Account ProceduresAll pilots must fly at least one flight within the first 14 days after successful completion of registration. You may request a leave of absence for up to 1 year; however, active pilots must file a flight every 60 days. Active Pilots who do not comply with this rule will be removed from the roster unless they request a LOA (leave of absence). You can use this feature via your logbook. Any issues, please contact the Senior Vice President - Human Resources
All flights must represent a valid VAC flight as assigned by the schedule system on the VAC website. Flights not on this system will be rejected and removed after filing.
The report will be added to the database and will be sent to your Director of Hub Operations for review. Pilots who submit false flight reports may have their entire log wiped clean, be suspended, or terminated. Any pilots who fly routes that are not authorized will have their flight reports rejected.
Each pilot is only permitted to submit a flight report for the type of aircraft for which he/she has been certified. Any flight reports filed for uncertified aircraft will be rejected, and repeated offences may lead to the pilots log being wiped clean, suspension or even termination of membership in VAC.
When flying online, we encourage you to use the flight number assigned for the flight. Ex: ACA668 or JZA8344 and indicate in the Pilot's Remark that you are a member of VAC and website address: www.vacanada.org
