WestWind Summer Hub Tour!

This summer Westwind Airlines will take you on a guided tour of some of our finest mini-hubs around the world!

July starts with Anchorage. Alaska is well known in Westwind pilots’ hearts as a spectacular place both scenery and weather-wise! The state provides the ultimate challenge in bush flying, as the tough terrain, poor visibility, and stormy weather provide a challenge even for the best of pilots.

As both a major WWA cargo hub and a WWA passenger "mini-hub", Anchorage has a diverse route network. The guys over in Westwind Cargo couldn’t have picked nicer aircraft to fly out of Anchorage! Based in PANC, we have Boeing 727s, Lockheed L188 Electras, and an old DC-8, all of which make flying in the region much more interesting!

Dates: July 6, 2009 to July 12, 2009

Location: Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport (PANC)

Who Do We Want Involved?

We want you! We’re looking for every pilot possible for this and all the rest of the editions of the tour! On the VATSIM network we are looking for everybody and anybody! If you can fly, join us! No matter who you are, which VA you're with, or which callsign you fly under, you are welcome to join us on our adventure!

What Are We Doing?

WestWind pilots have put in long hours and have been dedicated throughout the airline's existence. This is a chance for our pilots to take a well-deserved holiday in Anchorage, take some interesting flights and get to meet some of the other pilots! You could just go up and take up a floatplane for a week and mess around, or you can fly some of the amazing routes that our airline has from Anchorage, Fairbanks and Juneau. Most of all, you get a chance to meet up with your fellow virtual aviators, have a few virtual beers, and generally just have a good time!

How Is It Done?

Same as a normal flight! Just sign in and sign out! There is no difference in the flight logging system, just use the Flight Dispatch and that’s it!!
