United Virtual is flying into 2020! We are excited to call ourselves a global VA with 170+ active pilots from over 20 countries! We are growing by the week!

Since our creation in late 2017, our amazing pilots have logged over 50,000 hours! We would like to thank both our pilots and codeshare partners to help achieve this!

We offer a friendly and fun environment encouraging the growth of our pilots. Our staff members are here to help our pilots.

Our pilots are able to enjoy one of the largest route databases of any VA with over 3,000 worldwide routes with diverse aircrafts that will let you explore the world! Whether a pilot wants to fly a short hop or an ultra long haul, our route database will have the perfect route. Our pilots do not have to worry about returning to their original hub but are allowed to explore United’s and our partners’ many hubs.

We are excited that the Airbus A350 includes the new United livery. Our pilots are able to fly the A350 to the locations that United’s 772’s serve!
