Founded in early 2020, Air China Virtual is dedicated to making the pilot experience as professional and as fun as possible. Through daily, weekly, and monthly events, partnerships, pilots prizes, and much more, we keep our pilots happy and active. Our professional training programs, career modes, and weekly educational activities allow pilots of all skill levels and ages to learn something!

A Message From Our Founder

Hello, my name is Jarrett Schiedemeyer and I am the President and Founder of Air China Virtual. As a kid, my head was always aimed towards the sky hoping that a plane would fly overhead. At a young age, I had moved around a bit around Wisconsin, my home state. After a few years, my family settled down in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, where I currently live. Growing up living in the same city as EAA AirVenture meant that my love for aviation was skyrocketed each time I saw a plane “rock its wings” for the FISKE Arrival. As a 16-year-old AvGeek, I want to learn as much about aviation as I can, just like anyone else. My goal is to lead Air China Virtual to it’s greatest potential with professionalism and fun in mind. Hop aboard CAVA for the ride of the lifetime and join us in making IF history as the best VA in China!

With Excitement and Gratitude,
Jarrett Schiedemeyer, President and Founder of Air China Virtual

Here at Air China Virtual, we offer two programs. The Peony Program and the Phoenix Program. Both programs focus on flying, fun, and professionalism. Don’t feel comfortable in the program you are in? No worries! You have a chance each month to join the opposite program with all flight hours and mile transferring!

The Peony Program

The Peony Program, named after the beautiful flower worn on our 737-700’s in Infinite Flight, is one of two career paths our pilots are able to take. The Peony Program is a laid back pilot program. With a requirement to fly once every 30 days and regular rank movement. This program is perfect for first-timers to the VA business or even the most expert of pilots wanting to enjoy Air China Virtual casually while having fun in the cockpit!

The Phoenix Program

The Phoenix Program, named after our tail logo, is the second program for our pilots to choose from. The Phoenix Program is a Professional Program. With a requirement to fly once every 7-14 days and a sophisticated rank-up system in which you must pass certification tests to fly a specific type of aircraft, this is certainly a path for career-like pilots! This program is meant for professional flyers that enjoy impromptu hub changes, aircraft certification tests, and even special missions!

Designed by Pilots for Pilots

From flying the CRJ-200 up to Mongolia or the Queen of the Skies to Los Angeles, at Air China Virtual we tailor to whatever flight our pilots fancy. At Air China Virtual we don’t want our pilots to be stuck on regional routes. That’s why we have Air China Cargo operations, the whole cargo fleet and route network unlock immediately upon joining!
