This looks great, but good luck getting dispatchers to be there in real time.

Virtual Airlines / Curious Question

five airframes

pmdg 737 ngx any model doesnt matter.. they are all pretty much the same; this is your main workhorse.. domestic flights I would personally go with the 700 model and fly the crap out of it.. this will be your bread and butter plane. this will fly the medium to smaller domestic routes.  for example.  KBOS-KLGA-KPHL-KIAD-KCLT-KATL-KMCO-KMIA, etc etc.

pmdg 777 either 200 or 300 or both.. doesnt matter. this will be used for your international flights. across both ponds etc.

qw 787   - when it comes out.. i think that will be a winner. this you could use for your long domestic flights. think coast to coast.. like KJFK to KLAX, or KLAX, TO KMCO, etc.

majestic q400   - you will need a good commuter that will go from your major hubs to the little regionals. out and back.

now your last slot..  there are many ways to go..
you could do a bizjet.. if you want to do a little charter division, etc.


you could bring something like the B1900D. I'm thinking Carenado's.

this would be a great area for pilots who sign up and don't have any experience flying the more complictated airplanes. It could also appeal to people like myself. who wouldnt mind flying for a larger organization without having to comitt to such a steep learning curve.

if it be up to me.. I'd go B1900D

and then add a charter division and a cargo division down the road..

but anyway, there is  your five.

I watch a lot of VA's and I have to say, your website is just stunning!

It has an air of sophistication and oozes professionalism.

Flying payware aircraft and scenery (ORBX).

We assign flights.

We allow time compression for flights over two hours and the pilot gets credit for the simulated time not actual flying time.

We have very short flights.

We offer sightseeing flights and the ability to give airplane rides.

The largest plane right now is the B200.

We use VAFS

How you fly maters.

Virtual Airlines / Looking for a specific VA
« on: August 30, 2013, 09:44:32 AM »
I'm looking for a VA that does/keeps track of things like this:

On time performance.. being late would affect your pilot rating or something like that.

and where fuel planning is important and matters.

so many VA's only hours matter.

I don't care about finances..

this is not necessary, but it would be nice to have the a/c cycled into maintenance when needed etc.

any such VA?

well bummer, I guess it is what it is..

I think what VATSIM really needs is a universal software for all pilots... oh boy talk about a can of worms now!

wow, I had no idea, I thought everyone could here everyone if they were in range and on the correct channel..

That is a bad limitation.. sometimes it is very awkward to type your callouts.

oh my goodness are you serious?  I thought you could use unicom in voice if you have FSINN.

so much for VATSIM being "real"   that has got to be the most STUPIDEST rule ever!

Quote from: Don Desfosse
You can actually still, in some places in the country (though not many anymore), fly IFR point to point, all in Class G, all without talking to anyone.  As I used to tell my flight students, what's legal isn't necessarily smart (and vice-versa)!

I was aware of all these nuances, and actually had another 4 long paragraphs in my original response, but before I hit the Save button, re-read the answer, and decided that I didn't want to answer a high-school level question with a doctoral thesis, crush the poor guy in 800 pages of nuances, and have him feel queasy.  I tried to answer the question with a quick, painless answer that took into account at least 92% of the complete answer that would probably satisfy 99.9998% of VATSIM pilots/operations.  I asked if the explanation helped, figuring that if there was a nuance that needed more explanation, a follow-on question could come.  

In other words, the KISS principle!

mmm.. after going over your math.. I think you meant to say ... would probably satisfy 99.9997% of VATSIM pilots/operations....
but you were very close.....

I fly in the PNW area and I fly a lot to little uncontrolled airstrips.

If say Seattle center is controlling, do I still have to go through him? or can I just make my calls on 122.8? (I"m using FSINN)

I understand that after take off I can contact center if I want flight following, yes? But, I'm not required to, yes?
