Lynx Airways Worldwide Sky Blue Radio VA Of The Year

On Sunday January 22nd, Sky Blue Radio was honored to select Lynx Airways Worldwide as the first recipient of the Sky Blue Radio VA of the Year. “Lynx Airways Worldwide has been in existence for almost 20 years and exemplifies the spirit of community that Sky Blue Radio wishes to celebrate.” said station manager Jeff “JT” Turner.

Entries from 17 other virtual airlines made the selection difficult. The judges panel consisting of Sky Blue Radio staff and listeners brought a list of who they felt represented community. Each list was comprised of their selections and was varied, but Lynx was on everyone’s list of finalists.

On hearing of their selection Ivan Rivas, CEO of Lynx said, “I am very honored by your selection of Lynx Airways Worldwide as VA of the Year.” As Sky Blue Radio’s VA of the Year, Lynx will become a large part of the Sky Blue Radio family throughout the coming year.

Sky Blue Radio wishes to thank all those VA’s that submitted entries to the contest and to those VA’s that promoted their organization on the Sky Blue Radio airwaves. It was such a huge success that Sky Blue Radio will be offering anther VA Days weekend sooner rather than waiting until next year. Please keep your eyes peeled for another VA Days weekend in the coming months.

Website Status and Site Rebranding

  I wanted to take the time to thank all who have wished me well on my surgery in comments and all the emails I have received.  They were definitely appreciated and helped keep my spirits high during my recovery.  My recovery took longer than anticipated but my arm is much better. :)   Thanks to everyone for their patience and support during my downtime..

Now for the real news of the day!  As you can see from the logo above, VAFlash will be undergoing a transformation of sorts.  The whole site will be redesigned and launched within a couple/few weeks.  I will also be expanding the VaFlash staff from one to many!  In addition to expanding beyond a one man shop, we will also be expanding VAFlash to include hardware and software reviews, editorials, and basically everything and anything related to Flight Simulation.  This has been in the plans for quite some time but was delayed due to multiple reasons.

Look for more information to come within the following days and weeks! :)

Best Regards,
Lindle Romero
