Firstly, a message from the President himself:

Welcome to the Air Canada Virtual Airlines official thread! I have been with the ACVA since the very first day and it is my honor to lead this great VA. I have seen everything in this VA from the high moments when we thrived to the low times when we really struggled. This VA has only survived the lows because of the great staff team we have. No matter of your experience or timezone, ACVA welcomes you. We have a very diverse group of pilots and staff that will make you feel right at home. Thank you for taking the time to view our VA and I hope to see you in our slack soon!

We Are An IFVARB Approved Virtual Airline

“Travel, Explore, Experience | Vous voyagez, Vous explorez, Vous expérience”


Air Canada Virtual Airlines was founded in January of 2018 by Sean Hickey. He brought together a team of 5 individuals from many different VA’s with many different talents. Within 5 days of opening we had over 25 active pilots and were immediately making an impact in the community. In June of 2018, Sean decided that it was best if he moved on and put the VA in the hands of Nate. Since then, we have made many staff changes, updates & more all for the improvement of the VA’s quality by following the saying, “quality over quantity.” That is something we believe in and stick to every day as we add things to improve this VA!

That’s our past, now onto the present!


Here at the Air Canada Virtual, we have chose a team who dedicate their spare time to make ACVA a wonderful place! Our Staff & Admins have experience from multiple other VA’s and this makes us very unique. Click to see their names!

Wow, if this would’ve been posted about 2 weeks ago, I would’ve joined, but now I’m starting my own VA. I wish you guy’s the best though, and this is an awesome thread!

The biggest change of this new thread is our President, @natedog508, will be resigning from his spot as the president.

Here is a statement from Nate:

This VA opened 601 days ago. 601 and one days. That’s over a year and a half! I started off as the Deputy President and a few months later I was brought up to CEO. That day was 448 days ago. It’s been an amazing year and 3 months and I wouldn’t of wanted them any other way! I had over 900 flight hours with this VA which were full of group flights, one of which with over 20 pilots! I witnessed the Core-6 events, over 150 ACVA events and all of the internal events our Event Manager and myself had hosted. This is not a goodbye, it’s a see you later. I’ll remain active in the slack for a few months to ensure a smooth transition to your new CEO!

Speaking of your new CEO, you probably want to know who it is. The last remaining founding member, @The_Geniusman, will be taking over as CEO of the ACVA. He’s been here for all 601 days and I know I’m leaving it in good hands.

On that note, it’s been an AMAZING experience while leading this VA for the past year and 3 months. I’ve loved each and every moment and I look forward to witnessing the VA grow from a new perspective. Once again, this isn’t goodbye, it’s see you later. Feel free to pm me on the IFC whenever you need or my public instagram whenever you’d like. However for now, see you in the skies.

Thanks for everything.
Nate Weisman ACVA CEO 6/18/18-9/9/19

Well, I’m sure things have been a bit hectic over the last month with this President change. So just give it some more time. They need to rebuild their Staff Team (DP and Flight Manager) before they can fully continue :))

Ok. I was part of ACVA (ACVA278) before as my first VA, I had no experience of how a VA works, and no idea of Slack. Now I’m active everyday, and the main Developer for a new VA!.. Which the CEO has been inactive for over a month for 😕…I’ll reapply.

I literally cannot upload a picture? 🤷‍♂️.

It won’t let Google Photos connect, or link to my device. I may just send a random link and send a screenshot of my grade table via the IFC to whomever PM’s me.
