Finances Update

Posted by Tim Walters on 28/07/2017

Dear Members.

Looking through the news items I've come to realise that things may be a little confusing for people who are trying to follow our real world expenses.

The current situation is that FSX FREEFLIGHT 1 is hosted on a professional provider in the Netherlands.  This is due to expire very soon, but intend extending it for one more month as there is some 'cash in the pot' with the provider and it seems senseless to cancel this account during the 'Summer Rush'.

FSX FREEFLIGHT 2 server, FSX ATC server and the FSW FREEFLIGHT server are all hosted at our headquarters on multiple IP's.

When the professional host contract expires on August 30th, FSX FREEFLIGHT 1 will move to our headquarters and FSX FREEFLIGHT 2 will cease.

Thank you for your attention.

FREEFLIGHT RETIREMENT

Posted by Tim Walters on 26/05/2017

Dear Pilots

Following up to the news item below, please take note:

Due to compatibilitiy issues between FSX and FSW running on one WAN IP address, both the ATC and FREEFLIGHT sessions are now merged into one COMMUNITY FSX session which is hosted on the professional server (which was FREEFLIGHT).

This means that we have to keep the professional server and the ongoing costs for this have been added back into the community finances.

We really need your donations to remain viable.

Tim Walters
MaldAir Group President

FREE FLIGHT

Posted by Tim Walters on 21/05/2017

This is a quick notice to advise that the FSX FREEFLIGHT SERVER will not be renewed when it is due and will go offline on or around the 14th July 2017.

The community finances have been adjusted.

FSW Update 3

Posted by Tim Walters on 20/05/2017

UPDATE 3

http://fsw.maldair.com

Check out the URL above which shows
the MaldAir Group Flight Sim World development
road map along with progress to date.

I am pleased to announce that I have obtained hardware which is low cost to run and supports FSW.  I am finalising the installation and it should be available full time in the next day or so.

Please visit the page above for a more details.

MaldAir Group President

FSW Update 2

Posted by Tim Walters on 19/05/2017

UPDATE 2

Initial tests are complete and thankfully, DTG have included a 32bit SimConnect.

I have tested the revised Tracker and it appears to be working sufficiently well for it to be published in the next week.

However, this isn't the end of the story as I will also have to redesign the SPUpdater to allow for and detect FSW installations.  This will take some time...

I haven't tried any repaints yet, but they appear to be standard (allbeit rather large) .DDS texture files.

We currently have a Multiplayer server available on FSW though it's a bit intermittent!

I will post updates when I know what's happening.

Tim Walters
MaldAir Group President

Published!

Posted by Tim Walters on 18/05/2017

NOW AVAILABLE FOR
PURCHASE AND DOWNLOAD!

DTG FLIGHT SCHOOL OWNERS WILL GET IT FOR FREE!

We are looking at supporting this new sim in the next few days.  It's too early to say if we will be successful.
PLEASE do not buy on the assumption that we will be successful in implementing FSW into the MaldAir Group.

FSW Update

Posted by Tim Walters on 13/05/2017

UPDATE 1

I have been working on converting the Trackers to use SimConnect for FSW instead of FSUIPC and things have been going quite well.  I still cannot say at this stage whether we will be able to support FSW but I am trying hard.  The final work on implementation will only occur when the new simulator is actually released and I can actually test it out against their SimConnect engine.

I have published updates to the FSX Trackers to emphasise what simulator the Tracker it is actually for.  If things go without any hitch, I will amend the Service Pack Updater to include FSW when possible.

I will post updates as and when I know what's happening.

Flight Sim World

Posted by Tim Walters on 06/05/2017

DoveTail Games has announced that their new flight simulator: Flight Sim World will be available as 'Early Access' through Steam on the 18th May 2017.

Whilst this is good news, it is an early access game and they have already told us in their media that the multiplayer environment has bugs.

I would like to implement FSW into the community, but as FSUIPC is not supported at the moment, I am not able to say whether this will happen.

It will take a significant amount of work to implement the MaldAir Group into the new simulator and it does, at this stage, significantly rely upon FSUIPC support.

All I can say is that I am considering FSW implementation but it's very early days and cannot commit any further.

BitCoin Mining

Posted by Tim Walters on 02/05/2017

 

BitCoin Mining

If you are AFK, or you are on a very long flight, why not use your computer to mine BitCoins for the community?

REAL money can be earned by simply letting your computer do complex calculations in the background while you are AFK or flying.

The money earned is collated and added to the community funds once per month, or more frequently depending on the amount earned.

