The Future of Air-Child

#1

Post by Christopher Bennett » Wed Feb 01, 2017 20:39

Hello again,

We have now completed the Transfer of Air-Child from Peter and Norbert to the New Team currently comprised of Christian Neumann and myself (a few others have signaled an interest in joining the team and will be named when we have reached an agreement as to where they will be of best use).

In the next few days, I will be enquiring with the past and present staff members if they are still interested in helping out.

We will then figure out who will remain on board as a staff member and which positions need to be filled, at that time we will be opening applications.

I will be looking into the source code of the website to get an overview and will be implementing only bugfixes from now on to keep the system operational pending the completion of the new site.

I will over the next days also start working on the requests we have received so far and will post in the forum upon their completion.

stay tuned for more

Sounds great! Thanky you for the efforts to keep this wonderful VA alife. Very smooth, no hassels and that combined withe the charity systems is just what makes my (mostly vastsim) flying a rounded expeirience.

All the best to the new board of directors and thanks to the founders for supporting this ahange in adninistrative staff.

I will certainly stay on board and if applications that meet my abilities (kowledge/skills as well as availible time) should show up in this process i will seriously considre aplyiing.

Thank you once again and warm greetings,

Gero

Thank you and congrats guys for keeping this place going.. Looking forward to the new stuff!! Not taking anything away from the current one but, out of curiosity, has there been any discussion on a new livery?

Kind regards,

Jermaine

Hello Jermaine, hello to all!

Yes, the livery as kind of the corporate identity were already one topic. We discussed about, and we took it a little bit down on our todo-list. As Jesco mentioned in some other posts, and we agree with that comletely, the system behind the VA has to be modernized, and some other points have to be done first. But the liv and how to get it into the AI-liveries is on the agenda.

One more things to talk about:

Please post your requests to the various things into the appropriate chapters of the forum so that we have a kind of sorting.

Thanks in advance

First of all, thank you for keeping Air-Child alive.

I hope the future will be bright for us and that X-Plane will work with the site and that the changes in the site will not go beyond what is necessary. I for one consider the design to be classical, elegant and easy to navigate.

yep updated to 3.2
only little issue is it now has to be viewed without the website around it and the latest posts are not shown on the homepage ... fixes for both (hopefully) are being worked on.
