Airline Operations


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:

Around the UK in seven legs

Island hop around the Carribean

Visit the Nordic Fjords and Mountains

Visit the highlands and the lowlands on the Scotland Tour!

Around the World Tour

Malta and the Med

Switzerland Tour

DownUnder Jet Tour

The Flybe Route Tour

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.

FSUIPC4

What is it and what does it do?

FSUIPC4 is one of the most important bits of addon that you need as a pilot for us. It is a small programme that creates a connection between your flight simulator software and the various flight trackers that are used by virtual airlines.

If you try to launch a flight tracker without FSUIPC4, you are likely to get an error saying that your tracker cannot make a connection to your flight simulator. It is one of the most common errors received when new pilots join us.

When you sign up for us as a pilot and log in, you are directed to the "Pilot Centre". In the pilot centre is a downloads section that provides a link to the website that houses the FSUIPC4 software. The reason we do not hold the software on our site is so that we always have access to the latest version. Once you download FSUIPC4 there are some simple, but important steps to follow so that it installs correctly.

Installation Steps

  • Note: Before you download FSUIPC4, it is advisable to temporarily turn off your antivirus, firewall programmes. Failure to do so can lead to the download file being rejected and other installation problems.
  • Download FSUIPC4 from the link in your Pilot Centre.
  • Create a folder in your documents or flight sim folder called FSUIPC4.
  • Find your downloaded zip file and extract all of the files into the FSUIPC4 you created.
  • Inside the FSUIPC4 folder, locate and run the "install.exe" file.
  • Once the installation is complete, you will get a box giving you options to register. Just click on the "not now" button.
  • That is the basic installation complete. You now need to allow your flight sim to install it as an addon inside the simulator.
  • Open up your FSX or other simulator and go to set up your aircraft at an airport.
  • At some point (usually when you try to select an aircraft) you should get a popup box asking if you would like to install FSUIPC4 as an addon. Click yes to this.
  • Once you are in-game and at an airport, click on the "addons" menu at the top of your game window. You should now see a menu for FSUIPC4. If you do, that's it, you're good to go.
  • If you don't see FSUIPC4 listed as an addon, firstly try restarting your simulator again. Failing that, run the installer again.
