Can I fly using another livery outside United Airlines or Continental?
Regards,

William

Yes, but it must be a Star Alliance Livery as per the SOP.

I need some clarification on this, Jared. The SOP says:

"Aircraft Usage & Aircraft Livery:
e. Flights must be completed in a United or another Star Alliance airline livery. If a pilot submits a PIREP with a non United Airlines, United Express, or STAR Alliance airline livery, the PIREP will be rejected.
f. Charter flights can ONLY be flown in United Airlines or United Express livery. NO Exceptions. g. Pilots are limited to flying aircraft in their CAT rating. Pilots are allowed to substitute aircraft on any flight as long as,
1. the pilot is eligible to fly the plane (i.e. in his/her CAT rating or lower), and
2. the aircraft being is flown is the same livery."

My interpretation is that a flight can be made in the livery of a Star Alliance partner - e.g., Air Canada - without being a specific Air Canada Star Alliance livery. Several of our Star Alliance partners have special Star Alliance liveries but I don't know if such a livery is available for each airframe in our hangar. For example, I don't know that there is an Air Canada Express Star Alliance livery for the Majestic Q400 but we are accepting Air Canada Express Q400 PIREPs.

Is my interpretation correct?

Kevin,
It does not have to be the specific Star Alliance Livery. As long as the airline is in the Star Alliance, you can fly any variant that airline uses.

What about Germanwings and Eurowings (Lufthansa daughter companies)? Once ago there was a communication email that those two airlines will be accepted as part of Lufthansa group Aka Star Alliance. Is that still valid?

That is good news actually. Now I can go find other aircraft then. I still use FS9 and FSX SE and our fleet available here on this site .... yuck. Horribly bad. And payware is not in my budget (wish it was).
If I could I would. If I don't, it's because I am lazy!
