We're glad you're here! Whether you are new to flight simulation or have been around the hobby for years, we'd love to have you with us!
A virtual airline (often referred to as a VA) is an online organization that provides some degree of structure for flight simulation enthusiasts to simulate the flights and operations of an airline.
Founded in 1999, Southwest Virtual is an online, non-profit entity operated by volunteers, whose members are from all around the world, pursuing their passion for aviation within a flight simulator environment. Specifically, our goal is to simulate the day-to-day operations and career of a line pilot with an emphasis on training, education, and learning to fly the 737.
As a well-established and stable organization, you can be sure that we will be around for years to come. While it is not required to have any affiliation with the aviation industry, it is noteworthy that included among our ranks are professional pilots, dispatchers, and other aviation professionals.
Simulate the day-to-day life of a line pilot and provide the most realistic flight simulation experience for pilots.
With many virtual airlines out there, including a few that emulate Southwest, we have some offerings that set us apart from others.
