I would like to give you some advice, I hope that it does not come across as condescending, but part of being a mentor is giving advice even when it is not positive in nature.
Don’t be that 150 hour pilot that thinks he knows everything, it isn’t a good look and quite honestly isn’t true. Flight ops understands your situation just fine. They know where the weather is, where you are and that you want to fly. These are FAA certified dispatchers, they know the weather A LOT better than you do and are keeping you out of areas that could develop into problem areas, thus keeping two new pilots safe. They also know the needs of students that are ahead of you in the program and aircraft routing and maintenance needs. They see the big picture and are implementing a plan in a manner that makes the most sense for all of the students in the program while keeping safety as the number one priority.
Part of being an airline pilot is learning to trust your dispatchers. A classic example of this is the EWR bound pilot that can’t get into EWR and decides on his own to divert into PHL because “it is right there”, only to land and find out that PHL has fourteen diversions on the ramp, every jetway is taken, and it is going to be two hours until he can get fuel.
On the other hand, the pilot that consulted dispatch would have known that by flying just a few minutes further to BWI he would have found an airport with only two diversions on the ramp and no wait time for fuel. The point is that the pilots do not always have the big picture, but dispatch does. Dispatchers are a pilot’s best ally, they are incredible resource when used properly.
