I’d like to say my opinion on this very opinionated discussion. I’m reading so many comments regarding how “IFVARB are to strict and need to be more relaxed etc”.
I must say I highly disagree.
What is the definition of a ‘Virtual Airline’? “A virtual airline (VA) is a dedicated hobby organization that uses flight simulation to model (simulate) the operations of an airline.” First of all I can absolutely guarantee 90% of Virtual Airlines do not simulate real life airlines. In fact a lot do the opposite eg; making there own rules (far from real life operations of a airline) with a lot of leaders/owners of the virtual airlines just in it for the pleasure of satisfaction in leading a group the way they want (power hungry) and actually not simulating real life management of a airline in a professional manner, giving aviation enthusiasts the wrong impression of how this industry works. With IF having a enormous community it holds the capacity to make these experiences real, involving real life knowledge on airlines and the opportunity for aviation enthusiasts to gain information from real life employees of the industry.
If you want it to be easier in order to make and run a VA so you can do whatever you want, then your in the wrong place… go make a ‘virtual organisation’, somewhere else and not a “virtual airline” in a aviation hobby environment. This online environment is built for virtual airlines. So either be professional and follow the so called “strict” rules by the IFVARB who I must remind you are approved by FDS… for a reason or leave this IFC category. Cause realistically IFVARB aren’t strict enough (my opinion).
Remember this is just my opinion.
If you would like to strongly disagree with me in a rude manner please DM me and don’t argue on this thread.
Also I would like to take this time to congratulate @QantasVirtualGroup on being a very professional VA and offering community members a realistic airline experience. Well done.
