Khyden Bennett - CEO

Hello everyone! My name is Khyden Bennett and I love aviation and everything around it! I live in England and I am part south African. My favourite food is chocolate and I have the amazing staff team to work with at Ryanair Virtual! If you would like to message me you can find me in the Ryanair virtual slack or on the IFC @khyden_bennett! Stay safe and enjoy your day!

Joseph Seabourne - COO

Hey, I’m Joseph, newly COO at Ryanair Virtual. Firstly, I’m very privileged to have been given this position for such a great virtual airline. Ryanair has been a firm favourite of mine for a while now, so it brings me great pride to be a part of the VA. I hope to do great things for this VA; bring my knowledge of Ryanair’s real-world standard operating procedures and the Boeing 737 to our pilots, bridge the gap between our pilots and the community, and so much more!
One of the many things I love about FRVA and Ryanair as a whole is the massive route network and variety. As you move through the ranks, you’ll get the chance to visit countless places and fly thousands of different routes. And it’s not all the boring stuff like Heathrow and Charles De Gaulle that everyone has been to a million times before. We fly almost everywhere else, all those small, unique, sometimes challenging, and always fun destinations! From Scandinavia to the Canaries, Ireland to Turkey, cities, beaches, and airports nestled in valleys, Europe and our network has got to be the most diverse out there! It never gets old.
Thank you, Khyden, and everyone at FRVA for giving me this opportunity, and I hope if you aren’t with us already, you’ll consider joining this fab VA. We can’t wait to have you on board!

Alfie Hunt - Chief Pilot

Hi, my name is Alfie! I am a chief pilot here at ryanair virtual. At ryanair, everyone’s friendly and up for a chat! With a vast route network you will never run out of route possibilities.

Here at Ryanair Virtual we use slack as our messaging channels and where pilots can communicate and show everyone where they have been! When you join you will be given a invite link when you have completed our pilot exam. Then you shall be greeted with greetbot who will give you some usefull and handy information


With callsigns at Ryanair Virtual, we have had to change them due to the 20.2 update on infinite flight. So the callsign will look like this: Ryanair XXX VA

Crew Centre

With logging flights at Ryanair Virtual, we have completely changed it. We now use a crew centre called PHP VMS. It is more efficient than Airtable. We do update our crew centre regularly and makes it peace of mind for staff and pilots to use.
