Pilot Divisions and Programs
Philippine Airlines Virtual operates in three divisions and three programs.
The PAL Express Division - Caters most of the domestic flights around the Philippines. It is open to the rank of Cadet or higher.
The Philippine Airlines Division - Caters domestic and international flights to and from its hubs.
The PAL Historic Division - An exclusive division to the rank of Senior Captain and higher. It features historic flights that marked significant moments to the aviation history of the Philippines and Asia.
Airman Program - All full-fledged PRVA pilots are included in this program. They are able to enjoy and pursue flying with the airline. Ranks are imposed to maintain order and develop the pilot’s skill in flying the PRVA fleet. Awards are given to pilots who have shown dedication towards the airline.
Career Mode Program - The PRVA Career Mode Program aims to provide the most realistic airline pilot experience. Available once the Chief Captain rank hours are completed, pilots will work their way up the new Mabuhay ranks, each with their own aircraft available to fly one reached. To further add to the experience, pilots must take part in a certification flight for each plane they wish to fly and pilot’s are assigned routes to fly.
Training Program - PRVA pilots are a reflection of the VA as a whole, that’s why we must ensure that our pilots meet a certain level of standard. This is where the PRVA Training Program comes in. The program consists of items that pilots should be aware of when flying in the Expert Server. The PRVA TP will be conducted if a pilot were to fall short of the requirements to pass the Check-Ride Flight for a second time.
Philippine Airlines Virtual also communicates with other virtual airlines for possible codeshare agreements. As well as ensuring that all routes found in the database are updated to provide maximum realism to its pilots.
Our fleet consists of 10 B777-300ER aircraft, 6 A350-900 aircraft, 18 A321-200 aircraft, 5 BOMBARDIER Q400 aircraft, and the DC-10, MD-11, B747-200, and B747-400 aircraft which were retired many years ago.
Our route network ranges from 32 domestic destinations and 42 international destinations in 23 countries! Here is our link to our Airtable!

An account in IFC with good standing.
A legitimate Infinite Flight Pro subscription.
A rank in Infinite Flight of Grade 3 or higher.

After filling out the application form, applicants will be sent an email with the link to the written test. It is expected to be accomplished within 15 minutes, with a passing rate of 80%. An IFC PM will be sent again to the applicant with their test result and other instructions.
If any query may arise regarding the application, the applicant is encouraged to reply to the email to facilitate a one-way communication with the them and the staff.
In addition to the written exams, pilots wishing to join PRVA must complete a Check-Ride Flight if they get 85% and below on their written exam. Upon passing the exam, applicants will be contacted by the Chief Pilot or possibly another staff member. During the flight the instructor will be assessing the following:
- Communication with UNICOM
- Ability to construct a Flight Plan
- Aircraft Management
- Communication with active ATC
The Check-Ride Flight is where the applicant will fly a flight where the departure airport will have no ATC and the arrival airport will have ATC. This will allow us to better assess the pilots ability to communicate with UNICOM and where the arrival airport is controlled by ATC to better understand their ability to communicate with ATC.
When the applicant will fly any route (assigned to them by the Chief Pilot/Instructor) The flight will require the applicant to submit a flight plan prior to their flight in a format and must be submitted 15 minutes prior to the flight a specific flight plan structure will be given to the applicant.
The Chief Pilot or possibly another staff member when assigned to the applicant will decide on the date of the flight with the applicant. Once this is confirmed, the instructor will contact the applicant 1 day prior to provide information on the flight. However, the applicant will be responsible for all aspects of the flight including planning the flight and paying attention to the other aspects mentioned above.
If the applicant were to fail a Check-Ride Flight they will be given the opportunity to take the flight once more. If they were too, unfortunately, failing their second attempt the applicant will be assigned to an instructor to begin the PRVA Training Program.
Enrollment to Crew Centre
If the applicant got a passing result in the written test, they will be enrolled in the Discord workspace and earn the rank of Cadet with its corresponding badge. From here, all correspondences regarding the application with staff will be through private chat unless specified.
