years on the job, salary increases slow down a bit, averaging $60K. Experienced employees who have 10-20 years of experience make up 27 percent of the workforce; inexperienced individuals who have been working for less than one year comprise less than five, and senior people with more than 20 years under their belt fill out the remaining 10 percent. More than half of respondents report having between one and nine years of experience in this field.
