Hello! I hope everyone in the Infinite Flight Community had a Happy Holiday! It has been awhile since our last post, and we have been hard at work in the meantime. In summary, we have worked to improve our pilots’ experience with a revamped rank system, a new crew center, and various integrations on our website. We are also sad to announce we will be retiring the Virgin America callsign, VX/Redwood, in conjunction with our real-world counterpart. All Virgin America flights will now fall under the Alaska callsign, AS/Alaska.
We got a new group of staff who are dedicated to becoming the best VA on the IFC. And our pilots are some of the best in the community, and group flights are a fun affair in our VA.
Alaska Air Group Virtual is the conglomerate of three airlines Alaska Airlines, Virgin America (thanks to the merger), and Horizon Air. Look for our pilots using the AS callsign, and AAGV preceding their username.
Chief Pilot: @Christian_Richardson
Chief Technology Mananger: @c150pilot
Route Managers: @Liam_Kirk and @Jmacd20
Recruitment Manger: @William_Armstrong
Like all other VA’s we have completed all of our global routes a long time ago. Our route manager is working on putting them into a more modern AirTable. Our Technology manager is working on integrating the routes into our Crew Center. We have well over 100 routes and like our description says airports like Barrow are our specialty.
Our fleet has changed just like that of our real-world counterpart. Our fleet has now expanded to 8 aircraft.
For Alaska Airlines, B737, B738, B739
For Virgin America A319, A320, A321
For Horizon Airlines Dash8-Q400, ERJ-175
We here at Alaska Air Group Virtual honor our commitment to provide our customers with the highest level of customer service alongside a variety of destinations. We are proud to value or great and staff, and we look to survey and our community and discover ways we can improve. We are always out to provide the best service possible!
Our pilots are what we are here for and at AAGV as our the staff we give them our all.
A new Crew Center is under development and will be designed for pilots. It will help to simplify our entire system of finding, flying, and logging flights. The Crew Center will be integrated with Simbrief making it easier for them to plan flights. We will have crew bidding as well.
737 Performance Calculator
We recently acquired a performance calculator for the 737 series of aircraft giving our pilots accurate V-speeds. Our pilots now no longer have to guess their speeds or point of decent.
We have a brand-new website that we are continuing to upgrade. Our website is simplified and is easier to navigate thanks to the addition of the Crew Center. AAGV is one of the most realistic VAs and we never stop striving to be better. Check out our website and join our family. We welcome all newcomers and do everything we can to make their transition into our VA as smoothly as possible.
