Virtual Air Tigers Official Thread


imageAbout Us image

Founded in August 2021 the Virtual Air Tigers is a unique air display team focusing on formation flights and air shows. Our aim is to promote military aviation and air shows as the majority of all flights in Infinite Flight are commercial. Professionalism and realism are extremely important for us whilst not forgetting to have fun !

Message from the CEO

I’ve been playing Infinite Flight since 2016 and I’m still fascinated by it. My aim was to have a Virtual Airline /Organization sometime and now I’m proud to present you the “Virtual Air Tigers.” Although it’s not my first VA I founded, it is definitely the best and we all strive for professionalism without forgetting to have fun!

If you have any questions, do not hesitate to ask them!”

Founder and Flight Leader: @German_Pilot

image Our Routes image

As we don’t have a route-based system there will be 4 different types of flights instead:

1. Training Flights

All assigned pilots meet up and perform a training flight with the flight leader ( FL ) or the vice flight leader.

In case, both flight leaders can not take part the team will select a temporary FL just for the upcoming flight.

2. Repositioning Flights

All aircraft are being flown to another airport (e.g. flight to the US) with the support of a tanker or all are being flown with our private aircraft. This is done to provide more realism as you have to take off from there where you landed before.

3. Air Show Flights

4. Solo Training Flights

Every pilot is allowed to perform solo training flights.

F-22 “Raptor”

The F-22 “Raptor” is the workhorse for the majority of our flights. Due to its Supermaneuverability and many more flight characteristics, it is perfect for our air shows.

​Aircraft information:

Crew: 1

Weaponry: available but not used

​Range: 1,800mi /2,960km

​Max. Speed: 1,500mph /2,414km/h

Service ceiling: 65,000ft /20,000m


- A-10 “Warthog”

Sometimes we also use the A-10, so we are not stuck to the “classic” fighter jets only. The Warthog also has great maneuverability, long flight time (compared to other jets), and an aggressive look. Additionally, it is a reworked aircraft with new sounds, a live cockpit, and many more features !

​Aircraft information:

Crew: 1

Weaponry: available but not used

​Range: 2,580mi /4,150km

​Max. Speed: 439mph /706km/h

Service ceiling: 45,000ft /13,700m


- Spitfire Mk VIII

For some special events, we also operate the Spitfire. It is the complete opposite of modern fighter jets, but we also want to show how it started.

​Aircraft information:

Crew: 1

Weaponry: not available

​Range: 479mi /771km

​Max. Speed: 370mph /600kmh

Service ceiling: 36,500ft /11,100m


- KC-10

The KC-10 is one of the most important aircraft in our fleet. It supports us during training or repositioning flights, otherwise we couldn’t cross the Atlantic without stops.

Aircraft information:

Crew: 4

Weaponry: not available

​Range: 11,500mi /18,500km

​Max. Speed: 538mph /866km/h

Service ceiling: 42,000ft /13,000m


image Our Air Shows image

The majority of our flights are for training purposes, as it takes time to coordinate the team and learn different breathtaking maneuvers. There will be several smaller and two large air shows during the year. Additionally, we are planning to cooperate with the Infinite Flight Oshkosh event. All the air shows will be flown on Casual Server, however the Expert server will be used for normal formation flights without aerobatic maneuvers.

image Our Precise Maneuvers image

1) The Tornado

It is one of our three maneuvers you will get to see at our air shows. There are five aircraft forming an arrow in the middle while two other pilots fly rolls around it. The picture on the right serves as a visualization though once we performed this maneuver, our pictures will be uploaded.


2) The Rising Sun

In this stunt, all seven pilots fly towards the audience and then flee in different directions just before the runway.


​3) The Neckbreaker

After arriving from the back, all pilots pull up and perform a looping perpendicular to the audience.


Of course, we also perform the “basic” maneuvers like a fly-over or a normal looping, but these three are more complex to learn. However, as mentioned above you will get to see them at every air show! Click here and check out our events to see this with your own eyes in Infinite Flight!

image Career Mode image

All flights are flown in the fashion of a career mode structure which generally means starting there where you have landed before. Long repositioning flights will be flown with the support of our KDC-10 to avoid spawning all around the globe.
