While still wrapping up our most successful year to date, Virtual Blue CEO Petey Shivery released to the world that "the organization is looking forward to an even better year; a year filled with development, service, and improvement for all our pilots." Virtual Blue is continuing to make itself an organization that stands out from the crowd, an enjoyable and fun-filled organization that can be joined by any pilot looking to learn.
The Chief Executive Officer has already announced, with the help of many donations, that they will be seeing an official video come 2013. "The video," Shivery has stated, "is something that resembles our organization completely and is certainly something to look out for." Since its release in August, Virtual Blue has been looking forward to its official video, and now it will be able to be seen throughout the world in 2013.
In addition, Virtual Blue has announced updates to its ACARS system, dispatching center, and web site come 2013. Also, the institution of our flight dispatcher position and soon to be VATSIM ATO rated training program will all be updates to look out for in the new year. Dimitri Trofimuk, the Chief of Information Technology, has been working since the organization's release for the latest software for Virtual Blue pilots to use. He has already improved Dynife, the in-flight entertainment system, that can make a four hour plane ride seem like four minutes. We would like to thank Trofimuk for all his hard work in 2012 and cannot wait to see what happens in 2013.
Now, when you are looking towards the new year, make sure you are looking for an organization that is constantly updating to fit the needs of its pilots. At Virtual Blue, there is never a day where we do not think about our talented pilots. Think about it, because we do!
Exciting new things are happening. It is time to join today: http://flyvblue.org/.
