Mission Statement
 

> Virtual Eastern Airlines 1999-present

  8 years after Eastern Airlines ceased operations, the airline once again began flying, only this time on the internet.   Using Microsoft's famed Flight Simulator software, Perrin Arno created Virtual Eastern Airlines in 1999 to help preserve the spirit and memory of the largest domestic airline in the United States, and one of the largest airlines in the western hemisphere.

 
   After a rocky start, common with nearly all new virtual airlines, Virtual Eastern Airlines rose to prominence within the flight simulation and virtual airline hobby. Since then VEA has grown to posses one of the largest pilot bases and activity rates of any virtual airline, many pilots on the roster being former EAL employees.    Additionally VEA was one of the first virtual airline's to introduce its own pilot system (SystemOne Direct Access), which even today remains one of the most sophisticated and comprehensive of this type of system.
 

   Virtual Eastern Airlines has always had a high standard as a virtual airline.  The operating staff of VEA has included many of the major figures in the virtual airline and flight simulation hobby.  Innovation is also one of Virtual Eastern's keys, especially when it comes to the fleet of aircraft used with Microsoft's Flight Simulator.  Virtual Eastern has had close associations with the former Project Freeware group and presently maintains a close relationship with the Vista Liners group.  Additionally, VEA employes some of the top FS designers and artists to render our near perfect representation of Eastern Airlines' fleet of aircraft.
 

   Today Virtual Eastern Airlines remains a leading virtual airline.   With its commitment to a realistic, innovative, challenging, but most of all, fun atmosphere, Virtual Eastern every day offers its pilots something new, and will continue to do so.
