Virtual Associate Program now available
The Virtual Airline Associate program (VAA) is now available for those VAs that would like to be recognized by VATSIM but do not meet all of the requirements to be a Partner. Most VAs are not able to become Partners due to being unable to meet the minimum roster requirement of 20 pilots of whom 15 have flown a flight online for the VA within the preceding 90 days, or the VA has not been in existence for the 6 month minimum time in order to be considered. By enrolling in the VAA, a virtual airline will be able to have a listing so that prospective pilots are able to learn about the VA. The VA will be given periodic audits to determine if it is progressing toward full Partner status and guidance to help grow the VA will be available if requested. Due to a technical glitch the application page indicates that the VAA program is "Coming Soon", however, a VA wishing to join can click the link stating they meet the requirements to be a Partner and then choose Virtual Airline Associate from the category list.
Audit Managers Needed
The VA Department utilizes a team of audit managers to conduct periodic audits of our current partner VAs to verify if they remain in compliance with the requirements to be a Partner. At this time we have vacancies for audit managers and invite anyone interested in the position to submit an application. The minimum information needed would be Name/VATSIM ID/VATSIM experience. Letters of interest can be sent to me at
