We noticed heavy losses in flying due to the Corona Pandemic. Furthermore our INTRANET was not able to cope with the new PHP. So the staff decided to create a new platform (INTRANET). The test phases begin.
Due in part to the Corona crisis and the resulting closure of many companies, many virtual pilots were able to stay at home. This combination resulted in a record month in virtual airspace. More than 150 flights (26.03.2020) of the virtual Edelweiss could emerge.
A training group flight to Tirana to practice take-offs and landings. Many great impressions and very instructive 6 pilots came back from this flight day.
The 4th year started for our virtual airline. After a very positive General Assembly, a complete staff could be generated. Claudio Reist, Fabian Haueter, Devis Pisano Push again into the staff. Furthermore, wizards were created for the respective areas. Assistants were among others Luca Schär and the Norwege Fabian Kemi. Furthermore, EDWv was able to establish a close friendship with its sister sister, Swiss Virtual. Next, the club is now with 16 members as big as ever.
There was again a group flight, to Tromso with 8 aircraft of our fleet.
The Edelweiss Virtual is already 3 years old, at the General Assembly with 8 present a nearly full staff could be chosen.
