|While many if not most of us started in Stage 1, very few have chosen to stick around, moving onward and upward into the larger jets with FMC's that can fly across the ponds to places far and wide. DVA Operations is pleased to announce a new series of accomplishments focused specifically towards those flying our fine Stage 1 aircraft. We've created Century Club, Double Century Club and so forth for both Stage 1 primary aircraft programs. Secondary ratings in the stage 1 programs won’t count towards these accomplishments.
Stage 1 Turboprop Century Club: ATR-72, B1900, DHC-8-100, DHC-8-Q400, EMB-120, S340
Stage 1 Jet Century Club: BAE-146, CRJ-1000, CRJ-200, CRJ-700, CRJ-900, DO-328, ERJ-135, ERJ-145, F100, F70
For those of you flying these wonderful aircraft which are the bread and butter of DVA, we salute you with these new achievements. Pilots do not need to be in the Stage 1 programs to obtain these accomplishments, they merely need to be rated and fly the aircraft indicated above to count .
We hope you'll enjoy striving for these new accomplishments here at DVA!

|We are pleased to announce the release of the latest version of the Pilot's Manual. The manual has been updated to clarify guidelines regarding flight diversions, pilot conduct, staff responsibilities, updated aircraft stages, and criteria for flight report approval. We encourage pilots to refer to the Pilot's Manual as a reference for how DVA operates. As with all our publications, we are always open to and appreciate constructive feedback and recommendations.

|DVA Senior Staff announces the addition of three new channels to the water cooler. These channels are for sharing information and troubleshooting issues with Steam FSX SE, PREPAR3D by Lockheed Martin, and X-Plane. DVA has always been a place where pilots have helped each other with issues and provided support to one another. We greatly value our pilot's participation and hope these new channels will provide easy to locate channels for these specific flight simulation software programs.|

|The Boeing 737-800 AOM has been updated and released. The new version corrects some inconsistencies within the tutorial and checklist sections and also corrects some of the emergency procedures.
Pilots can obtain the newly updated manual in the Document Library via the Pilot Center. As always, we appreciate feedback and comments on the manuals in our efforts to improve them. Feel free to email any comments to email@example.com.
|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.
