Welcome to the World of Opportunities where Now we can all fly,

brought to you by

the brand new Wizz Air Virtual

Wizz Air Virtual is a mainly European, Low-Cost Airline in the world of Infinite Flight trying to mimic the real world operations of Wizz Air and Wizz Air UK, utilising their fleet of Airbus A320 and A321 aircraft. We are also offering the opportunity for our members to honour the operations of the late Malév and SkyEurope airlines, have fun flying around with our GA Club as well as to try out our new addition, Budapest Cargo, which will serve as our brand new cargo division.

Wizz Air Virtual was founded by @Jeno_Farkas in August 2017 and received its IFVARB Approved status in September 2017 . Wizz Air Virtual started its operations during the pre-global times of Infinite Flight in the London, Amsterdam and Paris regions. After the release of Global, Wizz Air Virtual made an attempt to gather all the route and fleet details of the real world Wizz Air to mimic its operations in the skies of Infinite Flight.

Wizz Air is a Hungarian airline and there’s only one other Hungarian Airline livery present in Infinite Flight: Malév (1946-2012) on the Q400. Malév has ceased its real life operations in 2012 , but as we are mimicking a Hungarian airline, we felt the need to carry on the legacy of the Hungarian Flag Carrier to keep it alive in the Infinite Skies. The same reason led to the addition to our second legacy airline: SkyEurope Airlines (2001-2009), the Slovak low-cost airline. Although SkyEurope has no livery in Infinite Flight, their original routes fit nicely into the existing route network of Wizz Air Virtual.

Wizz Air, in real life (founded in 2003) is a Hungarian low-cost airline with its head office in Budapest, Hungary. The airline serves many cities across Europe, Israel and the United Arab Emirates.
It has the largest fleet of any Hungarian airline, although it is not a flag carrier (it was Malév, until it ceased operation in 2012) . Wizz Air currently serves 42 countries and has the second lowest CASK (cost per available seat km) among European airlines.

Wizz Air UK has been announced in November 2017 as Wizz Air’s British division to be based at London Luton and taking advantage of a number of take-off and landing slots acquired from Monarch Airlines when the latter entered administration in 2017. It was expected that the airline will launch operations in March 2018 using British registered aircraft. Wizz Air UK has started to take over the flights to the UK that were previously operated by Wizz Air.

Wizz Air and Wizz Air UK operates a fleet which consists of Airbus 320s and Airbus A321s with a future delivery of Airbus A321NEOs.

MALÉV Ltd. (Hungarian: Malév Zrt.), which did business as MALÉV Hungarian Airlines (Hungarian: Magyar Légiközlekedési Vállalat , abbreviated MALÉV , pronounced [ˈmɒleːv]), was the flag carrier of Hungary from 1946 until 2012. Its head office was in Budapest, with its main hub at Budapest Liszt Ferenc International Airport. The airline flew to over 50 cities in 34 countries with a fleet of 22 aircraft. Malév joined the Oneworld alliance on 29 March 2007. On 3 February 2012, Malév ceased operations and on 14 February 2012 was declared insolvent by the Metropolitan Court of Budapest.

SkyEurope Airlines was a low-cost airline headquartered in Bratislava, with its main base at Bratislava Airport in Bratislava, Slovakia, and another base in Prague. 2007 marked a year of growth and change for SkyEurope. The airline opened a base at Vienna International Airport in March 2007, placing two new 737-700s operating sixteen routes. In October 2007, SkyEurope closed its hubs in Kraków and Budapest, thus reallocating its aircraft to the hubs in Prague and Vienna.

The carrier filed for bankruptcy on 31 August 2009 and suspended all flights on 1 September 2009.

The airline operated short-haul scheduled and charter passenger services.

We have tried many Virtual Airline Management Systems and options to find the one that is the best for us to be able to accommodate everything we wanted to do and we have failed big countless times. These failures were due to host issues or incomplete installers or discontinued php support.

After months of work and excessive testing, we finally made our choice and managed to make our VMS to work. It is based on phpvms 5.5.2 with a fully customised (and therefore unique) Mark Swan CrewCenter skin and a handful of useful simpilotgroup modules and we named it WizzCrew.

Mainstream


Our mainstream schedule of over 1500 flights, serving 140 airports are mimicking the real world operations of Wizz Air and Wizz Air UK, based on their flights’ schedule between April and July 2019. We are planning to keep our databases up to date by following a 6 months update interval. Our pilots are required to book their flights and file one PIREP every 14 days to remain active in WizzCrew. For a little added realism, WizzCrew will only allow pilots to only fly from their last arrival airport.

Legacy

1567627461876
Under Legacy Operations, Wizz Air Virtual Pilots are able to fly 400 discontinued Wizz Air routes, 40 Malév routes with the Q400/CRJ2 as well as 100 SkyEurope routes (based on a timetable flyer from 2005) with the B737BBJ.

Malév routes

Routes Total: 25181 miles | Routes Average: 630 miles

Malev

SkyEurope routes

Routes Total: 59709 miles | Routes Average: 597 miles

Legacy Operations and Discontinued Routes extended our mainstream operations with over 500 additional routes to serve over 20 additional airports.

