April 2019 Update Published on 9 Apr 2019 by Koen Vlaswinkel

Hi pilots,

As you might have noticed, there have been various changes throughout the VA.

The most noticeable change is the change in map provider on the live flights and route map. We have exceeded our quota on Google Maps and as such we have switched some of our maps to a different map provider. In this change, we have also made some minor improvements to the map, such as adding airport ICAO labels. Moreover, the map now also displays on which online network a pilot is flying, which is updated every ten minutes.

We are also in the process of switching over to the summer schedule, but as this is largely a manual process, this will take some additional time. In June, we will also see Joon depart since Joon will discontinue in June. We have made preparations for this change so it can go smoothly.

As always, the monthly tour is now available to fly.

We would also like to remind you we have a Discord server. To join it, use discord.gg/EAKR7Qe.
