Every pilot who flies an IATA/ICAO callsign will be entered into a master list (Callsign, Name, VATSIM ID) that will be used to determine the winner.

In other words, pilots are not allowed to use call signs of their virtual airlines such as this imaginary example VAC1231 call sign for Virtual Air Canada because it requires real world IATA/ICAO call sign.  Am I correct or not??

Hello! Originally how we had set it up, you would be correct. However, I have since updated the event Rules and Regulations to allow this. Please have a read through them again. Thanks!
