Virtual Airlines (VA) or Virtual Organizations (VO) were made to increase the realism while playing the best mobile flight simulator.
A virtual organization (VO) is a dedicated hobby organization that uses the Infinite Flight Simulator to model the real-world operations of an airline or group. Alternatively, the group may be an original one. This can include “ground school” training programs, event groups, flying clubs, and ATC groups as well as training flights in order for the VA to help provide further experience as well as to extend the skills of their members
Choosing a Virtual Airlines or Virtual Organization totally depends upon the choice of the pilot. Aspirants can have a look at IFVARB website for the list off all current and upcoming VA/VO. You can also have a look at the official thread of any VA/VO at the community forum. All of them are really attractive in order to attract pilots. Choosing a single VA/VO can be really difficult sometimes as all of them are really lucrative to pilots.
There is no restrictions on how many VA/VO you can be a part of at one time. The number varies depending on how active you are on Infinite Flight. It is because every VA/VO has it’s criteria (generally flying once or twice a month). If you don’t follow these criteria, you can be removed from the VA/VO. Also flying for multiple VA require a lot of dedication.
Give your maximum participation in events. Generally events are scheduled so that everyone can fly (looking upon public holidays). Participating in events is a great feeling. Everybody loves flying with 15-30 pilots and clicking amazing screenshots with them :)
Schedule your flights. This tip can increases you realism as well as real life discipline. Plan your flights for the week on a Sunday night. Planning and doing last minute flights are really unprofessional and sometime creates errors during your flight. Personally speaking, this helped me a lot in my time management as well as getting more flying experience.
Filling up the PIREPS - If your VA/VO requires you to file PIREPS after every flight, please file the PIREPS just after the flight. Filling it late or some days after the flight is very unprofessional and sometimes irritating for the VA/VO as they can’t keep the track of the flights for long.
Activity during the flight - Be active enough
that you don’t get violated during the flight. In case you get a violation by an ATC or show any unprofessional attitude during flight, VA/VO can remove you anytime.
Be active on the communication app. Slack and Discord are the majorly used communication apps by any VA/VO. You can get many important info if you are active in them.
Be a Staff - After getting a good amount of experience with the VA/VO, apply for staff position (if available). This will be a good opportunity to give back the VA/VO what you have got from them.
Never cheat - I have seen several pilots who cheat during the entrance test but fail when they give their practical test. This creates you first impression a bad impression in the VA/VO.
VA/VO are a really good opportunities to get an experience of IRL pilot virtually. Also, Infinite Flight being the best mobile flight simulator with a huge community and a human ATC feature, it is really an honor to be part of any VA/VO. Just be honest to them and you will get the best out of them. Loyalty and professionalism are the major criteria to get best out of any VA/VO.
Hope this helped you. Thanks for reading.
