We call this type of real meeting "conference" and we made one in Odessa.
Our first IVAO Real Meeting - "Odessa Virtual Aviation Conference" was happened 18-19th of May 2013.
People from different divisions but united into the one airline met on "Odessa Virtual Aviation Conference" real meeting.
We lived there together for two days. We made the interview to local media, discussed new simulators projects, made demonstration flights for press and shared features of the network.. We made ATC demonstration for the press and explain to them how IVAO can help for the students of aviation universities and aviation enthusiasts in private schools.
Together we enjoyed the IVAO successes, walked around the beautiful streets of Odessa, and proud having the IVAO logo on our chests.
We proud to be a part of IVAO
