At Garuda Indonesia Virtual, we aim to provide the best virtual flight sim experience for our pilots, providing a route network of over 400 routes. These consist partly of Garuda Indonesia Routes, but also include Citilink, Codeshare and Heritage Routes, using our MD-11. Additionally, we offer Flash Flights with staff members, weekly Skyteam Routes of the Week and events in partnership with Blaze Event Group.

Garuda Indonesia Virtual Group was originally founded in 2019 as Garuda Indonesia Virtual Airlines. Our founder, @Ozzy wanted to bring more attention to the Asian market, as at the time most Virtual Airlines were based in Europe and the US. Since then, Garuda Indonesia has turned into a small, but growing, virtual community. Eventually, after Ozzy decided to hand off his position, @Matt777 took over the CEO position. Most recently, we changed our name from Garuda Indonesia Virtual Airlines (GAVA) to Garuda Indonesia Virtual Group (GVG), as Citilink has become a part of our Virtual Group. Mid May 2022 @Sean_McCormack decided to relinquish his position as CEO and delegate the new CEO position to @Syncline. GVG continues to grow to compete with other VA positions on Asian, improving and continuing to improve several new programs. Now, @Syncline’s leadership has been replaced by Sabrina Humaira (@Humai-Girl).

At Garuda Indonesia Virtual Group, we offer an extensive route network of over 500 routes. These range from short-haul domestic routes all the way to long haul routes, like Jakarta to Amsterdam. Additionally, we offer over 200 codeshare routes as well as an extensive Heritage Programme using our Retro Aircraft, the MD-11. Recently, we included Citilink, a Garuda Indonesia subsidiary in real life, into our operations, currently making up for about 70 routes. Check out our full Route Database here.


Garuda Indonesia Xplore & Citilink ATR72-600

Route ATR72-600 Temporarily replaced by Dash 8-Q400, where their route will take us to rural destinations such as Gunung Sitoli, Purbalingga, Jember, etc.

Garuda CRJ-1000 - PK-GRE

With two active aircraft in the fleet, the Bombardier CRJ-1000 doesn’t play a big role in Garuda Indonesia’s operations. However, there are 16 aircraft currently parked, allowing Garuda to increase the total fleet size to 18. PK-GRE is one of the 16 aircraft currently parked, however, we continue to use the airframe in the virtual skies. Being able to carry 96 passengers, the CRJX perfectly fits some of the smaller and less busy routes in our database.

Garuda CRJ-1000 - PK-GRA

Showcasing Garuda Indonesia’s Skyteam membership, PK-GRA is always a beautiful livery to spot. Although it is parked in real life, we won’t keep you from using these stunning colours in the virtual skies.

Garuda B737-800 - PK-GMR

The Boeing 737-800 is the backbone of the Garuda Indonesia Fleet. With 18 currently in service, it is the most present aircraft in the fleet, however, it was once at 51 airframes that were in operation, which means that 33 aircraft are currently in storage. PK-GMR is active in real life and just as active in our fleet, accounting for most of our PIREPs filed. Carrying 174 passengers, it is popular on busy domestic routes as well as international routes, being able to fly as far as Australia and Thailand.

Garuda A330-300 - Generic

Unfortunately, our Airbus A330-300 livery got removed with the 21.4 updates, however, we will continue to use the Airbus A330-300 in the Generic livery. With six aircraft currently in operation and a further five in storage, the A330-300 plays a vital role in Garuda Indonesia’s widebody operations.

Garuda A330-900neo - PK-GHE

Being the newest aircraft in our fleet, the Airbus A330-900neo is truly impressive, with it’s beautiful livery and “glasses”. With currently one in operation and two parked, it doesn’t play a huge role in our operations yet, however there are a further three on order, so a total of six aircraft should eventually arrive at Garuda Indonesia.

Garuda B777-300ER - PK-GIA

The largest aircraft in our fleet, the Boeing 777-300ER operates on international long haul routes like the longest route in our database, Jakarta to Amsterdam. With four currently in operation and a further six in storage, the 777 may not be a big fleet in size, but it is definitely an important aircraft in our fleet.

Garuda MD-11 - PK-GIJ

The McDonnell Douglas MD-11 is our Retro aircraft. Operating solely on our Heritage program, it covers mostly multi-stop routes from Indonesia to Europe and North America. All of these routes were once operated in real life when the MD-11 was in the Garuda Indonesia fleet and now we make them available to our highest ranks.

Citilink A320-200 - PK-GQU

Airbus A320 is the most important member of Citilinks fleet. Although it will eventually be replaced by the newer Airbus A320neo, we will still see Citilink operate the CEO (Current Engine Options) for a lot of years to come.

Citilink A330-900neo - PK-GYA

With our small fleet of Citilink A330neos we operate for Reguler Routes souch as Batam, Solo, Denpasar, etc. And some interesting Charter Flights, for example to China or the US.


