I have been around a few VA's in the past 8 years, but I must say that I am very impressed with aavirtual.net. So what makes this VA so appealing to me? Well I look for a balance of flexibility and realism. I do not want to come in and be able to fly everywhere and everything. However, out of the box as a commuter pilot I was able to fly my PMDG 737. Here are some other great points that this VA has, many of which other have, but I feel aavirtual.net does better: 1. The website is gorgeous, and resembles the reall AA.com 2. smartCARS is very well done, incorporating flight attendant instructions etc. You can even modify what they say and import your own .wav files if you know what you are doing 3. They have landing restrictions -650fpm. You just can't belly flop, but at -650fpm it is pretty easy to stay under that 4. They are very active. They plan regular flights on VATSIM, many that are coordinated with ATC to get full coverage 5. You get virtual pay that can be used in the store. Inlike other airlines that you buy fake houses with, you buy useful things (ex: Approve a denied PIREP) There are many more great things about this VA, but you can find them out for yourself. I do not work for aavirtual.net, just fly. I just wanted to spread the word on how much I am impressed. So if you are looking for a VA, check this one out!
