It has come to our attention that certain individuals have been promoting Copyright theft on the TeamSpeak server.

I should not have to remind people that this is illegal activity, however it appears necessary.

I have spent the last twenty eight months ensuring that we are not infringing intellectual property rights, but it only takes one individual to put the entire community in jeopardy.

Users who actively engage in this illegal activity will be removed from the community.  I have no choice, as failing to do so would result in a criminal charge against me for aiding and abetting. (Magistrates' Courts Act 1980, section 44)

ATC Tests now LIVE!

Posted by Tim Walters on 26/01/2017

After some issues with the cache, I can advise that the ATC Tests are now LIVE.

Anyone who has failed any of the ATC tests will have that record reset. This means you can take any failed test again without having to wait one week.

From now on (17:20 UTC - Thursday 26th Jan 2017), if you fail any of the tests you will have to wait one week before being able to take it again.

Be warned and CONCENTRATE!

Aviation Quiz Retirement

Posted by Tim Walters on 23/01/2017

New ATC Tests will come into force by the end of the week, provisionally, 27th Jan 2017.

We are retiing the Aviation Quiz and making use of some of those questions on the new ATC Tests.

This is still a work in progress, but you will find additional details shortly when they are known.

Thank you all for your attention and continued service to the community.

Tim Walters Group President.


Posted by Tim Walters on 16/01/2017

Hello Pilots!

We have added a Free Flight Server to the MaldAir Group to reduce the load on the ATC server bandwidth and to reduce the number of rogue aircraft at controlled airports.

This will improve both ATC and Pilot experience when under air traffic control.

This is costing around £13.00 GBP per month to facilitate, so donations are most welcome.  You can donate HERE.

Thank you for your attention.

The MaldAir Group are officially 2 years old today and we would like to thank everyone for being a valued part of the community.

Without you, our members, MaldAir would not be such a great place to be and we cannot thank you enough for making us the success we are.

Some Stats:

4280 registrations in 2 years.  That's over 5 new registrations per day or 178 registrations per month!

15785 flights since MaldAir started their operations.  That's 151 flights per week or an average of 21 flights per day.  Over the last week, we have averaged 40 flights per day.

16,759,633 nautical miles flown.  That's over 16 million nautical miles which is over half way to the planet Mercury!

Simply amazing pilots!

The Birthday Party will start on TeamSpeak right after the Landing Competition at 20:00UTC where the President will be available to take questions.

Hope to see you there!

ATC Service Notification

Posted by Tim Walters on 27/11/2016


ATCs who provide service are expected to provide a minimum of one hour service.

ATCs that decide to leave before they have completed the whole hour will be notified and that time will be removed from their service record automatically.

Pilots need time to set up their systems, trackers, study maps, procedures etc. and they need to know you will be available to provide service.

By ensuring you will provide a minimum of one hours service, they are more likely to make use of that service.

You may have noticed that some of the websites are 'down' insofar they have been moved.

This is to save costs long term on domain renewals.

EurOzone, KangAir, and FragileAir will not be renewed and they have been moved over to the domain.  They WILL continue to operate. will be moved over to the domain tomorrow. will remain unchanged as this is the domain used to get the 512 user not-for-profit TeamSpeak licence.  A TeamSpeak licence costs a great deal more than a domain renewal!

Network Downgrade

Posted by Tim Walters on 27/08/2016

All members, please be aware that as donations have been insufficient to cover the costs we will be downgrading the network infrastructure.

What will this mean to our members?

We will lose the 'Free Flight' server at some point.  In the middle of September 2016, the TeamSpeak server will be offline for around 12 hours (much less for most of you) whilst the order progresses through, IP addresses change and DNS records update worldwide.  I will try to minimise downtime as much as possible.  The exact date is unknown.

Tracked flights will be unaffected.

Losing the Free Flight server will be an issue insofar as there may be more rogue aircraft during ATC sessions.  To counteract this potential problem, we have implemented an 'Airport Security' concept which will allow a select few to remove those aircraft from the session who choose to disregard ATC instruction.

Do note that this change is not reversible.

I thank everyone for taking the time to populate our services, we will continue on as best we can.

New Affiliate Airline

Posted by Tim Walters on 07/08/2016

Dear Pilots

We can advise that the MaldAir Group will be including a new airline as an affiliate in the next week or so.  The name is yet to be decided but we can tell you that it will be based in and around the Asian continent.

Further details are a little sketchy at the moment and we will update you on progress.

Tim Walters Group President


Posted by Tim Walters on 04/08/2016

The MaldAir Group will now show adverts to users WHO HAVE NOT donated to the community both on the websites and Trackers.

