First Flights

Our story begins when Captains John J. Correa and Herson Cárdenas meet on the VATSIM network. They decide to create a group of Colombian Virtual Pilots, hoping to connect with other people who share their passion.

Nov 11th 2009
First Official Flight

After a few days, with a larger group, the pilots John Correa, Herson Cárdenas, Diego Sarmiento, Luis Sierra, and Juan S. Jiménez, who would be the official founders, made the first group flight from Simón Bolívar Airport in the city of Santa Marta (SKSM) to Tocumen Airport in the city of Panama (MPTO), thus defining the name "Pilotos Virtuales Colombianos - PIVICO", with which the group would be identified.


The characteristics of the aeroclub are defined:

  • Callsign: "PIVICO"
  • Identifier: "PVC"
  • Slogan: "The virtual wings of Colombia, in the world"
