The Virtual Airshow Council is a non-profit virtual organization established in late 2018 on the mobile flight simulator Infinite Flight. Over the span of two years, the Virtual Airshow Council has grown tremendously and has established its venue within the flight simulator community.

The mission we strive to achieve here at the Virtual Airshow Council is to simulate the U.S. Airshow Season virtually and realistically. Our team strives to create a platform for users who share a common passion for the airshow industry, by realistically recreating displays to every last detail, and utilizing all available resources to create the most accurate simulation.

  • The Virtual Airshow Council does not operate on a route based system, instead we operate under the free flight principle. Pilots who join are not required to log flights, any flight may be flown in correspondence with your career.

  • Upon entry, pilots may request to join any established display team if they are hiring.

  • Pilots are allowed to create their own solo aerobatic display upon entry, staff asks that the pilot provide exceptional planning for the display before performing publicly.

  • Any aircraft may be used in the organization

  • VAC is created to realistically simulate the US & Canadian Airshow season, majority of the performers within our database are North American. We will accept Euro and International performers as well but these performers will rarely make appearances in North American Airshows for realism purposes.

  • Majority of our performances are simulating real life aerobatic displays and will be dispatched to the corresponding airshow locations based on their real life counterparts.

  • Teams/displays that are realistically simulated in game are dispatched to the real life airshow sites based on their display schedules. If the team is somewhere in real life, we will fly there too.

A I R S H O W S

The Virtual Airshow Council operates with the goal to simulate the airshow season in North America. Featuring show sites from the metropolitan San Francisco, CA to the beach town of Ocean City, Maryland. VAC provides the highest quality entertainment for the community; live narration, music and sometimes real life audio to flying coordination! Each event is unique in its own way and is truly a great way to bring the community together.

Our program collects members from around the world and allows everyone to collectively educate one another. We are looking for the best of the best within the Infinite Flight Community, the “Top Gun” pilots. At every show, each performer demonstrates his/her aerobatic skill through a unique, and difficult aerial demonstration. With such needed skill and overall excellence, our pilots are the best in the virtual field.

Aerobatics is an extreme sport that requires constant awareness, aircraft type knowledge, and great hand-eye coordination. After being enrolled in VAC aerobatics programs, our pilots learn to better their skills through this extreme sport, and better themselves in every aerobatic performance.

As Virtual F-22 Demo Team Commander, I aim to bring the same air power, professionalism and excellence as the real counterpart right to your screen. I’ve been working hard with the rest of my team to bring a good show in 2020 and inspire those flight simmers wishing to get out into flying and get after putting their passion for aviation towards something better. As my final year as Commander of the first Virtual F-22 Raptor Demonstration Team begins, only the best will be shown from us as we kick off the new decade, as we head to 3 international airshows this season, and begin a transition towards the new. See you in the skies!

By the way, we practice at Langley on the Casual Server every now and then. Be sure to keep an eye on the @virtualraptordemo IG account!

I was there tagging along with you guys. I had no idea you existed! I randomly spawned at el Centro as “BOSS” hoping to practice my own blue angel profile, and there you were. What are the chances?!

Sorry if I got in the way! Very impressed by the timing of the maneuvers, the profile etc. Solos were great too!

New to the forum but I am a grade 4, most of my hours in the F-16. I’m a real life student pilot and an avid observer of military aviation and the Blues especially.

Hope I can join you guys some day!

best,
