Oakland (OAK) Base Information

From The Desk of the Crew Base Manager

Welcome to The Bay Area Crew Base!

On behalf of the entire staff and pilots here at Southwest Virtual Airlines, we welcome you to the Southwest Virtual Crew Base located at the Metropolitan Oakland International Airport (ICAO:KOAK) and serving all four bay area airports serviced by SWAvirtual. These airports include KSFO, KSJC, and KSMF. Just like real life KOAK crew base supports all airports with pilots and relief crews.

With minimum of one Pilot Report(PiRep) per every 30 days, even the casual armchair pilot can benefit from SWA Virtual. The Bay Area Crew Base is a great place for pilots that are just starting out. I make my self available on our company's TeamSpeak server, several times a week, in case you need some "in-person" help with either the your Boeing 737 aircraft, Vatsim/ATC, ACARS, flight planning, or any other questions that you may have about Southwest Virtual Airlines and flight simulation. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me for help or any others on the teamspeak.
