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!
ACVA President @natedog508
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!
