New Acars info

Dear fellow Buffalo Pilots,

I wanted to take a moment and Thank You for being a member.
Buffalo Airways Virtual has been around for 7 years now.
Some of you may have just joined and others have been here since the beginning.
During our 7 years we have survived by the gracious donations from our members.
Our Server, Acars, and TeamSpeak are all supported by donations. If you have made a
donation in the past we want to Thank You once again.
As mentioned our Acars system is 7 years old and we no longer have Tech support from
the folks that created it for us. If you have flown lately you have noticed a script error that
comes up before or after your flight. This is due to a change in the google map that goes along
with mapping your flight. Google has made changes and we cannot adapt to it on our end anymore.
We have a great VA here and I would like to make it a fun and non problematic place to fly.
The staff and I would like to make an improvement to our Acars system.
We have done some research and we looking to upgrade to the smartCARS system.
Some of you may be familiar with this flight tracking system. It looks like it would be a good fit
for us here at Buffalo.
We would like to implement this into our VA and ask you to be a part of this. Since we are a not for profit
VA and purely operate on donations we would like to offer an opportunity for our pilots to help improve the flying
experience here by making a small donation towards the project.
We will begin a fundraiser for this starting October 1, 2017 and run for 2 weeks and close at the end of the day on October 14, 2017.
Donations will be accepted through Pay-Pal and there a two places on our site to click on. One is on your Profile Page and the other
is on the Forum page. Donations can be of any amount. Every little bit helps. Any donation during this time frame will go directly to the
purchase of the program. Please also note that we also ask for your continuing support all year round by your donations.
The Buffalo Staff and I want to Thank You for taking time out to read this and for your ongoing support.
If you have any questions about this or anything else please feel free to contact myself or another staff member.
Thanks again.

Sincerely the Buffalo Airways Virtual Staff
