A Message from the CEO

Welcome to Alaska Airlines Virtual, we’re so glad you could join us. My name is Emilie (or Ava) and I created this airline in the hopes of creating a safe, fun, and educational environment for our pilots and staff to enjoy. We will start by teaching you the basics and putting you on our most basic plane. Over time, as you gain hours and experience, we will allow you to fly other planes in our fleet so that you can fly higher and farther than ever before. We are proud to have you with us and we will do our best to make you feel welcome and included!

I can’t wait to see how this airline will grow in the next year! - @EI-AVA

How we fly

We have a very relaxed way of running an airline. Regarding routes, you can fly any Alaska Airlines route whenever you want to, you are only limited by your plane! It is in this way that we hope to engage pilots and give them many hours of flying fun.

Our Programs

Alaska Airlines Virtual operates in three programs.

  • Alaska Long Haul Program - The Alaska Long Haul Program is only accessible to the Captain Ranks. Offering long-haul destinations for charter and selected destinations!

  • Crew Program - Any pilot in ASA may fly for this program. They are able to enjoy and pursue flying with the airline. Ranks are imposed to maintain order and develop the pilot’s skill in flying the ASA fleet. Special Awards are given to pilots who have shown dedication towards the airline.

Alaska Airlines Virtual also communicates with other virtual airlines for possible codeshare agreements. As well as ensuring that all routes found in the database are updated to provide maximum realism to its pilots.

Our Fleet

At Alaska Virtual we are focused on improving both passenger comfort and our fuel efficiency. We maintain a young operational fleet of Boeing 737 aircraft, Airbus A320 family aircraft, Embraer E-Jets and Bombardier Q400 aircraft.

At Alaska Virtual, we operate destinations to Europe, Asia, Africa, Oceania, South America, and North America. Also, we have a total of more than tbd routes on our routes database, across the globe! Check out our mainline route map below!

At Alaska Virtual, we use Discord as our primary communications hub. ASA maintains an enjoying and fun experience without compromising professionalism. All Infinite Flight rules extend to Alaska Airlines Virtual. Any violations are subject to disciplinary actions and may also lead to expulsion from the airline.

At Alaska Virtual, we have 6 available ranks for all our pilots to climb! Every rank you can access a new aircraft, even it is a codeshare aircraft.

Just a quick reminder that this weeks ROTW routes are celebrating the sunny warm places on our route schedule ☀️ 🌞

Don’t forget you have a few days left to get in your ROTW multiplier routes in. There’s an awesome route from KABQ-KSEA that is definitely worth trying out!

You can find the ROTW info in the ROTW-FNF channel on discord. If anyone is interested in coordinating a group flight please let me know! Any rank may fly the ROTW routes!

This is what I’m greeted with when I try to hit the apply button … I’ll be trying a different browser shortly, but just want to point this out (am using Firefox)

Edit: MS-Edge gave a similar error

I’d like to apply, but it won’t let me

Interesting, thank you for bringing that up. Could you give it a try on Chrome?

@Chillin907
ASVA - Chief Operations Officer

I’ll have to install chrome first, but I can give it a go (although I expect similar results since edge and chrome are both chromium based, and edge failed)

Sounds good, give me an update over PM

Hello everyone!

Hello, hope everyone is doing well. We wanted to address an issue we are experiencing that is temporarily hindering our members and those wanting to join.

The ASVA crew center website (alaskavirtual.ifcrewcenter.com) is currently off line, as are similar crew centers of a number of other VA/ VO’s. This is due to an action taken by a real life airline against the hosting provider for our shared web domain “ifcrewcenter.com”. Work is underway to restart the crew center on another hosting platform.

ASVA operations will continue while the crew center issue is being resolved.

Members are asked to keep a side record of ASVA flight PIREP data.

Anyone interested in joining the VA can apply by contacting @AlaskaAirlinesVA or @Chillin907 by PM here on IFC.

We will continue to update everyone on this issue as things progress both here and on our Discord Server.

See you in the skies!
ASVA Staff
