Welcome to All African Airways Group Flights
At All African Airways, we encourage pilot participation on many different levels. One of which, is with our regular Group Flights, where we may all enjoy and share our passion for our flight simulation hobby, together with our fellow virtual aviation enthusiasts.
We therefore have a standing invitation for all pilots to participate in our VA Group Flights, which will (until further notice) be conducted every Sunday-evening, at 17h00Z (19h00 Local SA time).
The details about a specific Group flight event will be agreed to and communicated via Discord, during the preceding week.
Although Group Flight participation will always be voluntary, we do encourage all our members to join us (Online and via Discord) at the time.
And remember that, once you've participated in 5 Group Flights, you'll be awarded with our 5 Group Flight award, which will be proudly visible on your pilot profile. (Just please let us know once your eligible for this merit badge.)
