Since Dec. 26, 2016, Delta Virtual has been at the forefront of the Virtual Airlines Community on Infinite Flight. We pride ourselves on being more than just another VA, and being a community that is closer to a family. With group flights, events, partnerships, codeshares, and more, we bring IF pilots to places all around the world.

What makes Delta Virtual stand out is its innovation of the DLVA Pilot Academy, led by real-world pilots, as well as countless support within its Board of Directors, Support Staff, and community to uphold the highest standard within the Infinite Flight Community.

Delta Virtual is a proud member of the Sky Team Virtual Group.

Board of Directors

Delta Virtual is unique, in which no single user serves as a CEO, instead, powers are shared between a Board of Directors with members that have been a part of the VA for no less than two years in their position.

Hub Captain

Hub Captains are a member of our DLVA Staff teams in terms of the IFVARB and are an instrumental role in helping in the day-to-day operations of the VA. Hub Captains lead their respective hubs, help welcome new members to their ranks, review pireps, and help train new members alongside the support of our Pilot Academy.

Route Managers

Delta Virtual has one of the most complex route systems within the Infinite Flight world. The route system was custom built and manually inputted by a team led by @CarlosFunes, and developed by @mwe2187

Our Route Managers make monthly reviews of DLVA routes based on hub assignments, and work to make sure all regular routes, and codeshares are available with updated aircraft and information from around the world based on the real-world Delta website. If you can book it on Delta dot com, you can find it at DLVA!

Members of our Route Manager team are considered support, and not staff members of the VA.

Summary

The Delta Virtual Event Team is a group of individuals that assists in the creation of both internal and IFC events for the VA.

DLVA prides itself on having on average, two events per week running back the last four years.

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!

Delta Charters

charters

Taking advantage of the history of Delta Airlines, Northwest Airlines, and our Sky Team Partners, DLVA features an enhanced charter system that allows the use of both legacy aircraft, and aircraft used for charters in the real world.

Delta Private Jets

dpj

Based out of Cincinnati, Delta has provided executive flyers the opportunity to fly around the world in private jet aircraft. Using this feature, DLVA has incorporated the Challenger 350 into its fleet for DPJ flights!

Delta Pilot Academy

Officially launched in 2018, the DLVA Pilot Academy has become a staple for our new and existing pilots alike. With the goal of making all of our pilots the absolute best in IF, our PA team of real-world pilots and IFATC specialists will teach you every subtle nuance of flying that you could possibly ask for. With our curriculum, we’ll ensure that you receive all of the knowledge needed to become an expert in no time.

Delta Career Mode

Coming to the VA in summer of 2019, the DLVA Career Mode took flying to the next level with a first-of-its-kind way to fly on Infinite Flight.

Powered by story lines, VA Pilots that have reached the level of captain or higher are challenged with a 30-flight story line that takes them through a two-week journey on IF. From Gol Airlines in the first release, to Air France in the second, Career Mode has been an exciting feature that brings the VA together around the world.

That’s right IFC! Delta Virtual is back with its 2024 thread as we continue to upgrade the behind-the-scenes look of DLVA!

We’ve just launched our brand new crew center brought to us by Flare and have completed migration to the new CC! With that in mind, we have re-opened our applications for new pilots and look forward to new cadets joining the skies with us!

We are looking forward to our @IFVARB showcase taking place in February and can’t wait to see everyone there!
