VA Spotlight question

Post by madisonlover101 » 16 Dec 2007, 19:07

I was wondering, how is the VA spotlight choice determined?

I believe before Latitude was around, there used to be a thing called 'VA of the Month'. I think this was chosen for a VA that had little PIREPs filed for it the previous month, to try and increase flights; however, I do not know if this is the case with the VA Spotlight article in Latitude.

I believe they are chosen by chance, although you'll have to ask Aaron about it.

Alex's comments are mostly correct; the only change I would make is that the selection is made based on downward trends in PIREP numbers as opposed to just the previous month.

Ah yes, that would explain why some of the most popular VAs have made it onto the VA Spotlight page.
