Great. It will be easy to build up my IVAO hours, whilst scenery and aircraft testing. I guess that wouLd help keep up JHB hours, if we were in?

call any ATC.

I'm registered and can get on line. Just comms problems to sort. I tried to
log on whilst doing Brawdy test circuits today. Not
connecting was finger trouble. Is this type of on line VFR flying, with
no radio contact but flightplan submitted, allowed?

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*,
  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 code.

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 callsigns.

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?
