Wow! Looks extremely professional might have to apply 🙂
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!
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.
American Virtual has seen some big changes this week. As you all know American Virtual is deeply involved with the Oneworld Virtual Alliance.

Ok great!, can’t wait!
Is there any chance American VA will/could switch to Discord?
We will continue to use slack as it best fits our needs. Everything we do such as PIREP filing and route searching is based in slack. So chances of us switching are 0%. Thanks for your question!

American Virtual has been hard at work making some new additions to the VA that we know all pilots will love!
American Virtual Flight School
Just a few days ago, American Virtual had announced the official launch of the AAVA flight school. This new addition to our VA allows many new things to happen, such as a professionally refined application process, a career mode, as well as an exclusive chance to learn some new things about flying that will help you become as professional and realistic as can be. With 5 training sessions covering different topics each week, led by our own @mkwiecek and @JGrant639, we can ensure that you are learning from the best of AAVA.
New Application Process
Coming with this new addition to our VA is a new application process. All applicants will now have to go through the AAVA Flight School and complete the training requirements that are listed below before being “hired” by American Virtual. This will help us know that we can trust our pilots to represent our strive for professionalism. Something to note is that we are now accepting grade 2 pilots. The reason for this is because we are now training all applicants, so we can help get these grade 2 pilots that are looking to fly for a professional virtual airline in and flying!
Grade 2’s: Grade 2 applicants must attend 7 training sessions and must accumulate 25 hours in the C208 and/or the TBM-900 before being hired by AAVA.
Grades 3-5: Grade 3, 4 and 5 applicants must attend 3 training sessions and must accumulate 10 hours in the C208 and/or the TBM-900 before being hired by AAVA.