If your computer is on most of the day, then this is a great option to help us out.

You will also get a TeamSpeak icon while you are mining.

Click HERE for more information!

FREE FLIGHT Server

Posted by Tim Walters on 01/05/2017

The FREEFLIGHT server has been somewhat successful in keeping the rogue aircraft away from ATC controlled airports.  I have to say that the six monthly renewal for this server is due in a few months time and this has been added up as a future expense to the community finances.  If we don't get enough donations prior to its renewal, we will not be keeping it.  This could will cause a significant increase in the need for Airport Security, particularly during the school Summer holidays, July through to September, as well as effecting the stability of the ATC server.

Thank you for your attention.

FREE FLIGHT

Posted by Tim Walters on 16/01/2017

Hello Pilots!

We have added a Free Flight Server to the MaldAir Group to reduce the load on the ATC server bandwidth and to reduce the number of rogue aircraft at controlled airports.

This will improve both ATC and Pilot experience when under air traffic control.

This is costing around £13.00 GBP per month to facilitate, so donations are most welcome.  You can donate HERE.

Thank you for your attention.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY
MALDAIR

The MaldAir Group are officially 2 years old today and we would like to thank everyone for being a valued part of the community.

Without you, our members, MaldAir would not be such a great place to be and we cannot thank you enough for making us the success we are.

Some Stats:

4280 registrations in 2 years.  That's over 5 new registrations per day or 178 registrations per month!

15785 flights since MaldAir started their operations.  That's 151 flights per week or an average of 21 flights per day.  Over the last week, we have averaged 40 flights per day.

16,759,633 nautical miles flown.  That's over 16 million nautical miles which is over half way to the planet Mercury!

Simply amazing pilots!

The Birthday Party will start on TeamSpeak right after the Landing Competition at 20:00UTC where the President will be available to take questions.

Hope to see you there!

ATC Service Notification

Posted by Tim Walters on 27/11/2016

IMPORTANT NOTICE

ATCs who provide service are expected to provide a minimum of one hour service.

ATCs that decide to leave before they have completed the whole hour will be notified and that time will be removed from their service record automatically.

Pilots need time to set up their systems, trackers, study maps, procedures etc. and they need to know you will be available to provide service.

By ensuring you will provide a minimum of one hours service, they are more likely to make use of that service.

DOMAINS

Posted by Tim Walters on 11/10/2016

You may have noticed that some of the websites are 'down' insofar they have been moved.

This is to save costs long term on domain renewals.

EurOzone, KangAir, and FragileAir will not be renewed and they have been moved over to the maldair.com domain.  They WILL continue to operate.

MAlitary.org will be moved over to the MaldAir.com domain tomorrow.

EUSART.org will remain unchanged as this is the domain used to get the 512 user not-for-profit TeamSpeak licence.  A TeamSpeak licence costs a great deal more than a domain renewal!

PLEASE update your bookmarks as necessary.

Network Downgrade

Posted by Tim Walters on 27/08/2016

All members, please be aware that as donations have been insufficient to cover the costs we will be downgrading the network infrastructure.

What will this mean to our members?

We will lose the 'Free Flight' server at some point.  In the middle of September 2016, the TeamSpeak server will be offline for around 12 hours (much less for most of you) whilst the order progresses through, IP addresses change and DNS records update worldwide.  I will try to minimise downtime as much as possible.  The exact date is unknown.

Tracked flights will be unaffected.

Losing the Free Flight server will be an issue insofar as there may be more rogue aircraft during ATC sessions.  To counteract this potential problem, we have implemented an 'Airport Security' concept which will allow a select few to remove those aircraft from the session who choose to disregard ATC instruction.

Do note that this change is not reversible.

I thank everyone for taking the time to populate our services, we will continue on as best we can.

Dear Pilots

We can advise that the MaldAir Group will be including a new airline as an affiliate in the next week or so.  The name is yet to be decided but we can tell you that it will be based in and around the Asian continent.

Further details are a little sketchy at the moment and we will update you on progress.

Adverts!

Posted by Tim Walters on 04/08/2016

The MaldAir Group will now show adverts to users WHO HAVE NOT donated to the community both on the websites and Trackers.

This is for three reasons:

1. Those who have donated are rewarded with an ad-free experience.

2. Those who have not donated will still be assisting the MaldAir Group finances.

3. It will hopefully encourage those who have not donated to do so.

Thank you to everyone who has donated - we all appreciate it!

