VirtualUA has been in operation for almost a decade. We have created a platform where we have adapted to the changing flight sim world. We’ve branched out and engaged with our pilots both virtually and with local events. Most recently, we participated in Flight Sim Expo and before that Flight Sim Con. We continue to develop pilot-friendly technology platforms and continually take feedback and implement it in our policies and technology. What sets us apart from the rest and what is most important is our people. Without our member base and staff team, we wouldn’t be where we are today. Thank you to those of you that have continued to support us through the years. We couldn’t do it without you.
VirtualUA is hard at work preparing our new training program. This new program will outline the new VATSIM training program which is realigned with the current FAA structure of pilot ratings. With hopes of releasing in early fall, be on the lookout for announcements in the near future. In the mean time, the current program is still open for P1 applicants at training.virtualua.org so sign up today!
Vice President, Training
We’re so excited to see that Microsoft has officially announced the release of the much awaited Flight Simulator 2020. The release date is August 18th. We are so excited that Microsoft is back to creating content for the community however, we will always continue to support existing platforms like X-Plane, P3D, FSX with our ACARS as long as members continue to use those platforms. We are so excited to see what this new simulator brings in hopes it rejuvenates the flight simulation industry and attracts new people to our beloved hobby.
I’m sure many of you are wanting to know what this means for our community. We don’t expect there to be any sort of ACARS system that will work for MSFS out of the gate. Since it is a new development we are creating a game plan to figure out a way for pilots to submit their flight reports with VirtualUA. Once we have more information we will send out another communication with information.
Like always thank you so much for being apart of our community. We couldn’t do what we do without your dedication and commitment.
