As someone who is quite entrepreneurial by nature, and who enjoys creating and running businesses, I figured creating a VA might be a challenge that suited me quite well. It will allow me to combine two of the things I enjoy in an environment that encourages community - awesome…
I started digging through the VARB information which is fine, whilst taking part in an active VA where I am finding out more about how the online IF community work together. Working from the list of VAs on the official database I spent a few hours doing some research on some of the other Airlines featured in IF to see what opportunities may exist for a new VA. Having identified one or two that I would like to follow up on, I then subsequently discover threads in the VA forums for those VAs, even although they are not listed on the databases??
If a VA is not listed on the database, can it be assumed that the VA is no longer active, and as such available to start a new one?
Also, if there is an ‘Original VA’ that’s based on routes of a RW airline, would it be frowned upon to start a VA around the RW airline in question?
Sorry for posting in general, however being relatively new here I haven’t got the credentials to post in the VA threads, but figured the people with the info and answers might be looking in here also.
