Many new pilots have been seen joining the virtual airline.This month our VA Central position is 123. This month our members recorded a total of 16 PIREPs. This month PIAS Virtual has received a total of 11 new pilots which is a great improvement last month we had received a total of only 8 pilots. Congratulations to all pilots and staff for achieving this.
