Platinum Airways urges its pilots to Stretch your legs


Platinum Airways, the very virtual Open Skies airline, is facing a sporty month of June. Urging its pilots to Stretch your legs, the Open Skies virtual airline’s Destination of the Week will visit four major sports events in North America and Europe.


June promises to be an excellent month for sports fanatics and Platinum Airways’ Destination of the Week will fly them to their destination. Stretch your legs kicks off with the Canadian Formula 1 Grand Prix, held at Montréal (CYUL) on 10 June. Next on the calendar is the US Golf Open in San Francisco (KSFO) from 14 to 17 June. From there, Platinum Airways’ Destination of the Week theme crosses the Atlantic, to witness the start of the Championships at Wimbledon on the outskirts of London (EGLL) (25 June to 8 July). Stretch your legs ends with the Euro 2012 soccer final in Kyiv (UKKK) on 1 July. Pilots are encouraged to … stretch their legs during their stay at the DOTW.


As per usual, all DOTW destinations will be accompanied with navigational charts, links to scenery files (FS9, FSX and X-Plane) and other aids. If only payware additional sceneries are on offer, Platinum Airways usually succeeds in negotiating favourable conditions for its members for the specific destination’s duration. Pilots visiting a current DOTW are rewarded with a 5% bonus. Past DOTW’s remain available to pilots through an archive system.


About Platinum Airways:

Keen to deliver on its mission to keep the fun in the hobby, Platinum Airways is probably the only virtual airline to combine an Open Skies policy, allowing its pilots to fly any mission of their choice with the aircraft of their choice at the time of their choice, with a strategic hub network. The carefully selected hubs, Newark (KEWR), Dallas-Fort Worth (KDFW), Vancouver (CYVR), Perth (YPPH) and Brussels (EBBR), should be attractive to a global membership. In addition, Platinum Airways offers its pilots an often cheeky Destination of the Week and Relief and Military Missions. Sticking to the KISS principle (Keep It Straight and Simple), Platinum Airways hosts an active forum and a screenshot of the week competition, with the winner providing the main picture on its home page for the next week.