This is for three reasons:

1. Those who have donated are rewarded with an ad-free experience.

2. Those who have not donated will still be assisting the MaldAir Group finances.

3. It will hopefully encourage those who have not donated to do so.

Thank you to everyone who has donated - we all appreciate it!

KangAir Purchase

Posted by Tim Walters on 28/07/2016

We can advise that the KangAir transfer of ownership to the MaldAir Group is now complete.  The KangAir Tracker V2 is NOW available using the MaldAir Group Service Pack Updater (which itself has been upgraded to V6.00) available from the downloads page.

Looking forward to your continued service pilots on KangAir!

Group Promo Video

Posted by Tim Walters on 23/07/2016

As we have run out of ideas that would make any promotional video outdated, we have finally published a promotional video for the MaldAir Group Concept. We were also waiting to find the right music to come our way which, thankfully, it did.

With all the concepts available within the Group the video could easily have been an hour long - but we have cut it down to a few minutes so as not to send anyone to sleep who has a short attention span.

Posted by Tim Walters on 04/06/2016

MAGHOPS is now released and you will have noticed adjustments to the main menu above.  Please take the time to look around and maybe suggest some hop routes.

The 'Schedules' menu and 'Shop' menu have been made submenus of the 'Pilots' menu.

Do note that development work of the MaldAir and EurOzone Trackers V2.00 is ongoing.  This will allow for Charter flights upon release.  This means you can make a tracked flight to any airport that exists in FSX by default or choose from the existing schedules.

Safe Flying!

Network Upgrade Complete

Posted by Tim Walters on 24/03/2016

The network upgrade is now complete.  We plan to have 3x servers online 24/7 to reduce the load (and rogue aircraft) on the ATC server.  Apologies for the temporary inconvenience but it was necessary to enhance the experience for the serious members who like to use our live ATC.

Tim Walters
MaldAir Group President

Network Upgrade

Posted by Tim Walters on 18/03/2016

Yesterday (18th March 2016) we had a service outage whilst the network infrastructure was being updated.  We are still working on this but we shall not be purposefully taking down the connection over the weekend.  It's taking a little longer than expected and requires some additional hardware which I am waiting on delivery.

The plan, once the networking is working correctly, is to have the 'Free Flight' server available for those not interested in ATC services as we have had before - thus reducing the load on the main server.  The Free Flight server was a little too expensive to keep online long term using the method originally employed.  If all goes to plan, I am hoping to have a server available as well as I have an available public address pool of 6 IPs.

It's a work in progress - but connectivity will be stable for this weekend.

Thanks for your attention.

Tim Walters
MaldAir Group President

A NEW Affiliate Airline!

Posted by Tim Walters on 10/03/2016 are proud to announce the introduction of a new affiliate airline.

This area covers Australia, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, Fiji, Tonga, Samoa, Vanuatu and many more smaller islands.

The team over at KangAir look forward to your service!

Happy Birthday!

Posted by Tim MaldAir President on 25/12/2015

Christmas and New Year Statement

Firstly, let me wish you all the best Christmas and Happy New Year.  To all you who got a new computer for Christmas, I am jealous!

Secondly, I would like to thank those pilots who flew to EFRO this month, thereby assisting our sister airline EurOzone get those children up to Lapland to see Santa.  We managed 20 additional flights which helped them out greatly.

MaldAir is now officially one year old as of yesterday and we have had a very neat 2222 pilot registrations, six hundred and eighty five thousand hits to the website and eighteen thousand hours of flight time.  For a relatively new Airline, this is simply astonishing and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for making the MaldAir Server THE most popular session on FSX:Steam Edition.

I would like to extend a very heartfelt thank you to Zak Adams for donating the most to the community and thank all our other donators for keeping us going.  There have been some changes to the networking infrastructure at the Directors offices and costs will be significantly less since November 2015 but we do still need your donations to cover the costs of maintaining the website.  If you've got any cash left over from Santa's visit - then do remember our needs and click on that button on the right!

Some important news is that the MaldAir group of companies will be extending in the next few months as we are entering the Cargo/Consignment/Parcel market.  This is still in development but the plan is to have parcels rather than schedules.  Anyone can have a parcel delivered to and from any of our (and EurOzones) regular airports and the parcels will be tracked and emails sent when a parcel reaches the destination, gets closer to its destination or has any other significant event (such as damage due to a hard landing or interception by Customs Officials).  You can create parcels for yourself to deliver or for anyone else to deliver.  If you successfully deliver the parcel, you will be paid.  If you damage the parcel (with a hard landing) then YOU will have to pay the sender compensation.  Do note that Customs Officials will confiscate certain consignments if anything illegal is found during searches.

