|This month marks 18 years of continuous service as Delta Virtual Airlines to our pilots. Can you believe it?
With Microsoft Flight Simulator 2000 gaining in popularity and 2002 on the horizon, our programmer, Luke Kolin, crafted an amazing dynamic web site and place for flight simmers to gather to emulate a real-world airline. Since that time we have seen 13,641 virtual pilots enter our doors. While we focused primarily on content, we are proud of our 988 active pilots today flying an average of 4,700 flights per month and all the contributions they make to our group.
Our goals remain to offer a safe location for likeminded aviation enthusiasts to gather, learn, share and access information to enhance their enjoyment of flight simming while maintaining everything as a free service. Services include learning real-world piloting skills through our flight academy, providing online events on VATSIM for online pilots to fly together, keeping a staged advancement program structure so less experienced pilots can enter using less complicated aircraft and work their way up as they gain experience, and as a VATSIM certified ATO offering courses and ratings.
We are pleased to continue to add to our historical flight database of over 17,000 current and historical flights including codeshares, and some atypical charter type flights to mix it all up. Our 42 volunteers continue to add content and new experiences to the virtual airline as we continue to grow and expand.
A significant recent accomplishment has been Luke and Salem Gbian's efforts to adapt the code for DVA ACARS to work with X-Plane 11 and Lockheed Martin's Prepar3d v4, both 64-bit programs. This represents a massive undertaking that has resulted in keeping DVA on the cutting edge of the flight simulation hobby.
Our Flight Academy which is run by real-world former pilots and a CFI is about to release the VFR Advance Online Pilot course (VATSIM P3). It is our goal to not just cover the bare minimums for a rating but to teach virtual pilots how to actually pilot the aircraft.
Whether you've been here 18 years or 18 hours, thank you for being a part of Delta Virtual Airlines!

|09/04/2018||Delta FLY! Publication to Resume with a New Editor - Shane Reilly||Terry Eshenour|
|After 6 years absence, the publication of Delta FLY! will resume with Shane Reilly as Editor. Initially, we are hoping to publish at least two editions annually with the first one by year's end.
The publication experienced several updates over its history. There are many factors attributable to its sporadic publications mainly it is lack of content. We are excited that Shane volunteered his time and is enthusiastic about taking on a new challenge, it is important that our members provide him with stories, articles and other content relevant to Delta Virtual Airlines and flight sim. There are more than 1,000 active pilots. Each of us has stories to share with our like-minded aviation enthusiasts. Write a few sentences to share with your buddies. Don't be concerned if your latest epistle did make the New York Times bestseller list, we can assist in getting your thoughts in presentable form. Take advantage of this opportunity to get your story published. If you need ideas, refer to prior Delta FLY! Newsletters that can be found in the Pilot Center.
You will learn more about Shane's plans in the forthcoming weeks. Drop him a line at Editor@DeltaVA.org
