Airbus Industry Virtual, or AIBVA, is a virtual airline based on Infinite Flight, a mobile flight simulator that has a well-established community. We offer a whole new experience for our pilots, as we perform a range of flight operations, from test flights, delivery flights on behalf of customers to chartered flights all around the world. The idea of flying a more diverse fleet originated from 2020, where we realised that a lot of airlines only have certain routes and destinations, which gets boring over time. Thus, Airbus Industry Virtual was born, which brings us here.
Hello, bonjour and welcome to Airbus Industry Virtual!
My aviation story brings me back to 2014, where I was lucky enough to leave my country for the very first time, on board MH52 to Kansai International Airport, Japan, as well as the return flight from Tokyo as MH89 (where I had 5 middle seats to myself :D). From that moment, I started researching and learning about aviation, which I eventually came across Infinite Flight (when Global Server wasn’t a thing yet). Though, due to real life commitments, I rarely had time to fly, until when “lockdown” existed. Due to this, I came across the idea of joining virtual airlines. Thanks to those VAs that I’ve joined, it inspired me to build a VA that has more liveries and a flexible operation that allows everyone to explore different destinations, ranging from Mount Pleasant, Paro Airport to Wellington or Sydney. A one-man show is never enough to build a brand new VA, so I am extremely honoured to have my dear friend, @Larerraven to help start up AIBVA, and he is the current COO here. We believe that as time goes, the airline is able to grow and explore the world in a rather different way, so we would like to invite you to be a part of us, no matter your background, culture and personality; because as our slogan suggests, we make you fly .
