Latest News

All new Pilots starting with ID SWA11000 will need to use LUVCARs 4 in order to complete flights using an automated logging system. This is because the new IDs will not fit into the log in box on LUVCARs 3 and previous versions. LUVCARs 4 is a stable release of our custom ACARs system and is our preferred method of PIREP submission. For any questions, please contact us!

Attention All Pilots!!!

Come join us for another great group flight with your southwest team. This week we will be taking over Pittsburgh International Airport as our departure and storming into Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport for our arrival. Halloween is just around the corner and what better way to celebrate than with a flight. As usual all charts/diagrams will be provided. For the staffing (ATC) of the airports, it is still yet to be determined. With many of our amazing flights in the past they have all taken place in the evenings of the day. Now, I understand that we have pilots from all over the world and in many different countries. I would hate for some people to miss out on a flight because of that reason, which is why this flight is going to push our times a little out of the “norm”. This flight will take place on 10/30/16. We will have a pre-departure briefing at 10:30am EDT or 1430z. Once again, if you are not here for the briefing we will not be waiting up for you. Please email me if you will be attending the flight, but might miss the briefing. We will be having an expected push-back time of around 11:00am EDT or 1500z. This flight is about a 2 hour flight excluding time at the gate. To avoid any confusion about getting clearance and listening to the briefing please have your clearance by the time the briefing starts. Feel free to load up at any gate you want as well (Southwest uses any Alpha terminal gates). I encourage all of our pilots, including those not in the USA come join us. If you have any questions or concerns please email me. See you in the skies:)

In the Regional Circuit, controllers fully staff two regional airports, providing complete 'gate-to-gate' coverage over the three-hour event. The focus airports are typically 80-200nm apart, and a high volume of pilots operating in this compressed airspace means the Regional Circuit provides optimal conditions for congested frequencies and busy airways. (8-11 EDT)

Departure: -    Arrival: -


Its that time of year to polish the Skis and snowboards and hit your favorite slopes. Denver is in high demand of Pilots to fly these skiers in and out. Its a busy time of the year for Colorado, so put on that warm layer of clothing, ride the chair lifts up the mountain, enjoy the beautiful Scenery and make your way down the powdery slopes of the greatest Ski country in the world. 2300Z-0300z
