Who am I:

I am passionate about Aviation. I have been part of this ever changing, dynamic and lively sector for a decade and it’s exciting as well as fulfilling to be a part of the team that brings people together. I see people at the airport hug their loved ones with their tears of joy and I cannot help but smile that I was a part of the team that made this happen.
I have a growth mindset and I do not like to sit in the comfort zone, actively learning and actively participating in new experiences and professional courses. I spend most of my free time either reading books, taking online courses or learning new languages. Life has it’s ups and downs and every time a setback hits me, I take it on a positive note and learn from my mistakes.

What I do:

I am a Flight Dispatcher who prepares Flight Plans and briefs operating crew. It’s as simple and as complicated as that. A Flight Dispatcher directly impacts the safety & efficiency of the operation as well as the airline.
In addition to the duties and responsibilities of a Flight Dispatcher, I prepare Flight Dispatch Manual and Flight Dispatch Training Manual on annual basis taking into account state regulations and IOSA regulations. Furthermore, I represent Flight Dispatch in IOSA & AOC audits. I am responsible to the overflying permissions of all adhoc sectors and also the responsibility of monitoring all Notams, analyzing them and preparing altenate routes based on them. I am the system administrator of the Flight Planning system in-charge of keeping the system updated. I am also a SAG (Safety Action Group) member.
I face several challenges in a day and transform those challenges into opportunities.

Why you should follow me on Linkedin:

I spend most of my time reading books specifically on Aviation. Whenever I come across something that I believe would be beneficial to my followers, I share that valuable knowledge on Linkedin. All of my posts are meticulously researched in order to provide authentic knowledge.
