Dit jaar 2023 is het jaar waarbij IVAO 25 jaar bestaat. Inmiddels vlieger er al zo’n 240.000 enthousiaste flightsimulator liefhebbers rond op het netwerk van IVAO. 16 december 1998 werd IVAO opgericht.
Hier onder het officiële persbericht:
“IVAO’s celebrating its 25th anniversary this year. Twenty-five years of passion for aviation, community and continued development. More than 240,000 enthusiastic members have joined IVAO along the way since its launch on the 16th December 1998; a year when Nasa announced there was enough water on the moon to support a human colony, in the opposite direction to last year, France won the FIFA World Cup final beating Brazil, Larry Page and Sergey Brin started Google Incorporated, and the first ever piece of the International Space Station was launched into space from a Kazakhstani Cosmodrome.
A lot has changed since IVAO’s humble beginnings in 1998. IVAO’s incredible development has only been made possible through the tireless commitment of thousands of voluntary colleagues, contributing their free time and expertise to the organisation and the constant feedback and participation of the community.
We are glad our users are part of our history and hope to spend thousands more hours together with them as friends, pilots and ATC on IVAO. Stay tuned for some amazing offers throughout this year for our 25th anniversary!
