Welcome to Qantas Virtual Group, Infinite Flight’s first and longest operating Virtual Airline. Ever since our founding in 2012, we have worked hard to provide the best Virtual Airline Experience possible for all of our pilots, and the wider community. Community has always been a big part of our ethos here at QVG, and we work hard each and every day to ensure that all of our pilots feel welcome, and empowered to follow their passion of flying.

When I joined the Virtual Airline 3 years ago, I never thought I’d see myself standing in the position I am today, but needless to say I am very grateful that I have the opportunity to lead this amazing airline into the foreseeable future.

I’m really pleased to say that there has never been a more exciting time for the Virtual Airline. We have recently migrated to a brand new custom Crew Centre, introduced a Career Mode option and developed a multitude of training resources, so I encourage everybody to check out QVG. We are an ever-growing community of welcoming aviators, and we’d love to have you!

See you in the skies ✈️

CEO at Qantas Virtual Group

Career Mode

For one of Infinite Flight’s most realistic Virtual Airline Experiences, join QVG’s unique Career Mode. Follow realistic procedures, complete type rating courses and become virtually certified on an aircraft. This mode is ideal for those with more experience who are looking for the opportunity to follow the path of a real-world pilot. Our emphasis on training is particularly prevalent in Career Mode, which will go hand-in-hand with our soon-to-be-released QAcademy. In order to begin QVG’s Career Mode, you must be a pilot with us.

Career Mode can be joined after registering as a pilot.

Free Mode

Enjoy the classic Virtual Airline experience with our long-running Free Mode. Fly where you want, when you want, and unlock more of our fleet as you rank up. Our free mode allows you to choose your own flying adventure, with little restriction on when or where you can fly. This mode is ideal for anybody new to Infinite Flight, or pilots looking to enjoy the classic Virtual Airline community experience.

Begin your Free Mode Journey


Earlier this year we released our brand new Crew Centre system, allowing pilots to easily search, fly and file over 3,000 routes. Easily find out about events and group flights with our Events Noticeboard, generate your custom QVG Profile Badge or access our wide variety of training videos and documents. We are also pleased to have partnered with SimBrief to allow our pilots to generate Infinite Flight-compatible flight plans right from the Crew Centre. It’s never been easier to get flying!

Here at QVG, we believe that training is one of the greatest ways to help our pilots grow their passion for Infinite Flight. We are developing a number of training courses that pilots will be able to ‘subscribe’ to - these will involve both theoretical and practical demonstrations, as well as practice flights with our Mentoring team. Our brand new, state-of-the-art QAcademy website will be at the centre of this new training program. Pilots will be able to access all the resources they need to improve their flying.

Note: QAcademy is still a work in progress, and will be released later this year.

Absolutely lovely topic, I don’t think any VA will ever be able to compare to Qantas Virtual Group, especially staying strong for 8 years. Can’t wait to see what the future holds for Qantas Virtual Group.

Yeah, I am proud to be a Senior First Officer at my favourite VA. I love to see the future of QVG, especially the career mode which make QVG unique. Thanks for accepting me, it’s been a wonderful experience. Also I’d like to thank the fantastic staff, especially the founder @Josh for being an amazing help since I started at QVG. Everyone is friendly, it’s a great VA to be apart of and I highly recommend as a pilot to join.

Great Job with this thread! I wish I could join but I don’t want to overwhelm myself with 15 VA’s!

@SahyaQFFlyer @Qantas094 We couldn’t have done it without the help of all of our dedicated pilots and staff.
Thanks for your support!

If this is the new thread, it’s great! I’d be willing to bet I’m the only Alaskan to be a pilot for QVG 😂

Great to see QVG going strong. I was QFA0014 and was one of the early staff and pilots. Sadly not been able to maintain the time recently due to various real life constraints, but Qantas Virtual is the first and best VA in IF. Happy landings all!

Yes indeed, most of our pilots come from Australia, Great Britain, America and some from the middle eastern countries. It would be a pleasure to have you with us!
