Our Story

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, however decided to leave in April 2018 for personal reasons. So after being with the VA for a long time, having previous roles, it was decided for @Sam_Jacobs1 to take the lead after showing his impeccable leadership qualities!
