At Virtual Eastern
Airlines we believe that every person should be able to join our virtual airline.
Therefore, we do not have any membership 'requirements'. However, pursuant to
Federal U.S. law, we CAN NOT accept applications from persons under 13 years of age unless
we receive a letter of parental consent.
While we do not have any specific
membership requirements, it is recommended that all members use Microsoft's Flight
Simulator: A Century of Flight (FS2004). However, we can and will make arrangements
fro members who use an earlier version of flightsim, or who use a different program.
Pilots joining VEA with previous virtual
airline experience will be allowed to transfer half of all verifiable hours.
In order to request transfer hours, please email management or submit a request via
the pilot system. A pilot MUST be able to provide a web-link or contact email by
which VEA can verify the hours, otherwise they will not be honored here.
When joining, a pilot must select a
domicile or Hub. Bear in mind that all of the domiciles at VEA are different, and
depending on your personal preferences with flight simulation and virtual airlines, some
domiciles may be better suited to you than others. Before choosing one take some
time to read through the domicile web pages accessed through the 'Operations' link.
All new pilots not transfering hours from
another VA will automatically be assigned to the roster as a 'Trainee' with 0 points and 0
hours. A Trainee may only fly aircraft and routes applying to the various Eastern
Express carriers at the domicile. As more flights are flown, and more points
accumulated, opportunities for promotion will be made available. For more
information, visit the 'Promotion' tab in the Pilot Handbook.
