Re: YSFHQ Flight Logging - All VA managers and pilots please comment

I'd seriously consider joining a VA if something like this was put in place. When the first one came out with certification, VAs were extremely popular and activity was huge. Hell, even VAs were starting their own servers! I don't want to start any rumors or anything, but I heard someone picked up ...

Re: Airline made of fighters?

This is YSFlight. You can do whatever you want!

My only word of advice/caution is that your fleet will be easily mistaken for active military aircraft and will likely be targeted. Make sure your passengers are up for a good dogfight, and be sure to keep the rules of engagement in mind.

Re: YMML ATC frequency hijacked by impostor

I heard about this. I do wish the media would stop calling it a "hacking"... all you need is a decent handheld aviation radio and the cajones to try it. But yeah, this guy needs to get the max. They should probably also rack up more charges against him based simply on the number of people endangered...

Re: Aviation Photos/Videos

It will feel different, especially on takeoff and landing. In the air, you might not even notice unless you do maneuvers. How long was the flight? Usually you can't even get 4 people (kids are an exception) in the plane without going over limits in the 172. It was just over 1 hour (I had about 30 m...

Re: Aviation Photos/Videos

@wingsfan99 Did it feel as you expected my friend?The handling and the exhilaration I mean.Or was this not the first time? This was the first time. It felt almost exactly how I expected, except that I didn't expect quite as much resistance and stability in the yoke. We had two passengers (my dad an...

Quick Poll Regarding ATC Services

Hello all!

I'm looking to get back into YS and my old home, the Civilian subforum :D I just wanted to get a read on the community and figure out what people are looking for nowadays. The poll runs for 7 days and you can choose up to 3 options.

Ed Force One (Iron Maiden) Repaired

I noticed another topic about Ed Force One, the 747-400 used by heavy metal band Iron Maiden (who, for those who might not know, is my favorite band of all time) while on tour. Bruce Dickinson, the lead singer for the band, is also a commercial pilot and owns a very successful aviation maintenance c...

The budget doc has been updated for January 2016. Same link from the original post. Comment directly on the spreadsheet if you have any questions. One thing to note, I have added a separate "virtual account" for our Marketing team. The balance is currently $50, which is the equivalent of all unspent...

Click here to view the budget report on Google Drive TL;DR: We have $362.20 in PayPal. That will decrease if I ever get a PM from those who signed up for First Class with a shirt size and mailing address.

Yeah, most of what's sitting in the account right now is not from the old first class program, it's from a handful of very large (and incredibly generous) donations from a couple of users.

Wait no stickers? This is outrageous! How can you have a paid membership with no stickers! Also do you accept Google Wallet? Would people prefer stickers over shirts? If so we can make that happen. And no, we can't accept it directly but if you have the Google wallet debit card you can run that thr...

Ha, no. It's really going to be more about who's willing to participate and actually give us anything early. That was more of a marketing sentence. I'll change it.

Before I continue, I want to make it very clear: the program is optional and only adds features. Those w...
