Southwest Virtual | Limited Operations | Positions Available


Southwest Virtual has been a pioneering VA on the Infinite Flight Community since our conception back in March. We introduced a revolutionary Booking System that allows anyone to Book and Fly a route. But, we know that pilots are our most powerful fuel. That’s why we give them everything they need to fly with, while keeping a fun and professional atmosphere on our Slack. With hundreds of routes across North America, an active community, professional and helpful staff, and a unique way to fly booked flights, Southwest Virtual is the perfect fit for a seasoned VA veteran or a newcomer to the Virtual Airlines scene!

What We Fly

What We Fly

If there’s any down fall of this VA, it’s our rather limited fleet. While we only fly the Boeing 737-700 and Boeing 737-800 series aircraft, we make up for it in any other way possible, and you are flying one of the most popular and reliable commercial aircraft in the world. These mighty birds can take us anywhere we need to go, and we’ll be providing service to places the real-world Southwest doesn’t go to give you more variety. Check out some cool screenshots and aircraft specs right below!

What’s a line check?

A line check is a test of basic knowledge of a certain aircraft. Basically, you’ll have to preform a few patterns. You’ll get more info from Juan.

Ok, sounds good!!!
