Fly the American Way
vAAL is a virtual airline based on the real world operations of American Airlines. We support the three major flight simulation platforms: MSFS, P3D, and XP. We have updated AAL flight schedules, including the mainline fleet as well as American's regional partners: PSA, Piedmont, Skywest, Mesa, and Republic.
What makes us special?
1. vAAL is brought to you by the same team who run vspirit, the largest and most active virtual airline modeled on Spirit Airlines in the flight simulation community. Since it launched, vspirit has grown to over 500 members with over 12,000 PIREPs filed, so we know what it takes to sustain an active, high-quality community. In only the first two days after vAAL launched, we accumulated over 200 members with over 150 PIREPs filed.
2. Our VA runs on VAMSYS, the latest and most powerful virtual airline management system available. With SimBrief integration included, you will be able to quickly and easily choose your flight, generate a detailed briefing package, and get flying!
3. We don't believe in corporate role play -- there isn’t a “CEO” and this isn't a pretend job. We're just aviation enthusiasts who love flight simulation and want to create a virtual airline experience that is realistic where it counts, but relaxed and informal where it doesn't.
4. We enjoy access to a private, commercial flight schedule API that enables us to provide our members with accurate, high-quality schedule data. We routinely update our schedule database, and we also include schedules for all American Eagle regional airline partners. We also include a full mainline timetable for American from 2000, giving you access to classic aircraft like the MD-80 and A300.
Callsigns Prefixes used by vAAL:
Airline is really chill and supportive. Requires some common sense but offers enough freedom to where it doesn't feel like a second job. Honestly have never seen another VA strike this balance so well. Staff is cognizant of both real world operations and simulator limitations, and work their hardest to make everyone happy, while still maintaining realism. :)
