Welcome to the official IFC thread for the Sky Team Alliance, founded in August of 2018 by Air France-KLM and Delta Virtual. Sky Team has been the dream of the leadership of the two Virtual Airlines since the conception of Infinite Flight’s Global Update in 2017 and has grown to include six great VA’s on Infinite Flight. The Sky Team Alliance has flourished behind the scenes with the integration of AF-KLM and DLVA into a centralized slack, with new Sky Team VA’s joining the force. Behind the backing of our partnership, Sky Team continues the longest route agreement between VA’s for weekly routes posted based on the IFATC schedule.
Now, as Sky Team continues to climb together, we will be bringing our weekly event series to the IFC and bring the support of the community to this great team with Sky Team Sundays beginning soon!

Delta Virtual officially opened behind its founder @USA007 on Dec. 26, 2016 and has soared to be one of the most active virtual airlines within the IFC. Behind the backing of an agreement with the real-world Delta Airlines, Delta Virtual has changed the VA game with a state-of-the-art website that is unlike any other on the IFC, custom built from the ground up, it provides the support for more than 175 members within a VA that has logged more flights, more flying miles, and more flying time than any other VA, hands down.

Hub Captains are the newest level of support that work under the coordination of the Route Manager. Hub captains help oversee a hub, or group of hubs, within the VA and the routes assigned to them to make sure that DLVA has an up-to-date database that is accurate to the real-world airline
We are the Italian virtual airline, founded by Italian IFC members.
We believe that our saying Vivi, Ama, Vola (stands for live, love, fly) truly represents us, as our main mission is to be a family-friendly VA helping IF pilots to grow in the Virtual Airline world.
We put quality over quantity, that is why we decided to join the SkyTeam alliance allowing our pilots to join other SkyTeam airlines and profit not only of codesharing, but also rank-sharing and professional events.

Our VA is based on Aeroflot, Russian Airlines, which is based in Moscow Russia, and It’s subsidiaries, which are based throughout the former Soviet Union.
When entering the VA, you will notice that a hierarchy has been placed and some planes restrictions are in application but don’t worry, as a responsible pilot in our VA, you will be able to upgrade very fast. You can get more information about our fleet in the “Fleet” page and more information about our grading system in the “Our grading system & hierarchy” page.
The union of respect, teamwork and passion for what we do is AMVA’s essence. These are the pillars used to found it and that distinguish us by the most friendly and helpful community and the best developing VA in Infinite Flight.
We are young, creative and genius people full of love who are united since the beginning of this journey and always wanted a place to enjoy our passion; and that turns AMVA into “The line that unites us”.
An enormous choice of routes, a big fleet, community events, the most advanced flight training, experienced and highly-prepared staff and high realism in all our operations and procedures are just a few things or advantages that every member of our airline enjoys. And while the aviation and Infinite Flight continue growing, we are always open mind to receive new knowledges and keep growing and adapting to become a better and more perfect virtual airline.

Sky Team Alliance - Future
A product of the Sky Team Alliance is that we will provide a platform to bring our great communities together, and also strive to grow the membership of other Virtual Airlines that are a part of the community. Beyond the initial launch, it will be priority for the Alliance to come together with other Sky Team members, as well as emphasize and locate leadership throughout our pilot base to create and lead future VA’s to be approved by the IFVARB for inclusion
