Ratings & Company points

Ratings reflect the amount of practice that you have achieved with the KLM-VA, based on time spent on controls and number of company points acquired.
Let us first take a look at how you can earn company points at the KLM-VA:
The system of KLM-VA Company Points was first introduced in 2015. The system aims to make it more attractive for our pilots to remain with our VA and to participate in the events our Events Department organises. It provides a head start for pilots taking part in events, making use of the facilities of the KLM-VA Flight Academy and taking responsibility for appointments they have made when participating in events, thereby reflecting a pilot ‘s commitment to our VA.
Please view the table below for ways in which you can earn Company Points:

For every flight you have filed in our KLM-VA pirep system and that has been accepted by our validator:
For participating in a one-day KLM-VA event, if you have signed up (allowed until the starting hour of the event):
These points will add to the points you earn for the flight and the flight hours
Flying a leg of one of our Tours:
These points will add to the points you earn for the flight and the flight hours
Finishing a complete Tour:
These are extra points you obtain for completing a Tour and these add to the other points for legs, flights and hours
VA merits
E.g.: for every learning module you participate in at the KLM-VA Flight Academy
No show
If you sign up for an event and don't show up, we will subtract points, independently of the reason why you didn't show, unless you have signed off. Sign off is allowed until midnight before the day of the event

The Company Points system works without any special action needed to be taken by the pilot. Points earned will be added automatically to your KLM-VA account. In detail: the flight hours and number of flights are added fully automatically through our website. The points for participation in events and FA-modules are added (or – this hopefully does not occur too often: subtracted) by the Events Coordinator and the Flight Academy Coordinator. To grant the Company Points for events, the Events Coordinator can only take into account participants that have signed up for the event. With most of our one-off events, you can sign up until the event starts. If you already have signed in, but are not able to participate, then you should sign off from the event. This is possible until midnight before the event starts. In that way you avoid that there are points subtracted from your company points account. The ratings of our KLM-VA pilots are based upon this Company Point system. Promoting to higher ranks, you will not only need Company Points, but also flying hours. Please see the table below:

And lastly: for those pilots who have passed their IVAP exam at IVAO (FS3) or have done our written admittance test (also FS1 and FS2), but have not (yet) successfully made their test flight at EHGG, only the First Officer rank is open, regardless the number of Company Points or flight hours they may have accumulated.
