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…

A lot has been happening these past two weeks at American Virtual. Take a look to see what the board of directors have been implementing/adding to this Virtual Airline.

American Virtual has added over 80 Codeshare routes this week, allowing pilots to fly 10 different liveries, and 4 new aircraft. This brings our total Codeshare route count up to over 150!

The board has also been working on implementing some new things into the airline. I can’t give away specific info as to what we are doing, but I can assure you that these things to come are going to be great. Stay tuned for more info.

That’s a little summary about our past two weeks. If you’re interested in what we are doing above, make sure to click apply now at the top of our thread!


As a few of you may have noticed, our Google Form was closed the past couple days for maintenance. I have made extensive improvements to our entry application with the addition of a 16-question exam.

Applicants will need to score at least a 75% on the entrance exam (12/16 questions correct) to be admitted to American Virtual. Questions cover Piloting, ATC, and general situational awareness.

If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to ask!



~Core 6 Event~

That’s right, American Virtual will be attending part 3 of this amazing core 6 event series! Be sure to look out for our callsigns and we hope/can’t wait to see everyone there!



~Our Apologies~

Recently American Virtual launched an ATC program that shoud not have passed through an executive vote, and should not have been allowed to be launched. The program was a direct copy of IFATC but for training server. On behalf of the American Virtual staff, I would like to say to all that we are sorry for creating such a terrible program that literally was IFATC but for the training server. I would especially like to reach out to, @Tyler_Shelton and @Trio and direct my apologies to them.

The program has now been shut down to show everyone how sorry we are for copy catting. It was unacceptable and you will not see anything like this from American Virtual again. We hope that from this we can move onto better things, but doing things in a unique style.

Thanks for reading, and stay tuned for some big changes to the VA coming shortly.
