Virgin Virtual Group - Bringing you to the World - 2022 Official Thread

Website  Apply  Instagram


Welcome to the VGVA Official IFC Thread. You’ll love us, but here’s why…

Since our founding in January of 2018 as Virgin America Virtual, the Virgin Virtual Group has continued to be an innovator in the Virtual Airline sector ever since. Our mission is to bring new, never before seen additions to the Infinite Flight Virtual Airline sector that pilots love.

We strive for realism while still creating an enjoyable environment for our pilots. We boast a truly worldwide route network, with pilots able to fly aircraft from Virgin Atlantic, Virgin America and Virgin Australia at every rank.

VGVA has also welcomed a new state-of-the-art Crew Center, custom made from scratch to give our pilots the best experience. Pilots can view their information, file PIREPs, find routes, view the Weekly Featured Routes and sign up for events - all in one easy to access place.

Best of all, here at VGVA our Crew Centre contains a feature known as - ACARS. ACARS stands for Aircraft Communications Addressing and Reporting System and allows pilots to log their flights quickly and easily. All they need to do is log onto the Crew HQ, Run ACARS using the big red button and enter some VGVA-specific details and their PIREP is filed. Information such as Departure, Arrival and Flight Time is all fetched from Infinite Flight.

INTRODUCTION FROM THE CEO

Hey there my name is Robert and I am the Chief Executive Officer here at Virgin Virtual Group. my journey started here back in the early start of 2019 where I was a pilot myself. I then had the chance to apply for a staff position when one had opened up for Recruitment Manager after a few months my hard work had paid off and I was offered the position of HR Manager. I did not stop there and continued to provide ways on how we could improve our VA even more to benefit our Pilots as after all the Pilots are the ones who make the VA world what it is, during this time we said farewell to our CEO Kai at that point I was lucky enough to be offered the position of Chief Operations Officer which I held for a few months before the last CEO Jack had to move on. From there in August 2021 I took over the reigns as CEO and I truly have big shoes to fill as this VA would not be where it is without many of the current and former staff members that have helped create such an environment. I shall always be looking for ways to improve the VA for the Staff and the Pilots and I look forward to seeing you all join during your time in the world of Infinite Flight.

Our Team is what makes us who we are, and we are immensely proud of that.

Coming to VGVA in 2022 is something similar to a program we had before, the Elevate Program gives pilots a new way to fly with us and our partners, and gain multipliers. Top Tier Pilots will Elevate through the Tiers while still working their way through our ranks. Pilots will receive the ability to claim higher multipliers on their flights as well as be awarded other opportunities within the VA.

When our Weekly Featured Routes (WFRs) are released each week, pilots gain a 2x multiplier for flying any of the routes that have been selected for that particular week. The best part about the WFR’s is that you can fly them regardless of what rank you are within the VA.


I’ve spent a lot of hours at Virgin Virtual and it never fails to impress me how many routes are accessible, with so many amazing routes all over the world I never get tired of flying for them, and with them in many occasions. The staff here are very kind, and definitely gave me and others a warm welcome when I first joined.
– Captain Scott

I really like Virgin group virtual airline, it’s all about community and that’s what makes the airline friendly and fun to fly for.
– Second Officer Oliver

Good Morning/Afternoon IFC,

Virgin Virtual Group would like to take the time to welcome @Captain_Piotr to the VGVA Staff Team as our very new Human Resources Manager.

Our new HR Manager comes with a large level of experience within the VA community and we couldn’t be more happy with the decision to make him apart of ours.

We would like to wish @Captain_Piotr the best during his time here as a member of the Staff team and look forward to seeing all the work he will put into this VA.

This VA seems interesting I’ll think about joining

Would love to join but since I will be joining ANVA and CXVA it will be hard keeping up

Hi there,

Our Activity requirements are made flexible for all members and that is why we only require a minimum 1 flight per month to be filed and if you fall behind don’t worry we won’t remove you straight away our HR Manager will reach out to you to make sure everything is alright and will offer you opportunities so you don’t get removed as that’s not what I’m about in the VA as I understand people do get busy in life.

If you’re still interested in joining feel free to submit that Application.

Kind regards
Robert
CEO | Virgin Virtual Group

Thanks for that! I will apply whenever I get my sub back since it’s almost gone now
