Today, Golden Ghana VA released a special schedule to celebrate it’s first birthday. The new timetable features seven cities between Accra/Ghana and Yaounde/Cameroon. Seen from above, the flights between these cities will draw a big “G” on the map of Western Africa.

The flights will be performed with two additional aircraft in the GOG fleet: In the morning at 0600 UTC, a Boeing 737-800 departs at Accra to the East, while at the same time a Bombardier Canadair CRJ200 starts from Yaounde to the West. In the evening, both aircraft will return to their origin.

Both aircraft are painted in a new GOG Birthday livery created by Mr. Ingo Patzke. This livery is available for addons to Flight Simulator 9, Flight Simulator X and X-Plane. The screenshot shows the EADT x737 for X-Plane at the airport of Accra.

Kesuk Charters Celebrates Three Years of Bush Flying!

Fairbanks, AK-Three years ago a start up cargo and passenger charter company sprung up out of what beautiful wilderness of Alaska. In the past three years we have watched Kesuk Charters develop into one of the most economically viable companies in Alaska. When we caught up with owner, Roger Bates, at Fairbanks International yesterday he was quoted as saying, “I never in my wildest dreams believed Kesuk would have grown and become as successful and diverse as it has today, three years wow!”

In the past three years Kesuk has serviced the many rural areas that exist in our beautiful state with the highest safety and business rating. Mr. Bates attributes this to the professionalism and attentiveness of all his employees. In the last three years, Kesuk has evolved from a small company to a company that keeps the rural small community economies stable or growing.

Although this is a great day for Kesuk to celebrate its glorious past, Mr. Bates, makes it a clear point that the future is bright for Kesuk because of that celebrated past. Kesuk. “I feel our brightest days are the days coming in the future” said Mr. Bates. When asked to elaborate, he left the future open to anything, because that’s the founding ideal behind Kesuk.

If you’re looking for a different and challenging VA experience, Kesuk may be for you. Kesuk’s pilots are held accountable for fuel, researching flights and finances as they would be in the real world, this is why Kesuk isn’t for everyone. With that being said Kesuk is also all about fun, how many VA’s can say they have charters that require a pilot to land on the road? We can! And it’s legal in Alaska! Come check us out! Whether you have a main VA or not; Kesuk is great as a main or a secondary VA to escape the heavies for a return simpler yet challenging flying in the beautiful backdrop that is Alaska!

vStrategic Air Mobility Command Celebrates 3 Years of Operations

Virtual SAC will celebrate its third anniversary on April 10th. Recently we merged two sites, Virtual Air Mobility Command & Virtual Strategic Air Command to form our present program. Originally it was our intent to let these programs stand alone until we wound up bouncing between to sites with a structural differences that created a lot of confusion.

So we returned to out roots as a cargo VA wrapped in Air Force skins.”Trash Haulers” if it fits in the doors, we haul it anywhere in the world. There is no heavy structure or restrictions to what and where you fly as we allow you the pilot in our basic mode to create his/hers own routes.

Opportunities not only in rank progression, but ribbons, medals, badges and bonus hours. You can fly as lite as the L19 through the C-17, not to mention the F-14, 16 and a host of other Air National Guard assets. Its about having fun. Its all about flying. No standing at attention or saluting. So stop by take a look around, we left all the tabs open to the public.

flew daily the last years hours long for us our clients and partners.

We want to celebrate this Event in the way that Ive informed my Vice-presidents and Pilots, that Id like to see our whole fleet @LOWW Vienna, Austria our Homeairport.

This sounds maybe not that challenging, but if you think of the big range and numbers of Aircrafts our fleets got due to our expansion we had in the last years, it gets easily a very tricky adventure.

We have currently have 170 Aircrafts owned, based all over the world organized in the following Fleets:

  • FlightSchool
  • PAX Division
  • Cargo Division
  • Executive Division
  • Helicopter Division
  • Regional Division
  • Oldtimer/Props Division

and so you might see that it could be tricky to get our 12 Helis from Ireland or our 16 Continue reading

Airbus A320, G-FRSX, rotated off of Glasgow Airport’s runway with 153 passengers on board bound for Belfast. One year later, we have successfully operated over 450 flights, reached 1000 hours and carried nearly 70,000 passengers across a total distance of over 300,000 miles. We would like to congratulate all the crew at freshJet on this excellent achievement.

“It’s been an exciting 12 months and I’d like to say a big thank you to all the freshJet pilots who put in the time and effort to make us who we are today. I’d like to thank all of the staff members who made it all happen, and who also had the time to put in the hours to contribute to the airline and I hope we can keep up the efforts to keep us going in the future.”
