Pin It

Cabo San Lucas, or simply Cabo, is a resort city at the southern tip of the Baja California Peninsula, in the Mexican state of Baja California Sur. Rated as one of Mexico's top 5 tourist destinations, Cabo is known for its beaches, scuba diving locations, Balnearios, the sea arch El Arco de Cabo San Lucas, and marine life. The Los Cabos Corridor has become a heavily trafficked vacation destination for tourists, with numerous resorts and timeshares along the coast between Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo. The waters around Cabo are home to marine wildlife including rays, sharks, mahi-mahi (dorado) and striped marlin.

Airwego Announces Historic Flights

For those involved in running a virtual airline there is a lot of satisfaction as you provide a platform for your crew members to enjoy our shared hobby. The enthusiasm generated by an active crew can motivate you to continue to develop your "VA" perhaps beyond your initial plans.

The development path followed by the Airwego Virtual Airline Group is a prime example of this with many projects, either initiated by our crew or Staff Team, introduced allowing the VA to mature into the organisation it is today. Twenty one years on from our inception we continue to thrive.

With the launch of a brand new project, we are in a position whereby it can now allow its loyal crew members to fly "any commercial passenger aircraft" as part of our brand new Historic Flights Project with just one condition. The aircraft you choose to fly on those routes must have completed its first flight before 1970.

In this golden age of aviation air travel was a luxury of the rich and famous and in many ways a grand occasion. Our carefully chosen destinations reflect this taking our passengers from our base of operations in the United Kingdom to Continental Europe, North America and Africa.

Historic Flights are currently available from our Jersey, London Gatwick and Edinburgh bases.

We have no VA liveries available for aircraft that you might use for our Historical Flights as we simply didn't exist during this time. Pick your favourite airline from this Golden Era of aviation and off you go.

What will it be? The PMDG DC6?

How about the excellent Freeware Manfred Jahn DC3?

Maybe one of the early Boeing jets?

Immerse yourself in a bygone age and Fly the Compass.

Announcing The Pilot Club

Pin It

Hello, fellow flightsimmers! I am very excited to share with you one of the fastest growing communities in flight simulation. Founded in April 2021, The Pilot Club is a free flightsim community with over 750 flightsim aviators of all skill levels, as well as real-world pilots, and air traffic controllers.

The Pilot Club is for those who are passionate about aviation. Our primary goal is to provide a supportive environment for flightsim enthusiasts to thrive, fly, connect, and make new friends. To achieve that, we conduct scheduled group flights, which are listed in our Dispatch on the web site and in Discord server. If you like to fly airliners or bizjets - we have flights for you! Like to explore flying GA VFR? We got you covered! Some of our flights are hybrid, allowing both airliners and GA to fly into a designated facility. We also have a monthly World Tour flights, Challenge flights, Explorer series flights, and more, giving you more things to try, learn, and experience!

Being an official VATSIM partner allows us to coordinate ATC coverage for our group flights and host co-op events with various facilities, adding to the realism and enjoyment of flight simulation.

Big part of flight simulation is training. Our Training Program provides necessary training for folks of all skill levels on topics such as VATSIM, aircraft operation, flight planning, aviation weather, charts, and more. In 2022, we anticipate being approved as an ATO (Authorized Training Organization) with VATSIM. Being an ATO will allow us to conduct training and give out P-ratings right within the Club environment. Learning never stops, and we are excited about being able to train sim pilots in the Club.

For those looking for more structure and a purpose for your flights, we recently launched a virtual airline called TPC Charters. The VA utilizes OnAir platform, providing a realistic experience for pilots flying for a small airline. If you are interested in having assigned flight jobs, want a bit more structure and being part of VA - TPC Charters is the place for you! With friendly and attentive management team, you will feel like you belong and have a purpose for your flights, while being a part of something special!

When not flying, our members connect on Discord to share experiences, discuss flightsim topics, and participate in Club's social events such as Townhalls, Giveaways, and Trivia Nights. At TPC - we have something for everybody.

Our friendly and supportive staff focuses on providing a small-club feel, where everyone feels welcome. We answer questions about flightsim and aviation, troubleshoot issues, and generally try to help folks enjoy the flightsim hobby. We are a very diverse group without strict membership requirements. Additionally, you can fly our group flights on any simulator. We are all-inclusive, friendly, and caring - that's what attracts flightsim enthusiasts to the Club. We are building a special place together.

If you are looking to be a part of a fastest growing flightsim community, join us and Let's Fly!
