Sun N Fun is just around the corner; let’s update you on some things regarding the event. You MUST RSVP for this event since the gate space is limited. If you plan on attending Please, use this link to RSVP—https://bit.ly/funsun20 . Due to the size of the airports that we will be flying in and out of. We have put special procedures in place to prevent holding and delays. Your Route will be provided by our operations team approximately 1 hour before the first departure. Before the event begins, Pilots will be assigned a pushback slot spaced 15 minutes apart to provide additional sequencing. Missed pushback slots will move you to the back of the departure time table. Your callsign will be provided to you by the operations team. It is mandatory that you use this callsign for all the legs of the event. To prevent gate congestion at these smaller airports, you may notconnect to VATSIM more than 25 minutes before your scheduled pushback slot to relieve congestion. We recommend to plan your fuel accordingly and bring some extra fuel onboard because missed approaches are expected at these airports! When choosing aircraft, please keep in mind the environment!
From all of us at VirtualUA, We hope to see you there!

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:
