Pilot Profile – Settings > Patreon
Similar to donations, becoming a Patreon is not mandatory nor expected for Walker pilots. However, it’s an option for one to make a recurring financial contribution to support Airline operations (servers and service providers), enhancements and improvements (modules, functionality, liveries, etc.) – or in any other way the Business Office determines is appropriate and necessary for support of the airline and its pilots.
The Walker Patreon program is another way for pilots to financially support the company. There are 2 tiers of support that you may choose from.
If you wish to support the company but do not want a recurring charge, you may do so with a donation.
|Tier||Cost (excl. VAT)||Benefits|
|Freedom of Livery||$5.00||
Freedom of Livery - Walker Events
Failure to follow below will result in PIREP rejection and forfeiture of all hours and points earned, not just the double multiplier from the event.
As noted above, Freedom of Livery benefits (use of any livery/callsign) does not apply when flying Walker Events. This is to continue to represent the company in these events, particularly during large scale ones such as Cross the Pond.
Outside of flight bids done under the events module, flights (be it online or offline) may be recorded even if using other liveries or callsigns.
