The following features are available to the pilot who "owns" the profile any time that they view it while logged in.
By clicking on the buy ticket link, any pilot can buy a ticket to an airport at which they are not currently located at. This will help the pilot reach their aircraft in order to fly them.

From here, typeratings can be assigned. Typeratings come in two different forms, a training rating and a full typerating.
A training typerating allows you to fly training flights with the aircraft you have the rating for but you do not earn any profit from those flights.
Once a full typerating is given to a user, they may fly actual flights with the aircraft specified by the rating and they will earn profit from these flights.
A rank may be assigned to a pilot from the assign rank link, this allows an executive of a virtual airline to assign the pilot a rank that can range from Trainee to CEO.
Here a pilot can be grounded if the CEO feels that it needs to be done. You will be grounded automatically if you crash a flight until the CEO ungrounds you.
A CEO can kick(or fire) a pilot from their virtual airline if they feel it nessecary.
Here the CEO can tip the pilot some money from the virtual airline's budget. The amount of money given to the pilot times the current multiplier will be deducted from the VA's budget.
