The summer season is among us, and it is about that time to take off the pool cover, roll out the grill, and begin planning family vacations. Here at VirtualUA, Inc., we are excited to welcome warmer weather and hope you’re just as thrilled as we are at VirtualUA.
This summer will mark our eighth summer serving the flight simulation community. Eight years ago, VirtualUA started our development with three staff members. Today, VirtualUA has grown to serve thousands of dedicated flight simulation pilots, striving to enjoy an awesome community each day. VirtualUA has seen remarkable growth in our community, and it is our appreciation of our loyal pilots such as you who have helped make VirtualUA one of the best and fastest-growing flight simulation community in the world.
At VirtualUA, Inc., we know you have the option to choose your virtual airline, and that is why we are very thankful you have chosen us. We work hard each day to bring you the best experience, and we will continue to do so. Thank you, and blue skies.
All the Best,

From all of the staff team here at VirtualUA we wanted to
extend our greatest thank you for celebrating with us on Monday for our 8th
Annual Birthday Bash. As you know the last 12 months has been turbulent for our
organization however with the amount of people whom participated it gives us
hope that the next 12 months will be better. It gave us the inspiration and
hope that people are still interested and involved.
We’re currently investing in new technology for the
organization. We’ve already made some enhancements to our current website and created
the option for pilots to fly and track their flights using SmartCARS. There is
a new website on the way that should go into Alpha in the next few weeks too! This
is just the beginning of positive changes that you’ll see coming from us.
Without a doubt we’re so genuinely thankful for you and your
membership to VirtualUA. If you were one of the pilots who did fly part of the Birthday
Bash event, we’ve put together a short survey to gather some of your feedback. You
can fill it out by clicking here. Also, if you were one of the pilots who
participated and won a prize, we will be reaching out to you shortly.
We would like to express our gratitude to our amazing sponsors for our Birthday Bash event that happened on Monday evening. We had a great turnout with over 30 pilots who turned up and amazing screenshots that were captured. We are currently working on drawing the prizes for our pilots and will be in contact with pilots PRIVATELY.
We would like to thank:
