I have a disclaimer, for any site admins or moderators who may come across and read this thread: THIS ISN'T HERE FOR RECRUITING PURPOSES!

Obviously, for likely rules within the Airline Empires community, I will not be using the forums or chat to recruit members. Nor will I allow any of our current members to do so either. As ironic as that may seem with a post titled "Official Skyway Virtual Thread". It's was never the intention, nor will it ever be the intention, for Skyway to persuade AE members to join, or to sway them away from Airline Empires through intentional persuasion to join. We graciously accept any help from those who come forward on their own accord and ask to fly or help out, but we will never ask of any individual ourselves if they would like to fly for the virtual airline. There are places for us to recruit pilots, and the AE forum is not one of them.

 

Long story short: Please see and think of this thread as a Press Release for Skyway VA, and not as a recruitment depot. 

 

 

 

OFFICIAL SKYWAY VIRTUAL THREAD

 

UPDATE - 4/3/17

Right now, things are looking good for the launch of Skyway as a virtual airline. As for the launch itself, we don't have an official date. I originally said late April-early May, but due to time constrictions and college work, this launch date might be somewhere in mid to late May, depending on how quickly the website is built, ACARS systems are setup, manuals are written and the fleet painted.

 

 

Skyway's fleet consists of primarily payware products from a wide variety of product developers, although we do allow pilots to use freeware models of the same planes if they can't afford the products, as owning them is not mandatory. Being that Skyway is set to operate on both FSX: Steam Edition and P3D, we've handpicked the majority of our fleet to be cross compatible with both simulation platforms. 

 

We use the following products:

 

PMDG

  • 737-700NGX
  • 737-800NGX
  • 777-200
  • 777-300ER
  • 747-400 v3

QualityWings

  • Boeing 757-200
  • Boeing 757-300

Captain Sim

  • Boeing 767-300 *Currently FSX only*

Aerosoft

  • Airbus A319X and A320X
  • Airbus A330X (upon product release)

Majestic Software

  • Bombardier Dash-8-Q400

 

 

We currently plan on starting operations at the following 5 hubs:

 

(KBOS) - Logan Int'l Airport

(KMCO) - Orlando Int'l Airport

(KSFO) - San Francisco Int'l Airport

(KORD) - Chicago O'Hare Int'l Airport

(EGLL) - London Heathrow Int'l Airport

 

 

 

Aside from all of this information, I'll be regularly updating this thread with any news regarding Skyway's VA progress :D.

 

-Adam

UPDATE 4/7/17

 

I'm currently in the works of getting Skyway's Cargo/Freight division setup through Air Hauler 2. When finished, our members will be able to start flying for the VA! Albeit, through AH2, and not an official ACARS program. We plan on implementing cargo routing into our VA upon our official launch. However, if we are unable to make this happen by limitations, then we will keep this a feature of Air Hauler 2 only, and allow future pilots an opportunity to choose whether they would like to fly Pax routes through Skyway and Skyway International via ACARS system, or through Skyway Cargo via Air Hauler 2.

 

We'll keep you posted on newer details to come.

UPDATE 6/12/17

 

Some bad news. Due to my new work schedule, and a current inability to obtain necessary resources for the VA, Skyway VA has been canceled.
