UPS Virtual Presents:


IFC THREAD | JOIN THE FAMILY

With summer kicking off and cargo hauling in full swing, we’re happy to announce our first ever Summer Skies series. True to our DNA, we love group flying and decided to take the IFC along for these upcoming adventures. From quick hops to some nice and easy overnight flights, you’ll get to see what flying with the UPS Virtual family is all about in this new and summer long flight series. This week we kick it off from our home, Worldport in Louisville, Kentucky and fly on over to Austin, Texas for some good ole’ Texas barbecue. We’d love to have you join us!

Over the years we have invested our efforts in providing a fun and laid back atmosphere for pilots who appreciate the freedom that flying cargo provides. With no rank or UPS aircraft restrictions, we provide a sense of freedom to our pilots which they have come to know and love. In a time where many VA’s control how you can fly, we have decided to go a different route. We have no assigned hubs and offer you an updated schedule of our real world counterpart in addition to our Free to Fly Program; which allows you to create your own adventure by following some very simple operating procedures. How do we motivate you to keep flying for us? For one, our family is a close knit group of pilots that are just simply fun to fly with and interact with in our Discord server. Various medals keep you focused on building flight hours and our various codeshare options fill in the gaps where our normal operations wouldn’t be able to take you. Our various and unique to us internal flight programs keep adventures interesting and tailored to real world events while our state of the art crew center equipped with ACARS and many other features makes navigating your pilot portal a breeze.

We are not your typical virtual airline. Come join our family and see just how fun cargo can be.
