If you are already flying online on one of the networks, you may directly proceed to step 2. Otherwise, first apply for membership at IVAO or Vatsim and obtain a user ID for the network.
Fill in the registration form and submit it to our validator. If everything is OK, you will be invited for a written multiple choice exam consisting of basic questions related to flying.
After having passed this written exam with satisfactory result, you will be invited to make a circuit flight with a Cessna 172 at the home field of our Flight Academy in Eelde.
If your circuit flight is a success, we proudly welcome you as another of our valued pilots and you can start your career at the KLM-VA as First Officer.
Some important notes:
Right from the start, you are completely free to pick up any aircraft you like and fly anywhere you like, to have fun and enjoy your membership. The only obligation you have is to make a flight at least once a month.
If you already have a PP or higher rating at IVAO, or alternatively if you have a P3 or higher ranking at Vatsim, you will become a full member without having to participate in the exams.
If you don’t like the idea of having to take part in exams, we offer you another possibility to become one of our valued pilots: our starter rank, First Officer, is open to anyone having the IVAO FS1/2/3 ranking or the Vatsim P1 ranking, without any need for further exams! Of course, if you would like to earn higher rankings you will have to take part in the practical exams. Another way of opening up the higher ranks is to make sufficient flight hours, the minimum number in the first year of your membership being 50. If neither of these opportunities is used, we will terminate your membership after this first year.
