virtualBlue | Fly the Blue Skies | IFOps released!


Welcome aboard VirtualBlue! We are the most realistic virtual airline for Infinite Flight, simulating the operations of the real-life airline JetBlue Airways. With our extensive routes database, and our custom made website, we offer an ultra realistic flying experience for our virtual pilots. Our crew have access to a vast range of tools to build flight plans, log flights and increase their flying knowledge. VirtualBlue is the perfect airline for pilots looking to take their Infinite Flight experience to the next level. Get ready to fly the same routes and procedures that real jetBlue pilots do!

To provide our pilots with an ultra realistic and professional virtual airline experience.

VirtualBlue is proud to have our own custom designed and built website on the phpVMS platform. Unlike most virtual airlines, we do not use free website hosting platforms, we don’t use pre-made templated designs, we do not use website builders, and we do not store or log routes in a Google Spreadsheet. Our website design is 100% unique and made just for VirtualBlue. linkicon Visit out our website

VirtualBlue places an emphasis on flying realistic flight plans. It is expected that all our pilots will fly a real world JetBlue flight plan which includes following SIDs, STARs and all other flight/airport procedures. We recommend for our pilots to utilize websites such as FlightAware, SimBrief and FlightRadar 24 to get flight plans and prepare their flights.

SIDs and STARs
virtualBlue uses all real world flight plans and IFR procedures (called SIDs and STARs) at all the airports we service. The picture below depicts one of the STAR and ILS approaches to one of our largest focus cities, KBOS.

Flight Plans
virtualBlue has amazing hub managers to create realistic flight plans, just for you. On our website, the pilot brief of a certain route will give you a suggested flight plan, departure times of the real flight, distance, METARS, etc.

We also recommend for our pilots to use 3rd Party apps to enhance their flying experience in Infinite Flight.linkicon Check out our favorite 3rd Party apps for Infinite Flight.

VirtualBlue University is a training resource for new crew members who may not be as familiar flying real world flight plans, or flying with SID/STAR procedures. Our series of training videos help new pilots learn the basics of airline style flying and reading IFR Plates (charts).

The VirtualBlue team is dedicated to maintaining a community of professional Infinite Flight pilots.

Crew Activity Requirement

We require our pilots to fly at least 1 flight every 30 days. However we encourage all crew members to be more active than required to take full advantage of the resources we provide.

We do understand our pilots have busy schedules, and may not be able to fly on a monthly basis, or sometimes do not subscribe to Infinite Flight on an annual basises. If a pilot knows they will be inactive for an extended period of time they may request for their account to be placed on inactive status, so their account is saved for their return.

We are currently accepting pilot applications. Please ensure you meet the minimum requirements.

  • Must be a grade 2 pilot or higher.
  • Must be able to maintain activity of 1 flight per 30 days.
  • Must be able to use a detailed flight plan, following SIDs, STARs, and ILS approach procedures. (Or willing to learn how to fly proper procedures using IFR Charts.)

Please contact @jetPro (and/or add myself in as well if you like) We had a bunch of apps that didn’t have valid IFC accounts.

Pilot Applications
All pilot applications have been reviewed. Welcome to our new pilots!

For those of you who were not accepted and are wondering why: Most likely it is because I could not find the IFC username you registered with. There were several applications with invalid IFC usernames. You may re-apply with the correct username if you wish.

Slack is a communications app that allows all the pilots of vB to communicate with eachother :)

I’ve just filled in the application form on your website, and the email you receive tells you to send your grade table to @Eighty, however, I notice he hasn’t been on since September; is he the right person to send it to?

February Update

  • In Flight Operations is finally here on iOS!!

Get the virtualBlue concept/designed PIREP logging app In Flight Ops app by John Goering for FREE in the iOS App Store today!
Make sure to leave a review and rating for @epaga! IFO will help us validate PIREPS, work with pilots to improve their skills and compete to see who’s got the best landing on a given flight! See the example PIREP below to check it out!

As of Monday 2/11/19, all virtualBlue pilots using iOS will be required to submit logs via In Flight Ops to our slack validation channel.

Android pilots, sit tight and keep submitting your logs via logbook screenshot for now. We will keep you updated on John’s progress with IFOps. So far the response has been great thru the beta testing and initial release. We’re very hopeful and thinking that there will indeed be an android version down the line! Stay tuned for more!

Make sure to get yourself a gate at terminal C for the flyout!
