A proud member of the Infinite Flight Community
Welcome to Delta Virtual and our IFC Recruitment Thread! We thank you for taking your time to consider Delta VA as your home in the skies. We have a thriving community of great pilots that has been widely recognized as one of the top virtual airlines within the IFC as well as the flight sim community. Here at Delta VA (DLVA), our goal is to allow our pilots to experience a community of fellow Delta Airlines lovers to fly the Delta fleet on the Mobile Flight Simulator, Infinite Flight.
We were officially recognized as a certified Virtual Airline by the IFVARB on Dec. 26, 2016 under the guidance of our former CEO, @anon2063420. In nearly a year of service, we have grown to be one of the largest VA’s on Infinite Flight. This number does not come without quality as we hold a very high standard of professionalism both on the IFC, the VA Community and on the IF Live Servers.
From the heart of operations at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport (KATL) in Atlanta, Ga., to Narita International Airport (RJAA), DLVA takes you around the world between 14 different real-world hubs based on Delta Airlines. Between our hub-to-hub flights and flights from locations around the world, we offer our pilots more than 1,200 flights created to simulate realism. Our route database has been customized to mirror Delta as closely as possible, with aircraft selection for routes based on the real-life route database, including a future addition of multiple aircraft available on each route to increase realism.

Introducing Delta +
Coming Summer 2018, Delta Virtual is proud to introduce the newest route system as we prepare for the biggest upgrade to our control system in DLVA history (on the horizon).
Delta + expands the Delta Virtual route database to encompass the world and give our pilots the ability to take advantage of ALL routes that are available to Delta Airlines. This includes opening our database to the Sky Team Codeshares that include Air France, KLM, China Southern, Virgin Australia and Korean Airlines to name a few! Stay tuned to Delta Virtual as we release this exciting new route database to our pilots!
Delta VA has put together one of the most well equipped staff teams to run our daily operations. We do not have a set CEO which means we run Delta VA as a Board of Directors. Our board is active daily and are always available to answer any questions you may have and provide guidance. Take a look below at our upper management!

Partnerships and Co-Sponsored Events
At DLVA, we currently are not entering into VA partnerships or codeshares. While we appreciate you thinking of us for such, please understand that this decision is for the best interest of Delta Virtual.
Our team is happy to work with other VA’s or VO’s in co-branded events and having our members attend events within the IFC. We have had great success with our Sky Team series of events with AF-KLM, and our staff and pilots alike enjoy collaborating with others as much as we can.

On these routes you can fly aircraft in the liveries of our code shared airlines. Just some examples of the code share aircraft we operate on certain routes:
