Community Relations August 2020 Update

Hello Everyone, 

Thanks to those who participated in the Fun N Sun event! We had a great time and hope you did too. If you haven’t had a chance, please fill out our event feedback form: https://forms.gle/gCqCRnvVwonDGwKaA. We’re super excited to announce our next event, which is scheduled on October 24, 2020. Please save the date. We are in the early planning phases however we want to give everyone some preliminary information, so you can add it to your calendar. This event will be a “Fall” themed event. It will most likely be somewhere up North. Stay tuned as we will be soliciting your feedback soon. Speaking of events, we are still looking for an Event Manager. If you are interested or know someone, please share our Staff application link: https://bit.ly/vuastaffapp

Back in July we kicked off our Group Flight Program. Pilots are now able to communicate with each other on our Discord Server and coordinate group flights.  We are thrilled that this has been a success, and we will continue to encourage our community to participate in group flying. We want to Congratulate our July Winners for our Monthly Screenshot competition. The August competition has kicked off, so head over to our Discord Server and post your favorite screenshot.  If you win we will send you some award points and post your screenshot on our social media platforms to recognize your talent. Happy Screenshotting! Finally, we’re happy to announce our monthly Feedback Program. During the 2nd quarter Fireside Chat, we announced that we would launch this program starting in September. Watch your emails for more information in the coming weeks. We love to hear your suggestions and feedback as we only continue to develop for you — our members! Our staff team works extremely hard behind the scenes for our community and we hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Fun N Sun Event Update | July 22nd

Hey Pilots! 

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 not connect 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!
