Air Canada Virtual 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.

Today, Air Canada Virtual is Infinite Flight’s largest VA in Canada. A founding member of Star Alliance Virtual, ACVA holds a responsibility to pave the way for responsible leadership in the community. With a vast network to explore and a massive fleet to pilot, every newcomer and existing member will find something to love. Through four divisions - Mainline, Rouge, Express, and Cargo - we continue to connect all of earth’s six habitual continents. Our Elevation Rewards Program is a community one-of-its-kind, where members can earn bonuses in many programs such as our renown Career Mode.
