The Infinite Flight Virtual Airline Regulatory Board

Application Process | User Watchlist | Policies | Reservation List

The Infinite Flight Virtual Airline Regulatory Board is the governing and assisting body that controls and coordinates all efforts and operations within the VA community. The Infinite Flight Virtual Airline Regulatory Board is designed and intended to enhance the VA sector of the Infinite Flight Community.

The IFVARB is intended to make VAs more professional, organized, and in line with the guidelines and standards of the community. In addition, the IFVARB helps clear up some of the clutter on the forum that certain members find inconvenient and irritating while also making the presence of Virtual Airlines clearer and more beneficial.

Our main goal is to benefit new and existing VAs that add value to the community by creating a professional, organised, and pleasant atmosphere for like-minded individuals to thrive and grow within.

IFVARB is made up of a team of volunteers, all who bring different qualities to the table. They are dedicated and passionate about improving the VA community and making it a place for individuals and organizations to thrive.

All members of the IFVARB have been specially chosen for their maturity, expertise, and experience involving VAs and the Infinite Flight Community itself. Membership on the board is on an invitation-only basis. Please do not DM members about joining the board.

How do I reserve an airline?

You are able to reserve an airline if you meet the requirements on our Apply Page in our website. It is important to meet all the requirements and provide all the information asked for in the application to successfully reserve an airline.

How can I have my positive and negative feedback heard?

The #discussions channel of the IFVARB Slack. A member will gladly respond to your questions, praise, or concerns. In addition, you can also provide feedback on our feedback and questions thread .

What if I see a VA that may not be certified?

In this case, please personal message an Admin here on the community and they will be happy to look into it for you. Please do not inquire directly on the thread as it creates unnecessary clutter.

How do I know what Admin and Leader I’ll get assigned to?

You will get an Admin and Leader assigned to your application based on the region of your VA/VO. @Danman is assigned to original VA/VOs while the others are assigned to the regions shown below.

What are the requirements for me to apply to be a CEO for my VA/VO?

The following are the requirements needed to be a Virtual Airline/Organization CEO:

  • Member trust level (TL2) forum account. This must be the CEO’s own account. VA specific accounts can only be made once your VA is certified.
  • Knowledge and experience of the VA community- We expect applicants to understand how the IFC VA community works and ideally know people who are a part of it. ‘Experience’ is a loose term; experience in a staff team for a VA is ideal but being part of a VA as a pilot or other member may be enough to qualify you. We will also consider applicants who may not have been apart of a VA specifically but have a good forum presence and/or have been active on the forum for a long time. We will consider each applicant using their experience statement.
  • A Good level of maturity- We will assess this from your conduct when messaging IFVARB admins and staff, your general conduct on the forum, and in some cases will consult the moderation team for advice. There is no age limit, however, we can reject applicants based on their maturity alone.
  • Ensuring that it is not on the list of disallowed VAs or on the list of reserved VAs. We have been contacted by various airlines about copyright violations and asking that VA’s cease operations. The list of disallowed VA’s can be found here and the active reservations can be found here.

We are pleased to announce that we have just released our brand new website, www.IFVARB.com! Our new website was made solely to improve our application process. This means we intend that there will be no more waiting three months to start being reviewed and waiting another three months in the review process. Take a look at some of the new features down below!

Copy%20of%20IFVARB%20(1)

If you would like to reserve a Virtual Airline or Organization, you will now have to submit the application through this Apply Page. You will then get an email that contains your reservation confirmation code which you should keep private and secure. You can enter that six digit code in our new Reservation Status Page which will allow you to view the status of your reservation and view the reviews from our IFVARB Members when available. Our new website not only expedites the application process but opens the horizon for many new features! We hope everyone enjoys it and leave your feedback in our Feedback Thread here on the Community!

For those members actively liaising with an IFVARB Admin to approve their VA/VO, please check on the reservation list to ensure that your application appears on the reservation page. Also, you will get a personal message from an Administrator that contains your new reservation code which can be used to track your reservation on our Status Page. If your airline is not present on the active reservation page, please PM your region Admin for follow-up, thanks!

Introducing “Airline Of The Month”

The IFVARB is happy to announce that they will be featuring one virtual airline every month. This will mean they will be featured on our Instagram, IFC thread and will have a community fly in to a hub of their choice. So, without further ado, let’s announce our first featured airline of the month!

Virtual Airline Of The Month (May 2019)

Singapore Airlines Virtual

May’s airline of the month features an airline based out of the great country of Singapore. Singapore Virtual features a diverse fleet, lots of unique destinations and a professional environment.

Singapore Virtual’s fly in will be located at their hub (WSSS) on 2019-05-25T15:00:00Z. This means all virtual airlines choosing to participate in their fly in should arrive at the time above.

In order to sign your VA up for the event, please PM @Chris_Hoover with the airline name and the number of people you plan on bringing, so gate assignments can be planned accordingly. If you plan to go as a singular individual without any VA affiliation, reply to the event thread linked below.

Congratulations to Singapore Airlines Virtual for being our May airline of the month!

Hello everyone! We now have an IFVARB Group here on the community. From this point forward, if any of you have incidents that you would like to report or questions, you may simply message the group, @IFVARB, and we will get to it at our earliest convenience.

Also, we have a new feature that is currently in development. Check out a preview of the DLVA airplanes in the sky below! This map will be available to all VA/VO’s and can be embedded straight into any website. We currently have no ETA of when this will be released. Let us know what you think in our Feedback Thread.

Virtual Airline Of The Month (June 2019)

Air Canada Virtual

Congratulations to Air Canada Virtual for being our June virtual airline of the month! Known for their good ol Canadian attitude and shared love for maple syrup, this virtual airline has been a huge part of Infinite Flight’s community for over two years now.

What better way is there to celebrate this special occasion than to have a huge event featuring them?! The IFVARB has teamed up with the mastermind of events , @Balloonchaser, to create one big event within the pacific series. This event will take place on June 29th, and will also help us get Air Canada Virtual ready for Canada day which is the day following this event. The event thread is linked below.

Once again congratulations to Air Canada Virtual! We all can’t wait to celebrate and are looking forward to having the prestigious virtual airline continue to be apart of the community for many days, weeks, months and years to come.
