About Virtual Oneworld Alliance

Created in March 2020, during the global lockdown and stay at home orders, we decided to create this new and innovative virtual airline for flight enthusiasts. Our systems and platform are some of the latest technologies, with fully customizable features, ranging from the Acars system to the booking system. Our website is 90% automated to ensure efficiency within our operation. It is fully responsive and can be navigated easily via all smart devices. Our Management team is no stranger to the virtual airline business, as we have successfully managed virtual airlines in the past. Virtual Oneworld Alliance embodies itself with professionalism as well as a fun and educational environment. Our VA will create a friendly community with many benefits for all.

OUR MISSION: To become the leader in virtual aviation.

VirtualOWA is a non-profit virtual airline for flight simulation purposes ONLY. Our Virtual Airlines does not act on the behalf of any Real world Operation, and does not earn any renevue on their behalf. Every thing here is strictly virtual and simulated.

    Here’s a guide to PIREP Submission at Virtual Oneworld Alliance (vOWA)

    The management and staff of vOWA intend to maintain a high standard and encourage pilots to fly accurately and as realistically as practicable. Therefore, when submitting your PIREP be aware that there is an acceptance criterion that must be met for every flight before it as approved. If your flight is submitted with any of the following it will be subject to rejection.

    ALL FLIGHTS must be submitted using the smartCARS (iGlobal) software system, which can be downloaded from the website.


    CRITERIA FOR REJECTION:
    • Flight simulated greater than real time (1x)
    • Landing rate above -650fpm
    • Crashing of aircraft
    • Refueling of Aircraft during flight (In-Flight Refueling)
    • Over-speeding for long periods of time.
    • Pausing flight simulator for more than 30 minutes (as per Vatsim policy)
    • Flight Schedules not authorized by the virtual airline.
    • Departing from an airport other than the scheduled airport.
    • Using incorrect livery, i.e. flying airlines outside of the oneworld alliance.
    The use of manufacture’s house colors is acceptable in the absence of the airline livery. NOTE: We encourage the use of the airline that the route is assigned.
    • Any other reason justifiable by the staff member approving the PIREP

    PIREP PENALTIES
    • Stalling the aircraft -1000 Priority Miles
    • Slewing of Aircraft -500 Priority Miles
    • Over-speeding for an extended period (greater than 90 seconds)

    o Exceeding aircraft Vmo -1000 Priority Miles
    • Refueling of Aircraft during flight (In-Flight Refueling) -1000 Priority Miles

    Virtual Oneworld Alliance allows a maximum of three (3) manual PIREPS per calendar month. This option should be used as a last resort. However, if for any reason a manual submission is needed, the flight must be verified by the reviewer. To avoid delays, please add a link to aid in verification of the flight done. Three methods to show proof of flight are:

    • Vatstats (https://vatstats.net/search) plug in your VATSIM ID and find the flight and submit the link to that flight.
    • Copy the information from the ACARS and paste it in the comments.
    • Link or copy of the flight report from either ProjectFly or SimToolkitPro.

    Pilots must provide any additional information requested by the reviewer within 24 hours. All additional information should be emailed to the Regional Director of your region for review. All emails can be found on the management page of the website under the About tab.

    Failure to do so will result in the PIREP being rejected. We further advise that double PIREPing will not be tolerated and is grounds for immediate termination of membership.
