The Standard of the Infinite Flight Community
IFVARB Approved - December 26, 2016
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.
To be leaders in aviation with service through punctuality, friendliness, and professionalism.
We were officially recognized as a certified Virtual Airline by the IFVARB on December 26, 2016 under the guidance of our former CEO, @anon2063420 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.

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

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.

In addition to operating just Delta VA aircraft, some routes Delta VA has are code share routes. Delta VA only operates these routes out of our hubs, with international Hubs only having code share routes to or from North America. 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:
