Transfer of hours
We will allow a new member signing up to transfer their hours previously built from another airline. However, this rule is only valid up to 7 days from the date of their signing up. We do not allow the transfer of hours from IVAO, VATSIM or any kind of online flight, the hours must be from flying for another airline. The name of your previous airline must be provided on requesting transfer of hours and evidence may be required as proof of such hours and activity.

New Members
New members must complete their first flight within 7 days of signing up to Western Air. New members can only request leave of absence after successfully completing their first flight for Western Air.

Pilot inactivity
A pilot must fly at least once per calendar month or the pilot may be subject to removal from Western Air. Any pilot requiring leave of absence is required to complete a leave of absence request form on the Western Air website. Leave of absence does not have to be authorized but if it is suspected that such leave of absence is being abused then the pilot may be subject to removal.

Staff inactivity
If staff members do not come onto Team-speak at least once a week they will be warned and if such non-appearance continues they may lose their position as staff. Should staff fail to complete their duties as staff members they may be subject to losing their position. Staff will be entitled to leave of absence but they must inform the CEO prior to their application for leave. Staff will be required to fly only for Western Air and they must fly at least once a week. Staff failing to fly at least once per week may incur their dismissal from that position.

The Use Of Sim Acars
Members must use the Sim Acars program correctly and honestly. All flights must be flown with that of the aircraft type scheduled for that route, that is, if a B737-800 is scheduled, then a B737-800 must be used. Members not using the correct aircraft scheduled will receive up to two warnings. A third instance of fail to use the correct aircraft may result in that member receiving dispatch routes from their Hub Manager or even a suspension period. Pilots must report aircraft damage during flight to their Hub Manager. Consistent damage may require the member to complete a checkout flight with one of the approved instructors.

Pilots are required to request routes or aircraft fleet from their Hub Manager. Pilots are required to submit to their Hub Managers any flights that fail for any reason. The member can claim flight time for flights that are not completed due to FSX crashes, connection issues, or Sim Acars failing to monitor a flight though a claim for such flight hours may be subject to a request for evidence.

Jump seating may only be permitted if members are jumping between hub’s within the Virtual Airline. Jump seating is not authorized if members wish to jump seat back to any hub from a destination they have flown to. The member must fly from that destination back to a hub within the airline. Members must not leave any aircraft at any destination other than that of any hub within the airline.
