VKENYA (MSAFIRI TRACKER) is a Virtual custom made tracking system,

smartCARS is available to all pilots which can be downloaded from the website or through this link www.vkenya.or.ke/tracker. In order for smartCARS to function correctly, you will need to purchase or use the free version of Peter Dowson's "FSUIPC". All pilots are required to use this program to track flight information which will be sent to the Vkenya Virtual Server for record keeping. We are not able to accept flights which have been tracked using other recording systems.FSUIPC5 5.151 for Prepar3D Version 4  or XPUIPC REPOSITORY: XPUIPC 2.0.5.9

 

File:Airplane silhouette.svgRANK STRUCTURE

Ranks are based on total airline hours. Everyone begins as a Cadet. As your total hours increase your rank level increases.
We do not believe hours in the cockpit is a fair evaluation of a pilot's ability since most experience is gained during the departure and arrival phases of flight.
