🇨🇦 Soaring the Canadian skies since 2017.
Welcome to our brand new event thread. We’ve taken some time to improve what we post on the Infinite Flight Community, to make sure that all our threads and posts remain visually aesthetic and convey information clearly. So, who are we? Founded all the way back in November of 2017, VirtualPorter is an Infinite Flight virtual airline based around Porter Airlines, a small Canadian regional carrier operating within Eastern Canada and parts of the Eastern U.S. Our operations within the VA is from the view of a pilot, not the passenger. With this in mind, we want to offer our pilots the best resources for flight available in a VA. Our vision is simple: to be a laid back virtual organisation with a vibrant community centred around our real life counterpart. We are an IFVARB certified VA.

Well, it marks the launch of our newly introduced Porter Xplorer event series, where we will aim to make a successful round trip across the world, pushing our trusty Q400 to its limits.

👩✈️ Looks good? Sign up!
As there are only 8 gates available in total at our destination airfield (CYYT), we are only able to take a maximum number of 8 pilots with us. That means gate spaces (if event is popular) will run out very quickly, so sign up fast before they’re taken! If you choose to have your name underneath, please ensure that you do attend the event (and if that’s not possible, PLEASE notify us, latest by 8 hours in advance). We’re excited, and hope to see you there!
We are VirtualPorter. That means we are unaffiliated with the real world organisation. Visit flyporter.com for the real world airline.
