Virtual United States Army Aviation



Jason Anderson

Founder / Chief of Staff

I have been a flight simulation enthusiast for nearly 25 years.  I have fond memories of the very first Microsoft Flight Simulator and the "ever-friendly" environment of the dot-matrix "Downtown Chicago" with Meigs Field.  As flight simming has progressed, so has my passion for all things aviation related.  I only recently managed to join the realm of online flight simulation in 2013.  Until then, I was a solo "artist".  I currently hold a P1 pilot rating with VATSIM, and I have managed to teach myself VORs, NDBs, reading charts, and radio brevity.    

I have a Bachelor's Degree in Emergency Management from West Texas A&M University and a Master's Degree in Public Administration from Sam Houston State University.

I am a real-world prior service veteran of the United States Army, serving in Operation Iraqi Freedom in 2004-2005.  I currently reside in Abilene, TX, with my wife, Heather.  Employed by the City of Abilene, I serve as a Firefighter/Paramedic.  In my free time, I enjoy training and playing with my dog, freelance photography, antique restoration, and woodworking.  


Mike Shortle

Founder / Vice Chief of Staff

I began flying flight simulators with the Sublogic system as a young child.  The love for aviation has never left.  As an adult, I earned my Private Pilots License and have flown many hours with friends and family sitting in the right seat.  My simulator time has been spent flying mostly General Aviation and Military Aircraft.
