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.

I can advise that the transfer to the new host is now complete and that all utilities/trackers should be updated using the MaldAir Group Service Pack Updater Version 7.
Make sure you use V7 of the Service Pack Updater as V6 will give a database error.
All concepts are fully operational.

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.

Our affiliate airline, ASI STAR Virtual is now live!
Posted by Tim Walters on 07/08/2016
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.

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!

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!

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.

Our new incident reporting system is now online.

MALCOM is a TeamSpeak Plugin that allows you to use your COM1/COM2 FSX radio to move channels within TeamSpeak. It is installed automatically by the MaldAir Group Service Pack Updater but it is NOT enabled by default.

Version 2 of the EurOzone Tracker is now available and now includes the option to fly Charter flights.
Hope you enjoy the new verison!

The FragileAir Tracker has now been published and is available by using the MaldAir Group Service Pack Updater.
Note that the SPUpdater is now at V4.00 and will need to be downloaded, installed and ran again before you can choose the FragileAir concept.
We also have four aircraft available with plans to add more as time allows.
If you have any questions, please email email@example.com

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 getting those children up to Lapland to see Santa. We managed 5 flights and MaldAir helped us out a lot which made a lot of children very happy.
EurOzone has had 286 pilot registrations, ninety one thousand hits to the website and one thousand five hundred flight hours. Not as good as our sister airline MaldAir, but we are still very pleased that the concept is popular. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for making the MaldAir Group of Companies 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 (of which EurOzone is a part of) 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 our sister airline MaldAir.com a Happy Birthday and wishing you all a Happy New Year.
MaldAir.com Group Director

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!

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!
