Virtual United Academy

Welcome to the Virtual United Academy!

The Training Academy was founded to provide a place for pilots to improve their skills and knowledge with instruction and material study.

We offer both general training for any faucet of flying the pilot is interested in, and specialized training for the VATSIM network. Participating in the Training Academy is not a requirement for vUAL membership, but it is highly encouraged if you have never flown with a VA before. We can give you the tools you need to satisfy whatever level of flying you're most comfortable with.

The Academy is a VATSIM Authorized Training Organization (ATO), which means we are certified to train pilots for VATSIM pilot ratings. Currently we offer the VATSIM P1 Online Pilot rating, which is designed to get you up and running on the VATSIM network, especially if you have never flown online before. The P2 course is scheduled to be completed by Fall of 2013.

Please note that enrollment in the Academy is ONLY for attaining a VATSIM pilot rating. If you're not interested in VATSIM pilot ratings and looking for general training from an instructor, you do NOT need to enroll. For those seeking pilot ratings, click here to enroll. We look forward to helping you in any way we can!

Who teaches at the Academy?

All of our instructors are required to earn the ratings they teach, and some have real-world flying experience that they can share with students to help build their skills as they fly online with the VATSIM network.
