A special thanks to @Captain_Matt for his assistance in designing our new logo! Doesn't it just look snazzy ;)
I applied for FVA pilot and I got 25 out 30 on the test. I have comments regarding the first and second question;
• I think the pattern is not when aircraft do touch and goes because pattern is not only for that, it also for take off and landing as well as holding short and whether pattern accepted or not. Even for the wind directions either calmed or crosswind.
What I beleive a touch and goes is one of the Runway Pattern.
• When ATC is given a command to go arround while you are on short final Runway, you supposed to pull-up and annouce to go arround?! This question really confused me because you already annouced to go arround why you do annoucing to the ATC again, is this part of dublicated messages?
To pull-up yeah that's true, but secondly to annouce! That was really confusing and that why I put 360 and continue inbound, however.
I think questions need to Re-paraphrased and this is my opinions.
Thank you very much and I am so happy to fly with you my dear friends.
When announcing pattern it solely means touch and goes. Remember this is on takeoff. You announce your intentions as pattern work, you are not cleared to depart the airspace.
When a controller tells you to go around you go around. No ifs it's or buts. It's a solid rule. So saying that you'll just complete a 360 and then continue inbound isn't exactly the answer we were looking for ;)
You have been invited into our slack. Welcome aboard.
Proud to release our first event recap in a good long while. Thanks to @Tecnam2TA for filming this for us. That nice music just adds a subtle undeniable flavor ;)

Ladies and gents of the forums,
I'd like to apologize for this inconvenience upcoming. For the next 7 days, FVA and FVE will not be accepting any pilot applications. This is solely my choice. I cannot explain why but I am temporarily closing applications. They will be reopened in exactly one week from now. We hope you can understand as much as possible that this is something we have to act on.

Hope everything is ok whatever the situation may be. 👍🏼
Frontier Virtual Airlines has officially reopened its application process. We'd like to thank all individuals who held off for their patience. We hope this inconvenience won't tarnish from the fun of being an FVA family member :)!

How are y'all? I'm just giving out some weekly information in case you are looking at joining FVA. Do enjoy.
The 1st Purge- Lately we have been seeing many pilots go from active to inactive, reducing our numbers from 70 active pilots to 50 active pilots. Now you may be wondering "well why do you have to disable their accounts? 70 accounts in one slack is impressive." And the reason is just the opposite that. An airline or lack with over 70 accounts but only 20 roughly commenting every single day looks very inactive. So with the help and backing of my staff, FVA is entering what I have so dubbed "The Purge".
Every day of this week until this Saturday, every single account within the FVA slack is being checked at very carefully. If you are planning on joining soon, we recommend you think carefully as new pilots will be expected to maintain a certain quota of activity
Due to my inability to edit this thread anymore, I've gotten in contact with moderators and I'm hoping to get it closed and open a new thread within a day or so. So this is probably one of the last posts here.
Our upcoming event, that is now delayed till May 21st due to Mother's Day withholding attendance yesterday.
Feel free to sign up. It's going to be a relaxing flight in the warm Florida coastline.
Southwest Virtual and Frontier Expressways:
Due to a disagreement between myself and our website designer who also runs SWV, SWV has politely asked to withdraw their contract with FVE in terms of bookings. FVA will now take 100% control over our subsidiary's methods of booking flights. For more information, you will be able to see our....read below as it makes a big announcement ;)
