Platinum Airways Visits Waterworks

Platinum-WaterworksPlatinum Airways, the Open Skies virtual airline, has announced its April DOTW theme: Waterworks. The series will visit four engineering masterpieces that are related to water.

Water is a crucial element. Some countries have too much, some too little. It can pose a serious threat to nature. And it offers engineering challenges. Waterworks will pay tribute to four engineering masterpieces that have solved major issues. The series will start with a visit to the Suez Canal that eliminates many days of sailing between the Indian and Atlantic Oceans. Our destination will be Port Said (HEPS) on the northern side of the canal. Our second Waterwork is the Panama Canal that addresses the issue of having to circumvent South America. We’ll be flying into Marcos Gelabert Airport (MPMG). No country in the world knows how to deal with water better than The Netherlands, and we’ll visit the Delta Works, an engineering work of genius to protect the Zeeland province against floods of the magnitude of the 1953 disaster that claimed more than 1,800 lives. The closest airport to the Delta Works is Rotterdam Airport (EHRD). We’ll conclude Waterworks with a visit to Las Vegas’ McCarran International Airport (KLAS), the closest large airport to Hoover Dam, a source of power and water, and a major leisure attraction.

Each DOTW comes with charts to be downloaded and links to Continue reading

It is our pleasure, from the hard working Staff Team at Virtual United, to introduce Virtual Project Forward. This is a new project will help make us one of the best in the World. When you hear that “Rhapsody in Blue” you automatically think United, but what about it from the virtual point of view?

Virtual Project Forward will revolutionize the ways of not only Virtual United, but also the Virtual Community. To begin, you have to be social. The community is what makes your airline succeed. At Virtual United were are working on moving to new heights with the start of live streaming on Twitch.tv. Next is realism. By working with our new members on the staff team, we are improving and adding those routes that you love to fly. There is nothing worst then looking forward to a flight, but not having it in the database. This is all being improved so if Star Alliance has it, then so do we. Organization is another key factor for something to succeed. In our case, Virtual Project Forward will improve the navigation of a new interface. Not going to say much, but don’t be surprised if one day there is a new website layout. This also ties into the visually appealing aspect. If something looks appealing, then it is proven more people will be drawn to it.

In conclusion, we would like to welcome you to Virtual United as we make a new beginning with Virtual Project Forward. These changes will help us tackle our goal of making Virtual United Social Club Inc. a place where Continue reading
