While we are attempting to correct this with Yahoo, it is necessary for you to change your email address to Gmail, the only dependable free email service.

|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
|02/11/2018||Delta Virtual Airlines FAQ updated||Andrew Vane|
|We are proud to announce that we have updated our FAQ. Hopefully this document will help prospective and new pilots find answers to basic questions about our organization and how we operate.
|10/06/2017||Support For X-Plane and Lockheed Martin Prepar3d Users||Andrew Vane|
|Delta Virtual Airlines includes staged programs based on pilot's skill and experience with advancement accomplished via exams and check rides. Our ACARS program, check ride structure and flight academy are focused around FS2004, FSX and FSX Steam Edition. At the present time, we are working to improve and implement more functionality of these facets of our virtual airline for pilots who use Lockheed Martin Prepar3d and Laminar Research X-Plane.
We welcome all new pilots but want to be clear that presently, your pathway may be limited in the short term if you use X-Plane 10 or use Prepar3d v1-3. Since X-Plane 11 and Prepar3d v4 are newly released simulator platforms, functionality with these platforms within our programs and opportunities to advance through stages are more limited at this time.
Staff are making significant progress with our own ACARS program and in our Flight Academy courses in this regard but the work will still take some time. Check the Water Cooler for future announcements especially with regard to aircraft compatibility.
Thank you all for being a part of our Virtual Airline, now in its 16th year of existence. We continue to see new pilots join us daily and are putting forth our focus and efforts to continue to grow and serve this great hobby that has brought us together. We appreciate your support and involvement.
Stay tuned for more developments announced in the water cooler.
