Flight Operations Center

The flight operations center employs student dispatchers and plane washers/line personnel.  Student workers help the rest of the aviation team keep the flight operations center running seven days a week.

 

Chris Tiller - Student Dispatcher, Flight Operations major and Sophomore--has private pilot certificate and instrument rating

Hometown: Oregon City, OR

Hobbies: snowboarding, flying, building kit RC planes, martial arts and NERF

What I like about my campus job: The atmosphere at flight ops is very welcoming yet professional. Plus I get a great view of the airport from my desk.

What I like about Westminster: It's very personable. It has a community of its own, even nested in the middle of suburbia. I can walk from one end of campus to the other, see people I know, and never get the sense that I'm even in the city.

What I like about Utah/Salt Lake City: Sugarhouse, in particular, is a great college town. Within a short walk from campus you can get to several fast food joints, a dollar theater, a grocery store, and several other great shopping spots. Utah is a beautiful state, especially the Salt Lake valley. The mountains are close and the nearest slopes are only a thirty-minute drive.

Favorite Restaurant: Red Ginger

Favorite Hangouts: Biking in the hills north of the city and Ensign Peak lookout


Melissa Brimage - Student Dispatcher, Public Health/RN major

Hometown: San Luis Obispo, CA

Hobbies: running, reading, yoga, outdoor climbing

What I like about my campus job: I love how this job has nothing to do with my major. I can enjoy learning about aviation without the stress of being tested on it.

What I like about Westminster: This school has given me the opportunity to pursue interests that I would have never dreamed of if I went anywhere else. Plus, my professors are sincere individuals, with plenty of life experiences in the fields they teach.

What I like about Utah/Salt Lake City: the weather. You never know what you are going to wake up to.

Favorite Restaurant: Star of India (mmmmm Tandoori Lamb)


Alexandra Consolver - Flight Operations major, class of 2015

Hometown: Aurora, CO

Hobbies: anything to do with Harry Potter

What I like about my campus job: I like seeing how my work directly helps my friends and peers.

What I like about Westminster: It's such a close community; you can't walk around campus or flight ops without seeing lots of friendly faces.

What I like about Utah/Salt Lake City: Salt Lake City is a lot like the town where I grew up. It was really easy to adjust when I came out here. The only thing I had to get used to what the mountains in the EAST.

Advice to new aviation students: No one says it'll be easy, but it will all be worth it in the end.

Favorite Restaurant: The Pie. Two words: cinnamon pull-apart.


 

 


Taylor (TJ) Westerberg - Flight Operations major-class of 2015

Hometown: Salem, OR

Hobbies: reading, watching movies, traveling, and trying new things

What I like about my campus job: I like being able to get to know everyone and become more familiar with flight ops procedures. Everyone is so fun to be around out here!

What I like about Westminster: I love the small class sizes and knowing my teachers on a more personal level. It makes it easier to learn when the teacher knows your name and knows what areas you need extra help in.

What I like about Utah/Salt Lake City: Salt Lake is an interesting community and there's so much to do! Outdoor activities, movies, plays, operas, bowling, etc. My weekends are never the same!

Advice for new aviation students: Have fun! Having a positive attitude and a willingness to learn will take you far and make the school experiences you have more beneficial.

Favorite Restaurants: Mo Bettas and My Thai.
