The future is here. And it starts at VGVA.
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.
We got some fancy new technology called ACARS (Aircraft Communicating Adressing and Reporting system) that allows pilots to quickly and easily file flight reports with just the press of the button. When filing an ACARS PIREP, all you have to do is hit the “Gather Information” button, which will gather the departure, arrival and flight time, then you enter a few VA-specific details, and then your done.
Our Team is what makes us who we are, and we immensely proud of that.

Virgin Virtual Group is proud to partner with various Virtual Airlines to provide some our unique route network to their pilots and to allow our pilots to fly part of their network through 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.
|Tier Name||Points||WFR Multiplier|
Along with our fancy new technology called ACARS, we have recently rolled out a Virtual Pilot Academy. The purpose of the academy is educate applicants to our VA that don’t yet possess enough knowledge of commercial aircraft and operations to meet our standards. The academy includes several hand made tutorials that range from communications with ATC all the way to climb speeds.
Virgin Virtual Group has proven to be not just a solidly-run VA with amazing staff and pilots, but a VA where I can explore the world from 3 different airlines plus its codeshares. The crew center is the best crew center I have ever experienced out of all the ones I’ve seen, and I would highly recommend this VA to anyone who wants a good balance of community and flying.
- First Officer Texasaviation
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.
