Capital Virtual Airlines- The Newest IFVA
Hello To All! My name is @CaptainDwyer, and I am pleased to introduce the newest Virtual Airline to the Infinite Flight Community. I created this VA to be a fun home away from home. A place for Pilots to grow, learn and experience a community like no other. There is no better time to join CVA than now, as we will be offering double hours to Pilots that sign up and fly with us in the first week.
"The Idea to create a new virtual airline came up when I first joined the community back in February (I know, I know… I’m pretty new!). I had no idea that the community was this vast and had this many dimensions to it. I saw all of the VA’s and thought to myself, what a wonderful idea. Being the naturally leader oriented person that I am, I looked around. No staff positions open. I had an Airline Tycoon, named Capital Airlines on my phone, so I figured… I am going to start a VA.
Getting it started was not easy, and let me be the first to say, that creating a VA is no piece of cake. It took days and weeks of me working by myself on developing the ideas and creating a website. It wasn’t until I got Capt. Alex on board that development really got going.
First were the ideas. We had to iron out all of the ideas, and we had to ask ourselves, what do we really want this VA to become. Once we had our core values set in place, we started on the websites. First was the public site, then the database. The part that took the most time, was the flight submission organizer, then the routes. It took many days to have the website up-running and looking good.
Lastly was the editing. @BluePanda900 helped us through every step of the way, suggesting edits, and helping us fix bugs that really needed to be fixed. We were officially approved on March 28th of 2018
It was a great experience creating a VA, and I look forward to a long and prosperous run!"
What We Fly
We fly a variety of aircraft all over the world. Certain aircraft can be flown by certain ranks.
- Airbus A319
- Airbus A320
- Boeing 737-7
- Boeing 737-8
- Boeing 757-2
- Boeing 777-300
- Boeing 787-8
- McDonnell Douglas MD-11
Of course, planes will be added to the fleet as the Airline expands, and not only will aircraft be added, but they will be added by the Pilots of the Airline. Every month or couple of months, we will take a community vote on the next plane to be added to the fleet, so there is a great future ahead in this fleet!
Where We Fly
Capital Virtual Airlines is the only airline to have hubs in three continents. We allow our pilots to fly out of a hub near their home. We fly short, medium, long and ultra long haul routes from all of our hubs. Our hubs are as such:
- Dallas/Forth Worth- American Hub (KDFW)
- Zurich-Flughafen- Europe Hub (LSZH)
- Auckland- Oceania/Australia Hub (NZAA)
Capital also works with Pilots who cannot fly out of the hubs either. We offer a policy that deems that you can fly between any two airports serviced by our hub.
ex: KDFW-KABQ and KDFW-KDEN are normal routes, but you can fly from KABQ to KDEN
These are called charter routes.
Here at CVA, the route submission is easy, just fill out a form that requires a few details on the flight and we will collect and update your hours on our Public Log, which allows everyone to see how many hours you’ve flown. We are very lenient on hour submission, but this is a privilege, and any Pilot found to be falsifying flight hours will be terminated from their job immediately.
Our Staff (One Position Open)
There is so much work here at CVA, that the staff positions are endless. Currently, all staff positions are full, but the community will be notified as soon as one is open. You can be a Pilot, and be on staff. Staff Members can enjoy custom Discord Servers and Unlimited Posting Privileges on GC.

Our Internal Education
As stated once before, our goal is to educate Pilots all around the globe, most importantly the ones within our Airline. That is why we offer HCS Course (Higher Class Specification Courses). Our instructors will help train Pilots in 1 of our 5 courses offered by the Airline. The Pilot will have to complete certain courses to fly certain aircraft. For every course there is a list of requirements needed to be completed before completing the course. Many of the guidelines regarding our HCS Courses are not very strict, as these courses are optional (with the exception of the 777 and 787, Heavies and Supers Course) and exist solely to educate the community. You can sign up for these on our Database in Google Classroom.
Our biggest goal at CVA, is to foster a community like no other. The company offers a system that not a single VA offers. We offer a Google Classroom where public pilot logs that help you track and monitor your progress are posted. You will be given a code to join the google classroom once you have officially joined the airline.
The Community pages on our website will always be kept up to date, so you will always know, what’s coming up next.
Our biggest goals are to host events every other Saturday, if not every Saturday. This will give our pilots and community members plenty of opportunities to get involved. Many of our events will have a theme to enjoy. All of our events will be staffed with air traffic control (assuming that one is available that day) and will hopefully gather members from all over!
Moving forward we hope to provide more resources to our pilots such as a full book of airport diagrams of all of the airports that we service around the world. We also provide flight logs, and flight checklists to help you in anyway possible.
