• Starline Airways Opening

    Today the 28th of December a new era of virtual airline simulation is launched, after nearly half a year of development.

    The original idea of Starline is that flying for virtual airlines should not be complicated with software to install and configure, rules for how much a pilot needs to fly to avoid being removed etc., but still highly realistic. Instead of ACARS software all our flights are tracked live from VATSIM/IVAO, all the pilot has to do is to connect with the correct callsign for the booked flight. We encourage our pilots to fly whenever they have the time and desire for it, and a pilot will never be removed due to inactivity.

    With our professional custom made and user-friendly web page comes except a booking system, forum, advanced user statistic and downloadable aircraft liverys for PMDG 737NGX, PMDG 777 and Aerosoft Airbus X A321, also an Electronic Flight Bag (EFB).

    The Electronic Flight Bag includes:

    • Flight briefing overview
    • Flight progress indication
    • Charts for all our destination
    • Weather
    • Notams
    • Fuel calculations
    • Digital checklists

    The EFB will automatically load the flight you're connected to on VATSIM or IVAO, and make recommendations for charts and runways in use.

    With our optional software StarRoute, the programming of the FMC will also be alot smoother as you can simply just load the flight plan into the FMC, without having to type each waypoint in yourself. StarRoute will automatically download co-routes for your booked flights and place them in the correct folder for each add-on. The only thing except Flight Simulator or Prepar3D is an valid VATSIM or IVAO ID.

      Is it compatible for FS9? Is it also connected with VAFS?

      I think it's a good idea, but it's going to have some tough competition with the many VAs on VATSIM and IVAO that have a lot of members. Also, if a member is never kicked for inactivity, then there's not much encouragement for activity in the airline besides the EFB system, which at any time could fail and cause complications or which might not appeal to some pilots flying in the airline. Plus, it might want to include support for X-Plane and FS9 as a good amount of pilots on both VATSIM and IVAO use those simulators.

      EDIT: Forgot to include that it may also want to have support for Singleplayer or Direct Connect Multiplayer sessions (such as BVATC) for members with any form of issue regarding VATSIM or IVAO. If support is added for those, it could increase the potential pilot base.

      Hi!

      I don't think that just becuse we don't force our pilots to fly one flight or more every month or so necessarily will equal to less activity. I think pilots instead will be more relaxed, knowing that all their time spent will not be lost. Remember that pilots still is rewarded for activity, not only flying.

      We alao support both X-plane and FS9, every flight simulator you can connect to VATSIM or IVAO is basically supported. Don't know where you heard otherwhise?
