The Aim of the Westwind Training Center is to provide you with a type rating for each category of aircraft you fly. At the end of the training, you will take a Virtual Check Flight which will allow you to take what you have learnt, and put it into an operations environment.
As you can well imagine, pilots who attend the WestWind Training Center have a broad range of experience. As such, we have set a fairly low level of assumed knowledge. If you have read the Flight Simulator handbook, then you will meet the required assumed knowledge.

Ever wondered about getting some Maps and Charts for Flight Sim. This page should answer some of your questions about what you need, what is available, and where to lay your hands on some.
The Westwind Training Center (DENT) is located at the Rocky Mountain Metropolitan Airport (KBJC) on the West Ramp. Our facilities include a modern pilotís lounge with multiple briefing rooms, a hangar large enough to store our entire fleet of training aircraft and includes shuttle bus service to our Academic and Simulator Center DENT-SIM located across the street from the airport property.
KBJC offers WestWind pilots challenging high altitude operations with plains to the east and plenty of complex mountainous terrain to the west all encompassed close to the Denver Class B airspace. With two ILS, two RNAV and a VOR approach and multiple DPs and STARs in and out of the local Denver area KBJC also offers plenty for the instrument pilot. All of this with the cozy atmosphere of a regional airport.
After a hard day in the air, or on the ground, come by The Closet -- WestWind's official pub -- for a cool drink and some lively hangar talk. The Closet has been around as long as WestWind airlines, and has followed us from our original head office in Houston then to Charleston, and finally to Denver. We'll see you there.
