  1. Weebly works good. I prefer Wix, but they’re really similar.

  2. I know you can on Wix, I don’t know about doing so on Weebly or other sites.

  3. Airtable is your best bet. It’s the easiest platform in my opinion.

  4. Also Airtable. It’s very simple and straightforward.

  5. The Prospective VA Staff Request Thread

You can refer to Flightradar24, flight aware etc. They have all the information you need. Another option is to purchase schedules, fleet and airport lists from virtualairlineschedules.net

Wix has a login page (for members) if I’m not wrong.

Another option to file pireps would be a phpVMS crew center. Check out the tutorial!

Wix or Weebly are good, but a HTML template can also be good (free hosting with infinityfree.net)

I’m just going to say this now, I said this yesterday and I will continue to spread this message, because it’s extremely important.

If you don’t know the basics of how a VA works and operates, don’t start a VA. It’s a tedious process that requires months of hard work, dedication, and experience. Trust me, it’s not easy. Get the experience, learn the fundamentals first.
