By joining vAAirlines, you understand that our organization is intended for flight simulation and hobbyist purposes ONLY, and at no time should be used for real world navigation or reference besides basic airman knowledge. Any suspicious behavior will be considered a real and immediate threat to the safety of our country and will be reported directly to the proper authorities in the United States Federal Government.

Privacy Statement - COPPA
vAAirlines operates in accordance with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act. The act prohibits website operators from requiring children under the age of 13 to disclose personally identifiable information without parental consent. As was stated above, vAAirlines does collect personally identifiable information through our membership application process, and therefore we are unable to allow children under the age of 13 to become a member of our organization. While some organizations do allow members under 13 to join with parental and legal consent, vAAirlines has elected to set our minimum age requirement higher, and will never accept members under the age of 13. We do hope that those who are underage, and wish to join, come back and join us when they are eligable and meet all of the minimum requirements stated on the applicable position's description page.
