In order for me to do some maintenance on the back end of the server/website. They will both be offline for an undefined amount of time.
During this downtime, all asset inactivity timers will be frozen.
Unfortunately I cannot say how long the server & website will be down for. could be hours to a few days but any updates will be posted on The Pilot's Life steam group.
Downtime 4th June - Unknown.
Website, Forums & Server will be affected and may appear offline.
Sorry for any inconvenience but these maintenances must be done. During this downtime the server is getting a hard drive expansion as well as CPU. This could not of been possible without our fantastic donators!

Been a while since ive done a proper announcement on how the server progress has been going.
Since the ownership change we've seen a massive increase of new players onto the server, so on behalf of the community: Welcome!
In the last month we have managed to gain over 200 new members onto the server, albeit some hackers but our ever-so trusty Ricardo has dealt with most of them.
You have may of noticed in the last few days that my ingame VIP Level has increased to "4". This is due to a new addition into the server ranks which will be called: Pilot's Life Sponsor. Which holds many new advantages and features unique to it. Some of the features are:
Extra House Slot - Need more room for cars? Now you can own 4 to help complete your collection.
Increased Interest - With a few brown envelopes to the right people. You will now recieve an increase in your interest payments
Hats! - Missed a seasonal event? Now you can chose one hat from the selection to add to your collection (does not include the Golden Santahat)
Custom Login - Want to look awesome when logging into the server? You can now customize the title. For example: Dildo God Aaron has connected, instead of PL Supporter
/DrinkBleach - Special Kill command with an effect! (suggested by Shazi)
Of course this list is not complete as the rank is still very much work in progress. To get this rank you must donate a total of 30usd to the server. Depending on your vip level the price will vary:
Vip 0 > PL Sponsor = $30
Vip 1 > PL Sponsor = $25
Vip 2 > PL Sponsor = $20
Vip 3 > PL Sponsor = $10
If you have a suggestion on any more features, feel free to post them on forum :)

As some of you are aware, Haydz has decided to relinquish control of Pilot's Life to me.
Haydz has made such a wonderful server, and the community it has had within it has been amazing. Words cannot express my gratitude to Haydz for allowing us to play here. It will be sad to see him go but his legacy which he has left behind is something I want to preserve and keep going for a long time.
Message from Haydz:
Thank you for playing!
Unfortunately I don't have time nor can I afford to continue hosting this community
I hope you have enjoyed your time here as much as I have :)
Thanks for all the great times Haydz, and we all wish you the best of luck in all your endeavours.
Fly Fly Fly!

Greetings all, Aaron here.
Pilot's Life has been going for near on 6 years now, a very long lifespan for a SAMP server. Since 2011 Pilot's Life has tried to give you the best playing experience you could ask for. These 6 years have not been smooth sailing, we've had our ups and downs.
The community on Pilot's Life is something to be proud of, we have had and still got many player's who have contributed much to this server, whether it be by creating maps or suggesting new content the server was entirely built around the community that still supports us.
However, due to the longevity of this server's lifetime, there are now a few problems that have arose. You may of noticed that the economy of the server is entirely out of whack, with houses becoming ever more expensive based on their looks / whether they have a gate or not or whether it even has a payphone. This gives many of our newer players a massive disadvantage in playing the game, what some of out veteran player's have is based on years and years of inflating house prices / vehicle prices.
There have been many attempts on fixing this, such as increasing taxes or the re-implementation of house taxes. Sadly none have managed to even dent the damage which has already been done.
because of this I hereby announce that the server economy will be reset on the 3rd of June 2017.
Please do not be disheartened with this but it is a last resort. As much as it may seem you are losing everything, it is giving you a chance to aim for something new. Many player's are leaving because of "they are bored", which is down to a simple fact: "Why continue to play, when i have everything I can obtain?"
Personally I also feel like this, Ive been playing since 2011. I've seen the rise and fall of many airlines. Many friends have joined and left the server. And in all honesty, if I wasn't the developer here, I most of likely left too.
What will be reset:
-All in-game currency
-All house ownerships (including custom houses)
-Many maps will be removed for the chance to add newer / bigger maps
-All airlines and companies banks / fleet will be reset to 0/10. Airlines will be given money to purchase new aircraft upon reset.
-Airline / company Stats will also be reset
What will not be reset:
- Vip / Admin level (Vip Level 3's will be able to claim their gifts again)
- Any event item (Santa Hat / Witch Hat)
All player's who joined the server will be given a "Pilot's Life" veteran Hat upon reset
Airlines and companies will retain their current owner's. However any inactive airlines or companies will be removed from the server.
I understand some player's will be angry, I understand some may be happy. But do not argue about it, keep the memories of what you have done and aim for better heights. This reset will most likely be a double edged sword, as well as tackling the problems at hand I understand that some players may want to leave and give up, but if nothing is done the server will become stagnant and eventually close.
If there are any concerns, please do not hesitate to ask, furthermore if there any suggestions please say.
Fly high my friends.

You may of noticed an influx of new player's on the server in the last few days/weeks. This is because we're now back on the hosted tab!
Expect even more players in the coming months and experienced pilots feel free to help and give advice to our new pilots
