Patriot Virtual Airways was founded in December of 2009 with one goal in mind. To provide flight sim enthusiasts a virtual airline that is not full of strict rules. We wanted an airline that provided a more relaxed environment for our VA pilots while still providing a sense of realism that some experienced VA pilots are wanting. Please take a few minutes and check out our site to get an idea on how we operate. We think you will like it here!

Patriot Operations center has received a request to transport Skiing groups to two airports to Ski resorts.
Aspen–Pitkin Co./Sardy Field covers an area of 573 acres (232 ha) at an elevation of 7,820 feet (2,384 m) above mean sea level. It has one asphalt paved runway designated 15/33 which measures 8,006 by 100 feet (2,440 x 30 m).
Aspen-Pitkin Co. Airport has more regular service from major carriers than any other regional ski town airport in North America. In the winter, its regular, weekly flights number more than 170 (not including extra flights often run during busy holiday seasons). In addition to regular service from Denver, Aspen sees more than 20 flights a week from Chicago and Los Angeles.
Telluride Regional Airport covers 542 acres (219 ha) and has one runway, 9/27, 6,911 by 100 feet (2,106 by 30 m). The runway is on a plateau and still dips slightly in the center, although the dip was more pronounced prior to a renovation in 2009. It can be a challenging but beautiful approach for pilots. In the past during winter months, about 20% of the scheduled commuter airline flights were diverting to other airports because of abruptly adverse landing conditions. This is not unusual since other mountain airports like Sun Valley have similar statistics. When flying to the Telluride Regional Airport, pilots must be aware of unique issues impacting the airfield including high terrain exceeding 14,000 feet (4,300 m), as well as the airport's location on a plateau with a thousand-foot (300 m) drop to the San Miguel River below.
As a bonus for accepting this critical mission, Patriot Virtual Airlines will be awarding one lucky pilot at the END of slot 2 a EUR 25.00 ($26.33) SimMarket Gift Voucher. See official rules for participation guidelines by clicking here.
