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.xyz

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.

  • Must be a grade 2 pilot or higher.
  • Must be able to maintain activity of 1 flight per 30 days.

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.
