American Virtual Airlines
~Where We Are Always Going For Great~
American Virtual strives for the upmost level of professionalism, while keeping a family like environment.
You can count on us to provide the best experience for you and the rest of our pilots, every single day. With frequent events, membership benefits and more, you can trust what we say about the experience is 100% true!
This airline is an airline of the pilots, meaning we do our best to incorporate anything that pilots would like to see in the airline. This is something that differentiates is from other virtual airlines, and it only adds to the great experience we promise to provide.
American Virtual was founded by Chris Hoover and Bobby Klesch back in November of 2017. The airline thrived quickly, receiving 20 applications a day in our first week of being open. By New Year’s Eve, the airline had 138 pilots and became one of the fastest growing virtual airlines known to Infinite Flight.
Things continued as is until March, when the staff decided to close our doors and refurbish the airline. It was the best decision made, as now American Virtual is back at it with much more of a quality experience, as well as a large quantity of pilots.
As of July 2018, Chris Hoover had given up presidential power. However he decided to come back a month later due to many undisclosed reasons.
So that’s our past, let’s hop into the present!
The American Virtual staff consists of five members. The team works hard to run the airline and make it as best as it can be. They also love to be there for pilots, answering questions and making the experience enjoyable for each individual. Our team is listed below…
