As English is the international language of the aviation industry, we require applicants to harbor a reasonable level of written and spoken English. Additionally, a basic knowledge of flying in a simulator is required.
We expect pilots to be familiar with the basics of aviation, including but not limited to:
- Basic Radio Telephony
- IFR Navigation
- Reading and understanding terminal and en route charts
We understand that not all pilots may be proficient in the basics yet, and that describes you, do not worry. We recommend you visit our partner: Flight Sim Academy for additional training before registering.
While we are working hard on adding support for X-Plane, at the moment, we only support Microsoft’s Flight Simulator (FS2004, FSX, or FSX:SE) and Lockheed Martin’s Prepar3D (all versions).
Our flight tracking and flight report submission tool is ACARSng, which requires Microsoft Windows Vista or newer. All flights must be recorded using ACARSng.
Pilots are expected to complete one flight every 30 days to remain active. Inactive pilots may continue to log in, use the Crew Center and participate in the community, however, inactive pilots may be hidden from statistics and pilot rosters. Inactive pilots may become fully active again by completing a flight.
