Happy Anniversary VUA

Today, VirtualUA, Inc. has hit the ten-year mark. Our journey is like a roller coaster – you are afraid to start, but at the same time excited, and when the button ON was clicked, and you feel like your heart is trying to leave your body, the journey cannot be stopped; anything you can do is to enjoy your trip. That is what we did, enjoy every moment, learn from each mistake, support each other during hard times and press the accelerator pedal. When VirtualUA was founded in 2012, we were a small team in a challenging flight simulation community with a well-defined vision, confident and eager to grow. After ten years of hard work, we remained just as ambitious as we started; however, we gained more experience and strengthened our skills and collaborations.

Celebrating ten years of VirtualUA, it’s all about our members, our staff, and partners – people who made our community success possible. I am very grateful to all staff for their dedication and patience, delivering quality to our members, and making VirtualUA an incredible community.

Thank you to all who have supported VirtualUA on its way to success; I am very proud of our achievements.

Happy 10th anniversary to all, and here’s to many more!”

President/CEO

Press Release

VirtualUA, Inc. 10th Anniversary Technology Update

DALLAS, TEXAS, March 2, 2022 — VirtualUA, Inc. (VUA) Announces upcoming technology changes right in time for our 10th Anniversary. VUA will transition into our second decade on March 24, 2022. “We couldn’t be more than proud of our accomplishments from the last decade. It’s been ten years since VirtualUA took off to the friendly blue skies. Time sure does fly by. I have learned from many challenges and rewards, and we appreciate them all. Our continued success comes from our three most significant assets, our partners/sponsors, members, and dedicated staff team said Robby Sayles, VirtualUA CEO.  

We recently announced our partnership with ICREWSYSTEMS Software Engineering, LLP for technology development, along with a new domain. During the 2nd quarter of 2022, we will sunset our current Pilot Center known as “ATMOS” and our decade-long domain “virtualua.org.” We are excited to announce that a newer website and Pilot center are being developed. Once we transition to our new website, we will launch a new domain, “flyvua.org, which will soar to cyberspace. We are excited about all these upcoming changes while celebrating our 10th Anniversary. Later this spring, we will have a special 10th Anniversary celebration, where pilots will get together for our annual online event.  

We’re genuinely grateful to all our members, staff, and partners that we have enjoyed working with through the years. We’re proud to celebrate our 10th Anniversary, and we’re confident that VirtualUA, Inc. will continue its successes for many years to come.
