|10/25/2014||DNS Maintenance in Progress||Luke Kolin|
|DNS and system backup for Global Virtual Airline Group properties is handled by Amazon Web Services, the world's largest public cloud computing provider. AWS provides redundant global services at a very economic rate for a variety of groups beyond GVA, including Netflix and weather.com.
To facilitate prompter system updates and maintain continuity of service, we are transferring our AWS services from a personal account to a GVA-funded AWS account. No data should be changing as part of this process beyond the master DNS services, and service interruptions are not expected.

|The DVA flight schedule is updated quarterly. The most recent update valid for the next 18 months occurred October 23, 2014. The update includes true codeshare flights.

|10/07/2014||New Accomplishments Announced||Andrew Vane|
|Please be informed we have added 4 new accomplishments. Some of these accomplishments will require advancement to higher/lower stages or requesting additional ratings. For information on this process, please see the Pilots Manual. Past flights logged in these aircraft will count towards the accomplishment. It is recommended pilots fly these aircraft at least 200 miles to experience them although this is not a firm requirement. Also, not all aircraft are included in the DVA fleet installer page so pilots may need to obtain them from other free download web sites such as flightsim.com or avsim.net. A brief description of each new accomplishment follows:
Piston Prop Professional: Complete and receive approval for PIREP’s for at least one flight in all of the following aircraft: Constellation, DC-3, DC-4, DC-6, DC-7, L-10, L-100.

Commuter Conquest: Complete and receive approval for PIREP’s for at least one flight in all of the following aircraft: ATR-72, Avro RJ-85, B1900, BAE-146, CRJ-1000, CRJ-200, CRJ-700, CRJ-900, DHC-8, EMB-120, ERJ-135, ERJ-145, ERJ-170, ERJ-175, ERJ-190, ERJ-195, F70, JS41, S2000, S340.

|09/30/2014||Boeing 777 Aircraft Operations Manual Updated||Andrew Vane|
|The latest edition of the Boeing 777 Aircraft Operations Manual was recently updated in the Document Library. Pilots can access the updated manual via the Pilot Center. The new 777 AOM is oriented around the Boeing 777-200LR version since this is most widely flown by DVA pilots. In addition, the 777 related examination questions have been updated accordingly.|
|09/17/2014||Delta Virtual Airlines Announces Operations Department Personnel Changes||Terry Eshenour|
|Sterling Widmer leader of Operations for more than 5 years resigned because of real world time constraints. Sterling's efforts over the years built a strong organization serving its pilots with excellence. As a member of senior staff, we will miss his endless contributions and calm reasoning when addressing issues. Sterling will continue as a Senior Captain flying as time permits.
Andrew Vane an 8 year veteran and staff member is Sterling's replacement. Drew is an accomplished aviator, a student of the Flight Academy with demonstrated leadership skills. For the past two years he has worked on revising our manuals. A huge work assignment that he pursues with great patience in pursuit of refining our written materials.
Please join in congratulating these gentlemen on a job well done and offering support for new challenges that they face.
