The Check Flight:
Welcome to the final stage of your Initial Training. As was mentioned earlier, this is a Virtual Check Flight.
You are just about ready to start you career as a virtual WestWind Captain. All that is left is completion of the Initial Category One check flight / check ride and to fill out the remaining paperwork. You are to be congratulated for passing your phase checks that have got you to this point. The basic idea of this virtual check ride is to fly your category one airliner from Rapid City, SD to Denver, Colorado (USA).

The check ride that you will shortly be launching into is a fairly simple flight from Rapid City, South Dakota to Denver International in Colorado. You will need to take some time to study the flight plan that has already been created for this flight so that you have some idea of the exact route you will be flying.
You will be asked to provide radio frequencies for the first center frequency and the Denver Tower frequency to complete the process. It is important that you record these frequencies during the flight to have them when you are finished.
