Airline Dispatchers Federation.
Representing the professional interests of the Aircraft Dispatcher.

 The Airline Dispatchers Federation represents the professional interests of the dispatch profession.   ADF's constituency is comprised of licensed aircraft dispatchers and operational control professionals from aerospace companies, regional and cargo carriers and every major U.S. airline.   ADF's membership as of January 2022 stood at 1,721 members.  The vast majority 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.
