A while back we shared that we were going to make changes to the website. The changes we were looking at were to make the experience for you, the pilot, more engaged and personal with FedEx VAC. Well, as you have noticed, these changes have never been made. We found in our process of change, that our current ACARS system brings about an abundant amount of challenges for our vision. For this reason, we have decided to switch our entire ACARS system. This will allow us to bring you, the pilot, a better and more engaging purpose to your time here at FedEx VAC. This change is in the process of being built as you are reading this and will be implemented by the end of March, hopefully before. I can assure you that your hours and flight totals will stay as will our commitment to your flight freedom but the overall experience with FedEx VAC will be greater. If you have questions about this switch, please feel free to jump onto our Teamspeak and I would be happy to share with you where we are at so far. You can open a ticket if you have any concerns.
Due to this task of preparation, we are suspending all reinstatement requests until the new system is up and running. This means that if you were removed for inactivity, you will still need to inform us of your reinstatement request via the support system but your reinstatement will not take place until the switch over is completed and migration of current pilots is complete.
Until this time, it is business as usual and all current and active pilots are encouraged to continue flying as you normally would. We are excited about the future of this airline and the things that will now be possible.
