Good day fellow IFC members! I present you with The 2017 Virtual Airline Awards. How this works is: I created categories. You then nominate a virtual airline to win each category (maximum 2 nominations per category, you can nominate your own VA) and then on Monday morning (American time), voting will begin. After 3 days of voting, votes will close and then a winner will be announced for each category! There is no official prize, just bragging rights (Voted best/most ____ by the 2017 IFC) and publicity for your VA.

The categories are below:

-Best VA Website
-Most Professional VA
-Most Caring VA
-Best Overall VA
-Most Organized/Put Together VA
-Best Fictional VA (a VA not based off of a real world airline)
-Most Active VA
-Best VA partnership (this would be 2 VA’s that are partnered with each other)
-Most Unique VA
-Most Fun VA
-Best VA to be a pilot for (this would be a VA that offers good conditions, benefits, events, etc. for their pilots)

Thank you all for taking the time to read, and best of luck!

I’m choosing for most fun VA as NetJets Virtual. They really have their ballgame together and I have done some group flights with them and boy are they energetic and amazing to be around.

This sounds a really nice idea and a lovely way of celebrating Virtual Airlines on the IFC, however I have a few reservations.

  • in a nomination based award system like this, what is being done to validate the nomination process, what is stopping me asking all my pilots to vote for our airline, or another, surely if we can do this, the process becomes corrupted and it wouldn’t be fair
  • British Airways are in a fortunate position that we have over 100 active pilots, what is being done to help the VAs who have maybe 10/20 loyal pilots and not much IFC PR from receiving the same credit?
  • How can their be categories for best organised or most fun, who decides that, will their be inspectors come round VAs?

Although I 100% support, on behalf of BAVA , the idea of an award system to celebrate positive contributions to the IFC and the VA category, I feel that on this occasion, BAVA won’t be taking part.

However, I will take the opportunity to commend Frontier VA, Air France VA and also the USCG VA, who I really do join BAVA in leading the way in virtual airline operations on Infinite Flight.

Best of luck to all whose involved!! See you in the skies!

Okay I said I wouldn’t but I have to as it isn’t fair to my pilots and staff to do otherwise. Please don’t get the wrong idea and think I’m just trying to puff myself up. This is for the entire team. No one man could have done what FVA does as a family and team.

Nominations For Frontier Virtual:
Most caring VA (we work as a solid tight knit family)
Most fun VA (just check our chats if you ever join. Boy do they get wild lol)
Most Unique VA (I have to with our animal tails)
Best VA to be a pilot for (I love every single of my pilots and flying with them is some of the most enjoyable times of my IF career)

Remember guys, these are only nominations. Voting begins in about 4-7 days, who knows, I didn’t expect a huge surge in nominations so maybe sooner!
