Virtual United Airlines June Status

We experienced much improvement to our front-end product in the month of May. This month’s highlights include an exclusive partnership with REX Game Studios and the release of vUAL 2.0 (a new ACARS and web­site platform). With these upgrades we are making several improvements and coordinating with our pilots for an optimized virtual experience. Our efforts as we look forward are to best suit our pilots needs and to create a unique and engaging environment.

vUnited 2.0 www.virtualua.org
Our staff team took the time to sit down and rethink our website/ACARS platform in order to renovate and create a modern design while improv­ing usability. Please find the linked feature article on the new website and ACARS (http://www.virtualua.org/contrails/Special%20Edition%20(Final).pdf). This new site will bring our members more eye-candy and functionality for all stages of virtual aviation from preflight to filing your PIREPS.

Partnerships
The cornerstone of vUnited’s values is creating a strong relationship with other developers and organizations in the community. We would like to thank our numerous partners and their efforts to help benefit both of our organizations! This month vUnited rolled out a new partnership with REX Game Studios. This new agreement will give our pilots access to company discounts through the vUnited Pilot Shop. We are also continuing to work towards ATO status with VATSIM upon the upcoming release of our Training Center.

Star Alliance Codeshares
Our pilots asked and we delivered! vUnited is currently in the process of acquiring and implementing Star Alliance timetables to increase global reach in the simulator. We will be rolling out the different codeshares in Continue reading

vUAL1.1 New Improvements Released

Virtual United Airlines (virtualua.org) is a non-profit volunteer hobby organization for simulation pilots, an environment in which the individuals can experience, learn, and have fun while conducting basic and advanced piloting skills using flight simulator software. vUAL prefers not to call itself a “virtual airline,” but rather a virtual organization. While simulating real world operations in flight simulator is a goal, vUAL wants to promote and teach all forms of aviation. vUAL would like to be a learning tool, where flight simulator users can come to experience a new level of both real and virtual aviation.

It is with my pleasure to announce the release of vUnited Airlines version 1.1! Since our opening late last week, vUAL’s staff has been at work to bring our pilots the forefront in cutting edge technology and realistic operations. Version 1.1 brings users the same abilities with added modules including:

Improvements to ACARS and new Custom Dispatch Center
Our custom-built ACARS client seamlessly integrates with the website and booking system. The technology department has fixed the landing rate bug and made improvement enhancements in the latest release. We recently released our custom dispatch 1.0, where our pilots can get a touch of the real world aviation.

vUAL Enhanced Rewards Program with Pilot Shop
vUnited Pilots will now be rewarded for their flights in our new reward program, vUAL Rewards. The system is based off of a 1 point per nautical mile flown and pilots can use accumulated points to buy gift cards to flightsim.com or badges for our TeamSpeak 3 server and much more. As pilots gain more and more points, one can be promoted to the Silver, Gold, Platinum, or Platinum Plus in which they receive 3, 5, 8, 10 vUAL reward points per Continue reading