KangAir Purchase

Posted by Tim Walters on 28/07/2016

We can advise that the KangAir transfer of ownership to the MaldAir Group is now complete.  The KangAir Tracker V2 is NOW available using the MaldAir Group Service Pack Updater (which itself has been upgraded to V6.00) available from the downloads page.

Looking forward to your continued service pilots on KangAir!

Group Promo Video

Posted by Tim Walters on 23/07/2016

As we have run out of ideas that would make any promotional video outdated, we have finally published a promotional video for the MaldAir Group Concept. We were also waiting to find the right music to come our way which, thankfully, it did.

With all the concepts available within the Group the video could easily have been an hour long - but we have cut it down to a few minutes so as not to send anyone to sleep who has a short attention span.

The 'Schedules' menu and 'Shop' menu have been made submenus of the 'Pilots' menu.

Do note that development work of the MaldAir and EurOzone Trackers V2.00 is ongoing.  This will allow for Charter flights upon release.  This means you can make a tracked flight to any airport that exists in FSX by default or choose from the existing schedules.

Network Upgrade Complete

Posted by Tim Walters on 24/03/2016

The network upgrade is now complete.  We plan to have 3x servers online 24/7 to reduce the load (and rogue aircraft) on the ATC server.  Apologies for the temporary inconvenience but it was necessary to enhance the experience for the serious members who like to use our live ATC.

Tim Walters
MaldAir Group President

Network Upgrade

Posted by Tim Walters on 18/03/2016

Yesterday (18th March 2016) we had a service outage whilst the network infrastructure was being updated.  We are still working on this but we shall not be purposefully taking down the connection over the weekend.  It's taking a little longer than expected and requires some additional hardware which I am waiting on delivery.

The plan, once the networking is working correctly, is to have the 'Free Flight' server available for those not interested in ATC services as we have had before - thus reducing the load on the main server.  The Free Flight server was a little too expensive to keep online long term using the method originally employed.  If all goes to plan, I am hoping to have a MAlitary.org server available as well as I have an available public address pool of 6 IPs.

It's a work in progress - but connectivity will be stable for this weekend.

Thanks for your attention.

Happy Birthday!

Posted by Tim MaldAir President on 25/12/2015

Christmas and New Year Statement

Firstly, let me wish you all the best Christmas and Happy New Year.  To all you who got a new computer for Christmas, I am jealous!

Secondly, I would like to thank those pilots who flew to EFRO this month, thereby assisting our sister airline EurOzone get those children up to Lapland to see Santa.  We managed 20 additional flights which helped them out greatly.

MaldAir is now officially one year old as of yesterday and we have had a very neat 2222 pilot registrations, six hundred and eighty five thousand hits to the website and eighteen thousand hours of flight time.  For a relatively new Airline, this is simply astonishing and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for making the MaldAir Server THE most popular session on FSX:Steam Edition.

I would like to extend a very heartfelt thank you to Zak Adams for donating the most to the community and thank all our other donators for keeping us going.  There have been some changes to the networking infrastructure at the Directors offices and costs will be significantly less since November 2015 but we do still need your donations to cover the costs of maintaining the website.  If you've got any cash left over from Santa's visit - then do remember our needs and click on that button on the right!

Some important news is that the MaldAir group of companies will be extending in the next few months as we are entering the Cargo/Consignment/Parcel market.  This is still in development but the plan is to have parcels rather than schedules.  Anyone can have a parcel delivered to and from any of our (and EurOzones) regular airports and the parcels will be tracked and emails sent when a parcel reaches the destination, gets closer to its destination or has any other significant event (such as damage due to a hard landing or interception by Customs Officials).  You can create parcels for yourself to deliver or for anyone else to deliver.  If you successfully deliver the parcel, you will be paid.  If you damage the parcel (with a hard landing) then YOU will have to pay the sender compensation.  Do note that Customs Officials will confiscate certain consignments if anything illegal is found during searches.

The name of the new airline is FRAGILEAIR.  With a name like that, you will appreciate that we take our job responsibly and any landing harder than -400fpm or excessive bank angles etc. WILL damage the cargo.  This airline is for pilots who are very good at landing!

FRAGILEAIR is a work in progress and we hope to 'deliver' (safely) the final concept around mid February 2016.  We will, of course, publish the release of FRAGILEAIR on the MaldAir group websites.

Wishing MaldAir.com a Happy Birthday and wishing you all a Happy New Year.

Tim Walters
MaldAir.com Group Director

Maintenence

Posted by Tim MaldAir President on 06/12/2015

I M P O R T A N T

To cut down on the number of 'registered' pilots, we have and will continue to clear down the database by removing any pilots who have not logged into the website or any of our utilities for over six months.  This will remove ALL data associated with that account.

