Job Description for Flight Coordinator
Flight coordinators work primarily for the military, airline companies, and corporations which maintain their own airplanes and/or helicopters. These coordinators schedule and coordinate flight activity in accordance with standard operating procedures and General Operating and Flight Rules (14 CFR Part 91) issued by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), and also provide schedules and itineraries to flight crew, such as pilots, flight attendants, and flight engineers.Read More...
Flight coordinators may assist flight crew with accommodation arrangements, such as for staying overnight in different locations. When scheduling flights, they must ensure the safe takeoff and landing of airplanes and may call alternate pilots, flight engineers, or flight attendants due to unexpected absences. They may also coordinate or oversee aircraft maintenance staff, monitor flight departures and arrivals, compile pre-flight procedures, and ensure that flight operations are conducted in a safe and efficient manner. They must also ensure that all pilots and flight attendants comply with established FAA rules and regulations and review the flight crew's Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) on an ongoing basis.
A bachelor's degree may be required for this position, and these coordinators must be able to work in a team environment and work calmly under pressure. Communication skills are also important, and some may be tasked with training new flight coordinators. (Copyright 2018 PayScale.com)
