Phoenix Virtual Airways Adds Real World Schedules For All Airlines Worldwide

NEW YORK, New York – In the largest scheduling update so far in their nearly three year history, Phoenix Virtual Airways has added all regularly scheduled flights from the Summer 2012 season. PVA now operates the largest and most complete virtual airline schedule available with daily flights representing 720 airlines worldwide. Pilots of PVA can fly 2,350 aircraft to 3,550 destinations, many matching what can be found on popular flight tracking websites like

“This was a huge update and a great effort from all of our staff,” stated CEO Michael Moro. “Our goal has always been to offer a simulation of all airlines in the world, and with these changes we have met that goal. Now our goal will be to keep the schedules updated on a seasonal basis.”

“The first challenge was sourcing the data; then we had to make that data work within our system,” remarked Dustin Abell, Executive Vice President Operations. “There were a number of changes that had to be made such as coming up with a way for the same flight number to be used on multiple legs–something the base PVA system didn’t support.”

Some notable new aircraft include a C-130 cargo fleet, DHC-2 Beaver, DHC-3 Otter, DHC-4 Caribou, Cessna Citation Jets, Boeing 787, Ilyushin IL-76, many flights in Beech, Piper and Cessna light aircraft, and more. Alaskan bush flying is also available now as many little strips and seaplane bases have been added for the DHC aircraft. All of this is in addition to the standard fleet of Continue reading

Central Asian Airlines Announces New Route to Tamchy

Central Asian Airlines is proud to announce that a new destination will be added to Central Asian’s route network: Tamchy, on the beautiful Issyk-Kul lake in Kyrgyzstan.

Issyk-Kul is one of the largest mountain lakes in the world, and a prime holiday destinations for Central Asians. It features unique nature, absolute rest and tranquillity, and the most spectacular scenery.

Flights between Almaty and Tamchy will commence on Sunday 10th June 2012 and operate on a daily basis. With one flight in the morning and one in the late afternoon and a flight time of only 35 minutes, this could be a perfect day out! This flight will be operated on a Saab 2000 aircraft.

Additionally, flights between Bishkek and Tamchy will also start operating on the 10th June. Three return flights per week will be offered from the Kyrgyz capital (Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday), and these flights will also be operated in a Saab 2000 aircraft.

Why not try Tamchy as your next holiday destination? It’s a worthwhile visit to one of the biggest lakes in the world! And besides, the scenery en-route to Tamchy is nothing less than spectacular (even the standard MSFS scenery :-))

In FSX, Tamchy is represented by a Continue reading


Caal Airways Virtual Monthly Update for December 2011

What a great month December was.  We logged a total of 121 pireps which is 23 up on last month. Our VA Central Rank jumped 7 places to 107.

Mikes tour in USA was a great success and Jacks tour In south America looks like being a great tour.  We are still short of a Los Angeles Hub Manager.  All applications will be considered and should be sent to

I myself qualified as a ground controller on Vatsim in the Scottish RTS which covers Aldergrove.  I would love to get an online event up and running to put Caal Air on the Vatsim Map.  We have now been granted official partnership with Vatsim.

My last suggestion for a voice callsign was redhand, but unfortunately this callsign is used by the military so we need a new callsign.  Any ideas will be considered.

I hope that 2012 brings Caal Air forward as a top VA and I would also like to thank everyone for Continue reading
