WHO WE ARE

AMBER AIRLINES further referred to as AMBER, is independent and free to use the association of individuals that provides services of the virtual airline to the virtual pilots. We are a community of pilots who love to fly. While we fully understand the place for “ultra-realistic” virtual airlines that require check rides, pilot exams, strict adherence to defined schedules, and aircraft assignments, we are not that type of VA. Turn on the computer, pick a flight, fly the flight plan, land well and file a PIREP; simple, fun, enjoyable.

Amber's main goal is to provide entertainment and education to its members.

You can download the application ACARS. If no serious incidents were made, pirep will be processed automatically. A list of incidents that require manual review by members of staff can be found here. Some incidents may require the pilot’s comment prior to manual validation. Flight hours are counted based on recorded flights.

OTHER USED THINGS

  • if ACARS crash during your flight then you can always file your PIREP manually.
  • There are no minimum amount of flight hours you need to do every month.
  • A day counts 24 hours, so since you fly in real-time 1x speed(no slew, or 2x or faster), you can not make than 24 hours a day flying. Changing SIMRATE / speeding is not allowed, if do so Pireps will be rejected and not count.

 

IVAO, VATSIM, FS CLOUD, OFFLINE, etc. - are here for You. If you like we can help you to get on with VATSIm

HAVE FUN AND WE WOULD ALSO STRONGLY ADVISE YOU TO TAKE SUFFICIENT SLEEP.
