VirtualUA Management Team

Thank you for an amazing celebration!

Good Afternoon,

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.

Again, thank you for your dedication!

VirtualUA.org is back!

Members of the flight sim community,

VirtualUA (virtualua.org) would like to fill you in on what has been going on at our terminal over the past few weeks. As you all know, VirtualUA, an AAVirtual merged and became AAV Group. After extensive discussion, a mutual decision, in the best interest of both organizations, has been decided. We are formally announcing that we are unmerging from AAVirtual, and both AAVirtual and VirtualUA will be going their separate ways and resuming their independent operations. We are now officially returning to our old name Virtual United Social Club Incorporated, and returning to our former domain of virtualua.org. We understand that this has caused several hiccups with the website; however, our technology team is working tirelessly to restore the site and allow our members to resume operations as usual, and we would like to thank everyone for their patience. At the same time, we get back on our feet. 

On more exciting news, VirtualUA celebrated its 8th birthday on March 24th! It feels hard to believe we have been in the community for 8 years. Still, we are as excited as we were in our first year to provide the best professional and realistic simulation experience as possible. 

Additionally, Flightsim Expo is rapidly approaching! We hope to see as many members of VirtualUA and the flight sim community as possible! It will be an excellent opportunity to meet others and to continue to strengthen the flight sim community.

Lastly, Virtual UA would like to extend its dearest sympathies to all members of the community affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. We want to urge our community to continue to follow CDC guidelines. If you are at home, please take care of yourselves and your families. It would also be a great time to log some hours in the cockpit!

We look forward to seeing you in the skies!
