Welcome to Houston, the Lone Star home of Virtual United Airlines. The merger of Continental and United grew Houston into the largest HUB in the system. As a result of this milestone, I hope our HUB members can operate within the HUB and VA at large, always mindful of the size of the HUB and how it fits into the global operation of the VA.
It should come as no surprise - even in the real world - that 'numbers crunching' and performance stats play KEY roles in the day-to-day operations of the VA. Consequently, reviewing the big picture of the Houston HUB, all of our members should go ahead and take ‘credit’ for having the highest number of P1-rated pilots in the entire VA system. That's impressive guys. Really!
With close to 8,500 VATSIM hours, 6+ years as a VATSIM member in good standing and as a VATSIM Controller, there are few questions and situations I've not encountered at least once before. Congratulations to our HUB members.
Let’s continue to grow the VA (and our HUB) by including 'www.unitedvirtualairlines.org' in the comment section of our VATSIM/Pilot Client software. Houston HUB will continue to reflect the size, significance and important role it plays within the VA.
If you have questions, suggestions or concerns, jump on Teamspeak, post to the HUB section on our forums or shoot me an email. Three ‘Greens’ and Blue Skies.
Your Houston Hub Manager,
KIAH Hub Manager
