Student Learning Outcomes

Discipline: Aeronautics, Transportation Certificate: FAA Aircraft Dispatcher - E0408
Course Name Course Number Objectives
Aircraft Dispatcher Operations AERO 254
  • Students will be able to analyze weather forecasts to determine departure minimums and possible alternates, routing, and destination alternate(s).
Multi-Engine Turbine Aircraft Operations AERO 258
  • Students will be able to differentiate characteristics of high speed flight that require special action by pilots previously trained in lower performance aircraft.
  • Students will be able to diagram aircraft subsystems (including hydraulic systems and emergency equipment), to include identification of primary components and their function
  • Diagram aircraft subsystems (including hydraulic systems and emergency equipment), to include identification of primary components and their function.
  • Combine performance data for a multi-engine turbine aircraft to determine operational safety relative to takeoff and landing distance criteria and operational air speeds.
  • Analyze subsystem malfunctions (simulated) that might occur during emergency conditions and provide resolution scenarios that are applicable to the safe completion of the flight.
  • Identify characteristics of high speed flight that require special action by pilots previously trained in lower performance aircraft.
  • Relate performance characteristics to observed cockpit indications, including the detection of parameters outside of normal expected performance.
