1  What is a Virtual Airline?

A virtual airline is a concept developed in the early 1990's. Virtual Airlines provide members with a structured environment to maximize the enjoyment from their flight simulator. Instead of random roaming around the sky, a virtual airline (or VA) provides set assignments or routes to fly, and a set career progression. The airline keeps track of a pilots career and assigns flights based on the experience or rank of the pilot.

The member should see the airline as a 'simulated' computer airline. The pilots responsibility is the same as that of a normal pilot. The safety and comfort of their passengers is paramount. There is no room for 'aerobatics' or 'cowboys'.

Virtual Norwegian Aeroclub simply provide a departure and destination airport and leave the rest for the pilot. The pilot must then plan the flight according to the current conditions the flight will be assigned.

2  What is Virtual Norwegian Aeroclub?

Virtual Norwegian Aeroclub is a virtual aeroclub specifically created for operations within Norway. Assignments are domestic flights in Norway as well as international flights using Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004, Flight Simulator X or P3D. Virtual Norwegian Aeroclub started it's operations in october 2013. Virtual Norwegian Aeroclub is founded by Leif-Rune Kristiansen.


3  Virtual Airline System

Virtual Norwegian Aeroclub is based on the IPS- The integrated Pirep System, that work for both online and offline flying.
IPS stands for Intergrated PIREP System and makes it possible for you not to have ANY logging software on your computer, everything will go automatically! What this system does is scanning the online network servers (IVAO and VATSIM) for pilots flying. If you are flying at one of these networks it automatically starts logging your flight. Once you have arrived at your destination it completes your PIREP and sends it to our system. This means you will not have to think about any logging or PIREPs while flying. IPS also works if you are unable to fly online on IVAO or VATSIM, but you will then need our VNCAcars-client for logging the flight.


3.1 Flying online on VATSIM or IVAO
- When you fly online on VATSIM or IVAO you don`t need to use the VNCAcars-client.
- Remember to BOOK the flight in VNC Schedule or VNC Tour before you file your flightplan on VATSIM or IVAO.
- Important: You must use your callsign VNCxxx when filling the flightplan on Vatsim or Ivao. 
- IPS is  logging the Booked flights automatic when you are flying online on VATSIM or IVAO.

3.2 Flying offline (not on Vatsim or Ivao)
- When you  fly offline you need to BOOK the flight on our schedule or tour, and load the flight in VNCAcars-client

4  Must all flights be flown online?

NO, but the VNCAcars-client program must be connected to the server during the flight, therefore all routes have to be flown online.

Note: To add more realism to your flights, we highly recommend to join the VATSIM - (Virtual Air Traffic Simulation Network) or IVAO (International Virtual Aviation Organisation). When connected to VATSIM using either the SquawkBox,FSInn,vPilot, or to IVAO using the IVAP client , you will be able to connect to  ATC units as well as observe other traffic in realltime. Virtual Norwegian Aeroclub highly recommend to use the VATSIM / IVAO network.
