As 2018 draws to a close, I want to take this opportunity, on behalf of the Board of Governors, Executive Committee and Founders, to extend our seasons greetings to you however you celebrate this time of year.

2018 has been an exciting year for VATSIM with some incredible achievements, none of which could be possible without you: our members who make up this great online hobby.

I'm excited, as I know others are, for what the next year will bring to our network and I'm personally looking forward to being a small part of delivering significant improvements to the VATSIM experience for all our members.

To you and your families, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. I'm looking forward to seeing you in the virtual skies very soon.
