Dear pilots and community members,
We’re glad to finally be able to announce our latest (and greatest) rework. From what I understand, UVAL has had to experience several reworks, some for the better, some for the worse. As a pilot here myself, I can understand the frustration regarding our so many changes. It is my hope that this latest rework, while tedious, will bring you the best experience so far. With our first release, we will be offering you guys up to 7 new feautures and changes and we will be sharing with you guys 2 WIPS that will be released soon.
Without further ado, allow me the pleasure of cutting the ribbon, if you will, to the new United Virtual; Connecting people. Uniting the World.
Introducing our AV/ATE Academy
Once again, we have decided to enhance our training program; replacing it with our new AVIATE Academy. Our mission at AVIATE is to give you, the pilot, the knowledge that will provide the best and most realistic flying experience possible. Through our self-guided courses, you’ll be able to proceed at your own pace with Instructor guidance and learn proper procedures, communications, and much more. Our courses are divided into separate Modules, each Module focusing on improving an aspect of the pilot’s flying capability. You will have a designated recruiter and flight instructor to help you get through these Modules, however, the main objective is for you to learn by yourself, guided by our Flight Instructors.
MileagePlus Rewards Program
Enjoy some of our greatest perks with our MileagePlus Rewards Program. Whether it be special access to our hidden fleet or access to one of our most exclusive lounges, which gives even more unfiltered access, MileagePlus is a program that all can enjoy. Membership will be based upon the miles your fly overall, regardless of hours or multipliers. Below, we’ve highlighted the full list of ranks and benefits. We hope to see more of you at Events to collect those Miles!

We’re really hoping to be able to greatly improve our pilot experience with these changes. Personally, I am extremely excited as we roll these programs out. Working together with @Kenneth_Natal and @Carlos_R has been a tremendous honor and together, we hope to be able to build UVAL to be the best it can be.

Should you have any questions about United Virtual, please do not hesitate to reach out to myself or directly message this account.
We hope you fly the friendly skies,
Executive Vice President
