2. When you accumulate 25 flying hours you will be promoted to First Officer rank, and so on.

1. Pilots are encouraged to obtain type rating for each aircraft type that they wish to operate. It is a simple test flight and details are given in the Check Flight Center.
2. There are two categories of aircraft type ratings, Co-pilot rating & Captain rating. Though it is not mandatory, it makes your virtual flying carrier more realistic as with the real world pilot licensing system.

Please note that we are not judging your flying with above ranking system & check flights. It is only to make your virtual flying carrier more realistic and authentic. We at ALK-VA truly hope that you will have a enjoyable time when trying out various check flight phases. We are always ready to help you out any difficulty that you may encounter.

OTHER QUERIES RECEIVED FROM OUR PILOTS

 

 

 

 

As an aviator you can find a way to control most these problems. During the flight always be prepared for unexpected. That is the main difference between routine airline flying and realistic ALK-VA flying. So test all your flying skills. If everything fails ask for help.

 

Note: If you faced any of the above situations, please indicate it in your Completed Flight Report. We will publish it (without your name if you wish) for the benefit of other pilots.

 

At ALK-VA ...

1. All your correspondence is handled by real people. We do not use automated replies, and you are not sending messages to machines. We personally attend to all your requests as we believe in the human touch.

2. We do not act like a big brother to scrutinize all your action because all our flying gears are not identical. FS flying is a hobby to you as well as to us. We trust that you will operate all flights as realistic and accurate as possible, within your capabilities.

3. Without your permission we do not reveal your personal and flying data to a third party.
