Flatline Medevac Services - Major Update

We at Flatline Virtual are excited to announce finally the release of the new Standard Operating Procedures. These make understanding procedures for the airline much simpler and more enjoyable for all members of the VA. New members should find learning how to fly and log flights much easier without much confusion.


In conjunction with the release of the SOP, the Call Generator has received a major update. All aircraft in the fleet have their own profiles you can select when starting a flight so you can go the 1000nm in a LJ45, followed by going no further than 450nm in the C208. You can tune the ranges for each aircraft individually as well. There are more events that occur in flight such as patient status changes and even the patient falling into cardiac arrest. Voice lines are recorded with human voice actors rather than a TTS engine. Patient gender and weight have been added for more dynamics to the flight. Organ transport callouts have been added to the IFTs. Finally, you no longer need to install the program to an exact location. It can even be run from its folder in downloads if you wish.


Special Use aircraft now have a procedure so our pilots can get up in the air with the Dash 8 and the Boeings. They are booked by the pilot through staff members and do not use the call generator.


There are also many changes to the VA with this release. The following is the list of changes:




Flatline Aeromedical Services has been changed to Flatline Medevac Services (matches the logo)


Minimum age increased to 15

Flatline Virtual is continuing to work toward a custom ACARS program for the VA. This can be expected in the future. We are also working toward vSOA eligibility so training videos and programs will be coming out soon as well.
