  1. vAAirlines is proud to announce that the work that began in the fall of 2019 has been completed and the official opening of our airline has now taken place! vAAirlines was an idea that stemmed from a member of the real world American Airlines Group, Inc. (AAG) who wanted to create the most realistic and immersive virtual experience modeled after the real world American Airlines. vAAirlines recognizes that there are other options when choosing an American Virtual Airline and knew that key differences would need to be highlighted to ensure that the market was provided with a truly unique experience. This recognition was the inspiration to create our three main principles which include freedom, experience, and progression. But what do those mean to us? Freedom - It should be your choice to fly online with any network and the real world flight numbers or offline with or without your own AI packages, so it is. While we encourage our pilots to utilize the VATSIM network as much as possible to maximize the realism in their flight experience, we recognize that sometimes you are just not able to log on to the network and should not be punished for that. Experience - We believe in putting out our stats, policies, and your accomplishments on display. Our responsive team means you get answers, not ticket numbers. Your experience should start right when you arrive on our home page and not once you sign up. We let you see the kind of organization you are joining before even hitting the "Sign Up" button and make sure that you have everything that you need once logged in to succeed. Progression - No "pay to play" of any kind. Our ranks are earned through both experience and knowledge with help from our revolutionary Check Airman program. We want you to progress through the ranks while learning about the aircraft and airspace that you are flying in and not by paying for a premium membership or worrying about website ads, donation buttons, or "stock options". The world is waiting. Are you ready to take flight into an extremely rewarding and immersive experience with us? Check out our "About Us" page or simply visit us at www.aalva.org to see just what we are about. Welcome to vAAirlines, An American Virtual Airline. Thank you for your time, and I look forward to flying with you all very soon! -TH
  2. Last week vAAirlines, an American Virtual Airline, made it's official announcement of operations to the public! The application window for those interested in participating in a soft release beta test is set to close in less than two hours. The following is the original text from the announcement of operations which details our vision for the virtual airline as well as how to get involved. Window closes at 1900 Central Standard Time, so there isn't much time left! ----Begin MEMO Dated 16 March 2020---- vAAirlines is pleased to announce that after months of planning, testing, and building, we are able to publicly announce our project and share with you the projected timelines for release to the public. vAAirlines is an American Virtual Airline based in Fort Worth, Texas which was created with a vision to build a unique and fresh take on the world’s largest airline. This vision encomp[Mod - Happy Thoughts]es our founding core principles which includes the freedom to fly on various networks with real world callsigns (or offline with/without AI), a strong user interface both on the public end of our website as well as for our pilots, realistic fleet availability, responsive staff members, no “pay to play” of any kind, and progression based upon experience and knowledge, not just hours flown. These principles are the foundation upon which our core values were established to ensure the very best experience for our members as we strive to create an amazing community of aviation enthusiasts. vAAirlines was founded by members and consultants who operate for the real-world American Airlines Group (AAG) to ensure we deliver on these core values and overall objectives. vAAirlines is currently eyeing a mid-summer 2020 release with an official release date to follow in a later memo. Shortly, vAAirlines will begin a soft release as a form of beta testing to ensure all aspects of the website, servers, and external applications are working correctly to provide a smooth transition to an official public launch. If you are interested in participating in the soft release, please send the following information, in an organized manner, to ceo[at]aalva[at]org for consideration; Full Name Email Address Date of Birth (to confirm you meet all COPPA laws) Any real-world aviation experience Current virtual airline involvement and history of involvement including any past/current staff positions held in a virtual airline or other Virtual Organization (VATSIM, IVAO, etc) Computer specs including simulator used and any major addons (mainly aircraft and weather software) Short description of why you would like to be a part of the new vAAirlines Positive or negative indication of whether or not you would be interested in any volunteer staff position should one present itself as available to you All emails must be received before 23 March 2020 at 1900 Central Standard Time to be considered, with more information to be sent out by 29 March 2020 for those selected. We are very excited about taking these initial steps to bring the project to its full strength in the very near future and look forward to bringing on experienced individuals to help [Mod - Happy Thoughts]ist with the final touches of our new organization. Thank you for your time, and welcome to the initial look at vAAirlines, an American Virtual Airline.
