Here you go…..

Air-Child VA Flight Summary 1st Quarter of 2014
---------------------------------------------------------
Total Flights: 4,981
Total miles flown: 4,254,405 nm
Total hours flown: 11,337 hrs
------------------------------------
Total donations: 600.24 €

Dear pilots,
actually we have 21 sponsors who are supporting UNICEF via Air-Child. To raise the amount of the donation we have to find more sponsors! It is not just a question of more flights cause each sponsor has of course a maximum limit of his own donation. So we ask you kindly to help us to find more sponsors who are willing to support UNICEF through our Virtual Airline Air-Child. If you know any private person or company who is willing to participate please let us know. Please send a PM to Norbert Woeller. If Norbert does not answer immediately please be patient. You also may sent a PM to me or to Peter Schindler.

Kind Regards
Tom

Hi, thanks for the update Tom. That's not bad, 600 euros. You would have to knock on a lot of doors to raise 600 euros for a charity.

Maybe a stupid idea, but did anyone ever try MS, Bill Gates and/or his foundation? It's a pity MS discontinued FSX; otherwise they would surely be interested.

I understand we probably have to skip the maker of P3D. On the one hand Lockheed makes the fine C-130/L-100. Those planes are often used to bring food to disaster areas and to provide medical assistance and airlift. On the other hand Lockheed produces and sells weapons....

What about a site like flightsim.com? Would they be rich enough to donate or are they barely making up for their own hosting bills? I mean, everybody here knows that site. A bit off topic but I even saw an interview with Ricardo on fs.com! In case you missed it. :)

Yes, there are several possibillities, but we need pilots who do the contacts.
Cheers Tom

Hi Tom,

I appreciate your swift reply - thank you very much!

And furthermore, 600 € within 3 months is quite good :)

Best regards

All aircraft manufacturers sell weapons, lest we forget boeing makes the b52, Airbus division EADS makes the Eurofighter etc... probably MS and Lockheed, were they to donate to Unicef, have more than enough clout to do it in their own way. hit up the smaller fs developers and sites, the worst thing that can happen is they say no. personal donations are a part of it as well. may be the route I take, as soon as I check a few things out...

Not all of them of course, there are many small manufacturers that target only private pilots. But I agree, all big ones do. I was only mentioning Lockheed because they(or their subdivision) makes P3D. Boeing makes simulators but not software we could ever buy ourselves.

I see MS in a different light. Yes, they are also supplying to weapons manufacturers but so does Linux(the Linux guided gun-sight etc.) And many flightsim developers are involved in simulated weapons like Captain Sim is.

But, OK. Some small companies. UK2000, Flightaware(or are they big?), Carenado.

But it might be difficult, maybe there's some kind of screening by UNICEF needed before you could safely ask a company for donation.

I want to explain this. Maybe some of you are knowing that I have a film production company. We are producing films for the german children TV broadcast channel. Since the end of oktober 2013 we are producing a new series wich is very time expensive. And the films for this series are made in countries all over the world, mostly in the wildernes like the desert or bush in Namibia or Kangaroo Island in Australia for example. There you have only at a few points an internet connection but mostly none internet connection. So yes, if you send me a mail or a PM, please be patient ;) Thank you.

Best regards
Norbert
