Caal Airways April Report

What a busy month we had. We recorded 88 pireps and our Va Central Rank jumped from 102 to 85 which is amazing as I had said in my March report it would be great to get into the top 100. Congratulations to all pilots and staff for achieving this.

Caal Airways had a major staff restructure also. Hub managers were done away with and Operations Managers were implemented. We now have an OPS Manager for USA,UK,South Africa and Ireland(north&south), not forgetting our cargo operations also at Stansted. Each OPS manager can have 2 hubs and a Hub Captain to assist him. All OPS Managers are currently looking to employ Hub Captains. Contact details can be found on the website. I am currently covering the Ireland OPS but would like to recruit someone to fill this role. This new structure creates exciting new developments and already has seen the addition of 2 new hubs at Manchester and Cork. South Africas 2nd hub has yet to be decided.

We are hosting an event this Friday 4th May from EICK to EGAA to celebrate the opening of Cork. The event has been advertised on Vroute and is open for anyone to join in. Caal members can book their slot time in the events section under the resources tab.

I myself took my P1 exam on Vatsim and and would encouage all pilots who use Vatsim to apply for this exam to get a P1 rating. It does look good on our Va’s CV. I might be starting mentoring for P1 with vatsim for pilots who need a bit of coaching before they take the exam. The course is designed to help pilots who are at any stage of their virtual flying from beginner to the more experienced.

Our community continues to grow with more pilots joining the ranks of Caal Airways and that is due to the hard work and dedication of my staff and for that I am forever gratful.

Keep up the good work and lets see what May brings.

Alan Cooke

CEO Caal Airways
