September 2020 Operations Update

Hello VirtualUA Pilots,

From your Operations Department, here is our September update. 
As you can see here are our flight statistics for the month. KSFO is leading the way with KORD in a close second. With a few more days left in the month, let’s see who the top hub of the month is.

In case you have not seen, we have two new Regional Hub Directors. For the Hubs: KSFO, KDEN, KIAH, and KLAX is William Beaumont and for KEWR, KORD, KIAD, and PGUM is Eddie Goff. They are there to ensure all pilots are taken care of and to make your experience at VirtualUA a fun one.  I know we have a bunch of new pilots who have joined and we want to welcome you to the VirtualUA family. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to us so we can start you off on the right  path. 

Also, We have been reviewing and revising the Pilot Handbook and once released there are a few items to note. In the handbook, there are certain criteria for PIREPS to be accepted as a completed flight. In the past, and due to changes in technology and staff, we have been lenient with the PIREPS.  Once the Pilot Handbook has been released The Operations Department will be reviewing and providing feedback based on the information received. If you find you are having troubles in certain areas that are the minimum standard, please reach out to our training department who can help.

As always without you as the pilots we would not be the success we are today. Thank you and safe flights!

Respectfully,
Chris Porras

July Operations Review

The VirtualUA Operations Department has been hard at work to make the flying experience more enjoyable for each pilot. We just concluded our major summer event, Fun in the Sun where pilots started their flights at Princess Juliana Airport, St. Maarten (TNCM), flew a short hop to San Juan, Puerto Rico (TJSJ), and concluded their flights at Kingston, Jamaica (MJKP). We had a good showing with 10 pilots participating in the event, which allowed everyone to enjoy an element of comradery between VirtualUA Staff and Pilots. We in the Operations staff look forward to our upcoming events where we can work to provide a more realistic experience for everyone.

On the flight operations side, we have 10 new pilots joining us giving VirtualUA 178 total pilots.. We would like to extend a Welcome to VIrtualUA to everyone who joined during the month of July and wish everyone clear blue skies. 

For the month of July. We have flown over 413 flights for the month of July. Of course we have a new hub accelerating ahead of the pack. KORD is leading the way followed by KIAD hub then KSFO hub as the top 3. Below is a snapshot of the flights for the month of July:

Looking toward the future, your Operations Department will be working behind the scenes to make each pilot’s experience more enjoyable. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to Executive VP Operations Derek George or Hub Operations Regional Director Chris Porras for any questions, concerns, or even suggestions on how we can make our virtual airline maintain the top tier status we have garnered.
