Virtual Airlines / JoinAvA Group Flights!

For the past few months, we at American Virtual Airlines are doing this regular weekly group flights. The most recent one was our support for Denver's Community Control Nights. Which means flights is to originate or terminate at any of Denver ARTCC's airports. Often, we take into consideration where the traffic is needed, to aid an on-going controller training or check-out. So it's kind of like a Pilot Hit Squad, so-to-speak. We've been in and out of Denver for the past 2 months if I can recall it correctly, and now, we're changing our locations to ARTCCs where traffic is most needed to boost traffic, and controller training.

These coming weeks, we'll be going in and out of Salt Lake ARTCC, upon their request. This will be then our Monday Group Flights. Our Wednesday Group Flights will be reserved for our European tour, however, if there's a need, or if in any way we can provide you some traffic for your controller's training, please do not hesitate to contact us at [email protected]

We're looking forward to improve our ties with VATUSA ARTCCs even more, and assist the much needed controller training whenever possible.

Kind regards,

American Virtual Airlines Celebrates Its 10th Anniversary – Celebration Announcement

American Virtual Airlines (AvA) is celebrating its 10th Anniversary on VATSIM throughout the
month of June. We invite all virtual airlines to join in this celebration. Our celebration kicks off
with an open house on Saturday, June 4. AvA pilots will be departing from AA hubs to arrive
in our home at Dallas/Fort Worth between 2200z-0200z. Our fellow virtual airlines are invited
to fly from their respective hubs into DFW to arrive during that time. We are expecting full ATC
from our amazing partners at DFW ARTCC. Following the arrival, pilots are then encouraged
to turn their aircraft and continue to a destination of their choice. Come join us for this huge
celebration!

American Virtual Airlines was formed on June 1, 2001 and was was one of the first virtual
airlines to join VATSIM. Since that time, AvA has become one of the premier VATSIM-only
virtual airline with nearly 500 active pilots who fly over 100,000 hours yearly. AvA has pilot
hubs in Los Angeles, Dallas/Fort Worth, Chicago O’Hare, Boston, Miami, New York, and San
Juan and flies a huge range of current aircraft to include the Embraer, Candair CRJ-700, ATR-72,
MD-80, 737, 757, 767, and 777.

If you are interested in flying with a great group of folks and want a virtual airline that
understands why you fly, check us out at joinava.org.

See you there!

Honolulu (vHCF) / Honolulu's Website
« on: April 23, 2011, 02:45:25 PM »
As part of our efforts to improve the facility, we've decided to re-do the entire website and our forums. I would like to give my very talented Web Manager Peter Shivery credits for all the things that you might encounter on the website. Along with that, we will come up with an event in the coming month of May, so you might want to watch out for this one. In case you weren't aware, our last event was back in February's Friday Night Operations.

Anyways enough of the talking, here's the link, have a look, enjoy!

The Control Room Floor / ILS before visual?
« on: December 07, 2010, 12:54:43 AM »
I was watching this AA video I found on YouTube - link at the bottom of my post. It's AAL001 from JFK to LAX. One instance during their approach phase I heard SoCal approach gave them clearance for the ILS 24L and then shortly cleared them visual 24L after the traffic pointouts. I've never seen this anywhere in the .65 or I missed something, but can someone clarify if it's possible or "okay" to clear them for the ILS and the visuals later?

thanks!

Link to the video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cijc5AUmwZY

At 06:50 you can hear SoCal app giving them clearance for the ILS24L at this certain fix. Then at 07:24 after the traffic pointout, Socal app then gave them clearance for the visual.

Virtual Airlines / Christmas in Colorado

When: On December 12, departures will start at 20:00z [10:00 HAST, 12:00 PST, 13:00 MST, 15:00 EST]

It's Christmas time - and AvA is ready! AvA will be flying in to Aspen, Colorado (KASE) from 2 separate departure points. Aspen is a relatively small airfield, you can't land anything BIGGER than a 737 in there, if not hard, impossible - BUT you're more than welcome to try. So this is a perfect time for you to fly your regional jet and or favorite heavy in to an interesting and challenging destination! Do not worry tho, Eagle County (KEGE) will be staffed just IN case you won't make it down to Aspen in your 757, there's definitely no ILS at Aspen, so no chance for you to use any autoland feature here. It's just the VOR/DME to runway 15 approach.

All ORD, JFK, BOS and LAX crew will depart KJFK (JFK-ASE: RBV ETX J60 DBL) - ETE 3hrs 30mins
Note: Please don't forget to plan for extra fuel those who are planning to fly to Aspen, typically, when traffic level rises, you can expect a hold over Red Table (DBL). ATC should be assigning you the SID for JFK.

All DFW, SJU, MIA and TRG crew will depart KMIA. (MIA-ASE: MIA1/WINCO1.WINCO J43 SZW J41 MEM RZC J182 GLD J80 FQF) - ETE 4hrs 30mins
Note: Don't forget to bring more than your 'average' fuel - if you're lucky, you might be put on hold somewhere over ZDV. MIA1 is the preferred departure and WINCO1 for RNAV.

In the spirit of Christmas, everyone are invited to join this fun-filled event. AvA will be departing from JFK and MIA beginning at 20:00z (w/ ATC coverage of course). Whatever your (airplane's) color is, we would love to see you join us and make this event an afternoon worth remembering for everybody.

Best Regards,

General Discussion / [Thu Oct 1 0800z] Tower OTS Practical Exam WSSS
« on: September 30, 2009, 08:02:20 AM »
I know this has nothing to do with VATUSA, but as crazy as this sounds, I'm asking for your support! I have been on Tower for over 2 years now, and I think it's about time I step into another level. With your help, this will for sure be possible. So if you don't have anything to do on the given time and day, please drop by at Singapore!  

See you there!
