|The Events Department is pleased to announce the addition of a new Online Event manual published to the Document Library in the Pilot Center. The idea behind this was to help address some of the most common issues/questions we see from our members relating to events, as there is some confusion out there on how events actually work at DVA. Additionally, this allows us to have a centralized place to publish changes to policy/types of events/event procedures. We have some exciting changes coming up later this year (barring any complications) and this will help us communicate about them effectively.
This manual is not very long at only 13 pages, much of which is taken up by screenshots and blank space, so I recommend all our members take time to review it. The manual addresses all areas of events, including the pilot briefings, signups and when they are required/not required, current policies, etc.
If you have questions about events that are not covered in the manual, you can still email us directly at email@example.com.

|The BoG of VATSIM announced today that their new pilot rating system is to go live on August 18, 2020. Additionally, VATSIMs new user experience and website, myVatsim, will be launched before August 18th.
VATSIM new pilot rating system was previous scheduled to go live September 1st, so if you are trying to complete your P1, P2 or P3 rating course in our Flight Academy, you must complete by August 17, 2020. We will no longer be able to issue the old VATSIM P ratings after August 17, 2020.
On August 18th, any Flight Academy course not completed will be removed from the Flight Academy. For those pilots that have previously completed our Flight Academy P1, P2 or P3 courses and awarded the VATSIM ratings, VATSIM will reissue your P 2 or P3 rating to a P1 rating. P1 rating will become P0.
The Flight Academy will continue to honor the ratings and courses that you have successfully completed under the old VATSIM rating system.
|04/09/2019||Flight Academy VFR Advanced On Line Pilot course now available||Scott Clarke|
|Delta Virtual Airlines Flight Academy is pleased to announce the opening of our VFR Advanced On Line Pilot course which qualifies you for the VATSIM P3 rating. This course is available to our members who have completed our On Line Pilot and VFR On Line Pilot courses and received the VATSIM P1 and P2 ratings.
This new course will challenge your VFR knowledge and flying skills. It has new prop aircraft, three check rides, a VFR flight planner and some interesting airports.
Go to the document library and read the Flight Academy VFR Advanced Online Pilot (VFRADV) course manual and if you want a challenge, sign up for the course.

|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!
