WTC - Transition Training

Training for Upgrading Pilots

Transition Training

The aim of the Transition Training is to provide you with a type rating for the next category of aircraft you are ready to fly. As you will see, the exercises are the same for Cat II to Cat V. The exercises are simple, but effective in allowing you to feel comfortable with the new aircraft you will be flying. They will also help you understand the difference between what you have been flying, and what you are about to fly.


The WestWind Airlines promotional system works by aircraft category. When you are rated to fly Cat III aircraft, you may fly each WestWind aircraft in that category. For the purposes of the training exercises, I would encourage you to choose one aircraft from the group and stick with that for the duration of the training.

Session One In this session, you will conduct some general handling exercises to help you get a feel for the new category of aircraft you are training in.
Session Two This exercise concentrates on asymmetric handling. There is also an exercise looking at the glide performance of your aircraft as well.
Session Three Session Three is conducted wholly around Denver, in the Training Circuit or Traffic Pattern if you prefer. You will conduct standard and asymmetric circuits until you feel comfortable in operating the aircraft in this phase of flight.
Virtual Check Flight When you have completed the above three exercises, it's time to embark on your real flight, your Virtual Check Ride.
Training Completion Form Once you have completed your Virtual Check Flight, you will need to complete a Training Completion Form so that we can process your promotion.
