First we introduce the flight dispatcher who supports the flight crew on the ground. Before the flight, the flight dispatchers investigate the weather, cloud conditions, turbulence and other factors on the flight route. They also check detailed weather information at the departure and arrival airports, such as wind direction, wind speed, visibility, ceiling (minimum cloud height), and runway conditions. They then determine the flight route and altitude and draw up a flight plan. The gross weight of the departing airplane is calculated from the number of passengers and amount of cargo on board. They also calculate the quantity of fuel required to reach the destination airport plus the quantity of fuel required to reach the alternate airport should the aircraft be unable to land at its primary destination, and complete the fuel loading plan. In addition, they check information regarding the planned flight route, which runways can be used at each airport, information on taxiways, and radio frequencies used by air traffic control.