Malév Aero Club - The Wizz GA Club

malev-1-logo-png-transparent
Having fun is a must at Wizz Air Virtual!
While flying a jetliners over Europe is amazing, sometimes we all need to get a bit away from “work”. Our GA Club (using the Malév Aero Club name) gives everyone the opportunity to join fellow Wizz Air Pilots in some short, fun or even challenging flights using our GA fleet, featuring the C172, C208, C750, SR22, TBM9 and the new CC19.

Cargo

budcargo
Our new Cargo Operations, named Budapest Cargo, will give our pilots access to the A332 at start, with future plans of adding more cargo-only airframes to our operations. We are currently designing and re-designing a whole set of routes to make them available for cargo-only operations providing a wide variety of medium, long haul and ultra-long haul routes.

Budapest Cargo routes

To Be Announced


We are also proud users and supporters of John Goering’s (aka @epaga) In-Flight Operations app and we require our pilots to provide IF-O reports after every Wizz Air Virtual flight. We use the reports generated by IF-O during the PIREP validation as well as add extra infromation into our system. For example, landing rates provided by IF-O help us to monitor pilot performance as well as create in-house competitions with future plans for hosting Community Landing Competitions as well. We also highly recommend our members to use In-Flight Assistant as well for the best possible flight experience!

Hub map

Wizz%20Virtual%20HUBS

Pilots can choose their HUB during their registration.
The preferred/selected hub does not limit any pilot to fly routes from different hubs.

In WizzCrew, we have over 2100 routes serving over 160 airports.

Wizz Air and Wizz Air UK flights follow real world schedules with days of operation, departure times and aircraft registration assignment.

Discontinued routes are operational 24/7 and can be flown with either the A320 or the A321.

Malév routes for the Q400 are operated on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays while the CRJ2 routes are operated on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. For Malév flights, Sunday is the only day when original Q400 routes can be flown on the CRJ2, but the Q400 can only fly on routes that were flown on the Q400.

SkyEurope routes follow a timetable from 2005 with assigned days of operations and departure times.

GA Club operates in a career waiver mode which allows the Club members to fly together at random locations just to enjoy GA flying as well as to discover beautiful scenery.

Budapest Cargo route network currently consists of flights between any airports served by Wizz Air Virtual. A proper route network is currently being worked on to include more medium haul as well as long and ultra long haul flights using a bit more realistic approach.

To Be Announced

*&**Liveries and aircrafts are subject to change

Our rank system is extremely simple.

New pilots of Wizz Air Virtual start their virtual pilot career on the rank of Wizz Cadet and are able to fly any of our A320 routes straight away.

Afterwards, 3 logged flight hours will give them access to the A321 and all the A321 routes.
This means access to over 2000 flights.

18 hours of logged flight time would give all of our pilots access to our Legacy Operations and access to an addition 140 flights.

From the rank of First Officer, Budapest Cargo routes also become available. Getting in the seat of a cargo aircraft might seem to be hard to achieve however we do wish to focus on Wizz Air operations as our main priority and allowing Legacy and Cargo ops as an additional extra.

Rank details
Rank Title Minimum Hours Pay Rate/Hour Can Fly
Wizz Cadet 0 $18/hr A320
Junior Flight Officer 3 $24/hr A321
Flight Officer 9 $27/hr All the aircraft above
Senior Flight Officer 18 $30/hr DH8A, CRJ2, B737
Junior First Officer 36 $40/hr All the aircraft above
First Officer 60 $45/hr A332*
Senior First Officer 100 $50/hr All the aircraft above
Captain 150 $75/hr All the aircraft above
Senior Captain 250 $100/hr All the aircraft above

*subject to change

Our Rank System has been designed to be able to accommodate any future partnerships and to separate different airframes into our existing rank structure. This means that pilots on higher ranks could get instant access to any future partner routes/airframes and gain more hours to access airframes assigned to higher ranks.


You might wonder now: Where is the Staff section?

At Wizz Air Virtual we do not operate the usual staff or c-style management system.

Every member of Wizz Air Virtual is part of the family and everyone matters the same,
regardless of ranks and positions.

Members are either Pilots or Staff.

No other specific roles.

Depending on the level of contribution, Staff can get different levels of access to different parts of the day-to-day operations of Wizz Air Virtual.

I joined WizzAir a week ago 7/11 I have flown in a handful of other VA’s they all offer something different I was a little sceptical about joining another as I didnt think there was much more you could do.

Using the 3rd party App IF operations really has made it more interactive

‘Landing ratings’ and ‘fuel usage’ gained by posting your (IF operations report) makes for good competition! and the ‘cash made’ is a brilliant incentive to fly.

The routes are brilliant and the emphasis to fly the route in real time as it would in real life operation just adds that little more realism.

Thank you for the kind words, @Jamie_Firth! We are glad to have you on board! :)

Great job guys keep it up! Do I need pro to apply?

Thank you!

Re: Pro
It would be really ideal to be fair. Regions does not really work anymore and pro is the best way to experience Infinite Flight at its best!

Regional routes have been removed when Global has been released and we only used them for our GA Club afterwards but as the GAC is now unlimited, none of those routes made it into WizzCrew.
