IFVARB || Website || Pilot Application || Star Alliance Virtual


At Air India Virtual we aim to to provide the best Indian hospitality and experience above the skies of India. Going back to date, this VA was founded in late December '18 by our former CEO @Prasoon_S and the airline has reached 1 year of operations. We never expected to have come this far. Our pilots have helped us reach great heights. As of the moment, our pilots have logged over 10000+ hours along with 2,000+ flights logged till date. This is a record breaking achievement for our VA in such a small time. Our pilots have flown about 4 million miles which approximately equals to 160 revolutions of the earth. We have all kinds of pilots from ultra long haulers to short haulers. At AIVA, you will experience the real flavors and colors of India.

There are many Virtual Airlines to choose from. Finding one you can count on and build a relationship with in the long term is a difficult task. Here are some reasons as to why you have made the best decision by choosing us.

Our Approach

To us, it’s not just another virtual airline. As one of the only Indian airlines, we take pride in the service we offer. We encourage each other to achieve their best potential within the airline, whether it’s completing a long haul flight for the first time or managing a staff position effectively.


Each person, whether experienced or new to the simulator will go through a test and must achieve a certain percentage to qualify as a pilot and start their career with Air India Virtual. Staff members will make sure that each and every pilot is made fit for the role and will be provided as much support is needed to thrive in the airline. Each pilot will be monitored by our Chief Pilot continuously to make sure our quality isn’t hindered.

Our Support

Staff members and pilots alike from around the world are here to support you and help you with anything around the clock. We aim to get you sorted out as soon as possible, whether it is support needed through our email, Instagram, Slack or IFC account.

Our experience

Experience ranges from IFATC to IFAET to Content Creators. We are a well rounded VA with many experienced and mature members. We would love to have you on-board and expand our airline.

State of the art technology

We boast a fully fledged, mobile compatible, all-in-1 crew center, where you can sign up to join the airline, file flight plans, view fleet details and review your performance. Many more features are avaiable for you to see for yourself.

For everyone out there who want to join a VA where you want to have fun and learn, join AIVA. It was my best decision to join AIVA as my first VA. Everyone here is very helpful from the staff to high ranked pilots. They are professional and realistic and if you like something that supports this with a bit of fun, AIVA is your piece of cake. I will guarantee you will have a great time here and you definitely won’t regret joining our VA. - @Krsh7 , AIVA Pilot

Air India VA was the first Virtual airline that I joined in IF in late February 2019 and ever since I have joined I have had a wonderful experience. The team is amazing and the code-sharing network and the long hauls are amazing as well. - @DhruvChopra, AIVA Pilot

It is a fantastic experience working at AIVA. At every stage I felt like I had full support of operations and the staff at AIVA are fantastic. I will always look back with pleasure and pride being associated with Air India Virtual - @AKSHAY_2777 - AIVA Pilot
