Nooo… I’m going to miss the ATC team for this VO. That was my personal highlight for this VO, and actually made me feel confident in the ATC department. Other than that, lookin’ good as always.

Over the past 2 weeks, Plane & Pilot has been looking over feedback from our consumers and preparing a list of changes that will make our second largest “update” ever. Today we announce several changes that will help streamline our operations and help us focus on what our members and attendees enjoy most, making our VO more fun for everyone involved. Here is a list of our major changes:

Discontinuing our ATC team: We have decided to shut down our ATC team for the time being due to a low amount of use compared to the time and effort our staff put into it. This will greatly free up our staff team’s work load so that we can focus on the services that have a much higher demand.

Rebranding as The Plane & Pilot Flying Club: Our flying club or Slack is by far the most successful part of our organization, with nearly 200 members and consistent activity. We will be rebranding our full name from Plane & Pilot Events to The Plane & Pilot Flying Club in order to place more emphasis on our leading source of activity and insure that people know what our VO is really about.

Staff changes: After a few unforseen circumstances, we have had to make some changes to our staff. @Airbus_737 has been promoted to the COO position. Along with being Slack manager, he will be the new second in command in Plane & Pilot! Additionally, @Luke_Sta has join our staff team as our new pattern events manager! Luke has been an excellent member of our VO and we can’t wait to see what he brings to upper management.

A new type of pattern event: Even though we are closing our ATC devision, our popular “Plane & Pilot Patterns” event series will continue. Pattern events will now be held on the expert server and will be coordinated with the IFATC schedule in order to create a more professional and enjoyable environment.

These changes are kind of strange as frankly it feels weird in this change. However, I hope it works out great. I hope to see your VO progress in the future.

On November 9th, Plane & Pilot is very excited to announce that we will be hosting our 100th public event! Since we were founded in 2016, we have created and managed nearly 3 times as many IFC events as any other VO or individual, and we are still going at it! To celebrate one of the biggest milestones in Plane & Pilot’s history, we will draw a massive 100 in the sky using a special flight plan. We will do this on the beautiful coast of California, the location of our first event : starting out at KSJC, a VO community favorite, and KBUR, a popular airport in the Hollywood area of LA. We hope many of you can join us and help make this event a memorable one. Thanks to all of our VO and everyone who has supported us for helping us reach this incredible number of unique and we’ll organized events, here’s to the next 100🥂.

100!? Wow, I can’t believe how much events I have participated in. It’s been a long way since in the 30s-50s events range. I do not remember which event it was. Big achievement you got it buddy, @PlaneCrazy.

In December of 2016, @PilotZerge and I founded Plane & Pilot as a basic event planning service for Infinite Flight. Fast forward 3 years and we are one of the most highly praised and well known VOs in the community with nearly 200 members and over 100 public events under our belt. We never thought we would get this far through all of the ups and downs that we have experienced, but we have, and now we are the oldest VO on the platform to run under the same CEO since their being. Thanks to everyone involved for helping us get this far, we hope to continue serving this amazing community in the years to come.

To celebrate our 3 year anniversary, we will be replicating our opening event from all the way back in 2016, a short flight which travelled from KSAN, up to KNUC, and then over the KLAX in generic commercial jets. Although it isn’t very significant (or realistic) by today’s standards, it was an amazing experience when it happened and we hope to relive it this month. If you enjoy the California coast, casual flying, or you just want to help us celebrate this massive milestone, make sure to join us on the 14th!
