Air Canada Virtual | A New Look, But The Same VA

Welcome To The Air Canada Virtual Airlines Official Thread!


Firstly, a message from the President himself:

Welcome to the official Air Canada Virtual Airlines thread. It’s my privilege to be leading this VA after being a staff member since day 1! After being in charge for almost half a year, I have seen this VA at our bottom and the only reason we got out of it is because of the team I am so fortunate enough to work with! What I have realized is that no matter if this is your third or your first time being in a VA, you will feel welcomed here. Thank you for checking out our VA and we hope to see you aboard soon!

“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!

We here at the ACVA have some amazing news to share. We have some new staff updates! @Xpira has decided that it is best if he drops down from Events manager to fill in the role of Human Resources! This means that Events manager needed filling and we have hired @Shane_Cullen, a Senior Commander with over 800 hours of flight time with the ACVA! We look forward to seeing what Shane will accomplish as he joins the staff team up in the cockpit!

Overview of staff changes:
Xpira --> Event Manager --> New Human Resources Manager
Shane --> Pilot --> Events Manager

Along with these staff changes, we have a few internal changes. They consist of new staff badges, an updated recruitment system, an updated callsigns sheet and an inactivity check which has been needed for some time. Thank you for reading and we will see you all in the skies!
