My fellow pilots!
I’m excited to officially roll out our 2020 re-boot of AFKLM ATC Operations. Led by @Jamal [ATC Operation Manager], we’ve restructured our ATC platform feature (1) a new event series for IFATC-rated Airmen, (2) to help non-IFATC pilots to learn more about ATC and provide coverage for VA events on TS Server, and finally (3) to provide a direct communication channel to give VA pilots constant feedback on best practices for flying/communicating properly with IFATC.
How It Works:
We hope you enjoy these new updates, seek out knowledge, and that you take advantage of the platform to improve your overall flight experience.
Here’s to an amazing 2020 for AFKLM and for all of us together in the Infinite Skies!
Hello to all AFKLM Airmen,
Here's a summary of the re-worked AFKLM Events platform under our new Event Manager Alex V. Some events will continue, some will be suspended, and other new events will also be added.
Here's everything you need to know!
Please be advised that beginning February 1st we are making several changes to our AFKLM Classic and AFKLM Career Mode flight operating systems. Among these, include:

I hope you are excited for these changes as we continuously seek to improve the overall quality of the VA experience we offer you.
Cheers and keep flying!
You've been waiting, you knew it was coming, and now here it is! The Official AFKLM Virtual 3YR Anniversary Big Event is now open for registration
.Join us on February 1st to celebrate the three-year anniversary of the VA that we all love. Hope you feel good to hear that! This is the perfect opportunity to show to the entire IF Community who we are, and what we call the “AFKLM Power” by flying together! I've designed the event to let us have fun by flying the AF and KLM colors.
Our two main hubs — LFPG and EHAM — will be featured as the departing airports. From there, you will have the option to fly either a quick flight to LFPG or EHAM, or long-haul to several of the amazing destinations across the globe that are serviced by AFKLM. I hope you are excited! All routes details with gates, aircrafts and flight informations are posted on the IFC thread, here you go!
That's it! You are ready for departure! I hope you will have a good time flying our colors together and celebrating the AFKLM spirit. Let's keep aiming for the future!
