*New Members Probationary Period*
When new members join, they are given a 30-day or 5 flight introductory period (whichever comes first) where flight report managers are
more sympathetic of errors in flight reports. Guidance may be offered to the member instead of rejecting
the flight. UK virtual expects new members to accept the guidance and not exploit the privilege of having
an introductory period. Those who exploit the introductory period will be treated like existing members.
At UK virtual our rules and regulations are minimal but fair. We want everyone to enjoy UK virtual's community together, so please read the page below before you complete your first flight
UK virtual does not have a minimum age to join, but we run a policy of segregation for anyone under 18 years of age on the Discord server. "UK virtual Cadets" will be allocated to an U18 only room in Discord and no over 18 members will have access to, or view of this room apart from UK virtual staff. All flight schedules and tours will be available to Cadets, but the upcoming Aero club may have some restrictions on usage, mainly around group VFR flights. UK virtual group flights will not be extended to Cadets, however we may organise Cadet only group flights if there is enough uptake.
- All Members are to treat each other with respect and courtesy.
- Directors and staff are responsible for the operations of UK virtual, their guidance and instructions should always be followed. Directors can take any action they feel necessary without warning but this will always be followed by an explanation.
- Members can fly for multiple VA's but are not allowed to track any flights for another VA while flying for UK virtual.
- All members personal details are safeguarded and will never be sold or given to third parties. Removal of any account details can be achieved through an email to [email protected]
- All members are required to sign up to Discord when joining UK virtual, and monitor it for news and changes. Members are encouraged to use Discord to meet our online community, however it is not mandatory while logging a flight for UK virtual.
- Members are required to log in using their Union number and First name, eg: UNI100
- Members will only receive member status by a moderator once they have flown their first flight.
