MetroAir Virtual University now Open!!!

January 1, 2011. After weeks of preparation, Metro Air Virtual is proud to announce the opening of Metro Air Virtual University. This program has been developed in order to aid in the education of all Metro Pilots from Brand New to Seasoned Veteran. Based on interest and his experience with many Virtual Airlines, Ken Adams has been asked to act as the Coordinator of this program. When asked about this new endeavor Adams said “I am absolutely honored and excited about MVU, the confidence and support from the staff has been overwhelming, I hope I can serve this cause on at the same standard as they would.”

MVU will begin its operation by offering every new pilot to Metro the opportunity to participate in the Mentor Program. This is designed to help each and every pilot become more familiar and comfortable with what we have to offer here at Metro Virtual. There are plans to add different programs for every pilot involved at MVA from Metro Gold program helping set those pilots that want to learn and extend their virtual aeronautical knowledge to special certifications on different aircraft flown my Metro. These programs will open very soon, the Mentorship Program is now open and there are pilots enrolled. Adams expressed “too often in a virtual airline we as pilots reach a plateau, these programs will continue to give each and every pilot something else to shoot for and obtain, keeping it fresh.” He also added ” I am very excited with the possibility of teaming up with VATSIM in their educational and training programs in the near future!”

The vision of many staff members of Metro, Adams is simply “glad to be a part of making Metro Virtual that much better.” When we spoke to Matt Calsada, he added “We are very happy to have this program rolling out to our pilots, and confident in Ken as our choice to head this large project up. It is always our goal to keep the virtual experience fresh and on the cutting edge of the hobby. With the opening MVU we are confident that we are keeping up with the industry standard.”
