Air Contractors Virtual l News Updates



There have been a lot of developments at Air Contractors Virtual recently including a new promotional video and reaching our 100th pilot, so below is all the latest news and developments for the VA:

100th Pilot Joins
Air Contractors Virtual has reached a major milestone, we have now accepted our 100th pilot to the VA, and once again we would like to welcome Stefan Fox to Air Contractors Virtual.

Air Contractors Virtual is based on our real-world counterpart Air Contractors, we are one of only a few VAs in the world to be fully recognised by our real-world counterpart. We first began operations on 17th December 2006 as a cargo VA initially targetting the Irish market with features unrivalled by any other Irish VA, we have since grown into one of the largest European Cargo Virtual Airlines. In our last 9 months of operation we have continued to make the experience as a pilot with Air Contractors Virtual all the more enjoyable, and we will continue to improve the service we offer our pilots by listening to our pilots and adapting to their needs because here at Air Contractors Virtual, we recognise that the pilot is the backbone of the VA and they are always listened to.

New Promotional Video

We are also very pleased to be able to launch our new promotional video here on VATSIM which was produced to coincide with the VA reaching 100 pilots. The video can also be viewed at one of 3 websites below:

New Teamspeak Server
Air Contractors Virtual also recently launched our new 24/7 teamspeak, adding to the many way by which our members can communicate with each other. While this teamspeak is primarily for Air Contractors Virtual members, we would always welcome prospective members to come on too to have a chat with staff or our pilots about joining Air Contractors virtual.
