(Ceased Operations) RTW Airways

RTW Airways is an original VA that has been in planning for several weeks.


We have routes in the London and Seattle region, with bases in EGHH, EGLC and KSEA. Once global comes out, we will maintain our current bases, except we will add VMMC. Here is an overview of our fleet:

[details=Fleet]
Dash 8 Q400 (Regional)
E-170 (Regional)
A318 (Regional)
A321 (Short Haul)
737-800 (Short Haul)
E-190 (Short Haul)
757-200 (Medium Haul)
787-9 (Long Haul)
A330-300 (Long Haul)

We use the generic livery for all aircraft. [/details]

Routes (Current)

The Story Behind Our Routes

The reason why I specifically chose London City, Bournemouth, Seattle and Macau as our bases is because they’re in places that I really like. I’ve always wanted to go to London City, and I love it due to its steep approach and unique design. For Seattle, I remember back in the days of X-Plane 9 in where I flew in Sea-Tac the most. And of course Macau, which will be debuting in global. The taxi to the runway there is amazing! We have set specific aircraft for specific routes due to the varying sizes of airports and fields.
#Current Routes:

With Global on the horizon, we have set routes for the current regions which may become obsolete soon. The regions in which we are currently based in are Seattle and London. NOTE: All of these routes will be either closed or become regional when global comes out. Due to lack of airports in Seattle at the moment, we have temporary bases in KOLM and KPDX, but all routes from Olympia and Portland will be closed with exceptions to KSEA-KOLM and KSEA-KPDX. If you do not have the plane assigned to the route, then you may use any other aircraft from the same category.

Global Routes

For global, we will only have one extra base, which is in Macau. London City will serve short haul/regional flights, Bournemouth will do short/medium haul, Seattle will be short/long haul, and Macau will be regional, short haul and medium haul. Unlike the current routes, these won’t have assigned aircraft to specific routes. For example, when you fly VMMC-VHHH, you don’t have to fly in the E-170, you can fly in any regional aircraft.

Thank you to all that applied! We’re well on our way to 10 pilots :)

We’ve opened more routes in the Seattle region! The new additions are:
KSEA-KOLM-KHQM (Regional)
KPDX-KMMV (Regional)
KPDX-KUAO (Regional)
KMMV-KHQM (Charter)

After some thorough discussion, @Captain_Louis and I have decided to open up one new division of RTW Airways. We have two options:

  • Training Academy (Short Hops with C172, C208 and SR22, also possibly some trainers for help)
  • Cargo Division (A330-200F, 777F and maybe C-130)
