What Should I Look For In a VA/VO?

I’m thinking of joining 1-4 VA/VOs that are of course IFVARB approved.

Here’s my banger question.

What should I look for in a VA/VO?

Y’all would say “It’s personal preference” but I’m fine with anything, like I said, what do I look for? And please feel free to leave any suggestions down below, as I’m planning on staying very dedicated.

Happy flying! 👨‍✈️

Ace out! ✌️

Sincerest apologies if this is in the wrong section, I would love to have a mod or a regular move this. Please do not close this, as this is quite useful for me, and maybe for many others who might be interested in the same ideal. Stay safe!

fun maybe?

I think the most important thing you should look for is leadership among staff. I am in a VA (not saying which) where the 3 chairmen do absolutely nothing and the airline is making no progress what so ever. You need to find a VA with active leaders who want the best for their VA.

Well, I suggest looking for smaller VAs/VOs. But it’s more your choice, what airline do you like most?
Check IFVARB.com if the VA is already there

Let’s say:

British Airways

United Airlines

TUI

Lufthansa

That’s exactly what I do! Or alternatively ask pilots who are in the VA.

VO’s are fun as well, as they can fly their choice of aircraft, with no limits.

BAVA, UVAL, and NSV are fine choices for you.

I like to look for a variety in routes and codeshares, but that’s just me.

What I look for is:

A fun and active communication system (slack or discord), active pilots, route, livery, codeshare, and aircraft variety, and an overall good reputation. This is what drew me to my 3 VA’s (AAVA, DLVA, SWVA) and why I’m still in all of them :)
