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 honour 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 struggled. This VA has only survived the lows because of the great staff team we have. No matter 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!

ACVA President @The_Geniusman



“Travel, Explore, Experience | Voyage, Explorer, 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! Now, we move onto our current President, Genius. The future awaits!

It is my honour to present to you, this new and improved VA. My team and I have put blood, sweat, and tears into developing this VA and making sure, we as a team could make your stay as comfortable as possible. I want to firstly thank my team who have put all it takes into building a VA. I’m happy to see the progress this VA has made in the past years. And I’m confident it will succeed in the years to come.
Happy landings


Founder of ACVA
