Qantas Virtual Group is turning 8 years old!
Eight years ago, we revolutionised the Infinite Flight Virtual Airline Industry with a brand new concept for the community. To this day, we operate as the longest serving Virtual Airline and provide pilots with welcoming and enjoyable environment to learn and grow together. We’re inviting you to celebrate 8 successful years with us!
In celebration, we will be operating multiple events throughout the weekend, starting from 2020-05-14T14:00:00Z → 2020-05-17T14:00:00Z. These events will mostly be internal, but have invited the Infinite Flight Community to join us for a few very special events. To sign up for these events, reply with which event you would like to join and we’ll add you.
All Qantas Virtual Group Pilots will have 2x flight time for the whole weekend!
Just to say a very big thank you to all of our fantastic pilots for sticking with us over the years, we will be giving 2x flight time for every single flight filed between 2020-05-15T06:00:00Z → 2020-05-18T06:00:00Z! This is just a small token of appreciation to all of our pilots who have been respecting QVG in the Infinite Flight skies.
If you aren’t already a QVG pilot, why not join us today and get access to this special 2x flight time anniversary perk…

Over the years, we have always put our pilots first. Check out what @Adam_S has to say about his experience as a Platinum Club member at Qantas Virtual Group;
Over the past 3 years I have been with Qantas Virtual Group, this past year and a half has been the most exciting. As a Platinum Club member, getting to beta test new features and help the staff team with new ideas, as well as find routes and pester them until they add them, it’s been a fun time.
Over my three years, I’ve also been a staff member, retiring in the Human Resources role or so it was called back then. So much has changed since first joined in late 2016, I’ve seen many people, many features and many websites come and go. I’ve made many friends here as well.
In the eight years that Qantas Virtual Group has been running, the thousands of members that have came and gone. This. Career Mode. Is one of the many features that I hope will enhance people’s aviation knowledge, enhance realism and hope will stay for a long while to come.
We would like to give a huge shout-out to the following VA/VO’s for sharing this event thread to their pilots on such late notice. We greatly appreciate and can’t wait to collaborate with you all in the future!
