May is well underway, which means it is time to update everyone on what is happening here at Virtual United Social Club!

SKYNET

We recently have made some changes to SKYNET. Most of these changes deal with the user interface. So, the next time you log into SKYNET, you may see some changes to your dashboard which include the destination of the month listed and the current weather at the airport you last landed.

In addition to the user interface updates, the auto-flight reporting system has been enabled, which means your flight report should automatically be accepted once filed via SKYLINK. If the flight report is not accepted, it is being held for review, and your FOM will get to it as quickly as possible.

As SKYNET continues to update with new features, we will update you.

Destination of the Month

Our Destination of the Month is Nashville International Airport (KBNA). With a little over one million passengers flying in and out of Nashville every month, the airport is a gateway to the mid-south. If you find yourself flying into Nashville and happen to take some screenshots, we would love to see them in our destination of the month album on CCS here.

Screenshot Competition

Our May Screenshot Competition is underway! You can post you five best screenshots to the competition album here. Want to read up on the contest rules? Click here to read more.

Our upcoming Fun ‘N Sun event is in its final preparations. The event will take place on July 13th. We will be heading down to the Caribbean to do some island hopping! Mark your calendars and stay tuned for more information to come.

Are you attending FlightSimExpo in Orlando, Florida? We would love to invite you to our annual pilot meetup. Click here to fill out a form so we may plan a time to meet. You will be able to meet a few executive team members, including President Robby Sayles. We will be giving out a swag bag to those who are able to come to the meet and greet. We look forward to seeing everyone in Orlando!

Open Staff Positions

We are hiring Flight Operations managers and MSR representatives. If you or somebody you know is interested, please let us know. We have waived the three-month requirement, so external applicants are now accepted. The only requirement is to join vUSCI as a pilot. Please email [email protected] to apply!

This wraps up the May update. We look forward to what the rest of the month has to bring!
