Types of Events We Have

Types Of Events We Have

Exploring the true North- These events will be open to both Air Canada Pilots along with guests. We will fly to “underused” airports in North America, but specifically Canada.

Weekly Events for Air Canada pilots only- These events are scheduled on our slack page and are available to all of our pilots. They are held every Wednesday.

Fill up Events- These events are self explanatory. We will try and fill up our hubs. Once a month this event will be held as it takes a long time to plan.

Air Canada Weekend Getaway- These are events where Air Canada flies to nice places anywhere in the world. Short haul to extra long haul. This event can be anything!

Wednesday Charters- These events will be every other Wednesday and this is when we transport Canadian sports teams to their destination in support for the team.

Core-6 Joint Event- This is a 4 event series featuring 6 awesome VA’s. ACVA, AAV, AFKLM, BAVA, DLVA, and UVA. We will be featuring all of these airlines hubs while we travel the world 200 pilots at a time.

Landing Competitions- A pilot favorite for almost all VA’s, the landing competition is an event where pilots are graded on their landings and are given an award of some sorts based on what position they come in.

Announcement:

We have updated our fleet! @Shae_Lenae, otherwise known as Jacob in our Virtual Airline submitted a request that we can add the “McDonnell Douglas DC9” and the “Boeing 737-8 MAX”. He was looking at the Boeing 717-200 and the Boeing 737-800 as aircrafts we can use and us staff at the ACVA decided to agree to his proposal! The reason we accepted is that we not only had one request for these but three and we only want to do what our pilots want and this will also add more for our pilot to look forward too. Our new ranking system can be viewed under “Fleet and Ranking System” both here and on our website.
