About Us

projectFLY is a Virtual Aviation Environment created by and built around you, the user! In simple terms it is a versatile platform allowing you to give or take as much from your hobby as you would like. Whether you simply wish to fly from point A to point B in your Cessna without any realistic procedures, want to follow the path of a real Pilot through their training and type rating ready to simulate that daily routine of a Low Cost Carrier Pilot or even if you simply want a community of like-minded individuals, then we can provide you the resources for this. Whatever it is you want from your hobby we hope you will find in projectFLY.

So, what sort of features are we to expect from projectFLY?

At the risk of sounding like a broken record, there is a lot in the works that we simply can't show or tell you about right now. This is because the idea is either being designed or at a stage where it is highly likely to change or we simply don't have anything to show you. Here are a few things that we can tell you about, and a brief description of what to expect:

  • Sandbox Mode

    Sandbox mode provides you the ability to fly any aircraft on any route at any time without the need to enter The Academy or rack up a silly amount of hours. You have complete control over what you do. Flights conducted when in Sandbox mode do not count towards career mode.

  • Career Mode

    This is the mode for those diehard realism fans. You will embark on a journey similar to those pursuing a real career in Aviation. You start at the bottom, working your way towards your PPL and progress onto your CPL and ATPL before finally going on to your type-rating for that Airbus A380 (or aircraft of choice) ready to start flying it to the same standards as the real deal! But fear not! If you decide you want to jump in your 777 before you have your type rating then you are free to do so by changing back to Sandbox, all your career mode progress will be saved and waiting for you when you come back.

  • The Academy

    Again this one is pretty simple. The Academy will provide you the resources and platform to work towards those virtual achievements. This can be courses such as VATSIM / IVAO / Pilotedge / FSCloud ratings and virtual PPL/CPL/ATPL/Type Ratings (see Career Path above), or individual lessons on specifics such as reading charts or flying a non-precision approach.

  • Community

    As with all sites of this calibre we have a custom built community system for all to enjoy as standard. You are all familiar with forums and their purpose so I shall leave this one here.

  • Support System

    Being stuck on something or finding a bug is never enjoyable which is why we have developed a custom made Support Ticket system for all to use. This system will ensure that all users (and those using the contact forms) will get a quick response from the relevant department or person.

Thank you for your continued interest in projectFLY.
