As we close the month of May, we couldn’t be more proud of our stats. Our Washington Dulles Hub finished in first place with 161 flights for the month. Amazing results! Congratulations to our IAD team for a job well done!
Did you know that we’re sunsetting VirtualUA’s Skylink when we launch our next GEN website? We decided back in April we will be using SmartCARS. We have partnered with TFDi Design for our newest Flight Tracker. We are still exploring future development for our signature ACARS program. There will be more information to follow. For now, we ask that you get familiar with SmartCARS. Last month, we announced that we had launched our community beta for our new upcoming website. The Community Team has been working with our Technology team and is making progress. We will update everyone once we receive information from the tech group.
By popular demand from our 2019 survey, we are continuing with our quarterly Virtual Firechats, and our next meet-up will take place on Friday, June 26, 2020. Mark your calendars. The meetup will start at 1900 CST on our Discord Server. Please come out and chat with our staff and other community members. We are giving out prizes to attendees. Speaking of surveys, starting in July, we will resume monthly community feedback and suggestions.
Our upcoming Fun ‘N Sun event is in its final preparations. The event will take place on July 25. We will be heading down to the Caribbean to do some island hopping! We need your help; please fill out this short survey and help us pick a Caribbean destination. We hope to see you in attendance.
VirtualUA is currently recruiting volunteer staff members for our entire Member Relations, Operations and Communications Team. If you are compassionate for flight simulation and nonprofit, we would like to have a chat with you. If you are interested, please email us at [email protected]. That’s all for this update, our next update will be on June 23.
