  Summer timetable by: Danny Lemckert @ 30-03-2019 14:49z    
 Dear pilots,

We have released our summer timetable and fleet update today. Many thanks to our staff for realising this once again!! Enjoy the upgrade and timetable!

~ Danny
Director Flight Technical Department

  Fleet update by: Danny Lemckert @ 25-02-2019 15:39z    
 Dear pilots,

The PH-HSK is the first aircraft in our fleet wearing the split scimitar winglets. More aircraft will be equipped with these winglets in the upcoming months.

As the summer approaches, transavia is going to lease aircraft(s) from Jet Time. However, most likely, these aircraft will not have any logo or sticker from transavia on the fuselage. We do not know yet if transavia is going to lease aircraft from GOL again this year.

Currently, we are working on a fleet update for all of our aircraft. This contains (new) visable details such as; cabin interior, cockpit texture modifications, dirt on the wheels/tail and a personalized .ini file for each aircraft. We will post some pictures of this update on our facebook when it is almost finshed!

Stay tuned!

Danny

  Aerosoft discount-program stopped by: Raymond van der Ploeg @ 17-01-2019 15:29z    
 Following email was received from Aerosoft regarding their discount program:


Dear VA contact,

checking on our records we have seen that 75% of the discount codes we have send out are not used. We have also seen that some codes have been shared outside VA’s. That’s why we have closed our VA discount program at this moment. We are not sure when or how we will restart the program. I will keep everybody informed when we do so.

If you have any questions contact me via support@aerosoft.com


With greetings,

Dear Pilots,

At Transavia Virtual we have everything you might expect of a virtual airline. We have lovely pilots, our aircraft look pretty and if possible we depart on time. In flight we have enthusiastic crew, surprisingly good coffee, We have exemplary passengers, sometime slightly less exemplary passengers and a magnificent view at 30.000 feet. There is only one thing that makes us unique, “No, not you Raymond, our tours. Because Transavia Virtual always flies very well arranged throughout Europe the number one reason to fly Transavia Virtual. Transavia, what are you still doing here?

Do you recognize this text? It was the Transavia.com Commercial ten years ago. In these ten years a lot changed in the Transavia network. Bases are opened and closed, brands like BasiqAir and Transavia Denmark ceased operations while Transavia France became a well know player in the French market. In the Transavia Classic Tour you will fly across Europe on some routes that were ever operated by a Transavia.com brand.

Note, only 3 legs a day are allowed.


If there is any question, dont hesitate to ask!

tours@transavia-virtual.com
I wish you a great adventure in the Classic tour 2018!

Kind Regards,
Flight Ops.

  NEW beta liveries by: Danny Lemckert @ 09-11-2018 10:22z    
 Dear pilots,

As we are starting to re-develop our va, we want to come up with some additional updates on our liveries. We have selected two liveries to start with: PH-HSJ and the PH-HZE. They are available at our liveries page.


This additional livery update concludes:
-> Preformatted .ini file for correct cockpit set-up.
-> Additional cockpit textures.
-> Additional cabin texture
-> Additional weathering textures.
-> New aircraft thumbnail (PMDG OPS Center)

To install ini:
Drag and overwrite the ini file from the .zip into TRA_*REG* folder. (ex. PH-HSJ.ini goes to TRA_HSJ texture folder). VERY important is to check, the PH-HSJ should boot with the Collins config, were the HZE should boot with the Honeywell config.

To install weathering:
Drag and overwrite both files to the TRA_*REG* folder.

Please give us feedback on how you think about the updates and if the .ini file works.

Contact Danny: danny.lemckert@transavia-virtual.com

 The news messages earlier on our Facebook page:

Hi All,

From what I have heard, there are massive problems with the website. I really don\'t know the exact problems.

This moment Wouter and I are on holiday, I am in the Dominican Republic and with a huge time-difference between Holland and here and also with a full day of excursion I was not able to make contact with the hoster about these problems today.

I just send the hoster an email, but now it\'s already midnight and also weekend in Holland. So they will read it somewhere on Monday.

Our apologies for the problems.

