New Voice/Text Communication Program - "Discord" At VAC, we recognize the importance of staying connected with your flight simulator colleagues wherever you may be around the world. We are proud to integrate a freeware application called "DISCORD" into our operations that will revolutionize how we communicate with other members pre/post flight as well as our Executive Team. Discord is a multi-platform communication application and is completely free. It can be used on your computer running on PC, Mac, Linux or mobile devices running Android and iOS. For members using Discord on your mobile devices, please ensure your are on a WIFI network when using Voice Channels to prevent data overage charges from your service provider. Download Information: Computer: https://discordapp.com/download Mobile Devices: Android (Google Play), Apple (App Store) Channel: https://discordapp.com/invite/bPCjrjq Once you have registered, as per Standard Operating Procedures, your nickname must coincide with your VAC ID. For example: "VAC005 - Daniel Desjardins" This must be changed within 24 hours of registration and is enforced. Our member forums at www.vacanada.org/forum continue to be your primary source for updates and trip report screenshots at VAC. We hope you enjoy and find this application beneficial as we seek to bring our flight simulation community closer together.
Photo/Screenshot Gallery NOW AVAILABLE We are pleased to introduce the Real World Photo / Flight Simulator Gallery to our members. When you click on the CREW ROOM navigation menu on the VAC website, you will be brought into the pilot forums. There will be a gallery of selected high quality photographs or screenshots from our members on the main forum page. To view additional images, please select the GALLERY tab in the menu to access a full library of VAC images. The Photo/Screenshot Gallery features the best screenshots of Mainline / Leisure and Express liveries. In order to be featured in the gallery, members must submit their entries into the TRIP REPORTS section of the forum. A review will be conducted by the Executive Team and the selected photo/screenshot will be uploaded and featured on the main page of the forum. We hope you enjoy this new feature in enhancing your VAC experience with us.
