As many know, El Al Virtual strives for the best and only the best. We make changes and adjustments as frequently as possible to both keep interest for our pilots and to optimize things for maximum efficiency. Take a look below to see everything that we are releasing now!

New Website and Integrated Crew Center

After several trials and errors, we are beyond proud to unveil a brand new website and crew center, featuring everything our pilots will ever need!

Lower Activity Requirements

As the summer comes to an end and life picks back up, more important things come into play. For that reason, we have decided to lower the activity requirements to a minimum of one flight per month.

Brand New Pilot Guide

Although our old Pilot Handbook was sufficient, we decided to make a brand new packet that has consolidated the information and make it more appealing. Feel free to check it out here!

El Al Executive

After reaching the rank of Senior Captain, the El Al Executive program grants you the ability to fly to or from any airport on the planet with the TBM 930 or Citation X. Every two weeks, pilots can choose to fly three total legs. Our only rule is that they must either start from or end at LLBG.

About Us

Founded on May 6, 2020, El Al Virtual was established based upon our CEO’s dedication to his heritage. Knowing that both the airline and country don’t get much love, he knew something had to be done. Constantly putting in work day after day to exceed perfection, El Al Virtual officially became IFVARB Approved on June 1, 2020.

Within Infinite Flight there are many Virtual Airlines to choose from. Finding one you can count on and build a relationship with in the long term is a difficult task, however we have simplified that for you. Here are some reasons as to why you have made the best decision by choosing us!

Our Approach

As the only Israeli VA in Infinite Flight, it is our goal to represent what we have to offer. Some may take it that our country and airline are small compared to places like the U.S. with 3 mainline carriers, however we have just as much to offer, if not more. The pride we take in representing Israel is outstanding. Seeing our flag on the tail of our aircraft soaring at 34,000 feet is something no other airline could say, well unless you’re flying El Al of course!


What makes El Al a truly professional environment is the test we put all potential pilots through. Each applicant will go through an initial application where our CEO reviews each aspect of the application one by one. If said applicant is approved, they are sent our pilot exam, a twenty question test that our CEO has designed with questions that only an experienced pilot would know. Once there, the applicant must achieve a certain percentage to pass and start their career with El Al Virtual. If one passes, it doesn’t end there. Staff members constantly make sure that each pilot is made fit for the role and will be provided as much support as needed to thrive in El Al Virtual.

Our trained and well-rounded staff are here to support you and help you with anything around the clock. Whether you send an inquiry via our email or PM us on the IFC, you are guaranteed a response within 24 hours!
