Dear forum pilots and staff,

Frontier Virtual Airlines has remained a true legacy carrier for jet under 2 years as we strive to deliver family fun Aviation, assisted by our incredible animals. It is with this that we deeply regret having to make the announcement that one of our very own is leaving us fully. He has asked to make the announcement himself in Slack first before I share what he has to say, so I will respect his wishes. But please remove your hats in respect of this incredible guy who has been with the VA for a long time.


That being said, with his untimely departure, two staff positions have opened up. The following are the open staff positions with requirements that will be adhered to!

  1. Website Designer and Editor: This staff position will keep you in charge of running our website, fixing it when we ask you to, and making sure it looks nice and neat. The requirements for this post are the following: Must have had at least a minimum of 3 months of website design and editing skills. Must not be a staff at another VA. Must be willing to be active and participate in our requests.

  2. Pirep and Google Spreadsheets Assistant: This staff position is for the man who feels he can handle the Techincal side of the carrier with our google documents, PIREP information, and new user forms. All these are Google Docs, Google Word, and Google Spreadsheets. If you feel you know how to use these three, please respond below. Requirements are as follows: Must not be a staff with another VA. Must be able to use the three tools effectively and without assistance. Must comply with staff instructions.

I am interested in applying for one of these positions. How can I do so?

Please DM me with what position you want.

Thank you for our outreach and support during this time.

@Tecnam2TA has stepped down from his CO-CEO position and in his way the following incredible FVA pilots have stepped forward and been willing to take the responsibilities.
Thank you and join with me in giving Jules and @CaptainDwyer!

Hello everyone! I am excited to announce my new position and Event Coordinator at FVA!

After CVA closed, I went on a hunt for a good VA to find a home in, and let me tell you: the community here at FVA is outstanding! Everyone is very enthusiastic and the community is more active than any other VA I’ve seen before.

I will be working closely with everyone to plan fun events that will show the Frontier spirit! I looked forward to a good run here at FVA, and I thank you all for your time and consideration.

Capt. Dwyer

Event Coordinator, Frontier Virtual Airlines

Dear Forum Pilots/FDS Devs/ FVA Crew:

So this is what it feels like to look out over 2 years of accomplishments and feel not just sadness but also pride? This virtual airline has stood for family, friends, and a place where avgeeks can experience what it’s like to love together. It is with that in mind that I regret full heartedly to report…Frontier Virtual Airlines will cease to exist effective immediately! This change includes all logos, brands, aircraft rights, route systems, social media, and our forum page.

Now before you blow up our DMs let me answer some questions I know you’re thinking about.

Q Wait so what is happening to this Slack then and all the people?
A FVA will cease to exist but in its place will rise a new Aviation forum. These past few weeks FVA has almost not been a part of my life. And I know I’m not the only one. Too many of us just don’t have time to fly anymore. But we all share the love of Aviation and I know that love can keep us together.

Q So we’re still keeping the Slack?
A Yes

Q So what are we going to be called now?
A We are just going by the rebranding of “The Avgeeks Community Slack”

Q Will we be on the IFC at all?
A Negative. In fact we will be ceasing to operate in any way as an IF group. We will have a channel dedicated to Infinite Flight but it will only be a side channel.

Q What about ranks and staff? What’ll happen to that?
A Staff will remain the same just no longer bearing FVA names but now bearing our new forum names. All ranks will be deleted. You are now free to fly whatever the heck you want wherever in the world you want

Q So this is it huh? No more FVA? No more Frontier? BUT ROBERT YOU LOVE FRONTIER HOW COULD YOU?
A I love Frontier but in real life as a real life airline. It’s hard to get motivated anymore over a simulator.

Q Can we stick around and just be our normal funny selves in #offtopic-chat and all the other great channels? Nothing will change just our name and no more ranks restrictions?
A Exactly! It’s almost going to be like nothing has changed. Just enjoy your Aviation life, post weird photos in the designated channels, joke around, have fun, post awesome Aviation photos, and keep in touch with all here!

Q Will FVA Return?
A I have no doubt somewhere out there someone is waiting to rebuild this airline. But under the current leadership we do not plan on ever returning, to the forums or as an Infinite Flight branded Carrier.


This will be my last post regarding FVA. Henceforth FVA will be a thing of the past. Before I just end this bombshell of a post, I wanted to thank all of you for being your FVA best! Now let’s begin this new age with a confident stride and a smile on our faces! Aviation…here we come :airplane::sunglasses:

I truly believe no VA could ever reach what FVA had. But all good things come to an end. Thank you for your support as an FVA staff member. Now we look forward to the future.

So saddening to see such an outstanding virtual airline shut down. FVA will always hold a special spot within me. It’s forever changed my life. I’ve cherished every moment spent with my Frontier family. 🙂
