SilkAir Boeing 737 MAX 8 Delivery Flight

Recommended Posts

Mod note: Kindly move this to a more appropriate board if deemed necessary. I thought it didn't fit in virtual airlines as this event is open to all on the VATSIM network and not a private VA affair.


21-22 October 2017, Saturday and Sunday, 1100Z to 1500Z+1 (including 1 overnight leg)

  • Basic coverage at all event airports: KBFI, PHNG, PGUM, WSSS
  • RSVP at
  • Charts, scenery and planning data (including route files for payware aircraft) will be provided at least 48 hours before event start

Bring our newest bird home! Singapore Virtual Airlines Group welcomes 9V-MBA, the Boeing 737 MAX 8 to its SilkAir fleet. Embark on an adventure with fellow pilots hopping across the Pacific, calling at Hawaii and Guam along the way.

This is an ambitious event that will span the weekend and bonuses will be rewarded accordingly. While all effort has been made in consideration of all timezones, due to the complexities of the route and ATC availability, priority has been given to local time (GMT+8). Regardless, all SVAG pilots who complete the route 48 hours after event end will still be awarded.

As VAFS does not yet have the 737 MAX 8, we will be speccing the route (and future MAX 8 routes served by SilkAir) with the 737-900 instead as it is the only equivalent aircraft with adequate range.

Professional flight planning data and route files will be provided at least 48 hours before event start, so don't worry even if you're new or unfamiliar with the region. Join us if you can even if it's just for a leg or two. (Hint: PHNG has incredible freeware scenery).
