    My absolute favorite virtual airline! The best things with UKv are the massive amount of schedules to fly (from hundreds of airlines) and that you have the freedom to fly any plane and livery you want. This is perfect for me as I like to fly classic planes like the MD80, B727 and DC6 now and then. One other thing that stands out are the tours (for both GA and airliners) which are exchanged two times a year. One last thing, the staff are super great and the Discord server is friendly and active. I can highly recommend this VA!

    Well the reviews here reflect my thoughts and having been a part of the flight simming world for a couple of decades, I needed to show my support for what has become to me... the best Virtual Airline I have ever come across. In my experience I have spent some time with other, sometimes better known VA's but they do not come close to the experience that this VA provides. For me the draw to a VA is the sense of purpose it gives to your flying experience and UK Virtual does this in an abundance, with an enormous catalogue of airlines, schedules and tours covering a wide variety of aircraft over all platforms at your disposal. But this VA goes way further than that, this is a community and a very friendly one. Offering support for every topic in a very welcoming environment, add to that the competitions and events coupled with live chat , screenshot galleries etc on Discord. It is a very friendly, inclusive and comprehensive VA that continues to evolve, with the pilots interests at heart. It is clear that a great deal of effort goes into this VA all the time.... but for me, after many years of trying to find the perfect VA, my search stopped when I found UKVirtual. It is everything a virtual pilot could wish for..... and I cant recommend it enough! Blue Skies :)

    I've been with several virtual airlines over the years, but UK virtual has to be the best. It offers flexibility to fly almost any aircraft you can imagine, emulating real world routes, a hugely supportive membership, and all the latest flight sim news via their discord channel. Regular group flights, frequent competitions with great prizes. It supports every simulation platform and is fully integrated with Simbrief. Its so easy, pick a route, go to Simbrief and generate your OFP, load it into the ACARS tracker, and head to the flight deck. Fly on line or off, chat with fellow pilots via discord during your trip, it has everything. In my view, UK Virtual is the best VA out there. Join! you won't regret it. Drew.

    Having flown with a number of virtual airlines over the years, I found myself repeatedly getting bored of always flying the same livery and routes after a while. UKVirtual is a much better solution for me because it isn't really a single airline like most VAs (although you can certainly treat it as such) - it's a tool to fly for any airline I want to, any time I like - while still accruing pilot hours for my own profile. The flight possibilities are almost endless due to the number of airlines schedules and routes they have in their database: one day I can be flying a BA shuttle from EGNT to EGLL, the next I'm in an MD-80 pretending it's 1995 again... in summary the tooling on the website is excellent, the staff are quick to respond to any issues and the flights + tours are constantly kept fresh and interesting. Highly recommended.
