Dallas (DAL) Base Information

From The Desk of the Crew Base Manager

Welcome to Dallas, Texas!

I want to welcome both old and new pilots to the DAL Crew Base, Southwest Virtual Airlines' corporate headquarters.

Here is a little history about your Crew Base here in Dallas. There is a long history between Southwest Airlines and Dallas Love Field. In the early 1960s, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) decided Love Field in Dallas could not handle future air traffic, and refused to continue federal funding for them. In 1979 the Wright bill was enacted, which basically restricted some destinations and number of passengers that Southwest Airlines and Love Field could handle. This was done because the other airlines that had moved to DFW felt it unfair that Southwest could stay and operate out of Love Field. On October 13, 2014, the amendment was repealed, allowing airlines to fly from Love Field to any city in America.

I think of Southwest Virtual Airlines as the pilots airline. We have enough real world structure to feel real, but enough latitude to keep it fun and interesting. I have been in hub management for many years, and have found a few things to will keep you in good standing. Do not fly the Concorde, do not refuel in mid flight, and show up for work (DAL is not a parking lot). If you have an issue with a flight or you system, let me know as soon as possible. If you do this we can resolve almost anything.

I want to invite everyone to get involved with Teamspeak and the events we have. These are great places to make friends and pick up a wealth of knowledge. Hope to see you in the air soon.

Also, if you're not currently a member of the Facebook Southwest Virtual Airlines group, you should think about joining. It's a great place to reach out to your fellow pilots and staff members, when you can't get on teamspeak! Your membership will be verified against the flight roster before access is granted.
