You must be able to take-off, navigate a course, and land successfully. If you have problems with any of these, you should review the lessons offered
in your flight simulator. Note that we offer advanced training, which is available to all members. We can help you with advanced navigation, making your own flight plans, SID/STAR navigation, etc. We can help you with
advanced techniques of flying and navigation through our forum or one-on-one training online.

Your respect for other pilots and members in our forum and online communications and forums is mandatory. There will be no bashing of other members, our VA or other VAs within our forum or elsewhere.
You must file a Pilot Report (PIREP) of either 2 or 4 legs at least once every two weeks to be considered active once assigned to a hub. New pilots will automatically be assigned to our training hub at Kansas City International (KMCI) where you must submit a PIREP at least once a week to remain active.
You will be required to download and install Virtual Airlines Financial Systems. (VAFS) This is our pilot reporting system. All flights assigned to you must be flown using this stand-alone program. The program is free to all EAV pilots.
Upon submitting your pilot application, you will receive instructions for an initial training flight. You must fly this flight and submit your hours
before your application will be considered.
Upon receiving your hours, Senior Management will review your application. If your application is accepted, we will contact you by
email, at which time you will receive your pilot ID and an explanation of how to activate your VAFS Account. Access to the website and information on how to connect to our voice server will be emailed separately. In
addition, you will be given your first official assignment.
Each pilot must file a PIREP at least once every two weeks to be considered active once assigned to a hub. You will receive a reminder email if you become inactive. Unresponsive Pilots will be removed from the EAV roster within 48 hours of the reminder email.
