Special Announcement!

Hello Infinite Flight Community! I would like to thank all of you for the boasting support these last few weeks. We are already at almost 50 members! Today’s announcement brings both sad and happy news.

To start, we announce the departure of @Matt_B. Matt has been truly a wonderful asset to this VA as Chief Education Officer. Matt is retiring from his staff duties due to the amazing opportunity to go to college and live his life to the fullest! We thank you, Matt, for your continued dedication and support to this VA. Your Training Lessons never failed to impress and you truly are one of the greatest staff members to ever be at CAVA!

Matt and I met in early 2020 @vAloha (one of our codeshare partners). Shortly after starting Air China Virtual Matt jumped onboard as the 4th staff member, eventually turning in to one of the most dedicated. Matt’s knowledge of aviation exceeds anything I would imagine. He is informative and is always willing to drop what he is doing to help someone out. Good luck in your future, Matt. We will deeply miss your charming character in the Slack, and I speak for all of us when I say we will never forget you and your work.

The Good News

Closing off with some good news! Today we welcome a brand new staff member to the CAVA family! Please give a warm welcome to @ToasterStroodie, the new Chief Education Officer! Danny joined Air China Virtual as one of our first pilots and has quickly befriended most, if not all of the CAVA Slack. He has shown immense leadership by helping out new members at our VA and has proved time and time again how helpful he is.

Danny serves the Infinite Flight Community as a faithful member of several high-profile Virtual Airlines and if a Officer at the Infinite Flight ATC group. He also uses his vast aviation knowledge to provide articles and writings for the IFATC Education Group. You can find him around the Infinite Flight Community and various Slack groups spreading positivity around! I have known Danny for 4 or so months and have truly seen immense compassion and hard work no matter what task he is doing. I am so grateful to have such a competent member of our community joining our ranks.

Welcome to the team, Danny!!

Pilot of the Month.

We welcome this month our very first Pilot of the Month. The Pilot of the Month award goes out to those that go above and beyond the call of duty as a pilot. As August was the first month we were open, the staff at CAVA did not expect much from out pilots. Boy…were we wrong! This month pilots accumulated over 1900 flight hours! Wow!

Our prestigious pilot of the month award goes out to @li7ing. Alex has accumulated over 400 hours by actively flying routes, ROTW (Routes of the Week) and Events. We welcomed him tonight into the highest rank our VA offers flying the beautiful queen of the skies. Congrats Alex on your achievement, we can’t wait to see how far you go!

Please be sure to give a farewell to @Matt_B and thank him for his services at the VA. Don’t forget to also congradulate @ToasterStroodie and @li7ing on their accomplishments!

Jarrett Schiedemeyer President and Founder of CAVA
