ABOUT OUR vAMERICARS SYSTEM
Our vAmeriCARS system, unique to American Airlines Virtual, is a state-of-the-art ACARS system developed in-house. It builds upon the foundation of normal ACARS, such as live flight tracking and dispatch, and adds more features to make our ACARS top-of-the-line and the best, giving us a competitive edge over the rest of the playing field. Planned features include the ability to record details of your entire flight, including time of pushback, rotation, and touchdown. Overspeed warnings and stalls are also recorded, enabling us to assist you if you need help flying properly.

We also plan to include the small details that make flying an enjoyable and full experience, such as the ACARS automatically playing the audio of the American Airlines safety video during pushback from the gate, and flight attendant announcements that automatically play throughout their respective stages of flight.

OUR STAFF
Ben Benjadol - Chief Executive Officer
Justin Edwards - Chief Operating Officer
Jonathan Cartledge - VP of Human Resources
Bill Wohlers - VP of Web Development
Michael Lukus - VP of Scheduling and Fleet

So you can also do charter flights? Maybe Baltimore-Aviano AB and vice versa or Ramstein AB-Aviano AB and vice versa? I do ATC at LIPA (and ETAR) and I'm searching someone to do these charter flights. Could you help me?
See http://www.aviano.af.mil/library/avianopassengerterminal.asp for more info.

Don't get me wrong, but you need to isolate the A306 before it can be used. The total of a310 and bepuga is about 60 mb. A lot simpler just one plane; not three ;)

You need the two others to run the A306 properly, you see.

A300 ,A310 and the Beluga are all separate planes here in FG. Nothing is connected in between. The Beluga still needs some work on it's AP but it's an amazing plane.
