President’s Christmas Message.

Two months ago, an idea came to mind: Create a Virtual Airline like no other, create a Virtual Airline that will pull together members of the IFC from all over the globe, represent the UK in the virtual world and lead British Airways Virtual Airline into the IFC battle.

Having approached my now deputy and assistant, Joshua Fleming and Joshua Tobin we together created Speedbird Virtual Airline. After time, we was awarded the honour of flying the British Airways flag.

As of today, we have 86 members of our thriving and brilliant community. We organise group flights daily and have hosted many successful IFC events with hundreds of you attending over the events.

We stared out fighting for 20 members, we today can boast that we are approaching our target of 100 members by new year’s day and are so excited about that. 2017 will bring us so many new and exciting challenges, but I am sure that our excellently competent Senior leadership team, our middle leaders and our outstanding ATC command team can pull together and continue to deliver the best, most realistic experience to our VA.

2017, will also see us announce build on and create new partnerships with verbal ATC teams, flight-escort services and the OneWorld alliance, partnerships and friendships we have and continue to work heard to develop and maintain.

On 25th December, Christmas day, we host our grand Christmas day event ‘Come fly together this Christmas’ – I am so excited about the idea of British Airways Virtual Airline hosting an event not exclusive to BA, but extending the invite across the community, and I really do hope to see you there.

To finalise, I would like to take the time to personally thank each of our pilots for their commitment, thrive to achieve and willingness to adapt to our organisational changes but most of all for their continued effort in the fight to ensure British Airways are at the top of the Virtual Airline game.

To all my senior staff, middle leaders and pilots, Thank you so much and please, have a very Merry Christmas.

To our members and everyone in the wider community may I wish you a Merry Christmas and a prosperous 2017 on behalf of everyone at British Airways VA.

It is with great pride I can announce the promotion of @Joshua_Fleming within British Airways VA.

Joshua has been my deputy since day one. He has helped me to; set up, establish, run and write countless reports and statistic performance charts. Between us we have led this VA to the best of our ability.

Josh, is a proper leader. He knows his place, he knows his role and he wants nothing more than to lead and put in hours and hours of work into making sure my orders and strategies are delivered to the highest possible standard.

Without Joshua, keeping the SLT in tack and running the show, leaving me free to be in the background doing the kind of stuff i should be left to do, make decisions. I would really struggle and for sure, we wouldn’t be planning a 100th member celebration event like we are now…

But what is Joshua promoted to… Josh, i award you with the honour of promotion in title to ‘Senior Deputy President’ - in recognition of the hard work and effort you contribute to British Airways Virtual.

I hope you all join me in congratulating and thanking @Joshua_Fleming for all he does.

Mr. Senior Deputy President, Congratulations and thank you, my friend.

Assistant President. @lewis_nathan and ATC Supervisor @finnb have been working hard on setting up #ATCrota - a channel within our slack stream where our ATC operators will post when they are operating. They will add what airport and what server and simply add the Active reaction for when they are online and then Closed reaction when they shut up shop. Thus allowing you to always know when there is an ATC available for your flight.

DID YOU KNOW You can also be request ATC for your own flight, or BA VA group flight by messaging the ATC Supervisor @finnb

If I may offer my personal thanks to @lewis_nathan and @finnb and all of the ATC operators who have trained hard and worked hard to get this set up for you.
