NOTAM: Big Changes in Ranks and Service Hrs. LIVE
Posted by Tom Detlefsen on Wednesday, March 10, 2021

ATTN: All PAY PILOTS, Changes below are now effective as of March 2021
Take the time to review the new OPS Manual v2.6

We have made a complete change in the Rank and Promotion Hours to get to the fun faster. This will open up new flight tables and aircraft to lower Ranking pilots.

New Rank Hours:

First officer 0-19
Captain 20-39
ATP First Officer 40-79
ATP Captain 80-299
ATP Senior Captain- GA certified 300 - 599
ATP Commander - MC club member 600 - 999
ATP Senior Commander - Elite Pilot 1000 +
Pacific Lifetime Member 3000+

*** The Fun Starts Here ***

ATP First Officer, At 40hrs, Remains the same as before opening up the fleet as is outlined in the Ops Manual v2.6

ATP Senior Captains, At 300hrs, Pilots will be allowed to fly any GA aircraft anywhere they want and log the flight hours.
(Logged under Special flight type)

This simulation will be that the pilot either owns or rents the GA aircraft to make their flight. We will not paint or have any routes for GA flights.

This brings the FS2020 pilots on board with GA at 300 instead of 1000hrs.

ATP Commander, At 600hrs, pilots will enter the Millennium Club.

The club will be a less restrictive more virtual part of the airline where the main routes/planes will mirror real-world operations.
Pilots will be able to fly any of the approved Club Aircraft anywhere they want.
(logged under Special flight type)

Pilots will also be allowed to view the Millennium Club Forum Page with the rights to download aircraft and chat with the members.

ATP Senior Commander, At 1000+ hrs, pilots will have earned the rank of Elite Status.
The elite status allows pilots to fly any of our aircraft anywhere they want outside of our flight routes and log their flights as Scheduled, or Special.

Pacific Lifetime Member, At 3000+ hrs,
The 3000+ hour pilot will now earn the status of a lifetime membership with Pacific Airways [P.L.M.]. As a lifetime member, the system will no longer warn you if you don't fly a flight line within a month or terminate you ever.

As a lifetime member, we will no longer require you to fly once per month to stay active in the system.

Our Regional Directors will still check on you if you haven't flown for a period of time and check your status. Lifetime members will only be terminated manually when necessary and not automatically by the system.
