Platinum Airways sings Happy Birthday to Us

Platinum-Birthday2014
On 10 November 2009, Platinum Airways, the very virtual Open Skies airline, registered its website domain, www.platinumairways.org. Happy Birthday to Us, the new Destination of the Week series, visits Platinum Airways’ five unique features and five hubs.

Devising, implementing and maintaining a virtual airline is not as easy as many would think. There are literally hundreds of VAs that vie for the attention of flight simmers around the globe. For a VA to be successful, it needs to position itself carefully and to keep on reinventing itself. Happy Birthday to Us will take you through Platinum Airways’ planning and implementation phases from scratch, when its founders defined the airline’s positioning, right up to its final major policy addition, to add online flying to its default offline offering. Other subjects that will be visited, include the DOTW series the airline has hosted over the past years and Cargo and Military flights. Happy Birthday to Us will visit the airline’s five hubs: KDFW, CYVR, YPPH, EBBR and KEWR.
As usual, DOTW offers charts to be downloaded and links to scenery files. A selection of YouTube videos usually contains flight deck and ground views with landings and departures. Continue reading

EuroHarmony VA Invites You to Our 12th Birthday Party!

EuroHarmony Virtual Airline marks its twelfth birthday on Monday 29th April and to mark such an achievement in the VA world we have planned a series of twelve new features and events over the coming months. On our birthday we begin the celebrations with a challenging fly-in over the mountains of the Peruvian Andes which will lead us to Arequipa, Peru – the first airport in our brand new Tour of the Amazon. The South American theme will continue with new flights across the continent and the introduction of a brand new plane from South America’s own Aerospace giant – Embraer. We will also be celebrating the most notable events of the past twelve years in the aerospace world with a set of Special Missions for our EuroBusiness Division. Add to that an imminent upgrade to our in house Flight Logger software, a special summer ProPilot Event, further Divisions Missions and a screenshot competition and you can begin to see what’s kept this virtual airline fresh and new for the last 12 years!

EuroHarmony VA is a friendly and relaxed virtual airline formed in April 2001. We believe choices and fun are more important than strict rules & offer pilots scheduled airline ops, three specialist Divisions, a bush flying arm, global sightseeing tours, challenging Missions with a huge choice of planes and our own flight logging software and unique ProPilot flight feedback system.
