Community Relations Update

My name is Nick Smith; I am the Managing Director of Training and Events. First, I want to thank everyone for participating in our Fall Foliage event. It was nice chatting with a few of you on Discord. Second, please continue to post your best screenshot on Discord under our monthly competition channel. You still have a few more days left for October; we will start the voting process on November 1 to pick our winner. We are also excited to announce a few more events, VirtualUA 4th Quarter fireside chat on November 13 at 4 pm CST. We will announce VirtualUA 2022 Flight Plan and have a Q & A session with the staff team, then final our 10th Annual Home for the Holidays Virtual Party and Flying on December 11. The past events this year have been unique. Lastly, we are finishing up some paperwork with VATSIM; as you heard, we are now an Authorized Training Organization and can contact training. If you are interested, please email us at training to set it up for you. That’s all for now; keep rocking those blue skies! See you in the skies!

October Member’s Update

Hello VirtualUA Community,

I am very happy to be back in VirtualUA, Inc. as a pilot and a staff member. A little about me, I am currently a full-time controller on the PilotEdge Network, the Air Traffic Manager of the Denver ARTCC on VATSIM, and the Managing Director of Member and Staff Relations here at VirtualUA. Prior to his appointment, I was previously the Vice President of Member and Staff Relations, Managing Director, and started out as an MSR Representative. 
Just a small reminder to complete your required monthly PIREP!

Also, we have many positions open within our staff team and will be posting some hiring requisitions soon. Please be on the lookout for those if you are interested. Remember, vUA is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization – this is a great opportunity to add some volunteer staff experience to your resume! Please do not hesitate to reach out to me or anyone else if you have questions.


Glad to be here and blue skies to all!
