From the staff at VirualUA, we wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving and we are thankful for everyone of our pilots and staff members. Have some turkey tonight and have fun!
Have you seen our recent email? We released the details of our 5th annual Holiday event! In case you missed it here is the press release:
As promised in our last communication, we have been planning a winter event. This year is special to us, due to it being our 5th Annual Holiday Event. This year we will be flying onDecember 9th, 2017 from Denver (KDEN) to Anchorage (PANC). Departure time will be at 1700Z. Please log onto Discord about an hour early so we have time to get acclimated before leaving the gate. VATSIM staffing has already been coordinated with both ARTCC’s. We will be publishing a route closer to day of departure. We are thinking about doing Real Ops similar to what we did a couple years ago, however we would need to get volunteers to dispatch our aircraft.
The event is going to be CAT free, meaning you’re welcome to fly whatever you’d like. Keep in mind it is a bit of a longer flight. With that being said a CRJ700 probably isn’t going to get the job done.
Also, those that attend this years event have the chance to win a couple of different prizes, donated by our sponsors. We will also be giving out our yearly gifts to show our appreciation for everything you do for us. See you at our Winter Bash!
Strong Tailwinds and Blue Skies,
CAT Free is starting on Sunday November 19th and lasting until January 2nd 2018! Enjoy flying those heavies!
We are going to discontinue our Teamspeak 3 Server due to the lack of activity. If you will miss the TS3 server, DON’T WORRY! We have a Discord server that is similar to TS3. If you don’t know how to connect onto our Discord server go to your crew page, click “Discord” on the left tab bars. Then click “Connect” at the bottom of that page. It will either connect you to the online server or have you download the software.
This weeks Jumpseat Chatter has been released and it includes our new video, October stats and the announcement of when CAT Free will start!
Take our survey asking a few questions about the 747 event we had on Saturday and how we can improve our future events!

We have some new job opportunities at VirtualUA. The staff here encourage pilots who are interested in a staff position at Virtual United Social Club Inc. to look at the areas open. These areas include Social media, domicile managers and event coordinators. Please email HR at: [email protected] to schedule an interview.
We have your back Houston and Southern Texas! Stay strong!
Thank you for an August full of flying! We complete over 1,000 pireps, which is the most we’ve had throughout 2017! Stats will be out in a few days!
The technology department has just put around 3,000 regional routes including Skywest and GoJet routes! Get flying those new Aerosoft CRJs and have fun as we are still CAT Free until September!
