Meet Garuda Indonesia Virtual.
At Garuda Indonesia Virtual, our team strives to provide the best virtual airline experience for every one of the pilots that steps through our doors. We offer a wide array of aircraft to choose from, which you can fly on any of our 250+ routes, flagship IFC and internal VA events, flash flights, group flights, and much, much more!
Midway through May 2019, our CEO, @Ozzy, founded Garuda Indonesia Virtual in an attempt to bring more attention to the Southeast Asia region in Infinite Flight. Since then, Garuda Indonesia Virtual has developed into a small caring community, with frequent group flights, events, and a growing pilot base.
Our Staff Team:
Here at GAVA, we have our staff team split into 2 sectors; the Board of Directors, and Lower Management. Read through the drop down menus below to find out more about each individual staff member.
Board of Directors
Hi, I am Ozzy, and I am the CEO & Founder of Garuda Indonesia Virtual. I have played Infinite Flight on and off since 2013, but only got an online subscription in late 2017, and over the course of that time, I have racked up over 1000 hours and over 700,000 xp. After that, I joined several VA’s and have been flying ever since, and I am super excited to be the CEO of GAVA.
Hello, I am Matt, and I am the COO of GAVA. I started playing IF November 2018. I joined the IFC in January 2019. I joined a few VAs afterward over the past few months as a pilot to understand what it takes to get a VA open & stay running. I became interested in controlling on the expert server shortly after gaining access to fly on the expert server, and I joined IFATC in April 2019.
Hey I am Raphael, and I am a huge aviation fanatic. I am the Head of Internal Affairs here at Garuda Indonesia Virtual, and my job is to validate all of our pilots flight logs, to make sure all of the routes in the VA are kept up to date, and to manage all of the other internal affairs within the VA. I look forward into seeing you in the skies with our shiny callsign, GAVA!
Hi I’m Krish and I am 14 year old teen from India. I have always loved aviation ever since I took my first flight when I was 3 on a B733. Life was good for me but it suddenly it went up like a roller coaster when I first saw Pocket Rishi’s Infinite Flight video. I loved the look of the sim and now I am hooked to it!
Hello, my name is Edoardo Camera, and I’m in charge of Public Relations for GAVA. I’m from Italy and I have played Infinite Flight since 2017. I am currently Grade 3, but very soon to be grade 4. I would like to thank the GAVA staff team for showing trust in me!
Hello, my name is Dhruv Chopra, and I am the Pilot Coordinator for GAVA. I joined IF very recently, earlier this year, and I fly almost everyday. I am based out of India. I am currently Grade 3 and will be Grade 4 very soon. I joined IF when I was looking for a flight simulator app on the app store.
Hello, I am Emiel, and I am the Events Director at Garuda Indonesia Virtual. I am 14 years old and I come from The Netherlands. I came into IF by searching for realistic flight simulators. I watched the Infinite flight promo and bought it. I played the non subscription mode for 2 weeks and after that I really wanted to have the live mode. I tried a month. That month flew by! After that I brought it for 1 year, which is is still on.
We are still hiring an ATC Director! If you are interested in this position, please don’t hesitate to message @Ozzy . Notice: You must be IFATC approved to be accepted into this staff role.
