    Automatic Flight Assignments

    Automatic Flight Assignments are now operational! After 3 months of development and testing, the Automatic Flight Assignments system has been fully developed and approved for general VA use. This Automatic Flight Assignments system automatically assigns flights to pilots based off of a given amount of time, and we have enabled pilots the jurisdiction and ability to adjust their individual settings in that respect. The system assigns flights in correct time order. This means, that if you arrive at KATL at 17:00z, the next departure from KATL will be after 17:40z. The Automatic Flight Assignments system does not just select random flights. It looks into several factors that will determine your itinerary, such as the day of week and departure/arrival times. Night stops are possible for the early sleepers of Fly Delta Virtual. For example, if a flight arrives on a Tuesday evening and the return flight departs at 06:00z on a Wednesday morning, the system is designed to consider those types of flights for planning. When new assignments have been created, pilots will receive a notification email with a list of their assigned flights whenever any new assignments have been created. An important note to those inactive people on our roster, the system will only generate flights for active pilots. Once a pilot is inactive, the system will no longer generate any flights for this pilot and they will not receive notification emails from the system anymore. To view this new system, please visit the Crew Center and select Flight Assignments from the Flight Operations section of the Sidebar. We are proud to present the Automatic Flight Assignments system to enhance your enjoyment of the Fly Delta Virtual experience. It has been a long requested enhancement, and after a long testing period, we are excited to present it to you. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to you hub manager, or a member of the executive team. Jeff E. / DAL1706 Director of Marketing and Events View the full article

    [NOTAM] New SkyTeam Tour

    Dear Fly Delta Virtual Pilots, As the new Director of Marketing and Events, I am taking over tours, and their creation. I've planning a few tours out starting with this first one, and a few more in the coming couple of months. Tours are pretty popular among you, and we know you like to fly them. So, first, please comment as to what you would like to see in a tour? Do you have ideas? I'd love to hear them. We want to make them fun and exciting for you. So, to kick off my first tour as DME, I present: The Delta SkyTeam International Hubs tour! This tour requires completion of the Delta Current Hubs tour (domestic before International!) and hits some of the SkyTeam hubs such as Atlanta, Amsterdam (KLM), Moscow (Aeroflot), Seoul (Korean Air), Seattle (Delta), Paris (Air France), Buenos Aires (Aerolinas Argentinas), Mexico City (AeroMexico), Los Angeles (Delta), Taipei (Air China), Ho Chi Minh City (Vietnam Airlines), Shanghai (China Eastern Airlines) before heading on a very long flight back to Atlanta. On some planes you may need to weight restrict to make it, but they should make it. Have fun! As always, Tours are CAT-FREE at all times. Look for more tours to come and comment below as to what you would like to see, or tag me on Discord. Keep Climbing, Jeff / DL1706 Director of Marketing and Events View the full article
