Firstly a message from our President {@natedog508}

Welcome to the Air Canada Virtual’s Thread. Thank you for considering the ACVA as your Virtual Airline. We have a large community of active and awesome people who I am glad to call our pilots. We have recently been growing fast and are now at over 100 active pilots! @Seanhickey465, the first CEO of the ACVA, always strove for quality over quantity and I will continue to stand for that as we continue to grow.
See you in the skies,

Our main form of communication is slack. Our slack channels are moderated 24 hours a day insuring things get done as quickly and safely as possible.

Flight Training

It is mandatory for new pilots grade 1 or 2 to take a short flight training lesson. If they need help, links and general advice can be given. If anyone grade 3,4 or 5 want to take it, they can contact our flight trainer if they’d like.


Do I need to pay for any features at all?
Nope, none at all. If someone asks for money its not us!

What are the requirements for pilots?
Here at the ACVA we are happy to facilitate all skill levels, although if your under Grade 3 you will need to go through training before logging flights.

How active do I need to be?
Our pilots must log at least one flight a week. If you need a break longer than this, message a staff member.

Is there a crew center?
There is a pilot center in the works so stay tuned for that.
