Our Operations

We set up our HQ in Budapest (LHBP), just like the real-world Wizz Air, with additional Hubs around Europe. Our aim is to mimic the operations of Wizz Air in the world of Infinite Flight as realistically as we possibly can.

Our operations currently consist of two options with a possibility of further extensions:

1. Wizz Air Airline operations
This is the most important part for us as a VA. We operate routes inbound and outbound from our HQ and Hubs, mainly in Europe, reflecting the real world operations of Wizz Air.

2. GA Club
Taking into account the need of certain number of landings and XP to maintain or to reach higher grades in IF live, we decided to offer a facility for our members with the foundation of our GA Club with a base of operation at Southampton (EGHI), which now has been extended to Budapest (LHBP), although flight time of GA Club operations will not count toward any individual’s flight records (*subject to change depending on demand). The GA Club itself is an addition to the overall VA experience (most real-life pilots fly GA aircrafts in a Club or as an individual in their free time).

3. Tours
We have plans for multi-leg Tours outside of normal operations, which will give our pilots the opportunity to fly around the world in a Wizz Air aircraft.

All our operations, including the GA Club, fully supported in Infinite PAX as an additional extra.

Our Fleet

The real-world Wizz Air operates its routes using Airbus A320 and A321 aircrafts. According to online sources, Wizz Air has 86 aircrafts in its fleet. We are managed to add these aircrafts into our VAM2.6.2 based Crew Centre, with their real world registrations. As an addition to this 86 aircrafts, we have also integrated an additional 200 aircrafts with fictional registrations to provide 100% coverage to our pilots at any time they wish to fly one of Wizz Air’s routes, especially as our Crew Centre simulates aircraft wear, which, after reaching a certain aircraft condition level, sends the aircraft into simulated maintenance leaving pilots stranded at their last destination.

Infinite Flight currently have the latest Wizz Air livery for the Airbus A320 only, therefore the A321 operated routes to be used with a gereric A321 aircraft. Hopefully, in the near future, FDS will add the Wizz Air livery to the A321 as well. If you are willing to support this request, please vote here.

Our GA Club has access to the Cessna 172, Cessna 208 generic, Cirrus SR22 GTS generic and the Cessna Citation X.

Further details of our fleet can be found here.

Our Routes

Wizz%20Air%20Routes

We currently have over 1100 flights included in our Crew Centre, based on all the routes we could find on Wizz Air’s official website. These routes can be found here.

With over 144 destinations, from Europe to Israel and the United Arab Emirates, you will have Infinite opportunities from short haul flights to medium haul ones.

We are currently working on all the integrated routes to have proper, Infinite Flight supported flight and fuel plans, with real world flight numbers and departure times, to make the experience as close to the real Wizz Air flights as we possibly can which could possibly result in more routes with different departure times. Thanks to the time system of Infinite Flight, the simulation time can be adjusted to match the local time of your departure giving you the best possible flight experience no matter what time of the day you are able to fly.

Communication and Social Media

Our main channel of communication is the Infinite Flight Community, through our new official thread.

  • Slack, Discord - for team communications (invitations will be sent out after accepted membership applications)

Very cool, congrats! Do you guys have a website?

Best of luck to you, but where’s all the details? Website, careers opportunities, unique points and fleet aircraft? It’s all missing and you need it here to lure folk in buddy!

I am in, Although I am already a member of Virtual Airline.

That’s ok - i’m part of BAVA and the COO at WizzAir, as long as you dont forget about one of the VA’s and you distribute your time across them evenly there’s no problem.

Accidentally the thread went live before I have finished editing as a result of a wrong key combo. All the details are there now. :D

That won’t be an issue, the requirements aren’t really strict. ;)
