Virtual Airline, I used to own one. Basically in a nutshell it’s a “service” you provide for pilots, aka routes to travel and “promotions” all whilst being part of an airline.

1st of all, mods won’t close this (without an answer for your question)
2nd, very valid question,

A Virtual Airline (VA) is just like an Airline in real life except it’s in the sim. So you can be a pilot for that airline and fly for them, earn some kind of credit. They can host events.

A Virtual Airline recreates the daily operation of a real-world airline, a Virtual Airline can also be fictional and consists of their own schedules.

You cannot create a Virtual Airline without checking the IFVARB, if you haven’t done this you’ll need to this before creating a Virtual Airline.

You go over to the VA Database and you find the airline of your desire. For each airline they have a bit of a different method to join.
