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!

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.

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.

To the staff of DLVA, my application has been rejected 2x after the two-week wait period after the first failed attempt. I have also sent two messages to the application team. Can any DLVA application team member please help me out? I have my own thread titled “DLVA Application Help!!!” which anyone with help can comment on. Thanks!!
