American Virtual Presents: One Year Anniversary Celebration Week!
American Virtual, founded in 2017 by @Bobby and @Chris_Hoover, quickly became an important part of the virtual airline community, as they accepted 150 pilots in the span of a week. Despite the airline thriving for a few months, the staff decided to close the doors of American Virtual and perform a complete revamp. This was a great decision for the airline as a month later, the doors reopened and the airline began to soar once again. In October of 2018, Chris Hoover along with the staff made the ultimate decision to close the airline for good to allow someone who had brighter and better ideas for American Virtual. In November of the same year, American Virtual was reopened by @VAnuj and had blossomed into a better airline with a stunning future. In May of 2019, Anuj resigned from his post as President and passed the torch to @Dylan_Bright who, at the time, served as the Deputy President and an IFVARB Board Member making him the prime candidate for the position. Dylan is the current President and has helped the VA achieve its maximum potential.
Our events team will be hosting a multitude of events in this week. Most of these events will be internal with one being hosted here, on the Infinite Flight Community. The internal events will each have an AAVA theme. The details for the external event are below. Join to find out more!
Dallas Fort Worth International Airport- KDFW
Constructed in 1974, Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport is the primary international airport serving the Dallas Fort Worth metroplex area in Texas. Also known as DFW, it’s the largest hub for American Airlines serving more than 500,000 passengers daily and over 200 million annually.
Nearly 30% of our pilots call Dallas home and the airport is responsible for roughly 40% of all flights logged.

We are excited to announce that this event will feature ATC coverage, provided by the wonderful IFATC team! Certain AA hub airports will also have ATC, an added bonus for those of you flying from DFW to another AA hub! This means that the event procedures will be under the control of ATC. Ghosting will be enforced, so we ask that all pilots are on their best behavior. The airport will be very busy, so we recommend you pack extra fuel in case of long taxi times. If an outsider pilot spawns into your assigned gate, please wait for them to pushback/leave before spawning in, and do not take a different gate. A PM will be sent to all event participants before the event, any questions can be asked there.
American Virtual offers one of the most diverse and colossal routes network in the virtual airline community. This allows our pilots to enjoy a number of eye catching routes, including seasonal ones!
You’re free to choose any American Airlines route so long as said route departs from Dallas–Fort Worth. Choose wisely and enjoy! Please keep in mind that DFW has a limited number of heavy gates.

A message from our President:
“It’s been an extremely successful year for American Virtual. In the past year, we’ve recruited a roster of over 100 pilots, logged over 6,100 flights and 30,000 hours, formed meaningful and fun partnerships with 6 other Virtual Airlines, co-founded the OneWorld Virtual Alliance, and cultivated a welcoming and active community in Slack. We’ve continuously innovated to bring our pilots the best in flight logging technology, utilizing systems such as Airtable and our AmericanCrew Crew Center. Our route network has expanded to an astounding 2,300+ routes, including 400+ routes brought to us by our codeshare partners, and we maintain a fleet of 24 individual aircraft types in 50 liveries. Amazing friendships and community spirit have blossomed before our eyes. Myself and the entire AAVA staff team are proud to have created such a successful and vibrant virtual airline, and we’re looking forward to the years to come!”
