Officially approved on 2020-05-12T06:00:00Z
Hello everyone and welcome to Korean Virtuals 1 year thread!! Officially approved exactly one year ago today, we have been learning and evolving through our time in the VA community! With advancements in our systems, to new codeshares and routws expanding out reach around the virtual world. @CPT_Colorado founded KVG back in early 2020, and was eventually approved on 2020-05-12T06:00:00Z, and we began operation with a staff of just 3 people. Today the staffing team just consists of my self and hopefully will continue to grow! Today we celebrate one year of operations and cant wait for the future years to come!
Staff are a crutial part of our daily operations and continue to keep the VA running! We currently have 2 open staff positions at KVG, the Events manager, and the graphics manager, both can be applied for here. Currently our CEO is the only staff member and works hard on a daily basis to keep pilots intrested in what we have to offer, and to keep them active!
@CPT_Colorado : Hello! My name is Connor and i live in the beautiful state of Colorado, USA. I founded KVG on the hopes of giving me something to do over quarentine. Once we were approved i faced set backs with crew center issues, staffing issues, and keeping pilots motivated. But after one full year of opperations i can say that i have learned so much and have come so far through this journey. I have met so many kind people within the VA community and i keep meeting more. The pilots in the VA are so kind and i can really engage with them since we are so small! I have loved being the CEO of Korean Virtual every since i started and i cant wait for many more years!
VACANT: Manages and creates events on the IFC, with our codeshares and skyteam partners, and groupflights within the VA. We would like to request that the user who applies for this role stays with us here in the VA for 3 months min, and can attend and make events at all hours in the world so our pilots can attend.
Make cool and modern graphics for us! These graphics will be posted on our instagram and future thread updates and threads.
Our operation structure here at KVG is quite simple. We operate through pilot choice and now coming to the VA we are introducing reward programs! These reward programs are quite simple and resemble some of Korean Airlines actual programs!
New to KVG we would like to introduce SKYPASS. SKYPASS is a new reward system coming to KVG this year! This reward system will allow pilots to earn/gain “miles” these miles can be gained by flying a codeshare route. Anytime a pilot within the VA flies one of our codeshare routes they will gain miles. These miles add up and eventually they can be used to “upgrade” their status in the VA, and “upgrade” their hours. Wanna find out more on SKYPASS join KVG today here.
Also new to KVG this year is our BEP or Bom Events Pass. This pass is given to every pilot apon entry to the VA. For each in house event, skyteam in house event, or skyteam IFC event you recieve 1 kkoch. Certain numbers of kkoch’s get you higher event rankings in the VA, these bennifet you with earlier pushback and event multipliers.
(Bom in Korean means Spring, and kkoch means flower)
A new feature to this year for KVG is a brand new crew center. We have made a crew center using the Infinite Flight friendly Flare crew center. With the help of @KaiM we were able to move away from php and get access to the amazing Flare. With easier acess to finding ranks, searching ranks, and easily navigating the crew center, as a pilot you will have everything you need to sucessfully complete a flight. We were also so thankful to use the help of @CaptainZac and get our crew center hosted using his VAnet service! Our crew center can be found at Login - Korean Virtual
Codeshares are a great part at expanding our route network and getting unique routes to fly across the globe. Curently KVG has 18 codeshares that allow us to rech all islands of Hawaii, operate in and out of major US hubs, fly around the beautiful scenery of europe and more! Our codeshare network is as follows:
Working with Sky Team virtual we are able to provide pilots with a realistic feeling. Almost every airline under Sky Team alliance in real life is approved within the IFVARB allowing for more realistic operations with our partners. Most Sky Team partners share routes with us, but we are still working on some other VA’s.
