airBaltic Virtual | The Alpine Dash

Join us for our first-ever Infinite Flight Community event! Dash towards the Alps with us as we journey from Riga International Airport (EVRA) to Zurich International Airport (LSZH). Help us fill the Baltic skies with the airBaltic Bombardier Dash 8-Q400.


airBaltic Virtual aims to replicate the operations and services of the real-world airBaltic airline within the virtual aviation community of Infinite Flight. We take pride in maintaining a diverse and modern fleet that closely mirrors airBaltics’ real-world aircraft. Our fleet consists of Infinite Flight’s A220-300, A319-100, A221-200, A330-200, Boeing 737-800, Boeing 757-200, and Bombardier Dash 8-Q400. Our route network is designed to emulate airBaltics’ global connectivity. Our network encompasses major hubs, such as Riga International Airport (EVRA), Tallinn Airport (EETN), Vilnius International Airport (EYVI), and Tampere–Pirkkala Airport (EFTP) while also including scenic destinations, underserved airports, and codeshare partnerships with other virtual airlines.

We also recognize the importance of fostering a strong and engaging community among our pilots. Regular community events, such as group flights and challenges, will be organized to encourage interaction and camaraderie among members. A dedicated website, Discord channel, and community forum presence will serve as platforms for pilots to share their experiences, seek advice, and collaborate on various aviation-related topics. airBaltic Virtual will also collaborate with other virtual airlines to expand its reach within the virtual aviation community within Infinite Flight.

In order to provide the best possible ATC coverage for this event, we kindly request that IFATC members consider staffing both Riga International Airport (EVRA) and Zurich International Airport (LSZH). This will enhance realism, coordination, and overall enjoyment for everyone involved.

However, in the event of a shortage of available controllers, we kindly ask for your understanding and flexibility. In such cases, please adhere to the following guidelines:

  • Familiarize yourself with the specific procedures for Riga International Airport (EVRA) and Zurich International Airport (LSZH). Ensure you are well-versed in the taxiways, runways, and any unique airport operations.

  • In the absence of active ATC, pilots will rely on the Unicom frequency for communication. It is crucial to use Unicom correctly, providing clear and concise information about your intentions, such as taxiing, departing, or landing.

  • Before pushing back from the gate, it is vital to check the METAR for both departure and destination airports. Stay up-to-date with weather conditions, including wind speed and direction, visibility, and any significant changes that may affect aircraft operations.

By adhering to these guidelines, we can ensure a realistic and enjoyable experience for all participants, even in the absence of active ATC. Your professionalism and commitment to maintaining the highest standards of aviation within Infinite Flight are greatly appreciated.



When ATC services are available, it is mandatory to follow all instructions given by the controllers. Maintain professionalism, adhere to proper procedures, and cooperate fully to ensure efficient traffic flow.

It is crucial to understand that airBaltic Virtual or any of our staff members are not responsible for any violations that may occur during the event. Each pilot is individually responsible for adhering to the Infinite Flight rules and guidelines at all times.

We kindly request that all participants behave in a professional manner throughout the event. Show respect to fellow pilots and controllers, refrain from disruptive behavior or trolling, and maintain a positive and welcoming environment for everyone.

We appreciate your cooperation in adhering to these NOTAMs and helping us create a memorable and successful Alpine Dash event. Remember, your actions contribute to the overall experience of each participant. These NOTAMs are subject to change leading up to the start of the event.
