    CAT FREE extended until Labor Day!

    Due to the recent excitement involving our CAT FREE June, we decided to go the entire summer CAT FREE. I hope all of you enjoy your heavy metal. Also, July's destination of the month will be Boston, MA. We figured since Boston played such an important role in the Revolutionary War, it would make the perfect city to feature in July. All flights in and out of Boston will earn double hours.

    Tour Leg Too Long For Aircraft

    Range for the MD-88 should be 2933nm and that flight leg is 2450nm. I will tell you to fly it, and if needed, I will allow you to add fuel if you see you are not going to make it. If that is the case, put a note in the remarks to ask Mark about refuel. I think you should make it. Pack lightly!

    Bring back the map!

    It is coming very soon! We are planning on putting it on the home page as well. It is a hard feature to code, but I expect it up within the next couple of weeks.

    We have been invited by the oldest VA in existence, to their group fly in this coming Monday, April 16th, from 7:00PM to 10:00PM CDT. This event will only feature a destination airport of KLAS. What does that mean? It means you can depart any location you want, just plan on arriving in Vegas between the posted hours. Plenty of ATC will be present. For more information, click on the link https://imgur.com/a/ZUeFB. We hope to see everyone there!

    Fake VA?

    Andrew, we are glad to have you here with us. I believe the pilot you are referring to is Mackenzie. I know her from another VA as well. I believe what you were seeing from the other VA, is anytime you used the PM in the old site forum, Your email went to that person plus Jay Roberts. I noticed the same thing when I PM’d someone over there. I felt it was very strange that he would also be viewing a conversation that I thought was in private.

    Transfer hours

    Thank you for allowing me to explain the situation. We still have a few kinks to work out. At the very least, know that you have a staff looking out for you, and one that will face every question or concern you have head on. As of a few minutes ago, we just added smartCARS as another option to log your flights along with the Sky Club app.

    Fake VA?

    Glad to have you here Jesse. I remember we go back to another VA we were both staff on. I’ve received a few of the emails myself, like 25 of them. When the other VA website went down last week, we didn’t know what to think, so we opened this one up. I know we may have made a few mistakes, but you guys have the full support of a very fine staff here. That’s what you all deserve.

    Transfer hours

    By they way, the staff has voted and it has been agreed that 100% of Vatsim hours will now be accepted. I want to thank you Brandon for pointing out some issues that we could improve on. That’s what we are here for.

    Transfer hours

    Brandon, I sent you a personal email. I hope it gets to you and you reconsider.

    Transfer hours

    Thank you for the suggestion. We will take your advice and post the SOP on the main page. The hours listed in your profile is 811. Your vatsim statistics show just a little more than that, and your profile that you sent us to link your hours says 811.09. Am I missing something here?
  18. Mark Springsteen

    Transfer hours

    We accepted total hours if you came over from the other Delta Virtual Airlines. Basically, we extended everything except your logbook. Hope it makes sense. If you believe your hours are not what you think they should be, let me know.

    Can't Connect XP11 to ACARS

    I wish I could answer your question, but I do not use XPLANE11. Maybe someone who does will chime in soon. I know that it does work because we have many users using both.

    Fake VA?

    This is not a transition, this is a new VA. The VA was created because the Owner and Founder of the other VA left everyone of you. He did not respond for over two months to his own staff. If that's the kind of service you expect, then that's the VA for you. If you like a staff that answers questions and makes improvements on a daily basis, then this is the VA for you. We did recruit some pilots from the other VA because we thought they would be interested in something better. If recruiting is poaching, I guess we are guilty. In the end, you have a choice. Fly with them, us, or both. It's really that simple.

    Fake VA?

    I’m not sure. We are real. 230 pilots and growing every minute.

    How to Properly Fly a Tour

    I am posting about this subject, because I have noticed some of you are flying one of our tours,and are not getting the credit you deserve. When you want to fly a tour, the first thing you need to do is sign up for the tour on the tour page and select the aircraft you wish to use for the entire tour. Once that is done, you will need to do all your bidding from within the tour page. So , you are all signed up for the MLB National League Tour, you then go to bid on leg. Once you bid on the first leg of the tour, which is KLGA to KPHL, you will get a big green check mark that indicates your bid has been added to your bid schedule. So you go to Sky Club ACARS, select bids, and it will show up in your bid sheet. Hit fly and the flight will be added to ACARS and you are ready to fly. Once you complete the flight and submit it to the website, you can go back into the tour page and start the process all over again, until the tour is completed. Any questions, please ask in this forum. Blue Skies!
