Recommended Posts

As part of Fly UK’s recent on going re-structure, we are now pleased to announce, that we currently have various vacancies that have become available on the staff team here at Fly UK Virtual Airways.

 

However, it is essential that you understand that although flight simming is a hobby, when you become a staff member, you would need to spend a greater amount of time working to run Fly UK Virtual Airways, providing a free service that is second-to-none. As a staff member you will be expected to show commitment, dedication and enthusiasm in order to keep Fly UK a professional virtual airline.

 

But working with us behind the scenes is not boring, the staff team is full of funny characters and is full of diverse personalities, so each "meeting" is bound to be full of laughter...although we do always get something productive out of the meetings and working in coordination with each other.
