1.Yes, there are too many VA’s. And the reason for that is people don’t take into consideration how much time and work it takes to even start one up.
2.Yes, I feel like if a person is going to start up a VA, they should fully dedicate as much time as possible to it. One person should only be allowed to start one VA. Not start multiple VA’s that aren’t well made.
3.No, I don’t think there should be more than one Real-World VA on the current VA database here on the forum. In fact, I think if there is, the more professional one should be left there while the other one should be shut-down.
4.If you own an original VA, it is up to you to join a group and/or alliance. If you own a real world VA, I think you should only join an alliance if the real world airline is in that alliance IRL.
5.I personally think original VA’s are great! As long as they are well made. Take for example @BavariaAVIATION and @grxninesix who own TravelSky (I’m not a member, I’m just commenting based on what I have seen here on the forum and their website), they have a professional and well made, original VA.
6.I think VA’s in the future could be implemented in Infinite Flight using an ACARS system for PIREPS etc… Perhaps in the future, you would be able to change a setting in the settings menu stating whether you are doing a flight for a VA, then state the VA are a member of and doing a flight for, do your flight, and it would send the data of the flight to the website of the VA you did your flight for. :)
