Transfer of Hours
We do not set restrictions on aircraft types by Pilot rank; therefore, we do not transfer hours from another Virtual Airline or VATSIM.
Everyone begins their career with us as a Flight Student with 00:00 hours of flight time.
You selected your Home Airport ('Home') when you completed our Application Form.
It’s from this assigned location you must make your first Cargo or Scheduled flight. Thereafter, your assigned Home Airport doesn’t factor into your flying unless that’s what you want to do.
If your Home does not have any Cargo or Scheduled flights and you desire to fly them, you must enable Worldwide Persistence (WWP) to fly to an airport that does have Cargo and/or Scheduled flights. Learn more about WWP here.
For Charter operations, your Home will not be a factor at all.
If you wish to change your Home, you can do so on your own anytime – and as many times as you desire; however, be aware of the fact there is a fee involved each time you do so.
That fee will be deducted from your Ledger (Pilot Profile > Ledger).
As long as your balance is greater than the fee for the Transfer, your Home will be changed.
If your Ledger balance is less than the fee for the Transfer, your Home will not be changed..
To initiate a Home Transfer, go to Settings > My Information > My Home in the Navigation Bar of the Crew Operations website. Follow the prompts.

Pilot Status & Flight Requirements
Every Company Pilot maintains a status based on the frequency of their flight activity.
|New Hire||Must complete first flight within fourteen (14) days after receiving Acceptance Email.|
|Active||At least one (1) completed flight/PIREP in the past thirty (30) days.|
|On Leave||No completed flight/PIREP in the past thirty (30) days.|
|Retired||No completed flight/PIREP in the past ninety (90) days.|
A PIREP is, quite simply, a Pilot Report. It contains digital data about the flight you flew and completed. After processing that data in our automated, proprietary system, it’s immediately filed, at which time it’s also added to your Pilot Logbook and is available for review.
You'll be placed On Leave if you do not complete at least one (1) flight every thirty (30) days.
You'll be Retired if you do not complete at least one (1) flight every ninety (90) days.
We do not remove Pilot records, unless it is requested by the pilot.
If you wish to have your data removed from our system, please email email@example.com.
If you were:
|... for failing to complete one (1) flight every ninety (90) days – or by personal request – you may be rehired. Your statistics will be restored to the values they were at the time you were Retired.||... you will not be rehired.|
To be considered for rehire, post your request in the #support channel in the Company Discord – or – submit a Help Ticket.
You can be terminated if it's determined you've failed to adhere to our:
- Code of Conduct; and/or,
- Policies and Procedures, along with those that may be communicated and/or distributed separately.
If you think you were unjustly terminated, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
