What is a virtual airline?
It is a dedicated hobby organization that uses Flight Simulation to model the operations of an airline. Many hundreds of virtual airlines of significance are currently active, with thousands of participants involved all the time. A VA is an online community of like minded Flight Simulator enthusiasts that want to get more out of simply flying between two points, alone. VA's are structured in the same way as a real airline, boast a staff team, events, route structures, fleets and much more. Have you considered what it would be like being a pilot for an airline? Then we recommend you consider pursuing a "virtual career" with a virtual airline.
We here at Cayman Airways Virtual mimic our real world counterpart, and over the past few years of operations, we have even expanded upon the real world airline to offer our pilots a unique and unrivaled global flying experience. We offer an impressive and exciting array of flights and boast a dedicated team of staff here to serve you! We offer a realistic, fun and professional atmosphere for you to enjoy.
How do I log a flight?
Once you have applied to join our ranks and become an honorary Cayman Virtual pilot, you will be added to our prestigious airline roster automatically. We utilize a software called "Virtual Airline Financial Systems" (*VAFS*). Each time you are prepared to do a flight for our airline, alongside Flight Simulator you must run VAFS. Within VAFS you have your own pilot account, pilot logbook etc. - Simply Choose the flight you wish to fly in VAFS, and it will track your flight whilst you fly, real time!
What's really cool is that if you take a look at our Company ACARS page, it is updated every few seconds with the latest position of your flight, and once you have landed, VAFS will generate a pilot log and show you how you did on the flight you just performed, then it will automatically update our roster on this website!
Cayman Airways Virtual
Since our launch in 2007, Cayman Airways Virtual has provided ground-breaking ideas that have set fresh standards in the world of Virtual Aviation. As a result of our consistently high standards and professionalism we gained official recognition from our real world counterpart, Cayman Airways, on April 12th 2009. Never before has a real world Airline formally recognized its Virtual counterpart in the Caribbean.
Our mission is to provide all pilots with the most realistic and enjoyable atmosphere to be in, and in doing so, we create exceptional memories for our pilots and for each other. Warmth and genuine caring are the hallmarks of every Cayman Virtual staff member. We go out of our way to create an excellent working environment for our pilots, as well as to create memorable experiences for everyone who becomes a part of this amazing airline.
Why choose us?
We are well aware that there is a large assortment of VA’s on the web for you to choose from, and this number is growing every day. Some of these airlines are very good and some not so good, but we are confident that we are operating as close to real-world operations as possible, our fleet is painted in our real world livery in both freeware and payware repaints, as well as our fictional divisions in some of the most spectacular schemes available.
We have a large array of flights updated seasonally and all this backed by a friendly dedicated team of staff all passionate about the airline and our valued pilots. We want every pilot to feel welcome and fit in with our "community" and not just become another statistic or name on a roster as sometimes happens with certain virtual airlines.
