Introducing The All New American Virtual

~Where We Are Always Going For Great~

Website // Apply Now // Instagram


Here at American Virtual, we strive to provide pilots with the best Virtual Airline experience possible.

As soon as you join our slack you instantly become apart of the family that American Virtual’s staff and pilots are.

American Virtual is a VA for the pilots, meaning we do things based on what the pilots request! If the pilots want something added or taken away, you can expect our staff to take the measures to do so.

If you like what you see, read on to find out more about us!


American Virtual was founded in November of 2017 by Chris Hoover, along with Bobby Klesch and Dillon Greene. As soon as the doors opened, the VA thrived. With over 20 applicants per week, the VA became one of the largest known to Infinite Flight with 138 members by New Years of 2018.

It was in March of 2018 that things took a wrong turn. American Virtual closed in late March, due to circumstances that will be kept confidential.

However, now American Virtual is back! We can promise all pilots and future pilots that this VA will not go down the dark path it did in the past.

So, that’s a little bit about our past. Let’s come back now into the present!


Our staff team is here 24/7 to ensure that everything in the VA is going swell. We are also here all the time to interact with all of our pilots. Whether they have questions, concerns, requests, complaints or they just want to talk, we are here to listen!

A Professional Crew Center

A Warm Enviornment

As said above, we always are providing a warm environment for our pilots. We communicate using slack as well as a discourse like this one! Which makes us one of the only VAs to use a discourse alongside a slack.

Realistic Cancellations

One other thing we do at American Virtual is make realistic cancellations due to current weather conditions at airports and/or if there is something that causes certain flights to be canceled/diverted.


Finally we provide an Instagram for all of our pilots as well as community members to follow! The Instagram will have announcements about the VA, pictures of and from flights as well as news about flight cancellations. Follow us @american.virtual


American Virtual has a few partnerships and is involved in one alliance. Check them out below!


Alaskan Airlines Virtual Group

~Alaskan Airlines Virtual Group @Dashsolpher1 ~
The Alaskan and American Virtual partnership is a codeshare agreement between Alaska Virtual and American Virtual, allowing each airlines pilots to fly each other’s aircraft, liveries and routes. The partnership runs on the motto, “Better, together.” A simple but meaningful motto for a great partnership.

~The One World Virtual Alliance~

The One World Virtual Alliance was created with a goal to bring multiple VAs together, as well as create multiple codeshare agreements, allowing pilots of the participating VAs to fly other aircrafts/liveries other than what their VA typically flies.

Nice to see things have turned around and gone for the better for American, you gentlemen need to keep striving for the better and not let anything stop you. You guys must work as a team, and keep ”Going for Great”. In order to have a successful buisness you must be able to cooperate with eachother and have a strong healthy bond in order to work to make things for the better.

I hope to see this VA keep going for great, and keep rising upwards and not let anything spiral downwards. I congratulate you guys, Hoover, Bobby, and the rest to keep striving for the best.

I have high expectations for this Virtual Airline.

Onwards and Upwards,
Warm Regards,


Glad to see American Virtual is up and running again!


Thanks Chief! Your words mean so much :)


I want you to turn this into something great, so any words of encouragement would be something you must take to the heart. :)
