Hello, and a warm South African welcome to all. Here at South African Virtual, we strive in every way possible to provide pilots with professionalism and satisfaction, while trying to maintain and deliver the equivalent real-life standards, represented by the real South African Airways. Our vision and aim is simple; deliver professionalism and satisfaction to members of South African Virtual, while also aiming to grow with success. If you are interested, the doors at South African Virtual are always open. Hope to see you flying with us!

We are Infinite Flights’ first, oldest, and largest African-based Virtual Airline. Founded in October of 2017, all of us at South African Virtual have strived with excellence to enhance all the pilot’s experience at SAVA. With our warm-welcoming, approachable, and devoted staff, we can guarantee that you will have a professional and satisfying experience.

Why Us?
We offer a large fleet to fly within Infinite Flight. Ranging from regional aircraft to international aircraft. Additionally, we offer to our pilots more than 120 diverse routes to choose from that reach multiple international destinations across the globe. Furthermore, as a proud Star Alliance Virtual member, we provide our pilots with Star Alliance Virtual codeshares, aircraft, and routes. Thus giving pilots an even larger variety of aircraft and routes to choose from.

We also offer pilots exclusive benefits, amazing weekly events, and photo competitions that further enhances the pilots’ experience and satisfaction.

Additionally, we have introduced a unique feature only found here at SAVA - Career Mode and Free Mode.

Career mode will work as a classical VA structure, with ranks and limitations to aircraft and routes. Free mode will work as the following. Only when a pilot reaches the Captain Rank in our ranks, they will be allowed to fly whatever aircraft they want, to all the routes they have gained access to in the Career mode. In order for them to increase the range of routes, pilots must continue to pursue Career mode.

For more information, check our website under the “About Us” tab, and click “About Career and Free Mode”

Here at South African Virtual, we use the free communication source called Slack. Slack allows both pilots and staff to navigate and communicate with ease, with the addition to posting interesting articles, videos, images, and starting discussions. Additionally, members will have the benefit of being notified of upcoming events or important dates, during times while they are using Slack and when they are not using Slack.

If you have any questions or doubts, please do not hesitate to contact @Owain_G or @Springbok777.

Awesome @Owain_G and the team


Awesome thread @Owain_G
This is a job well done sir. Proud to be part of this VA.


This is my first attempt at telling a story.


Looks great! Nice thread.


Thank you!


As events manager at this VA i would say its one of the most kind and helpful VA’s out there. As we only have a small community and still expanding we’d love to have you onboard so join up and start your South African journey.


About a month ago I took the A330 from FAOR to EDDF. And as I departed our CEO @Owain_G spawned in and taxid to 03L as I was powering down the runway for take off.
I decided to do something very special as this man has gone through a lot of lengths to open the VA and keep it running.
So as I departed I made a right turn for a downwind leg while carefully watching him taxi to the active. As I called out the base leg of my approach he arrived at 03L and held short.
Today I’d like to make it known that you’re a great leader and with this flyby, I salute you sir!


I know this update isn’t new anymore but I’m still excited to see the new A330 liveries

Me too. We’re anticipating the A340 rework and that should be just as epic as the A330.
