Flight Dispatcher jumpseat privileges

Post by Panama Jack »

Do Dispatchers at 705 airlines have non-rev Jumpseat privileges for commuting like pilots?

Yes and no. Some airlines may differ, but the general policy across the industry (as far as I've seen) is that dispatchers are legally able to fly in the cockpit (they do for training), but are not offered jumpseat for personal travel.

I've flown with dispatchers in the jumpseat twice. I believe they were required to do a ride along once a year either by TC or by the company, but not sure which. Otherwise I've personally never seen it done, but take that FWIW.
