Our Tour Centre is the newest part of our airline operations. It provides pilots the opportunity to fly journeys that are made up of multiple legs, giving them a more felxible flying experience.
Perfect for those pilots who dream of flying to far off places, but can only fly for 1-2 hrs at a time. It's perfect for those who just want to try something different and fly to places they've never been to before.
Current tours available include:
Our Cargo Ops module gives those pilots who love the TNTs and FedEx's of this world, their chance to make it as a Cargo Pilot. The module creates scheduled freight flights for you to perform for one of a number of our cargo airlines.
The scheduling provides a multitude of cargo types and schedules against different airlines. You can also set your flight sim to the scheduled departure time to see if you can hit your scheduled arrival time.
If you fancy that more realistic airline pilot feeling, our Charter Ops centre is perfect. The Charter Centre Module creates a randomized series of charter flights using our various airlines. It provides pilots with a set route, with set departure and arrival times.
Test yourself against these schedules and see if you have what it takes to operate just like a charter pilot would.
Our Pilot Academy is still in its infancy, but our aim is to make this a great resource for new and experienced pilots to learn more about basic flight and more advanced techniques.
We already have tutorials on SIDs, STARS and ILS landing approach with more to come.
Our Pilot Events are an excellent facility for both staff and pilots to create and add their own events. Whether you want to do a group flight, a training flight or just simply an impromptu invite to some friends.
The Events Centre allows you to create, advertise and manage sign ups for events and it will even email pilots to remind them of your event.

Just to let you know, I'm still alive and well, although work and other committments mean I have very little spare time these days. However, the airline will continue to run as long as people are logging in and flying. I will continue to support the tools and website used to provide a great platform to fly on.
I have a couple of quick notices just to share with you:
Firstly, it seems from a recent Pirep that "positive landings" are not allowed. I'm not sure where this comes from but it's not really a critical factor to determine landing success. In real-world aviation a "positive landing" is used to describe a firm landing, not a positive number of feet per min. It is entirely possible to have a positive rate of landing in feet per minute but it's actually pretty rare. It is based on a number of factors such as airport elevation, weather and aircraft. At most municipal and international airports though, a normal -fpm landing should be perfectly achievable. I would really only expect to see it on runways that have a large incline because they are short, or have dangerous approaches such as Lukla.
Secondly, I want to remind you all that I expect members to be courteous towards each both over chat and through text comments. I will absolutely not accept abusive behaviour or swearing at any other member. You may not always like your pirep being rejected and you may want to dispute the reasons. I still expect you to conduct that dispute without resorting to poor behaviour.
Lastly, there is a new version of PHPVMS being developed, it's slow but it will hopefully be more flexible, more up-to-date, better coded and more secure. Once it's at a release stage that is equivalent to what we have or better, I will begin a project to update our old system. I suspect it won't be soon as the development is still very much in testing stages.
Thanks for your continued support.
