   THE VAP AIR FLEET GETS A BRAND NEW HELICOPTER !!
   Yes, it's finally here!   Our grateful thanks to painter JULIEN LEBRUN from Canada who
  is also known as DARKANGEL1017 on Flightsim.To, for painting the new BELL 407 in
  the livery of my private airline, VAP AIR.   I have released a short video showcasing
  this new aircraft, flying over KYIV, UKRAINE.   The video can be found using THIS link.







   The Navigraph  FlightSim Community Survey 2022 is now CLOSED . . . .      
   The annual Navigraph FlightSim Community Survey for 2022 has now closed.   So now we wait to see what conclusions they have drawn from

  all of your collective answers!   Coming soon!
 


   We focus on a single developer - XCODR DESIGNS - with reviews of Sedona, Yellowstone and Grand Canyon West Airports . . .
   With the first video in this 3-part series now available, next week we will complete the set by showcasing SEDONA Airport and the simply

  stunning RED ROCK scenery, before finally showing you GRAND CANYON WEST Airport and the famous Sky-Platform amongst other things

  Airport (1G4) to see the famous SKY PLATFORM lookout post and the
  airport located nearby just 2 miles away.    Just how good is it?   Join

  LOS ANGELES POLICE, AIR DIVISION - A REPAINT & VIDEO

   Again, thanks to painter Julien Lebrun who painted the VAP AIR livery, he
  has kindly painted this FICTIONAL livery of the California Highway
  Patrol (CHP) onto the MSFS Bell 407.   Originally, this paint job is found
  on the Bell 206B helicopter, but Julien has painted it at my request, so I
  can fly her out of Hooper's Heliport and around the Los Angeles area.
  Julien does not usually release fictional paints to the public, but if I get
  enough requests, I might try to persuade him!  Message me if you would
  like it released.   Thank you Julien








   TWO new Videos released this last week, including one video showcasing some problems with the new EPWA Warsaw scenery.    Check out

  I was asked recently during a live flight, about the use of the flight code VAP for my private airline and so I decided to post an ORIGIN page to
  show the research I did to enable me to use this code from the now defunct South American airline that previously used it.    So check out the 
  new 
ORIGIN OF VAP AIR page!       

   Future Developments . . . 

  More Reviews still to come !

  WELL, WHAT'S ALL THIS ABOUT THEN . . . . . . ?

 

Hello and welcome to my site.   I have been a home Desktop Virtual Pilot for over

30 years.   Whilst I was once a former beta tester for Microsoft UK, way back in the

day and have been involved with flying full size, home built Flight Simulators as

part of a Team of Virtual Pilots raising money for charity, I now fly airliners across

the world for a small group of Virtual Airlines with dedicated volunteers.   You will

find them listed on my ABOUT ME page.   I have over 14,000 virtual flying hours

and these days, I am getting into video capture and editing.   Flight Simulation lends

itself really well to this kind of thing and so, by way of these pages, I would like to try

and show you what goes on in the virtual flying world and give you a flavour of the Aircraft, the Pilots, the Scenery available for the main Simulation Platforms and to discuss bits and pieces in a regular blog.   As the new Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 product has now been released, I will also be exploring this new Simulation developed by Asobo Studios and led by the Microsoft Team who created the source of our obsession in the first place!!    This site is a work in progress so please bear with me as I build the site and add content.   Thank you for visiting ....

VAP AIR - My Virtual Airline
Scenery Highlights & Reviews
Hi There!
 ALL ABOUT VIRTUALAIRLINEPILOT . . . .

VirtualAirlinePilot  is a new project to build a Brand and a Private Virtual Airline.   I will  be show-casing video content, Adventure Flights and Reviews about new and current products for Flight Simulator 2020 and Prepar3D.   I have purchased the Premium Edition  of MSFS2020 and so will be examining and evaluating this product and other related topics that both you and I find interesting too.   As I get used to using my video software (Vegas Movie Studio 18), I will be producing flying videos as often as I can, mainly each week on a SATURDAY around 12:00GMT, featuring these products, as well as ADVENTURE FLIGHTS featuring some of my more interesting landings and takeoffs from across the virtual world for my own Airline VAP AIR and the virtual airlines that I fly for.   I also have a very good friend and flying buddy, NEIL WARMAN, who got me into this video thing in the first place and with whom I fly online frequently!   Check out Neil's YouTube Channel VIRTUAL FLIGHT VIDEOS for some great videos and streams!   Videos will be available on my YouTube Channel with notifications and links to those videos posted here on my site too.   Thank you for your kind interest in my project.   Lee James (The Captain) - West Sussex UK
