Be a part of the world’s most comprehensive flight simulation survey. Your input directly influences the community’s future! Survey results will be published on flightsimsurvey.com on blog.navigraph.com, and through survey partners, in December 2023.
The survey closes on Monday, 27th November.GDPR Compliance
The survey is anonymous, and no personally identifiable information is collected. Results will be presented in aggregated form only. Thank you for your participation and support. Together, we can make a significant impact on the future of flight simulation.

Being a fellow MD-11 driver (and past CP of the program) I understand, with the newly released TFDi MD-11, your interest in obtaining the rating. Since the add on is not for public sale as of yet, we don’t have the ability to integrate the add-on for check-ride use at this time. Once the airframe is released for public sale and we are able to view better real time flight dynamics, we will certainly do our best to make it check-ride ready ASAP. More to follow.
Thanks for your understanding and patience,

|It’s a Christmas Emergency of epic proportions. Santa is in trouble, and it’s up to us to help him save everyone on the nice list from a horrible holiday season.

|10/13/2023||Introducing the DVA Virtual Medallion Club!||Chris Frasure|
|Delta Virtual Airlines is happy to introduce a brand new reward program for our pilots; The Virtual Medallion Club! This new program will mimic real world Delta Airline operations and will reward pilots based on their flying statistics. The program is dynamic and reward levels will change year to year based on the activity of a pilot as compared to their peers over the same calendar year. So, while one year you might earn the top tier with a certain number of flight hours or legs, the next you might fall to a lower tier as you are continually compared to the statistics of other pilots. Rewards come in the form of badges that will appear next to your name in various places on the website, including the water cooler and ACARS.
Current reward levels are as follows:
Diamond - 95th percentile
Platinum - 90th percentile
Gold - 80th percentile
Silver - 60th percentile
So, as you can see by the percentile rankings, in order for you to earn the top honor (Diamond status) you would need to have flown a number of legs and/or hours more or equal to 95% of all pilots. Thus, the more you fly, the better the upgrade you can earn!
Delta’s real world medallion schedule rolls on a 13 month calendar system and it can be a bit confusing. This means that your status for the current year was earned from the previous year’s flights. For example, if in 2022 you flew enough flights (from January 1 to December 31) to earn Diamond status, you would maintain this status from the date you qualified through the end of January 2024. So, in order for us to implement this reward system at DVA, your default first award level will be based on your 2022 flights. Once implemented and flights continue, your status will change yearly on 2/1. Beyond the specifics, all you need to do is enjoy flying and you will be rewarded.
We hope you are as excited for this new adventure as we are to provide it to you! Reach out to me or any other senior staff member with any questions.
