Hey wecs. Great idea. Only a few things that could be changed for the better.
1) It would be better as a 3 letter code for callsign. (ie : FVA)
2) Matter of opinion but I wouldn't use KSFO as a hub due to bad/new pilots.
BUT
I love the idea of coming to Schiphol, I always control there and will be glad to welcome some of your pilots.

Hello,
What does it mean to control "for an airline"? Do you mean commit to a slot in a tower to make sure your regular flights are controlled on departure and arrival?
Also, I'd recommend FVAxxxx without the dash. As a controller I always first interpret YY in "YY-XXXX" as an aircraft registration prefix, where I'd read out the letters and not use an airline name. Please prefer FVAxxxx with xxxx only numbers for your callsigns, which will properly stand for an airline and flight number.

It basically means that you can apply for controlling our flights from one of the main hubs. ( Keep in mind that ATC all goes via chat and not via FGcom as a lot of people don't know how to use it).

Also the dash is just there to separate, the real call signs are without a dash.

Please let me know if you have any other thoughts or changes that I should make. And of course please join my airline, just go to this website and signup: http://fly-flightgear-va.tripod.com/.

Er, asking ATCs not to use fgcom to me sounds like asking theme park customers not to use the rides.
Also, I am a little confused by "apply for controlling", as anyone can go anywhere as far as I know you won't be able to restrict use of a spot by an ATC or another. Unless... are you talking of a dedicated MP server, different from the ones listed in the public documentation?

It means just controlling our flights, we will not restrict any traffic from that airport it is just to manage our airline. Also we can provide ATC for other traffic at that airport. Also we could use FGcom but some people don't know ( such as me, so if you could explain how to start it up because it doesn't work for me ) still it is an option we can use.

Best of luck with your new airline! :)

Fgcom will be integrated in the 3.0 release of FlightGear so look forward to that.

Having been involved in Atlas Virtual Airlines and now Global Virtual Air, I can say from experience that the hardest thing to get are people that wish to ATC. Well, actually, you'll get many that wish to, but the logistics of having a "company" ATC can be difficult. People can't always fly when an ATC is present, or want to fly to places where ATC is not at. Especially in the limited usage FGmultiplayer environment. Limited by the number of participants, not limited in any other real way.
You'll find that those of your pilots that wish to have ATC present will much rather prefer to fly on the VatSim network, where there are many hundreds of controllers already present throughout the virtual world.

Vatsim is a bit harder to set up, but it can be done and I understand the rumor is that developers would like to add vatsim software to a future FG release. More than half of the active pilots of Global Virtual Air have flights on vatsim.

Again, best of luck. It can be fun, especially if you can set up some form or real time chat to keep your community together and organized and on the same page.

I agree with everything Micky said, including the theme park joke ;).
You need to remove the dash.

Hi wecs28! :D
Are you interested to cooperate with the NIATCA project in Italy?
We are searching volonteers for doing ATC services and also we need to have more traffic an our zone.
As soon as I can, I will post an on-line form to register in the project. :wink:
If you're interested in the project, please send my a reply and I'll give you more information about it.
Greetings, Maverick

Sure we could easily do some flights from EHAM, EDDM, and EDDF to somewhere in Italy.

Thanks for the great idea!

The only thing is that I still need some pilots as I don't have any yet except for my self.
