Today I am pleased to announce that the FlightSim Community Survey by Navigraph for 2022 is now online. This year's FlightSim Community Survey is a bit different, in terms of virtual organizations participating, and I am pleased to announce that this year Delta Virtual Airlines have partnered with Navigraph to provide and contribute questions for the 2022 FlightSim Community Survey.
What is the the FlightSim Community Survey by Navigraph?
Nov 18 to Nov 28 Navigraph is conducting a FlightSim Community Survey together with several major addon developers and organizations within the flight simulation community. The survey, the largest of its kind, aims to gauge the prevailing flight simulation trends and users’ requests for future development.
Like previous years, this survey has an emphasis on the major flight simulators such as Microsoft Flight Simulator, Lockheed Martin Prepar3D and Laminar Research X-Plane, but the survey also includes questions about add-ons, tools, and flight simulation consoles.
This is the largest and most comprehensive flight simulation survey in the world! By participating you are influencing the future of the FlightSim community.
The results from the survey will be presented on https://blog.navigraph.com Mid-December, but also by the partners participating to this survey (to the extent they wish to do so).

We want to inform you all that there have been some staffing changes within Delta Virtual Airlines staffing this week. Kevin Lundy was was serving as Assistant Director of Operations and Chief Pilot of the 727-100 Program advised he had to step down due to real world commitments outside DVA.

We are sad to see Kevin step down but we totally understand the commitments outside DVA and we want to wish Kevin the best in his future endeavors.
We want to inform you of another staffing change Alan Cluff advised earlier this week that he has to step down as Vice President of Training due to personal reasons and commitments outside Delta Virtual Airlines. Alan as many of you know served on DVA staff years ago in operations as an Assistant Director of Ops, and was instrumental in excelling Delta Virtual Airlines mission and vision forward in the various duties and roles at DVA. We are sad to see Alan step down but we totally understand the reasons and commitments outside DVA and we want to wish Alan the best in his future endeavors.
We want to inform you of another staffing change. Andrew Vane had to step down from Chief Pilot of the L-1011 equipment program. Andrew advised due to work and commitments outside DVA, he announced he needed to step down. Andrew as many of you all know was very instrumental in moving the DVA mission and vision forward years ago when he served as Vice President Of Operations years ago and later as Chief Pilot of the L-1011 equipment program.
While it is difficult to see our friends and colleagues step down from their roles as we have grown to form a close bond and friendship over the years with these individuals. Needless to say, Andrew, Alan, and Kevin will be missed. We want to thank each of these gentlemen and wish them the best in their future endeavors.
