If you are reading this document, we are very glad to make you interested for us. Thank you.

We do not want to bother you with hard examinations to become our pilot. The virtual flying should be fun in first. However, we do not play an arcade game, but simulation. So an incoming pilot must go through a few steps, but do not be afraid, it’s not so hard!

So, how’s the career path in Brown Pelicans…

Applying for higher pilot rank right after join


Many of us have experiences with virtual flying on another platforms or networks. Maybe someone is not satisfied with his actual VA on FSAirlines or (s)he is an experienced pilot from IVAO, VATSIM or similar platforms.

It’d be very strange to ask these people to start from the bottom. We’d appreciate the interest of such a pilot to join us.

So if you are an experienced pilot do not hesitate to prove your skills and ask for higher rank after joining us.
