    • You are not allowed to log your Sky Hungarian Airlines flight to another VA at the same time. Please remember, using different callsign than SHA is also prohibited.

  3. Obtaining licenses

    Our virtual airline pay special attention to the preparedness. Pilots are required to take exams and obtain licenses. We also provide training to reach these goals.

    • You have to optain type rating (license) for every aircraft type (or family) that you want to fly.
    • Experienced pilots may receive temporary type ratings without exams. These licenses will be reviewed based on the received PIREP logs.
    • For online flights (to represent our VA) we require additional licenses.
    • Exams may include theoretical and practical parts too.
    • It is prohibited to use any tool for the exam. The examiner may take exception in some cases.
    • You have to answer the questions on your own, further it is forbidden to take an exam instead of somebody else.
      In case someone from the VA helped for the applicant, the VA member also can face sanctions. Training is allowed prior the exam, except the hand over of the exact questions and the correct answers for them.
    • In case we notice that someone cheated during the exam, the exam will be marked as invalid and has to be completed again. In serious or repeated cases we may use other sanctions too (eg. removal of licenses, ban or delete of the account).
