Virgin Virtual Group - Flying in the Face of Ordinary

Website  Apply  Instagram


Welcome to the New VGVA. 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 and sign up for events - all in one easy to access place.

Best of all, we’re pioneering a new feature available exclusively to VGVA Pilots - 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.


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

New to VGVA, the Elevate Program gives pilots a new way to fly with us and our partners, and gain multipliers. Pilots tier up through the Elevate Tiers while still working their way through our ranks. Pilots work their way through the elevate tiers based on the amount of Elevate Points earned. Points are earned based on flight duration (regional, short haul, etc).

When our Weekly Featured Routes (WFRs) are released each week, pilots gain a multiplier for flying those flights as defined by their tier. See below for an outline.

Tiers

Tier Name Points WFR Multiplier
Red 0 1.5x
Silver 400 2x
Gold 1000 2.5x
Platinum 1500 3x

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.
