In real life, you could never take a command of transport category (multi engine, multi crew) aircraft on a commercial flight, without having at least 1500 hrs.
Your Airways has relatively strict policy when it comes to membership requirements. We consider our pilots to be ambassadors of the company, representing us all over the virtual world.
As in real world, you have to have specific number of flight hours in network or real world to join. We requite captains only, as flight simulation, by nature, is usually a single pilot job. Minimum to join is 150 hrs, moving up in ranks will offer additional aircraft types (long-haul), ETOPS ranks etc. Progressing will be relatively easy, as you count more hours, you will gain experience. Some of our members have real world PPL, CPL, ATPL or thousands of hrs in flight simulator - they can easily help.
