  The rules for a VA on IVAO are as follows:

  To become a member VA of IVAO, your VA must satisfy the following:

    1.. Your VA should be a freeware, non commercial, non profit, organization 
    2.. Be active in IVAO. 
    3.. Be operational. If not operational, your request will be removed. 
    4.. Have at least 10 pilots active members of IVAO. 
    5.. Have a functional website. If the VA is under construction your 
application will be rejected automatically. 
    6.. IVAO deserves the right to remove the VA from VA System and/or our 
databases without any advise neither explanation if HQ decide it. 
    7.. Only IVAO member VAs will have the right to maintain a registered ICAO 
  In addition the VA must fly at least 5 hours on average per week.

  If we do the above I have to send an application in with several logos and a 
request to use the JHB code. Until that time pilots should not log in using JHB 

  We have become rather slack in radio operations in PCI. With virtually having 
the system to ourselves we have tended to use the main channel for chat and 
JHB_OPS has become less active. When more pilots were around in PCI we were a 
lot better. Now you are moving to IVAO the radio is much more strictly 
controlled - and we don't have the advantage of a second channel either. That 
means you cannot stay on the JHB frequency all the time - you can only jump to 
it by requesting permission from ATC to leave the operational frequency. This 
may be allowed but not for long if you are in the air.

  The first thing to check is how many of you are now registered with IVAO and 
active. If we can get the quota required and guarantee the minimum hours each 
week then I can go ahead with an application.

    Hi Bones

    I logged in on EGNS_TWR on IVAO last night with Frank paul and tom was 
around but had trouble logging in, but then I got an msg from IVAO sup say that 
we should not use the frequency for general talk. Frank said that we have to 
set up a club frequency with IVAO sup which would be a good idea. So we could 
have the same on PCI and IVAO. JHB_FLY and JHB_ATC or some think? 

    What do you think, we could use them for club training as well?
