Leisure Operations suspended until April 30, 2021
At the request of the Canadian government to restrict flights to Sun Destinations due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our Leisure operations will be suspended on February 8, 2021 until at least April 30, 2021 when it will be scheduled for another review.
As we strive to simulate real world operations at VAC, our passenger flight schedules will be further reduced as a result of these changes. Adhoc cargo flights are in demand globally and information can be obtained from third party websites such as FlightAware.com or FlightRadar24.com. Cargo flight requests will be granted and made available in your myVAC profile by placing your request through the Discord platform under #crew-sked-requests channel.
We understand that this will impact your flight bidding selection as we adapt to these challenges. Thank you for your continued loyalty and support for aviation and the flight simulation experience at VAC.
