Going back to date, this VA was founded in late December '18 by our former CEO @Prasoon_S and the airline is reaching its 6 months completion. We never expected to have come this far. Our pilots have helped us reach great heights. As of the moment, our pilots have logged over 8000+ hours along with 1,400+ flights logged till date. This is a record breaking achievement for our VA in such a small time. our pilots have flown about 3.2 million miles which approximately equals to 130 revolutions of the earth.
