United Virtual | Connecting People & Uniting the World

Website | Discord | Instagram

Founded in 2018, United Virtual has been striving to provide pilots with the best user experience through providing outstanding realism and providing unique opportunities. Through a variety of events, group flights, discussions, and occasional streams, we’re able to offer our pilots an atmosphere that they’ll be bound to find an interest with. Furthermore, with 7500+ routes and 10+ aircraft, our pilots have access to some of the most resources provided by virtual airlines. Additionally, through our latest rework and reorganization, we’ve been focused on developing various programs, taking our pilot’s experience as precedence. Such developments have allowed us to release unique and intuitive programs, such as our AVIATE, MileagePlus Rewards, and United Shop. With United Virtual, pilots have the ability to truly connect with people and unite the world.

AVIATE Academy

Our mission at AVIATE is to give you , the pilot, the knowledge that will provide the best and most realistic flying experience possible. Through our self-guided courses, you’ll be able to proceed at your own pace with Instructor guidance and learn proper procedures, communications, and much more. Above all, our entire curriculum is modular, allowing Instructors to assign various Modules to personalize each student’s training.

Furthermore, to support our community’s IFATC organization, we’ve selected talented Instructors

MileagePlus Rewards

To encourage our pilots to stay engaged with the community as well as give perks to those who do, United Virtual is launching the MileagePlus Rewards Program. This program counts the miles pilots travel during our events and gives them rewards mileage for every mile flown.

Premier Ranks
  • Premier Silver
  • Premier Gold
  • Premier Platinum
  • Premier 1K

Each varying rank will receive a bountiful number of perks, including event pushback and signup priority, access to certain legacy aircraft, and much much more.

The United Shop, an online discord shop operated by our United Virtual Discord Bot, offers our Pilots to use their earnings through a variety of engaging activities and events to purchase flight multipliers, limited access to certain perks, etc.

United Crew

The United Crew, better known as our community members, are undoubtedly what we treasure the most. Without them, our Virtual Airline would cease to exist and therefore, we strive to continue to improve our Crew experience. Whether it be launching a new, state-of-the-art Crew Center or conducting our weekly events, we continue to find unique methods at improving the experience for our United Crew members.

I don’t think words can describe how I feel seeing this. I feel regret, happiness, disappointment, and pure excitement!! I waited to see the day where UVAL rebranded itself away from my name, I knew it would happen, and I knew it would be awesome. I cannot help but feel a sense of jealousy seeing this right now thought. I am beyond excited to see this VA get the attention if hasn’t had since I left, and quite frankly I don’t think it got enough attention for the amount of work everyone put in. This is simply amazing to see…It’s been just shy of 11 months since I stepped away from everything, and I can’t express my gratitude to the ENTIRE UVAL family for staying strong during this year, I know it’s been a rough one for darn sure, and that finger will always point at me, as it should.

I wish you guys so much luck into the beyond, and hey, maybe one day I’ll find myself back in the VA, but until that day comes I will watch along the side. Wondering, hoping, and excited!

With all due respect,
Blake Stephens - Former CEO of United Virtual Airlines


I’m proud to be apart of such a VA. #UnitedFamily


Great thread drew, Carlos, and Kenneth


We needed to take a step out of the ordinary; cleaning and building a brand new image that everyone will be able to enjoy. Thank you for showing some love towards the VA, we really appreciate it.

Kenneth N. - UVAL CEO


I am so proud to be a staff member here, and I can’t wait to see what wonderful new heights this VA soars to! Great job on this amazing thread!


Dear pilots and community members,

We’re glad to finally be able to announce our latest (and greatest) rework. From what I understand, UVAL has had to experience several reworks, some for the better, some for the worse. As a pilot here myself, I can understand the frustration regarding our so many changes. It is my hope that this latest rework, while tedious, will bring you the best experience so far. With our first release, we will be offering you guys up to 7 new feautures and changes and we will be sharing with you guys 2 WIPS that will be released soon.

Without further ado, allow me the pleasure of cutting the ribbon, if you will, to the new United Virtual; Connecting people. Uniting the World.

Introducing our AV/ATE Academy

Once again, we have decided to enhance our training program; replacing it with our new AVIATE Academy. Our mission at AVIATE is to give you, the pilot, the knowledge that will provide the best and most realistic flying experience possible. Through our self-guided courses, you’ll be able to proceed at your own pace with Instructor guidance and learn proper procedures, communications, and much more. Our courses are divided into separate Modules, each Module focusing on improving an aspect of the pilot’s flying capability. You will have a designated recruiter and flight instructor to help you get through these Modules, however, the main objective is for you to learn by yourself, guided by our Flight Instructors.

MileagePlus Rewards Program

Enjoy some of our greatest perks with our MileagePlus Rewards Program. Whether it be special access to our hidden fleet or access to one of our most exclusive lounges, which gives even more unfiltered access, MileagePlus is a program that all can enjoy. Membership will be based upon the miles your fly overall, regardless of hours or multipliers. Below, we’ve highlighted the full list of ranks and benefits. We hope to see more of you at Events to collect those Miles!

  • Premier Silver – 50K Miles
    • Priority access for UVAL Events
    • Access to United’s A359
  • Premier Gold – 100K Miles

New Ranking System

As some of you know already, our current ranking system, along with our hours system, is very wrecked and unorganized. With this new ranking system, you will be able to experience an organized program. With just four ranks, UVAL’s new ranking system will make it much easier for our pilots to be able to fly all their favorite planes all while being able to stay engaged.

  • Second Officer – 0+ Hours
    • Unlocks the CJR2 / CRJ7 / E175
  • First Officer – 50+ Hours

  • Sr. Captain – 300+ Hours
    • Unlocks the B772 / B77W / B789 / B78X
    • Unlocks all Wide-body Codeshare Aircraft

…and much more!

Pilots will be able to play both single and multiplayer games to earn virtual currency and make purchases at our United Shop. This feature will be available beginning 12/06/21.

  • New Social Media Accounts, follow them!
Planned Projects

We’re really hoping to be able to greatly improve our pilot experience with these changes. Personally, I am extremely excited as we roll these programs out. Working together with @Kenneth_Natal and @Carlos_R has been a tremendous honor and together, we hope to be able to build UVAL to be the best it can be. For those who are interested in joining us as we continue to build, remember, you can apply HERE!
