At Southwest Virtual, we offer a diverse system of routes that stretch from the islands of Hawaii to the east coast of the United States. In addition, international services provide services to countries such as Mexico, Cuba, and the Dominican Republic. With our fleet consisting only of the Boeing 737, our pilots can learn and master the fundamentals of flying this versatile aircraft. In addition, this provides the flexibility of being able to fly routes as short as 30 minutes, or as long as six hours. With a crew center that can be navigated quickly, pilots can find routes, fly, and file these flights efficiently.

The Southwest Virtual fleet is simple, with just the Boeing 737-700 and the Boeing 737-800. However, with multiple liveries, including the Desert Gold Classic Blue, and Heart colors, as well as special liveries featuring Shamu and Illinois One, there’s something for everyone. With a simple fleet, our pilots can learn everything there is to know about the 737, and in doing so, mastering the flying component of the aircraft.

With service to 115 destinations in 40 U.S. states, as well as international service to countries including Mexico, Costa Rica, and Cuba, Southwest Virtual offers one of the most diverse system of routes there is to offer. Featuring routes ranging in length from 30 minutes to six hours, our routes are flexible for any pilot. Our hub and spoke system also provides additional variety; our nationwide system of hubs is listed below.
Since the beginning, Southwest Virtual has never been very big on limiting what or where you can fly because of your seniority, rank, or any other reason. As such, while we do have a ranking system, it does not put any stipulations on the routes or aircraft you can fly. It is merely there to quickly determine how many hours you have, and is there for those pilots who like to climb up the ranks. Career Ranks are Trainee through ATP Captain and A-List Preferred Ranks are from Bronze to Platinum.
- Trainee: 0-10 Hours
- Second Officer: 10-25 Hours
- First Officer: 25-50 Hours
- Senior First Officer: 50-75 Hours
- Captain: 75-125 Hours
- Senior Captain: 125-200 Hours
- ATP Captain: 200-300 Hours
For our most dedicated pilots, our Rapid Rewards program offers a wide variety of perks, including event priority, flight time multipliers, and more! Beginning at the Captain rank (75 hours), pilots will qualify for this program, and at 300 hours, pilots will qualify for our most prestigious status, A-List Preferred. A-List status pilots will enjoy a dedicated membership role in our Discord server, multipliers on all flights, and event signup and pushback priority.
A-List Preferred Ranks
- Bronze: 300-750 Hours
- Silver: 750-1500 Hours
