  2. Hi, I'm a bit confused. I am used to flying the B738, but when I looked at ranks, it said I'm a first officer, so until I have 10 flight hours, I'm limited to ERJ, CRJ, Turboprop, and Embraer 170/175. However, I transferred 36 hours of VATSIM flights, and it doesn't show up on my profile. To get to the Captain rank, do I have to have 10 hours in those aircraft AFTER joining virtual UA, or is that a bug and ignore that?

    Introducing SKYNET & SKYLINK

    We at Virtual United Social Club are thrilled to announce that we have been working on a new platform for planning your flights, tracking them and logging them. This new platform will both replace our entire operations system including our ACARS. Through both of these programs, flying with us will be easier than ever. Our new platform SKYNET will replace our current Airline Management System on the web. SKYNET will be a ‘one stop shop’ for all of your needs. From here you will be able to manage your account, book flights, review your flight history, and see some of the statistics from all your past flights. Not only that but it will also encompass our new support system. Whether you need assistance with something related to Technology, Flight Operations, or any other department we have, you will be able to submit a ticket and receive assistance from the appropriate folks. Just like any support system you may have used in the past, you will be able to view the status of your requests and any actions on it as well! While our current ACARS client vUACARS has served us well for some time now, we’ve decided with a new web-platform there was an opportunity to do it even better. Introducing SKYLINK, our new ACARS client that will make starting, tracking, and logging your flights with us easier than ever. One thing we knew we wanted to accomplish was to make your interaction with the program as minimal as possible so you could get to what you really want to do, fly! With that goal in mind, we have built the client from the ground up, to be as simple and minimal as possible. There is so much more to this new platform we are looking forward to sharing with everyone. But for now, we wanted to give you some of the broad strokes of the changes in store! We look forward to sharing more specific glimpses on each platform in upcoming blog posts. With those we will give you an inside look at them, showcasing some of the key features of the new, upcoming platform. Giovanni Medrano, Keith Lovell, and Mike Ortins Vice President of Technology, Directors of ACARS, and Director of Technology Communications [email protected]
  4. I am really enjoying this vAirline! The tools are easy to find and use. The response time for PIREP approvals and questions and concerns is next to none!

    Virtual United Social Club Incorporated had an exciting year with so many accomplishments. As we start looking at 2019, we wanted to provide our community with some insight to what 2019 will look like for us here at Virtual United Social Club. Community Relations and Partners In 2019 we look forward to maintaining our relationship with our current sponsors as well as building new ties with potential partners and sponsors. One way we plan on doing this is by attending Flight Sim Expo in Orlando, Florida. There we will be able to meet in person and discuss many possibilities for 2019 and years to come. We also look forward to our larger events next year. Our 7th annual Birthday Bash, our summer event, and our winter event. Stay tuned for more information! Technology Our technology team here at vUSCI looks forward to updating our schedules quarterly and to the continued enhancements to our technological platforms. Community Operations In 2019 we look forward to launching our new training program which will include Vatsim ATO. Stay tuned for more exciting information to come. Staff Relations This January we will be hosting a staff retreat at Washington Dulles International Airport. This retreat will give our staff the opportunity to collaborate on upcoming initiatives as well provide the opportunity for team building exercises. 2019 is shaping up to be another outstanding year for us here at vUSCI!

    vUSCI 2018 Organizational Recap

    As we prepare to enter 2019, it is time for our annual recap. 2018 was an excellent year for us here at Virtual United Social Club! We re-launched our crew communications system (CCS). Members now can collaborate, share screenshots, download necessary files, and much more. If you are not already on CCS, click here to sign up. vUSCI Staff team attended our first flight simulation conference in Dallas, Texas. We had the opportunity to participate, collaborate with other flight enthusiasm at the annual FlightsimCon. While there, we were also able to host our first staff conference. This enhanced and aided our team building efforts. vUSCI renewed our legal agreement with United Airlines, Inc. in August 2018. This has allowed us to have a working relationship with the airline. Our training department has been redeveloped, and we are looking at a first-quarter launch in 2019. This will allow us here at vUSCI to enhance our community member experience. We also hosted three major online events this year: vUSCI Birthday Bash, Fun in the Sun, and most recently Home for the Holidays. They were all a success, and we look forward to next year’s big events! We continued to build relationships with our Partners and Sponsors. We also added ORBX and SkyBlue radio to our partner's list! To see all of our partners and sponsors as well get links to all of their websites, click here. New community competitions were also launched in 2018. These include our monthly screenshot competition and hub competition. These have helped to grow the relationship and community feeling amongst our members. We look forward to continuing these initiatives in 2019. To complement the monthly competitions, we also started monthly events. These included the NFL charter flights and tours. We look forward to expanding upon these in 2019. Fun Fact, Saturday on Instagram and Snapchat, was also started. It is our weekly trivia game that helps to engage our members. We look forward to continuing the game throughout 2019. Our flight schedules were even updated to reflect the real world operations of United Airlines. This has provided our pilots with the most realistic experience possible. If you notice a route is missing. Don’t hesitate to post it in the missing route request form on CCS. Click here for the direct link. As of today, we have: 438 Total Pilots 11,478 Total Flight in 2018 41,423 Total Hours in 2018 These numbers are just amazing. We want to thank every one of our members for making 2018 the success it was. We cannot wait to see what 2019 has in store for us!
  12. A Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!

  15. Happy Holidays Captains! As we are rapidly approaching the end of this year, and are well within the holiday season, we at vUSCI would like to take a few moments out of our days to send you a special holiday greeting. This year has flown by and it has been amazing. During this holiday season, we hope you take time to enjoy the company of family and friends and get some well-deserved rest and relaxation. (Don’t forget all the good food!) As we all finish out this year, we hope you have a happy, healthy, and safe holiday! As a special thank you, and a little holiday surprise, you will find a “Holiday Package” located in our downloads section on the Crew Communications System (CCS). Inside you will find a custom splash screen for Prepar3D, a loading screen for X-Plane (instructions included for both), our Holiday Card, and last (but definitely not least) a 20% off voucher for the REX store! Have a wonderful holiday season, Virtual United Social Club, Inc.
