Jay Kidder, MD Airline Operations

October was a great month for us here at airline operations. We were able to continue our weekly NFL group flights, launch a new tour for pilots to complete, and put together an awesome Halloween event. For November, we are looking to continue creating new exciting flights/events for our members to fly and participate in!

Mike Ortins, Community Engagement Manager

I’ve been hard at work looking for ways to improve upon your interaction with CCS! The first step in that process on the user side of things is our CCS survey, which I would love to get as many responses as possible to make CCS the service our members want it to be! If you haven’t filled it out yet you can find it at http://bit.ly/CCS_Survey it is relatively short and I would love to read all your thoughts and answers. The next initiative in this process is the organizational wide survey which will be out this November! This survey will cover all aspects of our organization and will allow us to get the “pulse” of what you, our pilots, think and feel about how we are doing. One of the key aspects I am working on it is getting a baseline of where we are at now with you, our members, engagement. Once we have our baseline, we can begin to see what we can do better to make your experience with our organization the best it can be! I would also like to take this opportunity to extend that if there are any topics not covered by either of these surveys to please email me your thoughts on something we can do better to make your engagement and experience here at vUSCI the best it can be!

I look forward to seeing you all in the friendly skies and hope to see many of your at our upcoming events!!

Christopher Lintner, Events Coordinator

October has been a busy month with events! We had four more NFL group flights and our first Halloween event! Moving forward through November, I will be working on some type of Thanksgiving flight, and finalizing our Winter Event!

Royal Reynolds, Special Operations Manager

Good day everyone! The month of October was pretty slow for special operations. We launched the Appalachian Tour in addition to our Royal challenge charter that you can still fly. For November, we hope to release a new tour as well as a new charter. As always, I welcome any suggestions or comments.


As always, if you have any questions at all, do not hesitate to reach out to us! If you are unsure as to who to contact, email [email protected] and the appropriate person will get back to you as soon as possible.
