|05/11/2018||Widerøe Schedule Update||Silvian Baltac|
I am pleased to announce the addition of 210 unique flight routes serving 46 Norwegian airports. This is due to the recent codeshare of KLM with Widerøe. Combine these flights with the recent release of Orbx Norway scenery and you will have some great scenic flights in a variety of different aircraft types! However, I encourage you to enjoy those flights responsibly as many airports feature very short and narrow runways (in some case below 3,000 feet). It is thus crucial that aircraft larger than the DHC-8 / ATR-72 are not used in and out of airports with runways shorter than 5,000 feet as any violation may compromise the safety of the flight and could result in the PIREP being held and possibly rejected.
Enjoy the new addition and stay tuned for more Operations updates.
Executive Vice President of Operations
|02/23/2018||Various Airline News||Paul Hale|
We want to update you on some important staff changes within the AFVA staff structure and also the announcement of the closing of one of our programs.
A320 Assistant Chief pilot:
We received a higher than normal amount of applications for this position and all candidates were extremely strong and had some excellent merit points to join our staff, thank you to all that applied for the position and we sincerely hope the fact that you were not successful on this occasion will not stop you applying for future positions. After some excellent interviews and a really difficult decision we have selected our candidate.
Please join me in congratulating Conner Pierce into his new staff role as A320 Assistant chief pilot, an extremely well deserved promotion.
Boeing 767 Program:
This program will be discontinued with immediate effect due to the fact that neither Air France or KLM or many of our code shares fly the 767 as a primary aircraft any longer.
Boeing 707 program
Due to the retirement of the 767 program, Its Chief Pilot Kalev Kadek has been reassigned to the Historical Boeing 707 Program as Chief Pilot. Silvian Baltac stands down as temporary B707 Chief Pilot to concentrate solely on his senior staff duties. Any active pilots in the 767 program, please contact myself or Silvian and we will transfer you to a program of your choice that you are qualified and rated to be in.
Please welcome aboard Ethan Fortier as our new DC-3 Chief Pilot, Ethan has been working alongside current staff in recent months, updating manuals and grading PIREP's to help out existing staff members, With Silvian, as mentioned above stepping away from acting Historical Chief Pilot duties to concentrate solely on Senior Staff duties it was a natural choice for Ethan to gain promotion and recognition for the hard work he has done behind the scenes.
Congratulations to Conner and Ethan on their new positions and Kalev for his inter-airline promotion!

Assistant Vice President Of Human Resources.
|01/17/2018||Changes to AFVA Staff||Silvian Baltac|
It is with a heavy heart that the Senior Staff of Air France / KLM announce the resignation of Serge Nanovsky as Chief Pilot of the A320 program and Assistant Director of Human Resources. Serge submitted his resignation due to significant work pressures and felt that he did not have the time to commit to AF/KLM VA at the levels required.
This entails a few changes to the AFVA Staff structure:
- Ben Maskell, the current A320 Assistant Chief Pilot, will replace Serge as Chief Pilot. As a result we will soon be recruiting for a new A320 ACP, so stayed tuned for the job posting and apply!
- Paul Hale will leave the A330 program and will be assisting Fabian as our new Assistant Vice-President of Human Resources.
- Teodor Negru, our Director of Documentation, has accepted to take up the responsibility of leading the A330 Program as Chief Pilot whilst remaining in charge of our documentation.
Please join me in thanking Serge for his contributions during his time as A320 Chief Pilot. Congratulations to everyone on these well-deserved promotions!
Executive Vice-President of Operations
|10/09/2016||Under African Skies||Brian Hankey|
|Thanks to the hard work of Marcel Durieux, your 737 ACP, we have put together a new accomplishment for you to go get... Under African Skies. This accomplishment covers the 50 capitals that we serve in Africa. The cities are as follows: Algiers, Luanda, Cotonou, Ouagadougou, Bujumbura, Douala, Sal Island, Bangui, N'Djamena, Moroni, Brazzaville, Abidjan, Djibouti, Kinshasa, Cairo, Asmara, Addis Ababa, Libreville, Banjul, Accra, Conakry, Bissau, Nairobi, Monrovia, Tripoli, Antananarivo, Lilongwe, Bamako, Nouakchott, Port Louis, Casablanca, Lumbo, Windhoek, Niamey, Kano, Kigali, Cape Town, Juba, Sao Tome Ilse, Dakar, Maye Island, Freetown, Mogadishu, Khartoum, Kilimanjaro, Lome, Tunis, Entebbe, Lusaka, Harare.
You will notice that for some they are simply the main accessible airport in the country (like Casablanca), some (such as Kilimanjaro and Cape Town) were chosen for the nice surrounding scenery.
As of today, 6 pilots have achieved this accomplishment.
Good Luck and Have fun!