Skyteam Virtual Alliance

Skyteam Virtual Alliance Tail


Skyteam Alliance, founded in August of 2018 by Air France-KLM and Delta Virtual. Skyteam has been the dream of the leadership of the two Virtual Airlines since the conception of Infinite Flight’s Global Update in 2017 and has grown to include six great VA’s on Infinite Flight. The Skyteam Alliance has flourished behind the scenes with the integration of AF-KLM and DLVA into a centralized Discord, with new Sky Team VA’s joining the force.
Behind the backing of our partnership, Sky Team continues the longest route agreement between VA’s for weekly routes posted based on the IFATC schedule. Garuda Indonesia is part of Skyteam Virtual, bringing weekly Routes of the Week as well as Friday Night Flight Routes including a special 1.5x Flight Time Bonus to our pilots.

6464683b95e6eGVG-LOGO New Era For GVG Operational! 6464683b95e6eGVG-LOGO

Welcome to GVG Thread

After being preoccupied with a major staff change over past 2 weeks, Yes! Garuda Indonesia Virtual Group is now operating with a new face, we congratulate @Humai-Girl (Icha) who has been trusted by @Syncline (Ricky) as new CEO, we hope that GVG will move forward in Icha’s leadership.

After 2 Weeks We walked. Allow us to present what we have developed and updated through our Official Thread.

6464683b95e6eGVG-LOGO Staff Position Changes 6464683b95e6eGVG-LOGO

Staff have an important role in operation of Virtual Airlines, therefore GVG requires staff so that VA can run well, as well all staff who can coordinate. During restructuring, GVG also appointed @AviatorGan as new COO, a new Pirep Manager who have an important role in managing Flight Log namely @JO_AVIATION and @Malaysian_Aviation as his assistants. Last, the staff who have an important role in managing the Social Media that GVG has, namely Media Manager, they are @Shelgon and @Seqtiiii. For information, they are both very unique staff because they have the same name in IRL, Bima Suryatama & Bima Sakti, we hope they can work together in carrying out their duties!

The rest we rely on staff who did not resign during the Restructuring. Of course we all hope for the best.

6464683b95e6eGVG-LOGO New Rank Structure 6464683b95e6eGVG-LOGO

Apart from Staff, GVG also renews and develops Rank Structures, Rank Structures are also important in VA, because Ranks can be likened to Missions that must be achieved by pilots. With many more Missions, of course Pilots will be more challenged and have high enthusiasm to be active.

Some of Ranks we have developed are:

Sancaka

Turangga

Dwipangga

Gajayana

Brawijaya

All Ranks certainly get attractive benefits. We have described all these benefits in our thread above.

6464683b95e6eGVG-LOGO New Operating Aircraft 6464683b95e6eGVG-LOGO

We also started operating ATR 72-600 Routes which were replaced by Dash 8-Q400 at IF. We operate this route to strengthen our connection to the smallest city with a predetermined HUB. In IRL, Currently ATR 72-600 is only owned by Citilink. In the past, Garuda Indonesia also had this aircraft, which was operated by Garuda Indonesia Explore.

Some city flown by this plane: Sibolga, Meulaboh, Muara Bungo, Sumenep, Purbalingga, Jember, Ende, Tana Toraja, Nabire, etc. Details can be seen in our Route Table here.

6464683b95e6eGVG-LOGO New Website & Crew Center 6464683b95e6eGVG-LOGO

Websites

GVG Crew Center's Look

Well, this is what we think is a Vital Object that we just released today, Brand New GVG Websites!

GVG Website now comes with an attractive and colorful appearance. Various complete information can be seen in this Crew Center. We provide information for Ranks, Staff, Routes, Pilots, and others that we think are considered by Prospective Pilots before joining.

Please visit our website to see more.

Crew Center

Crew Center's Home Page

The Crew Center is place where Pilots record their flights after flying with GVG. The appearance of new Crew Center is now very attractive and colorful. We have also just added an Welcoming Music feature to our Crew Center to make it look even more attractive.

6464683b95e6eGVG-LOGO New Pirep Systems (Auto Pirep) 6464683b95e6eGVG-LOGO

Auto Pirep Button

Screenshot (22)

Starting today GVG officially implemented a more Modern way to fill Pireps, Auto-Pireps, is the latest method we implemented to make it easier for Pilots to fill Pireps after flying. This method is very easy because we only need to select the button and the System will automatically issue the Flight Time and Route by itself.

Auto Pirep works by taking Pilot Data while flying with Automatic. Flight Time, Routes will be captured by system after pressing the available buttons. later Pilots who use this method don’t need to send Screenshot Evidence because it has been guaranteed to be correct by system. Unlike the Pirep Manual, which requires pilots to send screenshots as proof of flight.

6464683b95e6eGVG-LOGO Update Flight Log Notification on Discord and Pirep Validation 6464683b95e6eGVG-LOGO

GVG has also updated the Pirep Notification System that comes in from the Pilot to make it appear more attractive, one of which is by automatically adding information on the Origin and Destination Airports.

Notification For Manual Pirep

Notification For Auto Pirep

And GVG also added Pirep Tracker feature, Pilots can see their Pirep status via Discord, whether their Pirep is accepted or rejected.

6464683b95e6eGVG-LOGO Closing 6464683b95e6eGVG-LOGO

GVG way not be the biggest VA one out there, but the small community we have was always enough. Currently we have 62 Pilots, of which a few have existed since GVG was still called GAVA when Ricky still as CEO. We hope that GVG will have more and more fans in the future. The more pilots that join, the more we make changes and always think of creative ideas to move forward.
