|01/15/2015||Historical Airlines Added||Andrew Vane|
|A rich part of Delta Air Lines’ history is the merger and acquisition of other airlines. We have already added many historical fights into the NW and DVH schedule database (with more to come) which were real world routes flown in the past. To grow our schedule database, you will notice that in the near future, additional historical airlines and their flights will be added. These will include Northeast Airlines Historical (acquired by Delta in 1972), Western Airlines Historical (1987), and Pan American Airways Historical (1991). You should see these airlines show up and the schedule for each slowly begin to populate with flights. Flights will be able to be accessed via Find-A-Flight and Browse Schedule in the Pilot Center. They will show up as NEH, WAH and PAH respectively.
As with all flights in the database, a pilot may log a flight for any route provided he uses an aircraft that he is rated in and the aircraft can reach the destination with legal fuel reserves. The aircraft profiles section of the Pilot Center provides the range of aircraft in our fleet.
We hope you enjoy these new additions to DVA.

|Please be informed we have modified the DHC-8 in our hangar into Q100 and Q400 versions. All pilots who already have the DHC-8 rating now have the rating for the Q100. To obtain the rating for the DHC-8-Q400, go to the Pilot Center and Request Additional Ratings in any Stage 1 through 3 program.|
|12/12/2014||Flights added to the Northwest Historical Flight Schedule Database||Andrew Vane|
|We’ve added a bunch of additional Northwest historical fights to/from Memphis from a NW 2001 timetable I acquired with Jim Daigneau’s assistance. Most are real flights Northwest flew using A319, A320, DC-9-40, DC-9-50 and Boeing 727-200 aircraft. You can find them via the Pilot Center. More to be added in the future.|
|12/08/2014||Boeing 377 added to the DVA fleet!||Andrew Vane|
|As if two new propliners added in one week wasn’t enough, we are adding a third which also happens to be the third double decker aircraft available in the DVA hangar: The Boeing 377. Both Northwest Airlines and Pan Am flew this double-bubble propliner in the post WWII era. Originally developed in 1947 and capable of carrying 100 passengers over 4100 miles, the B377 is added as part of DVA’s DC6 program.
California Classic Propliners (Calclassic.com) has an FS2002/FS2004 model. We hope you’ll enjoy this new addition to the fleet!
|12/05/2014||DC-7C and L1049 Super Constellation added to the Fleet||Andrew Vane|
|Two fierce competitors in the history of Delta’s fleet development were Lockheed and Douglas Commercial. These two manufacturers competed against each other to re-engineer their aircraft to fly longer ranges and carry more passengers. We have added to our fleet the culmination of the DC-7 and Constellation battle: L1049 Super Constellation and the Douglas DC-7C Seven Seas. Both have over 4,000nm ranges. Ratings for these aircraft can be obtained via the DC-6 program.
We will be adding more historic routes in the future that feature these aircraft of yesteryear. Models can be obtained from Calclassic Propliners (www.calclassic.com) among other flight sim web sites.
Much thanks to DVA pilot Jim Daigneau and to Mr. Tom Gibson of Calclassic Propliners for their assistance.
