How This Benefits Our Pilots:
We understand that flying the same livery and in the same region of the world every single time that you fly can eventually get boring, so we like to offer these VA route exchanges to increase pilot engagement within our VA. So after this partnership, our pilots can now fly to new regions of the world, in the beautiful TUI livery, and log it for us, just like you would do with any normal Garuda Indonesia Virtual flight!
Thanks for the routes hope to have a event soon
Me too! It has been great working with you guys.
Introducing the Garuda Indonesia Virtual Air Traffic Control Program:
Today we are very proud to announce the debut of our brand new ATC program, GAVATC. This program allows our pilots to venture into the path of Air Traffic Controlling while representing our VA in all of its glory! Our new ATC Director, @jamie_pharoah, will be leading this new program, so you should contact him if you have any questions.
‣ Pilots that join GAVATC can log the length of their ATC session through our PIREP system. (There is also a 1.5x bonus for controlling on expert server!)
‣ GAVATC members can control for events that are partnered with, or organised by, GAVA, and to give ATC services to pilots that request it.
‣ Gives members the ability to progress through a whole new ranking system exclusively for ATC.
‣ GAVATC members gain access to a private lounge within Slack.
How to Join GAVATC:
If you are already a GAVA pilot, expect a Slack announcement in the coming days where you can sign up through an Airtable form. If you are not already a GAVA pilot, join here today, and talk to our ATC Director after you have entered into our Slack workspace.
After you have applied, expect to be added to a private training channel where you will first complete a written exam. If you achieve 85% or greater on the exam, then you will be allowed to continue on to the next part of the application process: a practical exam (if you do not pass, you will have to wait a week to retake).
Our ATC Director conducts these practical exams by judging your controlling skills on several different key factors, which put all of your ATC knowledge and experience to the test. Then, after passing the practical exam, trainees officially become a GAVATC member, starting at the rank of Junior Air Traffic Controller.

A New Head of Internal Affairs:
It is our pleasure tonight to formally introduce you to the third and final member of the Garuda Indonesia Virtual Board of Directors, @Helmethead, who will be assuming the position of Head of Internal Affairs! Omar has been with us from the start (4th pilot to join the VA), and in the time since then, he has achieved some great things, such as the Pilot of the Month award, the prestigious Commander rank, and the highest flight time (roughly 1/6 of all the flight time in the VA is accredited to him!). Because of all this, we are super delighted to be giving him this position today to show him how much he means to our VA community.
A Brief Statement From Him:
Hi, I’m Omar (IFC @Helmethead) (not to be confused with AFKLM’s Omar, as many do!). I’m from Kent, just outside of London, UK. I’m normally about skies in Infinite Flight or for real when traveling and joined GAVA in June 2019. Since then I’ve been exploring different routes and regions in Indonesia and across the Skyteam world and I’m looking forward to helping GAVA as much as possible and of course anyone else that needs it as well along the way. Good times.
Thank you very much indeed - it’s a pleasure to be a part of.

A New HR Manager…
It is our pleasure today to announce Garuda Indonesia Virtual’s brand new HR Manager, @Sean_McCormack! Seán has been with us since August of last year, and is one of most active members in our Slack workspace. The Board of Directors could not think of a better contender for this position to go to!
A Bit About Seán:
Hello, my name is Seán McCormack. I’m a 15 year old living in Galway, Ireland. I started playing Infinite Flight in late 2018, after I saw a video about it on YouTube. I am delighted to be the new HR Manager for GAVA, and I would like to thank @Ozzy for the opportunity.
Garuda Indonesia Virtual is Hiring:
It is with much sadness that we announce @DhruvChopra’s departure from his position as Pilot Coordinator at Garuda Indonesia Virtual.

We wish him the best for all his future endeavours outside of our Virtual Airline.
With that being said, we are looking for a new Pilot Coordinator to take the helm of training and helping to improve our pilots, so they can live up to the best of their abilities. If you are interested, please read through the criteria below to ensure that you are a candidate, then press “apply here”.
‣ At least 14 years old.
‣ Grade 3 or above in Infinite Flight.
‣ Able to use the Slack app.
‣ Be in good standing on IFC & with IFVARB.
‣ Active IF Pro subscription.
‣ Not been staff at another VA in the last 90 days.
