|05/28/2018||Air France/KLM Virtual Airline Operational Updates||Paul Hale|
Some operational changes have been made effective 28th May 2018, these are designed to relax the rules slightly, allow more freedom within our structure and ultimately gain us new pilots.
You will have already seen that a new NOTAM has been sent out updating our current charter policy.
In addition to this we have decided to relax the rules regarding which program new pilots can enter when first joining the airline.
Previously new pilots were automatically put into Stage 1 (ERJ190) or stage 2 (B738 and A320) programs and had to work through the ranks to reach and be able to fly stage 3,4 and 5 aircraft
Due to the many new payware aircraft that have been released in the past few months/years it has become a trend noticed online through various forums that many pilots simply put will not want to rise through the ranks, complete X amount of legs etc before flying their newly purchased payware aircraft with us.
Therefore effective immediately, entry into our airline can now be done via a number of different programs, Pilots can choose to join us and begin their careers in the following programs:
Stage 1 (ERJ190)
Stage 2 (B738, A320)
Stage 3 (A330, B707, DC-3)
Stage 4 (A340, B747, B777, B787)
The operational process will still be the same as before IE:
A pilot joins us and starts in the 747 program to allow them to enjoy their new PMDG 747, they then purchase the FSLabs A320 and Qualitywings 787, they would still have to request the A320 or 787 ratings and complete the A320 or 787 checkride before being able to fly those aircraft with us.
This rule simply changes the entry requirements so that pilots can fly their PMDG 747, 777 or QW787 with us from day one of joining.
Please share this news with everyone you know who is a flight simulation enthusiast , we will always welcome new pilots who previously may have overlooked us due to our old entry restrictions.
In addition to this, a new and up to date Pilots Manual is available for download here.
If you have any questions regarding these updates please do not hesitate to create a help desk ticket or email one of us directly.
Kind regards and blue skies!

|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!

|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.
