Earth Day should encourage us to reflect on what we are doing to make our planet a more sustainable and livable place. Happy Earth Day from VirtualUA !
Our technology team is currently working on a brand new remake of our website for 2020. They’re working countless hours on it in order to make it the best experience for our pilots. Here are some previews of it. I HAVE to blur it in order to keep the development as secret as possible, however, we love to keep our community in the loop.
We’re sorry to inform our community that the 2020 FSExpo in Las Vegas has been canceled due to COVID-19. Please watch this video to learn more information.
Dear VirtualUA Community,
Join us in celebrating our 8th birthday on Monday, April 27th from 3 PM EST – 8 PM EST. We will be flying from Denver, Colorado (DEN) to Newark, New Jersey (EWR) to celebrate the tremendous success we have had over the past 8 years. We are currently working with our online flying network, VATSIM, to provide our pilots with gate to gate ATC coverage. There are MANY prizes from our sponsors that we will be giving away for various achievements during this event. A HUGE thank you to our sponsors!
Prizes will be given to the best screenshot from the event and the best landing rate. Other prizes will be random. To be eligible for prizes you HAVE to RSVP at our official Birthday Bash link here (Don’t forget to create an account): https://bit.ly/3ec4YVy

YOU ARE ENTITLED TO PIREP COMPENSATION 😉
If anyone is missing PIREPS from the last 2 months of 2019 into March 2020, you can manually add them back by going to https://pireps.virtualua.org/
Just insert your Pilot ID and Password for Skynet. Click Submit New Missing PIREP and fill out the information in the form. Once you submit the form it will be looked over and accepted by a staff member.
You do not need a link to prove this flight, however, we will be monitoring the flights being submitted and if any PIREP is in question we will contact you.
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!
