• Virtual PIA Adopts Custom ACARS Software

    Virtual PIA, also referred to as VPIA, is the first, largest and only VATSIM certified virtual airline representing Pakistan International Airlines (PIA), and now brings a new custom ACARS software for its pilots. VPIAcars is a fully customized software developed by TFDi. Among the other benefits, the biggest advantage of VPIAcars is streamlined operations and one-click installation.

    There are no configuration files, additional software, supporting modules, or updates to install. Everything is bundled into one package that requires just one click to install - that's right, one click and you are ready to go.

    Virtual pilots and aviators in Pakistan who are faced with loadshedding and power blackouts can also take advantage of the variable sim rate option being offered. This feature allows pilots to adopt a reasonable sim rate, in cruise, on our longer sectors, such as the 14-hour nonstops from Pakistan to Canada. This flight is operated by the Boeing 777-200LR, including AP-BGZ, the World Distance Record Holder aircraft.

    Some of the additional features of this software include:

    • New, well-equipped alternative to other ACARS software
    • Compatible with FSX and FS2004
    • One Click Installation
    • Variable Sim Rate Logging Available
    • Offline Logging Available
    • Chat Option Available
    • Flight Information Directly Available
    • Inbuilt Bid Management
    • Custom Sound Package including Cabin Announcements and GPWS

    Since 2005, Virtual PIA organization has been serving the needs of flight simmers in Pakistan, and around the world. By the Grace of Allah (Glorious and Exalted), over the years, we have developed and released over 100 free add-ons for the community, which are hosted on more than 15 flight simulation web sites including www.flightsim.com.

    Additionally, VPIA also works with leading Flight Simulator designers and aircraft modelling experts, professional aviation photographers, and aviation professionals both in Pakistan and abroad.

    VPIA is also actively involved in volunteering and charity activities, including work with UNICEF, Pakistan Youth Alliance, and other organizations.

    Long live unity of the pilots.
