Our Mission
Delta Virtual strives to uphold the highest standards of the Infinite Flight Community, the IFVARB, and our pilots. We encourage our community to be active members of the IFC, to create an environment of enjoyment, kindness and professionalism. DLVA is also active in pilot training, to promote learning and to promote growth in each individual.

Our Vision
To be leaders in aviation with service through punctuality, friendliness, and professionalism.

Our Foundation
We were officially recognized as a certified Virtual Airline by the IFVARB on December 26, 2016 under the guidance of our former CEO, @USA007 from the Infinite Flight Community. In over two years 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.

Our Team - The DLVA Board of Directors
Upon the founders departure from the DLVA Staff, the team decided that the Virtual Airline would be led by a team of staff, all holding equal power to direct DLVA in the best interest of the pilots and in the Infinite Flight Community. Taking the foundation and running with it, the DLVA BoD have helped the VA soar with the most routes, the most features, and the best website on Infinite Flight.

DLVA Support Staff

Hub Captains

The DLVA Hub Captain team is the heartbeat of our route database. This team researches and provides information about our routes to keep us the most up-to-date with HubReps being submitted on aircraft changes, route additions and cancellations, and more! The team has been instrumental in providing support to our site through various other projects such as medallions.

DLVA Event Team

The newest level of support from Delta Virtual, the DLVA Event Team was created in August of 2019. The Event Team is responsible for helping change the way that DLVA brings events to the Infinite Flight Community with new series, new flights, and more to help spread the image of DLVA to IF. We look forward to the impact that this team will have on the VA world!

What makes DLVA fly above the rest?

DLVA Medallions

A state-of-the-art feature brought to DLVA by @Twocflyer, the DLVA Medallion system rewards pilots for accomplishing achievements within DLVA.

  • Silver: Fly to or from every Delta VA Hub
  • Gold: Fly 250 valid flight hours
  • Platinum: Complete all routes from a Delta VA Hub
  • Diamond: Complete 1,000 valid flights flown
  • Delta 360: Complete all flights in the DLVA Database (Regular and Delta + Routes). All flights must be valid.
Delta +

Introduced in Summer 2018, Delta Virtual released the newest part of its Route Database.

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!

DLVA Pilot Academy

Officially launched this year, 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.

DLVA 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.

DLVA Event System

Unlike anything on Infinite Flight, the DLVA Event system takes planning to the next level with an automatic gate assignment system, check in system, and custom flight messages for our pilots!

Pilots just have to sign up to open events on our site, check in, and they’ll be assigned a gate for DLVA events!

Our Ranking System
Keeping things simple! The DLVA ranking system is a simple system to understand that features route types, rather than aircraft to fly. The first to switch to a real-life ranking system, DLVA helps open up the world as pilots earn their way to longer routes with the VA.

So happy to be apart of this wonderful VA. The community within this VA is outstanding, and also is a place to meet new pilots. The routes available to fly within DLVA are way more than I can count. The staff here are great, they are excellent people to know. There are several events every month pilots of any rank can attend. We have our very own website, and it seriously is the best one I’ve seen over the other ones. I’ve been here for almost a year, and I have to say the community has greatly brought out my personality and strengthened it massively. If you are thinking of joining DLVA be prepared for an exciting journey! Hope to see you soon!
