My name is Mathieu and I’m a new pilot. Ive reached Grade 3 but I’m still feeling alone. People told me that there are virtual airlines. They also told me that VAs are a very good way to find new friends, meet new people. I wanted to know how can i integrate these virtual airlines? OR How can i just integrate a community to not feel that alone.
You shouldn’t feel alone here, it’s a great place! I hope you make some great friends along your journey with the IFC and o think the best way to make friends is to join a VO or VA! Take a look through the #live:va category and pick 1 or 2 you like, have a great time!
In their threads, VAs normally have a link to a google form that asks you for information.
Also, check out their sites, as it is easy to find information on the application process there, along with what to expect when you join.
Check #tutorials and read up on them, some tests are practical knowledge, and others a rule based, most are both. Example, vertical/horizontal separation when flying, VRF/IFR flight rules, taxi speeds, procedures and so on. You can always message the VA account, and ask what they recommend. Most will tell you to check the Infinity flight #tutorials which again i do recommend:)
I’d also just like to pop in and say that this very community is a great way to make friends. Peruse interesting topics, participate in discussions and sign up for events or group flights! As time goes on, you’ll find that most of us are very inclusive, and soon you’ll have friends and fly-mates in no time.
Thank yyou! I wasnt expecting to have that much answers and that much help from this community. Thankyou so much! I feel less alone now :). I was a little bit shy creating this post because i thought i will look like a stupid person! And by the way im trying to integrate real airlines VA, for personal reasons!!!
