Official Launch of Virtual Canada 3000 Announced
September 18th 2001
Virtual Canada 3000 would like to announce that the official launch date of our Virtual Airline is slated for Friday September 21st 2001.
Founded by the members of the former Virtual Royal Airlines, well known as the most realistic VA in existence, Virtual Canada 3000 brings together high quality aircraft, with some of the best, and most devoted flightsim pilots out there.
VC3 is proud to be able to offer a VA environment that closely parallels the operations of a real world airline, including up to date schedules, destinations, and fleet. We serve points from “Vienna to Sydney”, With an ever expanding pilot roster and a strong and devoted administrative team, we hope we can make your flightsim experience more true to real life then ever before!!!

It will not be hard to reach the highest Rank, because sometimes you’ll have very long flights - like 9 hours ++ - (e.g.: TORONTO – Europe, or Vancouver - Sydney). We also operate on a BID System, Unlike other virtual airlines, Virtual Canada 3000 assigns it's pilots to bases and to aircraft types on a bid system. Just like at the real airlines VC3 pilots can submit their bid for a base, and aircraft type. Assignments are given out according to the number of hours that a pilot has. Pilots can download a bid request sheet from the BIDs page, and there is also a BID Request Form within each new pilots package. All bids should be submitted 1 week before the end of the three month period, they are then taken by the management and are combined in our bid database, which computes the information and gives us the assignments which we will then place on the pilots web page. even though we operate on a bid system, there is still a minimum requirement of hours to be eligible for upgrade to a new aircraft. This insures that each of our pilots gets some time to fly each aircraft type, and that our VA can operate all of it's fleet on all of its routes.

All Other Flight Numbers
VIRTUAL C3 operate out of four bases: TORONTO, VANCOUVER, MONTREAL, and HALIFAX. New pilots who join VC3 will be assigned to a base, at the end of the first 3 month period a pilot will be able to bid for a new base. When you have general questions or Company related questions, please feel free to contact us at any time.
The Pilots Section, You will find a list of all of our pilots, there ranks, and total hours. This is also where a pilot will be able to download their new flights for the period.
As mentioned before this airline uses several types of aircrafts, The Airbus A340-300, Airbus A330-200, Airbus A310-300, Boeing 757-200ER, Airbus A320-200, Airbus A319-100 and the Boeing 737-200. However, not all of these aircraft can be flown at the same time. When a pilot first joins, he or she are only qualified to fly the Boeing 737-200. As the pilot adds hours to his or her VC3 file he or she will be able to bid for a new aircraft type. If the real Canada 3000 makes fleet changes then VC3 will also add those planes to our fleet. If new aircraft come online with VC3 the first pilots to be assigned with the new aircraft will be those with the highest rank. The first pilot to fly a new aircraft must file a report to the company which will be made available to the other pilots on the flying characteristics of a new aircraft type added into the fleet.
