Citylink VA is Going to Beatles!

CityLinkYou read it correct. We are going to Beatles. Beatles refer to The Beatles. A very popular pop group in the sixties and seventies. And they came from Liverpool.  In fact is Citylink-va, going to Liverpool.
And by that we mean, we are going to open a new hub in Liverpool.

The grand opening of Liverpool will be executed with the RJ100. The plane that was just introduced in a couple of flights in the South of Spain. Malaga was the first point of starting our new strategy: ”Connecting the dots”. In fact we are connecting our future hubs with the RJ100. Liverpool is our new hub, and following Malaga, in the project “Connecting the dots”.

Liverpool connects to the following dots:
(LEMG) Malaga (+/- 3 hours)
(LFSB) Basel (+/- 1:45 hour)
(ENBR) Bergen (+/- 1:45 hour)

Canadian Xpress February 2016 Challenge – Dangerous Airports IX

CXA_Febr_2016_Challenge

This month, we depart Marseille Provence Airport (LFML) and travel to Courchevel is an airport serving Courchevel (LFML), a ski resort in the French Alps. The airfield has a very short runway of only 537 metres (1,762 ft) with a gradient of 18.6%.

There is no go-around procedure for landings at Courchevel, due to the surrounding mountainous terrain. De Havilland Canada DHC-6 Twin Otters and DHC-7 turboprops served the airport in the past; however, the airfield primarily sees smaller fixed-wing aircraft such as Cessnas as well as helicopters at present. The runway has no instrument approach procedure or lighting aids, thus making landing in fog and low clouds unsafe and Continue reading

Happy 10 Year Anniversary MetroAir Virtual!

Metro10-Years

A little more than 10 years ago on a cold Michigan morning, founder Mark McCoy had a crazy idea to build a new virtual airline that was focused on realism. The plan was to start the airline off like a new real world airline with a very limited fleet (and  cash balance).  The airline officially started with 6 Boeing 737-200ADVs and 3 Bombardier Dash 8-Q200s. ”Today is just the beginning” said McCoy on that very first day; his words have never rang so true.

For those of you who like numbers, in the 10 years we’ve had some impressive stats. Keep in mind that we did lose some data at one point so the numbers for all are really a little higher. In the Continue reading

Bluestar Airways is Ready for Boarding

BlueStar_logoBluestar Airways was founded in June 2015. We are a virtual Airline with no reference to an existing company. Any matches are purely random. Our goal is to simulate as realistic as possible the operation and process of an airline.

With modern aircrafts of the type Airbus 319/320/321, Boeing 737NG (738) and Bombardier Dash Q400 we start from our main hubs Berlin EDDBDublin EIDW and Stuttgart EDDS to numerous destinations in Europe. Our home base is the airport of Berlin-Brandenburg. Until the real opening of the airport of BER, we start from the old airport of Schoenefeld.

Some highlights of our Flight Dispatch Center,

  • Bookable flights, depending on pilot location
