Hello, fellow IFC members! Wizzair Virtual is a new VA, recently approved by the IFVARB. Our main goal as a VA is to introduce you to unique destinations, and have fun while doing it. We all share a deep passion for aviation, and we hope you do too! If so, hop right in!
We are lucky to have an ever-expanding mainline route network, which for now consists of just over 1900 routes, operated by 3 aircraft, which you can use during your flights for WZZVA. We host weekly group flights and, from time to time, some interesting and fun competitions. The most dedicated ones of you will quickly reach our Wizz Encore ranks, which bring exciting perks, outlined below.
Wizzair Virtual offers three programs, so everyone has one appealing to them.
At WZZVA we offer three programs:
The Standard Program: Want to be free as a bird? This program is for you. With the Standard program, you are free to fly with any aircraft we feature, on any route we feature, at any time. Ranks are to be abided by. You are required to log at least 1 flight every 30 days.
The Career Mode: Fancy being a little more serious? In that case, look no further than this program. With Career Mode, you are asked to fly the aircraft listed for its respective route. Information for that can be found in our flights database or on the Crew Center. You are also asked to depart from the last airport you landed at and this after each flight. You are here required to log at least 2 flights every 30 days.
The Ultimate Career Mode: Do you want to be one of the most serious pilots on board? The Ultimate Career Mode will help you with that. Indeed, here you are required to fly only Wizzair routes for 1000 hours. Events and ROTW are exceptions - both in the limit of only flying Wizzair routes, but the activity check as well. In this mode, you are also required to log in at least 2 flights every 30 days, however the Events and ROTW do not count towards activity. But, they do count towards flight hours. You are also asked to return to the base you have chosen every 14 days. We understand this is quite challenging, but it’s for the most serious ones of you.
Hey everybody! My name is Max and I am the CEO of the new Wizzair VA. Putting this together was quite a challenge and a huge commitment but I am ready for anything.
I love challenges and being challenged – this was perfect. But I have one very important thing to add: I could not have done it without my fantastic staff! A big shoutout to them!
Together we will strive to have fun. With 3 different programs, everybody is covered. We hope to see you soon, here at WZZVA!

Wizzair Virtual offers over a massive 1900 mainline routes from which you can choose from in our network, from the less known European cities to the Middle East desert. Come join us to fly and take part in our extensive route network. For our operations, we have split our route network in 6 parts. These consist of Wizz Air Hungary, Wizz Air UK, Wizz Air Abu Dhabi, Wizz Air Cargo, Wizz Air Historic (Work in progress) and Miscellaneous. With many hubs you can station at, it’s our guarantee that you will never be bored surfing the skies in our colours. Take a look at our hubs below!
Wizz Air UK
Wizz Air UK utilizes London Luton airport (IATA: LTN; ICAO: EGGW) as its main hub. From there, we offer many routes across Europe - from the largest and most well-known cities to little holiday getaways across the continent.
London Luton offers a unique experience, with many airlines such as EasyJet and Ryanair operating daily flights out of the airport, it’s clear to see why it’s a favored due to it’s proximity to London and it’s connectivity. As it’s not too far from London, it offers a low-cost option for those looking to spend less than normal to enjoy sightseeing or just returning home to family. Wizzair UK is one of our most popular networks, we hope to see you pilots fly this network.
Wizz Air Hungary
Wizz Air Hungary is based in Budapest (IATA: BUD; ICAO: LHBP), the capital of Hungary. From there, you can fly to breathtaking cities across the continent. From the popular Paris to the unknown Zaporizhzhya, we can guarantee you a fun and diverse route network. And that’s not even all, Wizzair Hungary also has bases in 54 other cities all across Europe. This adds on to the diverse route network we offer.
Wizz Air Abu Dhabi
Wizz Air Abu Dhabi is based in none other than Abu Dhabi airport (IATA: AUH; ICAO: OMAA). It’s also a Wizz Air subsidiary with the aim of connecting the beautiful city of Abu Dhabi with Wizz Air’s European network.
For the regular tourist, the tall skyscrapers are going to be really appealing and for the passionate of automobiles or airplanes, the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix and Abu Dhabi Air Show are definitely worth the detour. It’s best to visit Abu Dhabi during the spring or autumn, as it gets unbearably hot during the summer.
Abu Dhabi airport is really big as it spreads over 3400 hectares. It features 2 runways and 3 passenger terminals. Etihad and Wizzair Abu Dhabi are based there, along with many other airlines who regularly operate there such as Air Arabia, Turkish Airlines or Air India.

Are you convinced to join our team? Anyone who meets the set requirements we have is free to apply providing that they fly and act safely and maturely!
- Must be Grade 3 and has no more than 50% landing/violation ratio.
- Must have a valid subscription and a legal copy of IF.
- Must agree to comply with the IFC and IFVARB rules.
- Must be able to respect others.
- Must have a Discord account, or be willing to make one.
- Must be 14 year old or above.
Grade 2 situations:
Grade 2 pilots will be considered on a case-by-case scenario. Training will be provided until they reach Grade 3 status on Infinite flight which allows them to begin as a Wizzair Cadet. The training usually consists of:
- Pattern Work to get Landing count up
- IFATC practice (WZZVA is proud to announce 4 members of the IFATC)
- General understanding of aviating an aircraft
- Our Chief Pilot will provide any other necessary means to get that pilot to a Grade 3
What we want in future pilots:
Our pilots must show qualities of high level maturity and respect for others; we want to provide a safe environment for those on the expert server and don’t want to tarnish the excellent reputation of ‘expert’ flying. Pilots, as well as staff, must be welcoming and polite and must not break any guidelines on the forum. Anybody who is misbehaving will face disciplinary actions (anywhere from a talking to, to suspension to a permanent ban and possible reports to the IFVARB).
Our application process:
Upon joining Wizz Air Virtual, future members will be required to take a written test judging their knowledge of real world and infinite flight operations. To pass, you’ll be required to get 10 out of 13 questions correct to pass and join WZZVA.
Once you are approved by our recruiter, you’ll have access to our crew center. We use VANet’s Flare for our crew center, developed by @KaiM, @rebal15 and others. It is a perfect option for both our staff and pilots, as it allows everything to be tidy and user-friendly. Upon joining, a staff member will walk you through the registering process and working with the crew center system.
After that, you will be sent an invitation link to the VA’s Discord server. Once that is clear, you will officially be a Wizzair Virtual pilot!
