November Update

Welcome to this month’s update! I hope you are well and keeping safe.

After over a year’s development, vAMSYS have released their very own custom ACARS! Pegasus allows pilots to track flights, view bookings, view live flights as well as read VA specific alerts. Pegasus also gives you the choice of light and dark mode as well as rich presence on Discord. The vRYR team would like to congratulate Team vAMSYS – Anna especially – for reaching yet another incredible milestone as they continue to make vAMSYS an even greater virtual airline management platform for virtual airlines. You can download Pegasus by going to vAMSYS – Resources – Pegasus. Feel free to drop your feedback in our Discord server!

Secondly, a shout out to Filipe Spring for winning the October screenshot competition! His screenshot will now feature across our Facebook, Twitter and vAMSYS pages for the duration of November. We’ll be sending over 250 bonus points to Filipe! You can view the screenshot in the Discord server, and it’ll soon feature across our social platforms.

Now for some general stats for those who are interested. In October we welcomed over 140 new pilots to Virtual Ryanair! Welcome to our community and be sure to introduce yourself in our Discord server. October saw the likes of over 4,600 PIREPs and over 870,000 points dished out to pilots! It’s been yet another busy month with over 730,000 passengers flown across Europe in 31 days!

Over the last six weeks, our Routes Team have worked their socks off to meet the winter routes update. It’s been a busy few weeks for the team and George and I really do appreciate their hard work to achieve this.

November and December are usually two busier months here at vRYR. Over the next few weeks, we will be increasing the amount of events and focus airports as well as a festive tour – to be announced sometime in November! What do you think about our festive logo?

We always appreciate your feedback on how we’re doing as a virtual airline, and we always love your thoughts on what we can do to make vRYR an even better community. If you’re not part of our Discord server, head to our website and click on ‘Discord’ in the navigation bar. It’s been some time since we ran a pilot survey, but your thoughts and comments really do matter to us.

Last week we released a poll to gather some feedback on how we should continue to operate during COVID-19. Due to Ryanair operating a limited schedule through the Winter, it will mean we have less real-world flight data available to us. As of November 6th, the poll has now closed for pilots and staff. We will update you over the next few days as to how we will continue to operate.

As always – thank you for flying vRYR! Keep safe and see you in December!
