About UPS Virtual
UPS Virtual Airlines, one of the few cargo airline opportunities on Infinite Flight, offers a professional environment in which pilots can learn, improve on, and master their flying skills. It is built on the idea that pilots in Infinite Flight should be allowed to fly wherever and whenever they please, allowing absolute freedom. You choose your own adventure! Unlike the majority of Infinite Flight’s virtual airlines, pilots who are hired to fly for UPS Virtual are immediately granted permission to fly on any of our established routes using any aircraft; there is no hierarchy of pilot privileges!
UPS Virtual Airlines currently offers 227 destinations across five continents for its pilots to explore! With an endless number of potential routes on a variety of powerful aircraft, you’re guaranteed to love every one of your flights with UPS Virtual! Click here to view an interactive map of all of our destinations.
UPS Virtual Airlines based the majority of its fleet off of the real world airline, giving its pilots a variety of aircraft to choose to fly, ranging from the small, capable Cessna 208 Caravan, to the massive, iconic Boeing 747-8. While we currently have the aircraft listed below in our fleet, we also have plans to expand:
Cessna 208 Caravan (Generic Livery)
Boeing 757-200F (UPS Livery)
Boeing 767-300 (Generic Livery)
Airbus 330-200F (UPS Livery)
McDonnell Douglas MD-11F (UPS Livery)
Boeing 747-8 (Generic Livery)
Want more UPS Liveries? We do, too!
Unique Ranking System
The UPS Virtual Airline presents a new, prestigious ranking system that gives even the most experienced pilots on Infinite Flight new goals to strive for! With the release of Global, time-building became as easy as putting the plane in auto pilot and waking up in 12 hours with tons of “experience.” Grade 5s often mention their lack of new goals to reach, so UPS Virtual incorporated a unique system of ranking its pilots!
Cargo Handler: 0 hours required. Achieved upon acceptance into the airline.

Join the Elites!
Pilot applications are now open! As is with any virtual airline, pilot applicants must meet certain requirements to be considered for hire. Everyone who wishes to join the airline must:
- Be at least 12 years of age*
- Be at least Grade 3 on Infinite Flight Live
- Have at least 15 hours of cumulative flight time on Infinite Flight Live

Prospective pilots must submit an Initial Application Form via the UPS Virtual Airline’s website. The Initial Application will include information such as your name, Infinite Flight Community username, age, and email address. Once a recruiter receives your Initial Application, he/she will contact you and request a screenshot of your online flight statistics to prove that you meet the Grade, XP, Landings, and Flight Time requirements. Once you’ve proven you meet the requirements, you will be given the Pilot Acceptance Exam, which will test you on your knowledge of basic aeronautical factors. Once your score is received, you will be contacted by your recruiter with a notice of acceptance into the airline if you pass, or information on how you can reattempt the test if you fail. After initial contact from a recruiter, pending applications left open for longer than the duration of one month at any point of the application process (initial application, flight statistic submission, or Pilot Acceptance Exam) will be discontinued without further question.
Questions regarding the UPS Virtual Airline can be directed to the head recruiter, @Koby_Thomas, or any of the other staff members.
Stay tuned for more exciting news!!
