It’s is with great regret that I step down from Haggis Wings. I have had good fun setting up this VA but it has drained a lot from me and I think I’m going to have a break from VAs for a couple of weeks. I will be succeeded by @Thomas_Ralph and I think he will do well at running this VA. I would lilhave to wish the management team luck.

Sigining off,

Weekly Update

This week the staff team at Haggis Wings have been busy discussing many new ideas and ways to improve the VA!

After agreement with the SMT we have decided to work on the following:

• Weekly IFC events - each week we will hold an event in a different region and a different theme to try and recruit more members!

• Our VA management software - we have decided to use PHPvms as a way of logging flights, this is easier than posting the ordinary screenshot on slack. This gives pilots the opportunity to bid for routes and to earn Virtual money. (Feature will be out when global is released)

• Updated application forms - over the coming days we will be updating our application forms and implementing an entry test of basic rules that should be followed by all members!

• More encouragement - we are encouraging all our pilots to watch the tutorials in #tutorials to enable them to become a better pilot. We ask that if you see any of our pilots with the “Haggis” callsign not doing something correctly to either PM one of the SMT or direct them to the relevant tutorials.

We have also opened up a few more staff positions as follows:

Head Of Events
• Must be at least 15 years of age
• TL2 or above
• Able to come up with good ideas for events
• Good knowledge of planning ahead

Deputy President
• Must be at least 15 years of age
• TL2 or above
• Must have strong leadership and communication skills
• Able to work with others effectively
• Able to take part in important decisions such as the hiring of staff

Thanks and here at Haggis Wings we strive to be your No1 Scottish VA!

I’d like to welcome @Joost3008 to the VA. He is the Head of Recruitment - his job should be obvious from the title.

I regret to announce that this VA is no longer active. We had some problems with members (not mentioning any names) and everything kind of fell apart
