Rules and Regulations

1 General Statement

1.1


The euroSKIES virtual airline simulates a virtual Operations Manual system. The euroSKIES Rules and Regulations are part of the virtual Operations Manual Part I, chapter 1 “General”.

For further information, please refer to our virtual Operations Manual Part I.

1.2

In our network, we refer to all individuals as “he,” regardless of their gender. This is not a gender norm, but a choice we have made to simplify the readability of our text and avoid unnecessary repetitions. We want to emphasize that we welcome every person, regardless of their gender, and do not tolerate any form of discrimination based on gender. We kindly ask for your understanding regarding this decision and encourage you to bring to our attention any instances where our choice of words may be unclear or offensive.