The name of the new airline is FRAGILEAIR.  With a name like that, you will appreciate that we take our job responsibly and any landing harder than -400fpm or excessive bank angles etc. WILL damage the cargo.  This airline is for pilots who are very good at landing!

FRAGILEAIR is a work in progress and we hope to 'deliver' (safely) the final concept around mid February 2016.  We will, of course, publish the release of FRAGILEAIR on the MaldAir group websites.

Wishing a Happy Birthday and wishing you all a Happy New Year.

Tim Walters Group Director


Posted by Tim MaldAir President on 06/12/2015


To cut down on the number of 'registered' pilots, we have and will continue to clear down the database by removing any pilots who have not logged into the website or any of our utilities for over six months.  This will remove ALL data associated with that account.

To remain listed, just log into the website pilot!


Posted by Tim MaldAir President on 18/11/2015

To cope with the substantial demand for trips to Lapland over the coming month, we have added Rovaniemi Airport (EFRO) to the schedules of both MaldAir and EurOzone.

You will also note that EurOzone have added a special Christmas repaint (photo) to their fleet for December and an added feature at Rovaniemi Airport.

Pilots from either airline can use this aircraft, but to obtain it, you will have to select the EurOzone concept inside our Service Pack Updater.

Wishing you all a MERRY CHRISTMAS and thank you for your continued and valued service for our airlines!

NEW TeamSpeak Skin

Available from the Downloads menu option above. Accident

Posted by Tim MaldAir President on 03/08/2015



Yesterday, one of our aircraft slid off the end of the runway at Manchester (EGCC) due to significant rainfall as is often common at Manchester.
All passengers were evacuated safely and no passengers were injured.


The pilot's pride has been injured, but we have forgiven him due to the treacherous conditions.
We actually blame the Airport Facilities Director for keeping the airport open during this prolonged torrential storm.

Legal wranglings have only just begun and we expect them to go on for some time.


The aircraft was damaged beyond repair.



If you are interested in joining an airline that values its pilots and offers
over 112,000 schedules globally, then do take the time to join.


Safe flying!

New Landing Sites and Aircraft

Posted by Tim Walters on 24/03/2015

The Maldivian Government, who subsidise the airline heavily, have been concerned with the dwindling number of flights provided in the Maldives. This concern has caused us to purchase a fleet of 38 new Dash Twin Otter Float planes to fly passengers to the islands which consist of 30 landing sites (all begin with VRxx in the schedules), 21 of them being the islands which are the administrative capitals of the 21 Administrative Areas, plus 9 resort islands. We need you, as a pilot, to get passengers where they need to be.

The landing sites function in exactly the same way as regular airports. You can set one as a departure and another as a destination, and use the Flight Planner to create a VFR route between them, which will display on the GPS. This is often vital, as the islands are tiny and finding them in the emptiness of the Indian Ocean can be tricky.

Once again, we ask pilots to fly these routes or the Government will withdraw their funding and this could result in serious hardship for MaldAir.

MaldAir Fraud Investigation

Posted by Tim Walters on 06/02/2015


MaldAir has been under suspicion for accepting fake Pilot Reports (PIREPs) and the external auditors have discovered some pilots have indeed been passing, what appear to be, fakes.

This is a VERY serious matter and the pilots involved have been dealt with swiftly and effectively.

As the President of the airline I am partly responsible for overlooking these reports as I have been far too busy with development work to keep a close eye on the reports coming in.

This will no longer be the case.  Development work is pretty much complete and I will be looking at these reports much more closely than before.

Take note: Pilots found to be submitting false reports will have those reports rejected, a fine imposed and possible dismissal from MaldAir.

I apologise to the pilots who have been genuine in their submissions.  Such actions by the minority will not be accepted.  We ask everyone to be vigilant.

Yours Sincerely

Tim Walters
MaldAir President

Welcome to Virtual

Posted by Tim Walters on 24/12/2014

Welcome Pilots to the Virtual Airline - with its main hub in the Republic of the Maldives in the middle of the Indian Ocean/Arabian Sea with internal routes between the islands and now with thousands of global link flights bringing lucky people to this stunningly beautiful country.

Our main hub is at ICAO: VRMM - Male on Hulule Island, the capital of the Republic of the Maldives. We shall be adding more hubs shortly, once the company shareholders have had their meetings and made their decisions.

Please take the time to read the Company Rules and the FAQ's to get started. All the software required to start flying for is available in the download section after you have registered.

We have a TeamSpeak 3 server which replaces the stock communications on FSX and allows for social chat away from the live ATC frequencies. Please visit to download the client and then connect to our TeamSpeak 3 server using the address:

The stock FSX communications system is quite useless so if you want to use ATC we strongly recommend using TeamSpeak as serious ATCs will be using this system as the quality is far superior and stable.

All the best and three greens always!
