IFVARB Feedback And Questions Thread

Can I ask what this “new rule” is? If its causing smaller VAs to suffer then it might be harder than I thought for my VO to start the application process.

It allows you to be in staff in one va but if you resign you have to wait 90 days

The new cool down rule is made by the IFVARB as they want to ensure all VAs and VOs to be at a high quality.

Don’t be nervous about starting your VO just make sure your dedicated

Yes. That rule was introduced in order to help smaller VAs. Not hurt them. Where are you getting this hurt thing from?

Read about it here.

When the policy was put in place smaller va’s staff members that was staff in bigger va’s which cause them to resign

Once again, this ensures that the staff are able to focus on one VA/VO and be able to produce more quality work.


Yes. There’s a chance that could have happened. But look forward with new members you bring on board. When they join, they won’t want to just leave because they would have to wait 90 days to join a new VA. It’s actually helping you more then anything

I do believe it was created for a good cause

It just wasn’t executed since it was so quick

Hey Bro message me

Well, I’m pretty sure IFVARB has a database of the staff members and CEOs.

I see what you mean by smaller VAs having staff in bigger VAs. I think that the policy is good as of now. However, if you have a shortage of staff in smaller VAs, don’t be shy to:

  • Request staff on the Prospective Staff Thread
  • Don’t be afraid to DM some people. However, don’t send mass DMs and have a background check on the people you’d like to bring in your VA.

I think it’s just pilot shortage for va’s as a whole , and we all that’s apart of the ifvarb va community new to reach those who haven’t join yet

I not sure if anyone has said this, but we need, if not more, but some non pro sub VAs out there. It would make it more fun especially for the people who cant afford pro. You could chat via discord still. We just need it…

From what I’ve observed, many VA/VO are still getting plenty of applications. It’s important that VA’s stand out for potential new pilots.

That’s called a chat group and not a VA, I’m afraid that’s not really something we deal with.


I think another possible solution could be joining a VA which flies in the non-pro regions. An example would be an airline that serves inter-California flights as non-subscribers can fly within that area, with aircraft like the 737 and A321!

What californian region VAs are there

I wouldn’t see the point of having a Virtual Airline/Organisation for non-pro members.

  • First off, your pilots would be limited to what and where they’re able to fly
  • They won’t have access to the live servers so events wouldn’t be able to happen
  • They wouldn’t be eligible to partner with other VA/VO’s as it would be a bit pointless if you can’t fly with anyone, access certain aircraft or worldwide destinations.
  • They would only be able to fly in the solo mode, (By themselves).
  • If you were to start a VA/VO with a number of pilots who don’t have subscriptions, it sounds more of a flying group rather then a Virtual Organisation/Airline.

I’m not trying to poke the bear, sound rude or harshly criticise in what I’ve said above, I just don’t see the point of this one. I’m not saying I don’t like the idea, but I just don’t think this needs to go through the IFVARB.

I do agree with these new IFVARB rules and they were needed as the community continues to grow.

  • Before these new rules were emplaced, it would be difficult for some VA/VO’s to hire staff who are committed to a VA/VO, as many would-be enrolled in two or more roles and weren’t performing the best. Starting a VA/VO is very hard work, it can be difficult to succeed when your team has multiple roles and comes & goes when pleases.

  • In actual fact, I do think this will help small VA/VO’s. When looking for a team of staff you would want dedicated, passionate staff members. However, with this rule being emplaced you won’t have staff come & go. You’ll find dedicated and passionate staff who’ll put effort into your VA/VO. From this, if you’re backed by a great team who puts the work in (including CEO’s) your VA/VO is most likely to succeed.

I do apologies if I went overboard with this,

You just have to look for which aircraft we have in the app, and what airlines have VAs! There are also quite a few other regions so you could look at those too.
