  1. From the staff of the International Humanitarian Air Service: To start, we wish the Avsim community a Happy New Year! We are very excited and we hope everyone has another great year of flying ahead of them! We are welcoming new pilots into IHAS! The International Humanitarian Air Service is a Virtual Airline for aviation enthusiasts. The only virtual airline that seeks to provide global aid throughout the virtual skies, IHAS models the theme of a non-for-profit humanitarian air service, as well as the workings of the United Nations Humanitarian Air Service, and flies into various locations around the world that, in real life, are in desperate need of some form of aid. As said, we do regular, and fun events that model aid needed in real life. We have hubs based in New York, headquarters of the United Nations, and Geneva, headquarters of the WHO. Staff members are also looking into the expansion of hubs such as in Paris and San Francisco. We strive to look for the best pilots that are always up and favorable to challenges once presented immediately joining IHAS. One may join here: *Note that the website is temporary, IHAS staff is actively working on our official website!* If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reply here or contact us through the feedback page on our website Cheers

    Any VAs that accept off/unlisted airports?

    Check out We are a brand new VA (hence the temporary website) and rather unique in our approach. We are currently in the middle of a mission around Indonesia and there are almost no restrictions on when and where you can fly. We manually verify flights through our system right now so there will be no problems with airports not being accepted 😀 Cheers

    Recommendations for a VA

    Take a look at We are a brand new VA (hence the temporary website) and rather unique in our approach. I will warn you that we do require all flights to be on VATSIM and do not allow for time acceleration but I think we have a bunch of neat objectives that you would probably enjoy (including tours and missions) 😀 Cheers

    Yep. From what I've heard, it's something to do with the way google maps are encrypted or something like that.

    Around the World in a B737

    Ok, here is (yet another) adjustment to the route. We decided to take a little more time and cover each continent a little better.

    It seems to be a glitch with deskpilot. The doors were closed and armed and exterior views showed nothing abnormal with the doors... It quit doing it half way through the flight but I have no idea why... I was gonna mention this in my post earlier but I totally forgot

    Which SIM for an IFR simulator?

    If you are looking for a freeware weather engine to simulate real-world weather, I would highly recommend fsxwx: It seems fairly accurate to me and I cannot fly without it. However the weather is only real world and cannot be set to a custom minimums so it may not be entirely suitable for setting conditions to IMC whenever you want (unless you go to a place in the world where the conditions you desire really exist).

    Hello everyone, Unfortunately, we received no ATC during the flight (although ATL_CTR did come online about 1.5 hours after we landed ) Sorry for the long delay in uploading the photos from the first flight, but here they are! At the gate in TNCM: Pushing back from gate A1 and engine start: "Flaps set for takeoff, flight controls checked": Taxiing out to runway 10: Cleared for takeoff! Airborne (and just clearing the mountains )! More images in the next post... p.s. sorry but these are links only. I will try to embed future pics into their posts...

    Gonna try again! The route is slightly different from last time. TNCM DCT PJM B520 LARPP FRATT L451 ELMUC RENAH Y585 OMN J45 CRG LAIRI LARZZ SITTH1 KATL We will likely pass through some isolated thunderstorms en route and expirience some pretty strong crosswinds, however, it should be smooth sailing after that Feel free to track us on VATSIM. The callsign is DAL919.
