  1. My issue with CTP is their poor communication with the community. To qualify that, I find the communication around the westbound events is always better than the eastbound events. That's my perception, anyhoo. Why does CTP go to the effort of building a website if most of the meaningful communication/information will be on this forum or Discord or Facebook? At the very least, anything posted on any of those other media should be simultaneously available on the CTP website. I follow the event on Twitter but I've been spending less time there than in the past. Just checked... Twelve ho

  7. vUAL has withdrawn its support for this event. We have been in constant e-mail contact with the event organizers for months and learned today about the sign-up site being up and running, and that our requested destination (YMML) was not part of the event. An e-mail went to VATPAC Events today, asking how we slipped through the cracks. We also removed Sydney RealOPS from our event schedule.
  8. From https://www.vatsim.net/news/restructuring-pilot-rating-system: "VATSIM’ [sic] Authorized Training Organizations are already working hard to implement these new changes in their training programme,..." VATSTAR's response, March 5: "Starting April 1st, you will not be able to book training for P3 or P5. We will keep the material online but there will not be any Written Exams or Checkrides, and we won't be providing certifications for them any longer. P1, P2, and P4 we will continue, as always. We are not closing our organization; But with the changes VATSIM is making, traini
  9. Virtual United Airlines is working with VATNZ and VATPAC on a Cross the Ditch event for our quarterly VATSIM Partner event. We've been back and forth on dates and times. The working date, from VATNZ, is June 21 (June 20 for North America/Europe) and I'm guesstimating it will start up around 1800Z/June 20, subject to confirmation from VATNZ/VATPAC. Virtual United Airlines always leaves the door open for any VATSIM pilot to join in our events and since this is also a VATNZ/VATPAC event, consider yourself invited.

  10. We plan to be there... https://forums.vatsim.net/viewtopic.php?f=17&t=81601
  11. To celebrate our Star Alliance partner TAP's 75th (diamond) anniversary, Virtual United Airlines http://www.virtualunitedairlines.org will fly out of Lisbon (LPPT) at 1800z March 14 (01:00 pm EST) and make our way to the Funchal Airport (LPMA), about two hours away. This piggybacks on a tentative vACC Portugal event that day, but we'll let them fill you in on that. Naturally, any VATSIM pilot is welcome to join vUAL for this event. It's a windy, treacherous approach - we need to be on our toes - pilots may set their sim to daylight. (Add a note to your VATSIM flight plan's comments if
  12. First of all, please note that 0300z/Dec. 15 is 9:00pm CST/Dec. 14 in North America. Virtual United Airlines (http://www.virtualunitedairlines.org) invites all online flyers to join us in our quarterly VATSIM Event: Time on Target -Chicago O’Hare. The goal is to arrive as close as possible to 10:00 p.m. EST on Saturday, December 14, 2019 (0300z, Dec. 15). Your holding time may vary, depending on the number of flights at KORD, so plan your fuel accordingly. If you are using the stock FSX/P3D KORD scenery, you need to update your AFCAD because the airport has undergone significant c
  13. Virtual United Airlines is holding its September Fly-in on Sept. 14, between Miami and Montego Bay. United Airlines flights will start up at Concourse J gates. Wheels up is 2330z.

The recommended route is EONNS2 EONNS A509 URSUS UL780 TASNO UM221 NIBEO UL341 ENARI LENAR5 at odd-numbered flight levels.

  14. Super news! Thanks to the entire team for resolving this vexing issue. Cheers.
  15. I'm not having any issues with anything shutting down; VATSpy hangs when it tries to download data from vatsim-data.hardem.net but that stops when I check "Disable downloading from vatsim-data.hardem.net" in VATSpy's error message.
