Great Lakes Express Nears Milestone

GreatLakesExpressa

Great Lakes Express (GLE), the Internet’s original regional VA and one of the longest running virtual airlines in getting closer to it’s milestone 1,000,000th passenger, expecting to reach this number in the next two days.

What makes this all the more impressive are two factors 1) the capacity of GLE’s regular fleet is small; the Beechcraft 1900D, Bombardier CRJ200, Bombardier CRJ700, DeHavilland Dash 8 Q400, Embraer 145, and Embraer 170 all seat less than 70 passengers, and 2) while GLE has been operating since January 1997, this magic number is only since they started using VAFS for tracking flight information in 2009.

GLE was founded by James Kohan in January 1997, offering flights in the Great Lakes region of the United States. Hubs include Cleveland OH, Rochester NY, Chicago IL (Midway), and Minneapolis MN.

If you are interested in flying for a relaxed, fun, regional VA, with an average flight time of 1 hour or less, please take the opportunity to Continue reading

Malaysia Airlines Virtual Reaches 1000 Members

malaysia

It is with great pleasure that I announce that Malaysia Virtual Airlines has reached 1000 members. After 4 years of operations we have reached this great milestone.  I have worked hard to bring MVA to where we are today. We have surpassed 17000 flights as well. Not many VA’s can say they reached 1000 pilots, but MVA has joined that club. We are not going to stop there though, we are going to strive for even more members, always going to improve what we offer.  Even though the real world airline has had two catastrophic crashes in recent months, we at MVA will always remember the two aircraft that have been lost, but most importantly will always remember the souls that were so tragically lost. May they all rest in peace. We will be holding a special event to mark the 1000th member, so stay tuned for more information on that event.

Regards,
Daniel Counahan
CEO of MVA
