ds_logo__2_

Our Head of Events @ODW has created an event series, he calls; Destination Saturdays (DS), but what is Destination Saturdays?

Destination Saturdays is a monthly series dedicated to city-hopping and short-haul flying to the most interesting locations and airports across the globe. So why don’t you join the pilots of AF-KLM Virtual Airlines at a new destination on the second Saturday of every month.

We also plan on adding a series for our in-house pilots, so all the more reason to join us!

AF-KLM History

Before Air France-KLM we were once known just as Air France Virtual Airline, which was founded on the month of January 2017, when one of our founders, Stryder decided to set up a VA. So as time went forward, Stryder approached @Camr and Nabil Nohra who together helped Co-found Air France Virtual Airline. The VA was opened and it started to see some success with pilots joining and flying under the VA. After some time, due to reasons Stryder stepped had stepped down on the month of February, Giving the Presidential job to one of his trusted co-founders Cameron! Under the leadership of Cameron, the VA continued to grow and with more pilots, but the staff team that Stryder had left Cameron with, started to get overwhelmed and messy. So, Cameron reorganized the staff team making them more efficient and more organized. Cameron created more detailed pilot applications and created a new and intricate thread for the Va. Unfortunately, due to time constraints and some more pressing issues Cameron had to give the presidential job to someone who he knew he could trust! And so, on the month of May Avon was given the job of president and CEO. Under him Air France VA went under immense changes! Air France VA Has now become one of the most active VA’s in IF but Avon didn’t stop there. He went to seek for more, and thus like in real life Air France merged with KLM making both VA’s go under one name and under one leadership. Soon after the IFVARB appeared and Avon pushed to get Air France-KLM certified by the IFVARB and was successful. Unfortunately due to personal reasons Avon stepped down and in June 2017 Kenny1238 was given the role of president. Finally, in October 2017, @Luke was given presidential power of the VA after being the deputy president for a while and also having experience in other roles within AF-KLM VA. Since then the airline has continued to grow and we are now 60+ members strong.


How about joining our VA?

Before you can become one of our pilots, you will have to choose on which part of the VA would you like to start in first. Meaning for the first three ranks you can only log flights with some aircraft pertaining to the VA you first joined. Then, when you have reached Rank 4 (Senior First Officer) you will be able to fly aircraft and routes of both VAs.

I wish I could join but, I don’t have live.

Hello!
Do you want to hear some good news? You don’t need a live subscription, you can log flights using solo mode! (although we would prefer pilots to have live) we have no problem having pilots who can’t fly on live.

How’s that? I might be interested but I won’t be getting live until global is released.

@JoelJ

Permitting that you have Infinite Flight Installed to your phone, you can join. You can log flights in ‘solo’ mode. Although, this outrules a key aspect of our Virtual Community which is group flights.
