Announcements / So, what's happening?
« on: September 14, 2017, 10:33:15 PM »

Thankyou for your patience in regards to smartcars.... I have managed to get us a brand new lifetime license which is now up and running. As it is a new licence you will need to re install smartcars. Your logon details will be the same as before, and service will resume as previously. Thanks

Hi Everyone! I hope you're all doing well.
I am now starting the process fo buying the Virtual Airline from it's founder Joseph. There shouldn't be any issues with the VA during this process. I am also in the process of getting SMARTCARS sorted, so everything will go back to normal... finally! I hope to be seeing you all in the virtual skies very soon. In the meantime, and not for long, manual PIREPS it is.
Thankyou all for your patience and feedback, I really appreciate it.

Announcements / Creating, and Using a Simbrief Flightplan... Guide
« on: July 30, 2017, 10:31:53 PM »
Hi All,

Just in case you don't know how to plan a flight I have made a guide which will take you through the process step by step. There is lots of detail to help you understand... but it's easy to follow so don't worry.

It ranges from Creating the OFP, to Viewing & Downloading it; to Prefiling on VATSIM or PilotEdge; downloading an FMS File as well as a quick guide on reading the Flightplan and it's most important information.

There is also some explanations of other things for you to have a read through!

To view it you can find it in the downloads section of the website, or follow this Google Drive Link:

Any costructive feedback leave a reply!.. It's always appreciated

Flight Reporting / smartCARS issues & a temporary fix
« on: February 10, 2017, 01:15:14 PM »
Afternoon all,

I have had issues reported to me about smartCARS not allowing you to see bidded flights; or fly those flights.

To fix this there is two options:
1) Bid the flight via the website, then track it using smartcars.

2) If you bid the flight, and still doesn't allow you to view the bid in smartcars/fly the flight you are to continue with the flight. You are then to go to 'Resources' --> 'Pilot Centre' --> 'My flight bids' --> 'File PIREP' and input the data manually; a member of staff will accept the PIREP.

The following should be included in the manual PIREP:
1.) Route Flown- Full route please including any SID/STAR used
2.) Fuel Burn (enter in PIREP field)
3.) Time in the air
4.) Aircraft registration
5.) Reason for using the manual PIRPEP system
* If any details such as VATSIM tracking can be proven please also add if applicable
** If you have a recorded landing rate please add as well

I have allowed this on a temporary basis and this should not be abused.

Any issues please reply to this post.

Announcements / Aircraft Give Away!
« on: January 12, 2017, 02:39:31 PM »

Hi everyone,

We have been in contact with Wilco, the people that have made the Falcon 7x

We have proposed an idea to give away one of the licenses! For a chance to win one, and get your hands on a highly detailed aircraft for free, all you have to do is sign up to the Flying Club, fly 2 routes, then reply to this forum post. I will put your names in a hat and pick on at random... the winner will then be announced in 2 weeks. You have until Thursday 26th January 2017!

Good luck!

Announcements / Virtual Airline TeamSpeak/Communication Rules
« on: November 19, 2016, 08:22:29 PM »
Dear Pilots and Staff,

I would just like to remind you all of some of the very few rules we have in place at regarding communication, both voice and text on platforms such as TeamSpeak or any othe platform that allows members to communicate to eachother.

When joining TeamSpeak:
You will be automatically placed into the ‘Guests’ section. A staff member will add you
to the relevant area.

When using the TeamSpeak server, which has been given to you all as a free and easy communication tool you are expected to be extremely careful with what you say and how you say it.

There rules apply at all times (no exceptions!)
- Come with a positive attitude towards all virtual airlines that use the server
- Come with a positive attitude towards everyone on the server
- Profanity should be kept to an absolute minimum
- Treat other how you want to be treated
- Treat everyone with respect, especially staff
- No racist or homophobic comments are to be made (if such do occur this can and will lead to an automatic ban)
- Only staff members can become channel commanders and priority speakers - this applies to highest ranking staff member present

If you are warned more than 3 times about bad language (profanity), attitude or anything else a staff members sees fit you will be kicked. If this behaviour continues you will be banned from the server all together and possibly the Virtual Airline.

There is specific areas within TeamSpeak for specific people.
Under the Jet2Virtual tab (only for our use) is Staff Room, Pilot Room and and Training Room.

- Staff are able to use any chat room if they so desire depending on what is going on.
- Members are to use the Pilot Room at all times (unless Training)
- The Training Room is only to be used when Pilots undergo training which they have asked for with a member of staff.

I also advise that Pilots, and Staff especially take a look at the Operations Policy which can be found in the downloads section. I will make an update to the Operations Policy within the coming days.
