VA Down Grade

Good Day All

After much consideration I've decided to scale down on the number of airlines we operate and so the number of aircraft too.

Some of these will be redeployed with the remaining airlines however.

Airlines to be canceled will be Airwego Gatwick & Flyglobespam, All aircraft from these airlines will likely be stood down.

Caal Airways will take over a number of these routes and hubs.

The other Airline under consideration is Express India.

There will also be a reduction in the number of aircraft operated across the board for example aircraft like the Antononov 124's and Boeing C-17's. Looking to go for the more convenstional type frighters, like MD-11's, Triple 7's, Airbus A330 and Boeing 747-400's.

Other passenger aircraft types will also be reviewed at a later stage.

The reason's for this downscale are as follows.


After I lost all my aircraft repaints and other data I now face the prospect of doing over 200 plus repaints, I've lost 10 years worth of work, and there is no way I can ever recover all that.


Having 200 plus aircraft for only 24 pilots does seem over the top. and as only a few of these 24 pilots fly on a reugular basis.

we could quite easily get by with a fleet of just 30 or 40 aircraft.

How these will be reduced will be decided at a later stage.

Thank You to those who have shown continued support for the VA, Your time and efforts are much appreciated.
