Today marks the 7th anniversary of virtualaca.net. Founded in 2010, we started with the simple goal of building community. Our VA wasn't going to be based on exams, checkrides, and specific hours, but rather on having our members simply enjoy flight simulation and share their experiences. We've had so many great members here over the years, and we want to take the time to thank you for building our VA to what it is today. Without the members, virtualACA does not exist. We have a truly unique VA that is unlike any other VA out there. We offer over 11,600 routes to over 800 destinations across all 6 inhabited continents, not something other VA's can say. Over the years many VA's will be founded or try to adapt to our model (imitation is the most sincere form of flattery), but none come even close to emulating us, if they even stay online. 7 years is a long time for a VA to operate, and we are here for the long run. We as a staff love getting to volunteer our free time to this hobby in order to make this the best place on the internet to fly. And 17,000 PIREPs later, it seems like it is going well. There are still plenty of areas we can improve on, and that's somethingwe have bee addressing and will be working on, but we are so excited to be here and to work with everyone. Some of us even had an opportunity to meet in Toronto last year for lunch, making it the first time members like Christopher, Graham, and Mike were able to meet in person! In conclusion, thank you all for making this VA extrondinary over the las 7 years. Here's to many more!