Kind regards,
Raymond van der Ploeg

  Bug in Costumer Options packag by: Raymond van der Ploeg @ 14-09-2016 18:46z    
 Hi All,

We have discovered some very weird errors in the Costumer Options package that was created. It seems that some of the configuration items will not install as they must be. Just to give you an example the Head Up Display is showing on the PH-GUB with a person but an other person the HUD is not showing as it must do. The same is happening whit the MCP settings.

We will try to see for a solution, and perhaps we discovered a little bug in the PMDG software. Thanks for the persons for reporting!

Regards
Flight.Ops

  Customer Options by: Danny Lemckert @ 01-09-2016 12:52z    
 Our Customer Options document has got a big make-over. This document allows pilots to fly with the correct cockpit and aircraft equipment who are used in real life. Read the instructions carefully, it comes with a .zip file with different cockpit settings per aircraft REG series. This document is available under documents => NGX Customer options HV/TVF fleet.

  Loading Instruction by: Danny Lemckert @ 22-06-2016 06:52z    
 Dear pilots,

One of the most important factors during a flight preperation, is the loading instruction (only bagage). Based on the actual real-life loading instruction, a new document has been made and uploaded to our website. This document includes multiple examples of calculations and weights.

The \'\'Loading Instruction\'\' document can be found at:
Flight Ops => Documents => Loading Instruction

Goodluck!

  Taxi vs takeoff/landing light config by: Danny Lemckert @ 10-06-2016 13:31z    
 Did you know?

Pilots use different configurations between taxi and takeoff/landing.

Taxi
-> Runway turnoff lights.
-> Taxilight.

Takeoff en landing
-> Fixed landing lights.
-> *Retractable landing lights. (after receiving clearance)
-> Strobe lights.

* Retractable lights off after 10.000ft or above 250kts.
* Not all aircraft are equipped with retractable landing lights. The new 737MAX dont have retractables and the switches are removed from the flightdeck.

Happy Flying!

  PH-GUV online! by: Raymond van der Ploeg @ 22-03-2016 21:28z    
 Hi All,

The first airplane from GOL is imported in the current timetable. This means the NGX paint can be downloaded from the liveries page.

Unlike previous years you can\'t see any orange GOL details, so no orange engine or what so ever. This has to do with the fact that these planes will remain for a longer time in the Netherlands.

Regards,
Raymond

PS: Jonah thanks for the paint!

  Wintertour almost ready by: Raymond van der Ploeg @ 20-11-2015 08:32z    
 




  Winter and transavia france online! by: Raymond van der Ploeg @ 15-11-2015 10:22z    
 


Dear Pilots,

The wintertimetable 2015/2016 is released! this means a quantity of flights to winterdestinations but also the flight to the winter sun are available. De famous flights to Innsbruck, Salzburg, Rovaniemi are also will be available again.

As we announced earlier, new this season and new to the virtual airline is the introduction of Transavia France! this means not only flight out of the The Netherlands but also out of France like airports as Paris Orly, Nantes and Lyon. Despite that Transavia France also flying on the same destinations as the dutch part of Transavia they have also their own destinations like Munich, Dublin and Tunis.

When flying for Transavia France you have to realize that their callsign is FRANCE SOLEIL and not as you using with TRA flightplan as callsign TRANSAVIA. The flights in the timetable are also beginning with code TVF. Also when flying online on Vatsm or IVAO the ATC will see you as Transavia France (TVF/TO). When not using this correctly you will be notified and also notify each other.

With the introduction of Transavia France we have some new rules and updated rules. We ask you to read them carefully. What mainly is changed is the correct use of the callsigns but also the use of adhoc flights since you are able now to fly these flight under TVF in or to France airports.

3.2 At all times you are required to login on both networks with a TRA or TVF callsign which can be found at the corresponding flight in the timetable or via events and tours.
3.2a Doing a TRA flight the callsign used is \"transavia\"
3.2b Doing a TVF flight the callsign used is \"france soleil\"

3.7a The adhoc/positioning flights under an TRA callsign are carried out to or from Dutch airports only.
3.7b The adhoc/positioning flights under an TVF callsign are carried out to or from French airports only.
3.7c The flights need to depart or arrive in the area of this map.

When you have any questions left, please mail us or use the forum.

Kind Regards,
Raymond van der Ploeg

More info will follow via our Facebook page and the forum. There will be some changes for you as pilot and also our rules will change slightly in some ways.
