The Infinite Flight Virtual Airline Regulatory Board
The IFVARB is intended to make VAs more professional, organized, and in line with the guidelines and standards of the community. In addition, the IFVARB helps clear up some of the clutter on the forum that certain members find inconvenient and irritating while also making the presence of Virtual Airlines clearer and more beneficial.
Our main goal is to benefit new and existing VAs that add value to the community by creating a professional, organised, and pleasant atmosphere for like-minded individuals to thrive and grow within.
All members of the IFVARB have been specially chosen for their maturity, expertise, and experience involving VAs and the Infinite Flight Community itself. Membership on the board is on an invitation-only basis. Please do not DM members about joining the board.

How do I reserve an airline?
You are able to reserve an airline if you meet the requirements on our Apply Page in our website. It is important to meet all the requirements and provide all the information asked for in the application to successfully reserve an airline.
How can I have my positive and negative feedback heard?
The #discussions channel of the IFVARB Slack. A member will gladly respond to your questions, praise, or concerns. In addition, you can also provide feedback on our feedback and questions thread .
What if I see a VA that may not be certified?
In this case, please personal message an Admin here on the community and they will be happy to look into it for you. Please do not inquire directly on the thread as it creates unnecessary clutter.
How do I know what Admin and Leader I’ll get assigned to?
You will get an Admin and Leader assigned to your application based on the region of your VA/VO. @Danman is assigned to original VA/VOs while the others are assigned to the regions shown below.
What are the requirements for me to apply to be a CEO for my VA/VO?
The following are the requirements needed to be a Virtual Airline/Organization CEO:
- Member trust level (TL2) forum account. This must be the CEO’s own account. VA specific accounts can only be made once your VA is certified.
- Knowledge and experience of the VA community- We expect applicants to understand how the IFC VA community works and ideally know people who are a part of it. ‘Experience’ is a loose term; experience in a staff team for a VA is ideal but being part of a VA as a pilot or other member may be enough to qualify you. We will also consider applicants who may not have been apart of a VA specifically but have a good forum presence and/or have been active on the forum for a long time. We will consider each applicant using their experience statement.
- A Good level of maturity- We will assess this from your conduct when messaging IFVARB admins and staff, your general conduct on the forum, and in some cases will consult the moderation team for advice. There is no age limit, however, we can reject applicants based on their maturity alone.
- Ensuring that it is not on the list of disallowed VAs or on the list of reserved VAs. We have been contacted by various airlines about copyright violations and asking that VA’s cease operations. The list of disallowed VA’s can be found here and the active reservations can be found here.
