Aether Virtual Airways Handbook
To email the CEO
Founded: August 15th 2009
Founder: Ryan L. Reynolds
To maintain a realistic and entertaining virtual experience of flying aircraft meanwhile visiting the far reaches of the world all while having fun.
- Professionalism and respect are expected and are mandatory at all times.
- That is to say that respect is to be given to all fellow pilots, air traffic and ground controllers and to the management personnel of the airline.
- Anyone displaying a lack of either of these characteristics will be subject to immediate dismissal from a session and to possibly be banned from the airline indefinitely.
- At all times there is an unwavering expectation that all pilots and ATC should strive to maintain an atmosphere of realism.
- This includes oneís flying demeanor, taxi procedures, radio communication and adherence to ATC commands.
- All pilots, when in-session, must announce their callsign in every transmission on the radio.
- ATC must announce the callsign of the aircraft to which he is speaking in each transmission.
- ATC commands all planes within his controlled airspace. At no time (with the exception of an emergency situation) should the pilot tell ATC what the aircraft is proceeding to do.
- Pilots, when on the ground, must issue a flight plan via the session chatroom.
- Pilots, when in the air, must announce to ATC only their intentions and wait for ATC to give them instruction.
- Communication between two pilots on ATC (or any other controller) frequency is strictly prohibited. Especially for this reason, all aircraft to aircraft communication should be conducted on frequency 123.450.
Listed below are the 7 proposed hubs of Aether Virtual Airways. They were picked solely upon geographic location and their lack of proximity to the other respective hubs.
The hubs that are colored green are active and have a Hub Manager. The hubs that are colored red are inactive and have no Hub Manager.
Any member wishing to apply to be a Hub Manager should contact the CEO via email. Enclosed should be the memberís name, email address, and any deemed worthwhile reason to be considered for the position of the hubís manager.

Aircraft and Roles
Aether Virtual Airways, in its infancy, will support four different aircraft for four respective roles. This is only logical so that the airline does not use an aircraft for a flight for which it was not intended. For example, you would not see a real-world airline using a Boeing 747 to fly from Miami to Ft. Lauderdale. Therefore the Aircraft picked are assigned for flights that are more appropriately suited to their real-world purpose.

Aether Virtual Airways uses a numerical reference system to label any flight plan.
The first number denotes the hub that is involved in a given flight plan.
The second number denotes the type of flight and thus the type of aircraft to be used.
The Third number denotes the city at the opposite end of the flight. There are 28 default flight plans for the airline. New flight plans will be added on a basis of congestion and/or monotony.
