Virtual Airline

Mon Apr 22, 2002 10:59 pm


This is perhaps a stupid idea, but I think I'll join a virtual airline. I have no idea what it will be like, but I'll give it a try.
Do you have any to recomend?
I want it to pretty big so I can fly different types of aircrafts but most big ones (777, A330/340, 747).

Any ideas?

Most VAs you have to fly small aircraft for a long time before you get into the heavies (like in a real airline).

There are exceptions of course.
I fly for TradeWind Caribbean (http://www.tradewind.org), we don't work like that. Fly any plane anywhere as long as you can get it back home again (so dare land a 747 at Saba but don't expect us to come with a ship to get it back to Curacao  Smile/happy/getting dizzy ).
Currently no large Airbusses in the fleet, but the 747-400 is available as is a DC10. MD-11 will be available in the near future.
I wish I were flying

I fly for BA Virtual http://www.bavirtual.co.uk

Voted best CEO 2002 and best VA 2002 i think  Big thumbs up

The first 50 hours you can fly 319,320,734,752 and 763

Then you add the 744 to that (after a certain number more hours)

Then the 772 (same as above)

Then the CONC  Wink/being sarcastic

BA777

Maybe Scandinavian Virtual Airlines?  Big grin
http://www.scandva.org/sva.htm

The first ten hours has to be flown in the Fokker F50, then you have to fly either the F50, Dash 8-Q400 or Boeing 737-600 for another 20hrs and so on, to get to the big bird (Large Aircraft: MD90, B763, A343) you have to fly atleast 60hrs in the smaller birds.

Before you can fly at all you have to perform a checkride in the F50 to show that you can fly the bird, it's not really a big deal but worth mentioning  Big grin
You can find more info at their website.

why not AA virtual?

you get to fly props until you have 50 hours, then you can switch to commuter jets and you get to fly bigger jets jets as you get more hours.

We also fly the real AA schedule and you can choose between one of 6 hubs which are: Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Saint Louis and San Juan.