To remain listed, just log into the website pilot!

CHRISTMAS SPECIAL

Posted by Tim MaldAir President on 18/11/2015

To cope with the substantial demand for trips to Lapland over the coming month, we have added Rovaniemi Airport (EFRO) to the schedules of both MaldAir and EurOzone.

You will also note that EurOzone have added a special Christmas repaint (photo) to their fleet for December and an added feature at Rovaniemi Airport.

Pilots from either airline can use this aircraft, but to obtain it, you will have to select the EurOzone concept inside our Service Pack Updater.

Wishing you all a MERRY CHRISTMAS and thank you for your continued and valued service for our airlines!

MaldAir.com Accident

Posted by Tim MaldAir President on 03/08/2015

BREAKING NEWS

 

Yesterday, one of our aircraft slid off the end of the runway at Manchester (EGCC) due to significant rainfall as is often common at Manchester.
All passengers were evacuated safely and no passengers were injured.

 

The pilot's pride has been injured, but we have forgiven him due to the treacherous conditions.
We actually blame the Airport Facilities Director for keeping the airport open during this prolonged torrential storm.


Legal wranglings have only just begun and we expect them to go on for some time.

 

The aircraft was damaged beyond repair.

 

 

If you are interested in joining an airline that values its pilots and offers
over 112,000 schedules globally, then do take the time to join.

 

Safe flying!

Well done guys - we have reached another milestone!

New Landing Sites and Aircraft

Posted by Tim Walters on 24/03/2015

The Maldivian Government, who subsidise the airline heavily, have been concerned with the dwindling number of flights provided in the Maldives. This concern has caused us to purchase a fleet of 38 new Dash Twin Otter Float planes to fly passengers to the islands which consist of 30 landing sites (all begin with VRxx in the schedules), 21 of them being the islands which are the administrative capitals of the 21 Administrative Areas, plus 9 resort islands. We need you, as a pilot, to get passengers where they need to be.

The landing sites function in exactly the same way as regular airports. You can set one as a departure and another as a destination, and use the Flight Planner to create a VFR route between them, which will display on the GPS. This is often vital, as the islands are tiny and finding them in the emptiness of the Indian Ocean can be tricky.

Once again, we ask pilots to fly these routes or the Government will withdraw their funding and this could result in serious hardship for MaldAir.

This is an experimental item and it has not been fully tested.  If it implodes while in use, we blame the mechanics...  The item can be found in the Shop link above for registered users.  Please remember to buy a battery!

MaldAir Fraud Investigation

Posted by Tim Walters on 06/02/2015

 

MaldAir has been under suspicion for accepting fake Pilot Reports (PIREPs) and the external auditors have discovered some pilots have indeed been passing, what appear to be, fakes.

This is a VERY serious matter and the pilots involved have been dealt with swiftly and effectively.

As the President of the airline I am partly responsible for overlooking these reports as I have been far too busy with development work to keep a close eye on the reports coming in.

This will no longer be the case.  Development work is pretty much complete and I will be looking at these reports much more closely than before.

Take note: Pilots found to be submitting false reports will have those reports rejected, a fine imposed and possible dismissal from MaldAir.

I apologise to the pilots who have been genuine in their submissions.  Such actions by the minority will not be accepted.  We ask everyone to be vigilant.

Yours Sincerely

Welcome to MaldAir.com Virtual

Posted by Tim Walters on 24/12/2014

Welcome Pilots to the MaldAir.com Virtual Airline - with its main hub in the Republic of the Maldives in the middle of the Indian Ocean/Arabian Sea with internal routes between the islands and now with thousands of global link flights bringing lucky people to this stunningly beautiful country.

Our main hub is at ICAO: VRMM - Male on Hulule Island, the capital of the Republic of the Maldives. We shall be adding more hubs shortly, once the company shareholders have had their meetings and made their decisions.

Please take the time to read the Company Rules and the FAQ's to get started. All the software required to start flying for MaldAir.com is available in the download section after you have registered.

We have a TeamSpeak 3 server which replaces the stock communications on FSX and allows for social chat away from the live ATC frequencies. Please visit http://www.teamspeak.com/?page=downloads to download the client and then connect to our TeamSpeak 3 server using the address: comms.maldair.com

The stock FSX communications system is quite useless so if you want to use ATC we strongly recommend using TeamSpeak as serious ATCs will be using this system as the quality is far superior and stable.

All the best and three greens always!
