About the IFVARB

Information Thread

The Infinite Flight Virtual Airline Regulatory Board is the governing and assisting body that controls and coordinates all efforts and operations within the VA community. The Infinite Flight Virtual Airline Regulatory Board is designed and intended to enhance the VA sector of the Infinite Flight Community.

The IFVARB is intended to make VAs more professional, organized, and in line with the guidelines and standards of the community. In addition, the IFVARB helps clear up some of the clutter on the forum that certain members find inconvenient and irritating while also making the presence of Virtual Airlines clearer and more beneficial.

Our main goal is to benefit new and existing VAs that add value to the community by creating a professional, organized, and pleasant atmosphere for like-minded individuals to thrive and grow within.

Airport ICAO Airport Name Region Misc
LEMD Madrid-Barajas Adolfo Suárez Airport EU West Airliners
LEGT Getafe Air Base EU West Military
LECU Madrid–Cuatro Vientos Airport EU West General Aviation
LEZL Seville Airport EU West Feeder Airport*
LEMG Málaga-Costa del Sol Airport EU West Feeder Airport*
LXGB Gibraltar Airport EU West Feeder Airport*

NOTAMS:

  • Feeder Airport (*): We do not assign stands at these airports- they will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. Larger VAs may benefit from independently departing a different airport to better control arrival times. SID/STARs at these airports will be at ATC discretion. We expect all pilots to follow ATC instructions and demonstrate competent airmanship.

  • Slot assignments will be provided several days prior to the 2021 Summit Main Event. All sign ups will be processed via the sign up website on the IFVARB. All sign ups are subject to approval by the IFVARB and the certified virtual airlines.

NOTAMS:

  • Please ensure that you are parking on the correct lines.

  • Please note that the stand code refers to that of your stand. Please ensure that you select an aircraft that will fit.

  • Please time your arrivals/departures accordingly. We are anticipating an average of 120 movements per hour, so late arrivals may cause undue delays


Ground Procedures

Provided closer to event

In Air Procedures

Provided closer to event

NOTAMS:

  • Two published plans have been designed (Plan Alpha and Plan Bravo) and we will announce which plan is effective on the day of the event.

  • Despite being intricate, the ground procedures are designed to sustain efficient traffic flow. Please have the ground charts either memorized or handy to prevent gross navigational errors on the ground.

  • We expect pilots to follow all SIDs and STARs to maintain separation. We recommend programming in an approach but be prepared for vectors from radar control in the approach phase.

  • If you have any questions or concerns about the procedures, please reach out to @ IFVARB and @ JoshFly8.


Spectators:

Spectators are invited to spectate from empty gates/remote stands throughout the airport.

Disclaimer/Nota Bene:

  • Although an attempt will be made by ATC to adhere to the predetermined plans, attendees are reminded that ATC instructions supersede these
    plans.

See you there!
