Initial Flying Hours

In accordance with our VA Policy Chapter 2.3,

VOAA Training Team credits the applicants with 70% of the VATSIM / IVAO flying hours (whichever is the higher) ONLY if the pilot has already accumulated over 100 hrs on VATSIM / IVAO.

The maximum initial flying hour is 550 hr.

Pilots are NOT required to complete the tests of the equivalent rank.

Hour transfer from other virtual airlines will NOT be entertained. Please check your VATSIM hours and IVAO hours at VATSIM statistics center and IVAO Personal Page respectively. Make sure you fill in correct information when registering with VOHK!

Example 1:
You have 120 flying hours on VATSIM and 45 flying hours on IVAO.
Initial flying hour in VOHK will be 120 * 70% = 84 hours.

Example 2:
You have 90 flying hours on VATSIM.
Initial flying hour in VOHK will be 0 hours as minimum 100 hours is required.

Example 3:
You have 25 flying hours on VATSIM and 1050 flying hours on IVAO.
Initial flying hour in VOHK will be 550 hours because 1050 * 70% = 735 hours which is greater than maximum limit.
