Aviator Appreciation Program Announced
vAAirlines is excited to announce that it will be implementing a brand new way of pilot placement when it comes to aircraft group category based on their initial scoring on the entrance exam. Before, pilots would be placed in either Group I or Group II based on the entrance exam score and begin their career there. vAAirlines has modified this slightly to be in line with the minimum passing requirements for FAA written exams as well as by adding an entirely new system nicknamed the Aviator Appreciation Program!
SOPPHB v1.7 has just been uploaded to the website which brings the changes to the initial ranking system while also adding verbiage for this agreement. Now if you have a score above the required threshold (90% or higher) and are able to provide proof of your real world completed pilot certificate (FAA or international equivalent), you will be automatically awarded Group III First Officer and be allowed to continue to progress normally from that point. The list of approved real world certificates that are accepted include; Sport Pilot, Recreational Pilot, Private Pilot, Commercial Pilot, or Airline Transport Pilot (ATP).
For more information about how to provide proof of the information, how to ensure your information remains secure, and who to submit the information to please review the new SOPPHB v1.7 which can be downloaded now from the Pilot Portal “Downloads” section. Over the next few days we will also be reviewing entrance exam scores to upgrade anyone who is currently a Group I pilot, but would have scored high enough for Group II with the new scoring, to their proper Group. If you have already upgraded to Captain in Group I but would have scored high enough for Group II, we will transfer you to Group II Captain to recognize your achievement! Remember, your account will only be edited if you do in fact meet the requirements of the new scoring system and this change will not affect every pilot on the seniority list.
Thank you all for everything that you do, and we hope that this new program will help us to recognize the truly amazing real-world achievements of our members moving forward!
