New Award - ATP 2020

Clarification: ATP refer to the Association of Tennis Professionals, not Airline Transport Pilot.

The ATP Award flights travel to the ATP Grand Slam, Masters 1000 and ATP Final matches. Please refer to the tracking sheet - http://virtualunitedairlines.org/index.php/downloads - for dates and destinations or http://virtualunitedairlines.org/lib/do ... iteria.pdf.

To complete the ATP2020 Award, fly to the listed airports from a vUAL hub (not necessarily your assigned hub), arriving between the Arrivals Start Date and the Arrivals End Date. So, for example, arrive in Melbourne YMML between Jan. 19 and Jan. 26. So, even if you're assigned to the Newark hub, you can fly RJAA-YMML to qualify for the award flight (during the specified date window, of course).

For Flight#, use your vUAL ID number. For example if you are 277 in the Denver hub, use UAL277 as your Flight# for all ATP flights. You may use Star Alliance liveries for flights originating outside of the United States, e.g., CCA277 coming out of Shanghai.

For PIREP Link, go to Pilot Center after your PIREP is approved, right click on the appropriate Flt Number, choose Copy, then paste into the PIREP link cell on this tracking sheet.

You do not need to fly to the next tournament airport from the previous tournament airport; other non-ATP flights may be completed between tournaments. You can fly into the tournament airport from any other airport; you can fly to any other airport when you leave the tournament airport.

To give newer pilots some "big iron" time, flights for this award are CAT-free; fly any airframe that is appropriate for the journey, regardless of your vUAL rank.

Send the completed tracking sheet to your hub manager and assistant hub manager after you finish all the required flights.

This award will be retired at 0100z, December 1, 2020. At least 10 pilots must complete this award if there is going to be an ATP2021 award.

Do flights have to originate from our assigned hub? The tracking sheet says yes but the forum post and pdf don't specify.

I've amended the post to remove the requirement to fly a return trip from the tournament site and I will amend the criteria to match that. At the same time, I'll add that the flight must be from "a hub", not necessarily your own. So, pilots may want to fly RJAA-YMML instead of all the way from KEWR... ;-)
