Remember that you’re only nominating them for now.
I think it will be fine if they participate. They have a lot of traits of a VA and work with the IFVARB.
Yes, but they are not a VA, so technically they cannot be put on the virtual airlines database. Therefore, they shouldn’t be part of this awards competition. They are an ATC group, not an airline or flight group.
@_keithjames99 is this true? Because if it is, then unfortunately I will have to remove you guys
For best VA Partnership, I’d like to nominate the partnership between Qantas Virtual Group and American Airlines.
@RTG113 Take it straight from their page.
Yes it is true. I thought our participation is allowed because we run our structures like a VA and use discord, etc and even required IFVARB backing. I don’t mind though, you can take us off the list, it is your choice. Thanks.
Thank you for being honest.
I nominate IFSIM for the best VA to be a pilot for

I see voting of my own VA as rather unprofessional.
That being said, I still wish everyone the best for the awards :)
I think I would update my choice. I would vote for :
- Most Organized : Lufthansa and ANA Virtual
- Most Caring : IFSIAVA
- Best VA for the pilots : Qantas VA
Unless there is a change in rules, I’d rather vote that this topic be closed until there is a more fair voting system in place. Makes zero sense for people to be voting for their own VA.
You can nominate your own VA. The voting hasn’t begun yet. I don’t see what’s wrong with voting for your own VA? In the US elections the candidates can vote for themselves.
And this is not an official reward, just bragging rights. Just a little fun thing for the VA category :)

I see, but how do you account for votes from members of VA’s who have a large number of active pilots and have been around for a long time rather than a newly set-up VA with exceptional organisation and concept but with very few members? In simple terms, how are you ensuring uniformity and non-biased voting in this competition?
To be honest, I haven’t seen much bias so far. A few large VA ceo’s have came to me and chosen to opt-out of these awards, also I’ve seen some VA members/high ranking staff nominate other VA’s as well. Yesterday I also decided that there will be a “runner up” award for VA’s that place in second. I appreciate your concerns though!
