Now Taking Off!

American Virtual was established as US Airways Virtual Airlines in 2004 and sought to closely simulate the operations of US Airways. In 2013 American Airlines and US Airways merged creating the American Airlines we know today. US Airways Virtual Airlines, in an effort to continue simulating the real world airline, changed its name and operations over to American Virtual. We are not associated with any airline, yet mimics the operations and service of AAL. In addition, we will leverage OneWorld Code-Share partners in the near future, which will further diversify our schedules!

American Virtual attracts and is filled with flight simulating enthusiast/pilots on the FS9, FSX/SE, P3D and X-plane platforms. In simulating real world American operations, we operate on a ranking system designed to provide new pilots the experience of flying all of the aircraft in our fleet. The American Airlines acquisition with US Airways created the largest airline in the United States which means more flights for you to fly, domestically and internationally!
