The Airline Dispatchers Federation is the only national organization representing the professional interests of the dispatch profession. ADF's constituency is comprised of licensed aircraft dispatchers and operational control professionals from 100 aerospace companies including every major U.S. airline. ADF's membership at the end of 2009 stood at 1500 members. It has been estimated that approximate 92% of airline passengers traveling each day in the United States, do so under the watchful eye of ADF members.
The ADF is an all volunteer organization (all working dispatchers) and in accordance with our bylaws is an advocacy organization for working dispatchers and not a labor organization.
