Virtual United Airlines June Status

We experienced much improvement to our front-end product in the month of May. This month’s highlights include an exclusive partnership with REX Game Studios and the release of vUAL 2.0 (a new ACARS and web­site platform). With these upgrades we are making several improvements and coordinating with our pilots for an optimized virtual experience. Our efforts as we look forward are to best suit our pilots needs and to create a unique and engaging environment.

Our staff team took the time to sit down and rethink our website/ACARS platform in order to renovate and create a modern design while improv­ing usability. Please find the linked feature article on the new website and ACARS (http://www.virtualua.org/contrails/Special%20Edition%20(Final).pdf). This new site will bring our members more eye-candy and functionality for all stages of virtual aviation from preflight to filing your PIREPS.

Partnerships
The cornerstone of vUnited’s values is creating a strong relationship with other developers and organizations in the community. We would like to thank our numerous partners and their efforts to help benefit both of our organizations! This month vUnited rolled out a new partnership with REX Game Studios. This new agreement will give our pilots access to company discounts through the vUnited Pilot Shop. We are also continuing to work towards ATO status with VATSIM upon the upcoming release of our Training Center.

Star Alliance Codeshares
Our pilots asked and we delivered! vUnited is currently in the process of acquiring and implementing Star Alliance timetables to increase global reach in the simulator. We will be rolling out the different codeshares in stages. The first airlines to be released into service with vUnited are: Lufthansa, Air Canada and ANA. We will continue to release codeshares monthly until they are all in the system!

Growth and Development
It is incredible how fast this virtual community has taken off the ground. vUnited started operations less than three months ago and has grown to a 300+ member community with pilots all across the globe. A majority of our pilots are active VATSIM users and represent some of the most dedicated and skilled pilots in the virtual community. We will continue to adapt to the growth to best suit the needs of our pilot so no member’s question or issue goes unanswered.
