Virtual United Airlines Press Release for August 2013

It continues to amaze us just how much vUnited is taking off this summer! We have much to report on from our operations department to community affairs, and everywhere in between. For starters, we would like to invite you to come and follow us on our several social media outlets or even send in an application and join the community’s fastest growing virtual airline! It is safe to say vUnited Virtual Airlines is firmly planted into the ground now as we approach 5 months of operation. We continue to see positive growth and look forward to the future. Since opening, we have achieved the following:

471 Pilots
4786 Flights
15348 Hours

Social Media:
2757 Facebook Likes
140 Twitter Followers
41 Instagram Followers – For our hipster members ;)
26 YouTube Subscribers

With our statistics out of the way, we would like to take a look at our milestone events in the month of July. On July 21st, vUnited held its first major event, Fun N’ Sun 2013. This event brought in over 80 operations to Houston Intercontinental Airport and we were fortunate enough to have several sponsors which donated products for the event!

Last month, we stated that vUnited was in the process of attaining its ATO status with VATSIM. As of today, we now offer a solid training program with P1/P2 ratings available (P3 and up soon to come).

Now is the best time to join vUnited if you have yet to join! Our executive department has decided to cap pilot registration at 500 pilots so get here quickly as we only have ~30 spots left. For those who join this month, they will receive 150 FREE transfer hours and 5000 vUnited Reward Points. In addition, vUnited is holding its second major event just weeks after Fun N’ Sun. On August 17, 2013, vUnited will be hosting the First Annual VirtUAL Flight Sim Expo. This event will be a showcase of the flight simulation community and the best part is everyone is invited! The conference will be held on a public TeamSpeak server (connection info to come), and we will have several guest speakers ranging from our partners to real world pilots! Afterwards, we will host a fly-in to Washington Dulles (KIAD) with special thanks to ZDC and ZBW (who will be hosting Boston! LIVE that day as well).

There is much to look forward to in the coming months here at vUnited. Our theme for Fall 2013, “Fall back with vUnited” will feature many new programs and incentives for pilots to get the most out of their flight simulation experience. These programs will feature customized training programs, more fly-ins, charter programs, and more!

Sadly enough, the school season starts in just a matter of weeks and we are sad to see summer go! This summer was a fantastic growing phase for vUnited and we hope that we can continue to provide an extraordinary experience to our members!
