Wright Stuff Aircraft Dispatcher School is a startup education business established to prepare students to pass the FAA Professional Dispatcher Licensing Exam and become highly effective professional flight dispatcher.  One of the school’s co-founders is New Albany resident Adam Beckman who also serves as a Lecturer at The Ohio State University.
Wright Stuff’s mission is to provide the highest quality dispatch training. Training is designed to far exceed the one-week “crash” courses frequently offered by others educators serving this profession.  Wright Stuff is proud of its thorough test preparation and the completeness of the education it delivers.
Wright Stuff will be conducting classes on Monday and Tuesday evenings at Innovate New Albany, starting Monday August 5, 2019.  Soon, Wright Stuff plans to run classes in metro areas across the US.  And ultimately, Wright Stuff intends to deliver education in an online format.
