Peony Program

The Peony Program, named after the beautiful flower worn on Air China’s special 737 livery, is one of two career paths our pilots may choose from. With a requirement to fly once every 30 days and regular rank advancements, the program is fast-paced, laid back, and boasts a huge fleet . It is perfect for both CAVA first-timers and experienced pilots.
Ranks and Rewards

Career Mode

Career Mode is Air China Virtual’s realistic, sophisticated, and serious program. While it does take longer to advance through, Career Mode comes with great rewards. All decisions affect future goals and are completely up to the pilot. Pilots start out in the TBM, eventually working up to the A350. Learn more here .


AMECO stands for Aircraft Maintenance and Engineering Corporation Limited. AMECO is owned by Air China. At Air China Virtual, we offer a plethora of AMECO Maintenance Flights a month. These flights have specific instructions and can be anything from flying a 737-800 that had its engine replaced and needs to be returned to Frankfurt from Beijing to a United 777-300ER that needs to be ferried back to Newark after having a Cargo Door replaced in Beijing! Any rank may fly AMECO routes!

Air China VIP Services

Unlocked at the senior captain rank, Air China VIP Services is a series of monthly routes that focus on VIP and Luxury Private transportation. From flying the Chinese Diplomats on the 747-8 to technology company leaders in the 777-200LR or even business people in the Citation X, Air China VIP Services is all about traveling to unique places with unique aircraft. After reaching the Panda ranks, pilots may fly various aircraft to and from any airport!

Great VA! But I have to say vAloha is closed I think.


Just take a look at all those routes! Love being staff here!!


We happy to be partners with you guys, lovely thread!


do you think it would be better if people in charge of china VA were chinese and people doing african VA were african and so on from their respective countries


Hey @realnickchan thank you for your unique perspective!

While I may not be Chinese, I can assure you CAVA is in great hands! I think being the President of CAVA has allowed me to learn so much about Asian culture! I have a passion for aviation, travel, and helping out as many people as possible! The staff at Air China Virtual ensures the Chinese culture is kept throughout our practices, while allowing everyone to have an unparalleled VA experience! Thank you for the comment though!


And Jarrett has come up with some amazing ideas and features for the VA. There is no rule on what ethnicity you need to run a VA. As long as you are enjoying it and love it you are good!!


What a beautiful thread, whoever designed it definitely has some talent. Air China Virtual is a top-notch virtual airline that I’ve really enjoyed being a part of since the summer of 2020. From the routes to the community, it offers anything and everything that a pilot might want in order to foster a realistic and entertaining VA experience. Keep up the great work, CAVA!


Lovely thread wigs


Not really. Don’t matter what gender/race/age you are as long as you are doing a good job none of those things should matter. Plus they are doing a good job regardless.


This VA is one of the most brilliant VAs I have been a part of. It allowed me to do routes I only dreamed of doing in other VAs and I am very happy to be part of this Journey.

The staff are amazing people and they do their job with diligence and integrity. They are a nice bunch.


I agree, CAVA is definitely one of the best VAs out there! Everyone at CAVA is so kind and I have made many new friends there! @JarrettFlies has also done an amazing job creating the VA, along with all of the staff members keeping this VA running. Totally recommend joining and I am proud to be a part of this VA!


Applied! :)
