We cannot wait to be holding another event with IFAE, after the great successes of previous flights and events.


We wish all members of the Infinite Flight Community a very joyous festive period, and a happy and fulfilled New Year, when it comes.

I hope you’re all enjoying the Christmas season. As we are all making final preparations and doing some last minute shopping, or starting shopping in my case, I just wanted to let you know of a couple of things regarding BAVA over the Christmas season. Firstl, and most importantly, we are staying open and will be running normally on the whole. We have a few events which we look forward to sharing with you all, including the IFAE summit!

As you all know the staff here have lives and families. Christmas is a great time for families to come together and celebrate Jesus birth. Therefore in light of this please give the staff time when applying to join BAVA. From now until the 2nd January please allow anything up to a week for your application to be processed. This does seem like a long time I know but we have to remember that people want to enjoy Christmas as well. We will strive to get things done in the fastest time, a week is a maximum and therefore only contact us after a week has passed if you have not been contacted

So please go and enjoy this wonderful time of year and have a very Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year when it comes!

Matt
President

What a Year it’s been! From meeting members at Flight Sim Show 2018 in the Hangar at RAF Cosford, to holding some huge events and even our very own Friday Night Flight, 2018 has been a year of record breaking, and certainly a one to remember fondly for BAVA. We have gained new aircraft, new pilots, new staff, new resources and had a whole lot of fun in what has been an amazing year for both BAVA and Infinite Flight. Our route network has grown exponentially, our horizons widened. Let’s take a look at some of our achievements, highlights and facts for the year of 2018…

We’ve asked some of our Pilots what they thought of us - to put it simply we’ve been overwhelmed by the appreciation and support for BAVA. Our pilots truly are the backbone of our community, and they make BAVA a welcoming, friendly and funny place for everyone to share their passions for aviation, Infinite Flight, and more.

If you’d like to read more of our testimonials from our pilots, they have been posted on our main post in this thread, or on our website.


BAVA is proud to announce its latest partnership with the newly approved @alaskavirtualairline. Our partnership consists of codeshare agreements similar to Alaska Airlines and British Airways’ real-world partnership, along with hosting joint events regularly, and a “Featured Saturday Route”, where each VA chooses a featured route from the other VAs database, and allows their pilots to fly and log that flight for that one day only. We can’t wait to see our partnership come into full fruition!
