Welcome to The Virgin Virtual Group Thread

Say goodbye to activity requirements, boring events and itty bitty fleets and say hello to flying - the fun way.
Our VA has a fairly short history, but we’ve sure had our fair share of ups and downs. In January of 2018 we were certified by the IFVARB as Virgin America Virtual with @Delta_Alpha_Lima as CEO. When @Trevor_A took over as CEO in mid-2018, the VA changed forever, and in late 2018 we became the VA you know today. The Virgin Virtual Group.

Check out our latest event; to the outback!


The VGVA Staff Team is extremely proud to announce that as of 0600Z our Airtable PIREP System will be no more. All pilots are currently in the process of transferring over to a new phpVMS Crew Center that our COO has set up.

In addition to this, yesterday our 189th Pilot joined us. Join us on our #RoadTo200 and who knows, maybe you’ll be our 200th pilot?
Note: We will be implementing a pilot cap of 200 pilots and activity requirements to log at least one flight per 2 months upon hitting 200 pilots.

The entire staff team would like to give a huge thank you to everyone who helped us make it this far. @Delta_Alpha_Lima, our original CEO back when we were Virgin America Virtual, @Knellered, our current chief pilot who’s been with us right from the very start, @DeerCrusher for helping us rebrand to VGVA from VXVA. And of course, all of our wonderful pilots. You make the VA what it is and we would not be here today without all 189 of you. I would tag you all if I could, but I think that’s a little overboard.

Update

VGVA are happy to announce that, effective immediately, we no longer have a rank structure.

In yet another step to becoming a VA with a difference, we recently, after a vote in Slack, decided to abolish our rank structure.


200%20Pilots

We have reached an amazing milestone of 200 pilots. We would like to thank the community for their ongoing support to help us reach this point. As of today, activity checks will be done semi-regularly in Slack, and all pilots should show they are active by reacting to the message within 72 hours.


Congratulations%20Chris

Last but certainly not least, we would like to congratulate our Executive Directory @Christopher_Coyne, who is a pilot for the real world Virgin Atlantic(!) on his placement to fly the new Airbus A350s that VIR is receiving. He will begin flying them beginning after the next delivery. Please join us in congratulating him on this amazing achievement.


That's all for today, see you in the skies!

Any idea as to when you would be opening up to get more pilots? I’d be interested in joining if you were to open up to more.

We are still reviewing and accepting applications
