In these countries, aircraft is the best way to connect people. South America counts thousands of simmers, including in Ecuador. Here is a fresh report from Boris Forero himself on Tame Virtual birthday.
This event has been celebrated at Quito Air Base on Sep. 3rd. with assistance of nearly 65 virtual pilotos, real pilots and of aviation enthusiastics in general. It was the 14th meeting of the virtual airline, celebrating 5 years of activity.
The real airline, TAME (http://www.tame.com.ec/), provided a lot of support and their president was very interested in the idea of developing a Virtual Airline with its brand.
In the meeting, the designer Boris Forero and people talked about online flights, share experiences, do demonstrative flights, and ATC. Some pilots are real air traffic controllers and TAME paid them a visit aboard an Embraer 190 (see picture below).
Finally, the best virtual pilots of the VA have been rewarded with souvenirs and free tickets in domestic TAME routes and one to... Galapagos Islands to the virtual pilot of the year.
Boris Forero : " We do this meetings every six months, in January at Guayaquil and August/September at Quito".
