POTM - Pilot Of The Month

Due to the different change that we had to do with our Crew Center’s we don’t have an POTM for this month.



We at Air Belgium Virtual want’s to thanks all of you who’ve been patient during this transition month, we did some try for new features but unfortunately it wasn’t a success. And we want also to thanks all the new pilot that have joined us during this month! With that being said, stay tuned, tomorrow a big announcement is coming!

Hello everyone, today we have a good news to announce.


A new logo

Just as we had done for Halloween, we decided to put in place a special logo for Christmas, it was completely revised from a color point of view and the background was updated to fit the spirit of Christmas and the winter season.

A fresh style

Something new that we also decided to do is to change all our banners from our thread and put them in the Christmas colors in the same idea as our logo. You’ll see, the rendering is great!

We are delighted to announce that Air Belgium (IRL) has decided to start cargo operations on B748F in 2022. We have therefore decided to implement a cargo division within our database route. The cargo routes are not yet known so we will base ourselves on the one performed by CMA CGM at the beginning and then we will adapt to the Air Belgium network. Note that CMA CGM Air Cargo flies under Air Belgium callsign.

Air Belgium Virtual - Best New VA/VO of 2021


I have the greatest honor to announce that our VA has been voted the best new VA/VO of the year 2021. I must admit that I did not expect it, I am so proud because thanks to all the work we have provided in order to manage to win this wonderful title! I wanted to thank the whole team of staff and all the pilots who are there every day with us to make this VA live!

I would also like to say a word about this year 2021 which, although our VA is only open in October, will have been simply crazy for us because we were lucky to have several people who wanted to apply for our VA despite the fact that we have few routes, we fixed this problem by introducing many codeshares! And we are more than happy to say that a lot of programs will see the day during the year 2022.

Thanks also to all the VA/VO who trust us by making codeshares with us and we are happy to have you as a partner. We hope the best for the year 2022 to all our pilots, Staff, and codeshare but also to the entire Infinite Flight community.

Also, congrats to @flybarroso with TAPVA for the second place on the podium in the rewards for the best new VA/VO! You really deserve it, you did an amazing job!

I wanted to wish, to all the Community a wonderful new Year and the best in your all projet!


Air Belgium Virtual - A New Era


With this new year, Air Belgium Virtual releases its new project, The New Era, this project aims to give an even more modern image of our VA and it will start with the update of our thread that you could see finished in 2/3 days. We hope you enjoy everything we have planned for this New Year!

Just joined this VA. I first want to congratulate Air Belgium on Best New VA of 2021! What an accomplishment in and of itself. This VA has a CEO and staff second to none. Organization and professionalism is astonishing.

I would recommend this VA to anyone looking to join a VA that is still in the growing stage and grow with the VA.

I hope you all are doing well. I’m doing this announcement today because we are moving to our final crew center as we were working on this one. Let me introduce, the vaBase Crew Center. And I am pleased to announce that we will review our rank system and make changes to it we also have good news to announce, the Crowned Club Member is coming really soon.


How can I create an account ?

For that, is really simple please head to Air Belgium Virtual. Please create an account and our staff will accept it as soon as he can. We will transfer your hours in the same time. Please do all create an account in the coming 72h.

TAP Virtual | Codeshare

I am very pleased to announce that we have found an arrangement with the virtual company TAP Virtual regarding a codeshare between our two VAs. I wanted to personally thank @flybarroso for allowing us to have this codeshare. We hope you enjoy the routes chosen.

Where is the codeshare routes ?

We are currently adding the codeshare routes on this system but you can already start doing pirep with that by checking the flight number on our airtable.

Ranking System Lifted

With immediate effect, our rank system will be lifted for reasons of rework. We will work over the next few days on a new rank system for you, our pilots and do it better than before because we know that imposing restrictions on our codeshares is not necessarily the best idea.

Crowned Club Member

We are pleased to announce today that the Crowned Club Member is open. The Crowned Club Member is the “private” club for the most active people within the VA and who have shown a real desire to participate in the projects. These people will have access to a private channel and perks that will be announced to you in a few days, when we will have re-rank the system.

Create an account on our new platform

I take advantage of this announcement to also make you a reminder that you must apply for our new crew center by the end of this weekend. Thank you in advance.

Update on the thread - Graphic Side

We’ve just update our thread in terms of design, do not hesitate to take a look at it.

We are making this announcement to announce a number of things. We hope you will enjoy it. We’ve been working on that for a little while so now it’s time to showcase all of that new things.


Crew Center | Event Schedule

We’ve created a page that will take you to our event schedule this year. This page will be updated at each event and each month to post the event schedule. We are doing this to let you know when our events will be for the coming month. For the moment this is not something automatic but we are actively working on it to have it active as automatic. You can find that one on the navbar in operations. Air Belgium Virtual

Air Belgium Virtual | Removing of the A346

Air Belgium recently indicated its willingness to withdraw their A343 from service, which seems normal with their new A339. We decide, with immediate effect, to also remove them from the fleet. It’s not just for that reason that we’re doing it, we’re seeing very few pilots who have the will to fly that plane. That’s largely why we’re removing it from the fleet.

Air Belgium Virtual | Charter Program

A new program will be introduced in the coming month within the VA. This program will aim to allow pilots to fly where they want according to a schedule indicate who will be, as our featured-routes update every week. This will be based on a featured region and pilots will be able to fly to or from EBBR or EBCI.

Air Belgium Virtual | Event Leader Stepped Down

Our Event Leader, @AviationChampion had to leave his position as an event leader, he will still be around as an advisor. We thanks him for his services.


And that’s all for the announcements of today. We really hope you will enjoy those new things!
