Welcome to the new UK virtual! We have been hard at work in the background over the last six months to release what we have today, continue reading below to find out the changes and new releases !
When we started as prop hops seven years ago, UK virtual has gone through a few logo changes and designs. We are proud to present to you our new logo, along with a slight name change from UKVirtual to UK virtual. Our more updated, modern look is reflected on the website, tour awards, tour logos, banners and online presence.
With the logo change we have a brand new tracker for you to download. Please do this before your next flight so the Flight Dispatch Centre works.
UK virtual is now proud to offer 107 Real world airlines and 25,000 schedules along with charter mode. Our Connected Continents Project continues to work away in the background with Europe and South America Already covered.
Remember The Flying Club ?
The Flying Club was an in house virtual airline set up by Ryan and Rob back in 2017, launching on UK virtual in January 2018. To date TFC has completed 705 flights across Europe.
We have sent our aircraft into the virtual hanger for a splash of paint, and we are pleased to present to you our UK virtual Airline. Offering fictional routes from five bases in the United Kingdom using the Dash 8, B738, B747 and A320. This livery can also be used on any charter flight. Take a look at the airline here: https://www.ukvirtual.co.uk/index.php/ukvair/
Change to Vatsim Rules
We have changed the vatsim rules so you are now able to fly any callsign you wish. However if you are flying online using the UK virtual Livery you must use your Union Callsign and number for these flights. Please remember to include UK virtual in your remarks for all online flights.
This isn’t possible without you
All of the above has been paid for by the community fund, and it was not cheap. We want to give back to any members who donate to UK virtual so we have introduced a tier system with benefits. Our supporters will be entered into a quarterly prize draw to win Aviation/ Flight sim related products. You can find out more on our support us page: https://www.ukvirtual.co.uk/index.php/communityfund
UK virtual is and will stay as a free to use virtual airline, the above is an option for anyone who wishes to donate to us.
We hope you enjoy the new changes to UK virtual, any questions please contact us on the support channel or [email protected]
On a side note Ryan will be stepping away for a few weeks for personal commitments so from Tuesday 21st May – 31st May please use the above channels for support, any emails will be forwarded to either mike or tony.
