Virtual Blue1 opened Summer Tour 2011 last Wednesday. Our tour started from Helsinki and it stops in some cities we don't usually have in our timetables.

First stop was Minsk, the beautiful capital of Belarus. Next destination was released today and it is Warsaw, the capital of Poland.

In March 2011, we operated total of 206 flights and we made a new record. Although we didn't make a new record with flying hours. In March we flew about 321 hours.

Last month was kind of special for our company because we allowed using XAcars on our flights for logging. That means nowadays also X-Plane pilots are warmly welcome to fly with us.

Currently Virtual Blue1's second pilot recruiting of this year is open and we have still few spots available for new pilots.
