|06/15/2015||New Boeing 787 program set for release in October and welcome to the new 787 Chief Pilot||Paul Hale|
In keeping with real world operations Air France/KLM Virtual Airlines are extremely proud to announce that our new Boeing 787 Program will be ready for action in October.
Fronting the program as Chief Pilot will be Martin Zelikovitz who has done an outstanding job as chief Pilot of our entry program the ERJ190 which was recently rebranded from the old ERJ145 program.
Martin has built up a wealth of staff experience and knowledge in his time as a staff member with us and fully deserves this promotion! A huge amount of work has already been going on behind the scenes by Martin and he has been working on new fleet 787 models and testing technical data such as fuel efficiency on many test flying hours.
As with any completely new program launch, a massive amount of work needs to be done but Martin has assured us that by release date everything will be ready to go, this will include a brand new fresh checkride for the program as well as First Officer and Captain examination question banks and of course the long arduous task of writing an Aircraft operations Manual from scratch and as already mentioned good working fleet models for both FS9 and FSX.
Please join me in congratulating Martin on his very well deserved promotion and the hard work he has already done in getting things started without the guarantee of the job offer until this weekend.
I would also like to say a big thanks to his main competitor for the job who also put in an extremely strong application and had also done many hours preparation work behind the scenes, it is very much appreciated but unfortunately only one man could get the job
Shortly Senior Staff will be advertising for a new Chief Pilot of the ERJ190 program that Martin will soon be leaving behind. The ERJ190 Chief Pilot is probably one of the most important as that program is the main gateway into our airline and we get a lot of pilots who are completely new to flying for a virtual airline and need to be supported and nurtured through their early days/week/months with us.
If you feel you have the qualities needed for the role of ERJ190 Chief Pilot, watch this space for when the position is advertised.
Best regards to you all,
Air France/KLM Virtual Airlines

It is a great honor to announce several recruitments into our virtual airlines to reinforce three of our programs.
Mr Silvian Baltac has been hired as Boeing B737 Assistant Chief Pilot. Silvian is from Romania and he is currently studying in United Kingdom and joined AF/KLM Virtual Airlines in June 2014. Silvian flew more than 300 legs during more than 1 year and has a huge experience on Boeing B737. Silvian will help Mr Zacharias Dupont for managing the Boeing B737 program.
Mr Calvin Diogo has been recruited as Embraer ERJ190 Assistant Chief Pilot. Calvin is from South Africa and he is currently studying in high school. In future, Calvin wishes to become a real airline pilot. Calvin joined AF/KLM Virtual Airlines two years ago as ERJ190 first officer and he knows perfectly well this airplane. Strong to this experience, Calvin will help Mr Martin Zelikovitz for managing the Embraer ERJ190 program.
Mr Tom Thompson has been recruited as Airbus A330 Assistant Chief Pilot. Tom is from United Kingdom where is currently studying in College. In future, Tom would like to become a firefighter. Tom joined AF/KLM Virtual Airlines in September 2013 as Airbus A320 first officer. To date, Tom is particularly qualified on Airbus A330, A340 and A380. His strong knowledge of Airbus aircrafts made him as the first choice to support Mark Hubbard for managing the A330 program.
Please join me in congratulating our three young new Assistant Chief Pilots.
|06/05/2015||New A330 Chief Pilot||Paul Hale|
It gives me great pleasure to announce that Mark Hubbard has been promoted to the Chief pilot position in our A330 program.
Mark has been the Assistant chief Pilot of this program for the past few months assisting our president Brian Hankey who was temporarily running the program.
Mark did such a fantastic job that Brian was not really called upon in anyway and essentially Mark was running the program in all but name, therefore the natural progression was for Brian to step back into his role as president and hand the reigns of the A330 program over to Mark.
Please join me in congratulating Mark on a very well deserved promotion!
Vice President Of Operations.

|03/31/2015||Concorde vote||Fabien Bergeret|
As some of you may know a poll was posted in the AFVA Concorde forum channel a week ago, we have received some great feedback already and hopefully this inspires some of you to post your own. The point of the poll is to try and get as many pilots as possible learning the majestic yet daunting aircraft. I'm aware some pilots do not wish to take the Concorde rating at any stage but I ask all active pilots to vote even if there is no interest as it will help your fellow pilots learn the aircraft.
We want to make the Concorde program the best one in the virtual world and the is only possible through the immense power that is our pilots! I may not be able to get every pilot flying Concorde, but I would like everyone to a have a chance and this poll will give our pilots that choice!
I hope many of you consider voting and thank you in advance if you submit your input.
