Manston Air

Kent's favourite virtual airline

Based out of Manston (MSE/EGMH), in Kent, Manston Air connects Kent to the rest of the world. Founded in 2020, we are rapidly expanding, with a fleet of over 80 aircraft and 160 routes, we have made it our mission to put Manston back on the map.

The atmosphere here at Manston Air is fairly relaxed. We realise that real-world commitments come first and only ask you to fly once every six months to maintain your currency and standing within the airline. We are open to all experience levels and even have an optional comprehensive learning programme to provide support and guidance from a professional instruction team.

We are a cross-platform community offering support for pilots in Prepar3d, X-Plane and the new Microsoft Flight Simulator. We have worked in collaboration with VATSIM UK and Volanta to ensure that Manston Air is recognised and supported on their online networks.

We are also one of the few airlines that boast a fully-fledged award and achievement system to show measurable progress, and a ranking system to give you status within the airline.

So, whether it’s a short hop across the south-east of England, or a large leap across the Atlantic, we have something for everyone. Join our ranks now and sign-up to become a Manston Air pilot.

We have a fleet of training aircraft and a team of real life pilots and officially qualified VATSIM instructors to support you.

At Manston Air we believe in presenting our pilots with awards to mark and measure their progress. Our fully fledged awards system is designed to challenge our pilots and provide a sense of achievement. Collect awards to show off your skills; from completing our initial training programme to flying to some of the trickiest airports in the world – we’ve got it, you earn it.
