Published on 19/10/2023 at 07:12

In today's rapidly evolving world, the aviation industry has taken on new dimensions, thanks to the emergence of virtual airlines. These digital entities have redefined the way we experience flying, offering a plethora of benefits to both aspiring and seasoned pilots. Whether you're a passionate aviator or simply intrigued by the idea of flying, there are numerous advantages to joining a virtual airline.

Accessibility and inclusivity

Virtual airlines break down barriers to entry, making aviation accessible to a wide range of individuals with brand new SaaS solutions like FlyZold. You don't need to invest in costly flight training, aircraft, or licenses to experience the joy of flying. All you require is a computer, an internet connection, and a flight simulator, and you can be airborne in no time.

This inclusivity fosters a diverse community of pilots, bringing together people from various backgrounds and skill levels. Virtual airlines encourage camaraderie and collaboration, where experienced pilots can mentor newcomers, creating a vibrant learning environment.

Realistic flight simulation

One of the most remarkable aspects of virtual airlines is the level of realism they provide. Advanced flight simulators recreate real-world aircraft, airports, and weather conditions with exceptional accuracy. This authenticity enables pilots to practice, refine their skills, and experience the thrill of flight without leaving the ground.

Pilots can replicate real-life scenarios, mastering takeoffs, landings, and navigation. These simulations also offer a valuable training ground for aspiring professional pilots, providing hands-on experience before pursuing a career in aviation.

Diverse fleet selection

Virtual airlines offer a diverse array of aircraft to choose from. Whether you dream of piloting a small Cessna, a commercial airliner, or even a military fighter jet, there's an option for you. This diversity allows pilots to explore a wide range of flying experiences, making it an exciting and versatile hobby.

Scheduled flights and events

Virtual airlines often organize scheduled flights and events, replicating real-world routes and scenarios. These structured events create a sense of purpose and accomplishment for pilots. They can follow a strict flight plan, adhere to timetables, and complete missions that challenge their flying abilities. This dynamic approach keeps pilots engaged and motivated, pushing them to improve their skills.

Community and social interaction

Joining a virtual airline connects you to a global community of aviation enthusiasts. You can communicate with fellow pilots, join forums and discussion groups, and share your flying experiences. These interactions foster friendships and create a support network that enhances the overall flying experience.

Career advancement opportunities

Virtual airlines often have ranking and reward systems in place, allowing pilots to progress through the ranks based on their flight hours, skills, and commitment. This gamification element adds a competitive edge to flying for a virtual airline, motivating pilots to improve their performance and strive for excellence.

Additionally, some virtual airlines offer leadership roles, allowing pilots to take on responsibilities as trainers, flight directors, or event coordinators. These positions provide valuable leadership experience and further enrich the virtual aviation experience.

No geographical limitations

Virtual airlines eliminate geographical constraints. You can explore and experience the world from the comfort of your home, flying to destinations near and far, without the need for extensive travel. This freedom allows you to discover new places and cultures, virtually visiting airports from around the globe.


Flying for a virtual airline offers a range of benefits that cater to the interests and aspirations of aviation enthusiasts. From accessibility and inclusivity to realistic flight simulation and diverse fleet selection, these digital entities are changing the way we experience the joy of flying. The sense of community, career advancement opportunities, and the absence of geographical limitations further enrich the experience.

Virtual airlines provide a unique platform for pilots to soar to new heights, fostering a passionate and engaged community of aviation enthusiasts. Whether you aspire to become a professional pilot or simply want to experience the thrill of flying, these digital airlines offer an exciting and accessible avenue to explore the skies.

FAQ - Frequently asked questions

What is FlyZold ?

FlyZold is a virtual airline management system that allows virtual airlines to manage simply and efficiently their content through our simple and unique interface.

We believe that our solution will bring new impetus to flight simulation, more particularly by bringing a touch of modernity to the existing system by offering even more advanced technologies and by offering an even more advanced interface that can adapt to the majority of virtual airlines.

A virtual airline simulates the operations of a real airline or has been invented from scratch and offers virtual pilots, after registration, the possibility to make regular flights between different destinations, helicopter flights, or cargo flights.

Generally, the flight performed is recorded either automatically by a software called "flight tracker" (our solution uses for example the smartCARS software) during the flight, or after the flight directly on the FlyZold interface of the virtual airline where virtual pilots publishes a manual flight report.

The flight report is called a "PIREP". It includes information related to the aircraft used, the departure and arrival airports, the altitude, the flight time and more generally all the events that occurred during the flight.

Each PIREP is then saved by our system and can be found in the virtual pilot's logbook, where each PIREP can be consulted to find all the information related to it presented in the form of graphs, maps or dashboards.

A virtual airline management system is a web application that makes it simple and easy to manage the various contents of a virtual airline.

The functionalities of a virtual airline management system are numerous. Among other things, it allows several people to work on different pages or blog articles or even to structure the content of a virtual airline (FAQ, articles, blog), to prioritize users and assign them permissions.

FlyZold is a virtual airline management system allowing administrators of virtual airlines to manage all of their content (airports, aircraft, schedules, PIREPs, users) efficiently and fluidly, through a modern and elegant interface.

To create your own virtual airline, you need to follow certain rules, depending on the airline you represent.

In the case of a fictitious airline, you need to make sure that it doesn't exist, and that you have all the copyright you need to create it (including names, logos, etc...). In the case of a real airline, you must first obtain all the necessary authorizations from the real airline you want to represent in order to represent it virtually.

Once you have all the necessary authorizations, all you have to do is create your first airports, aircraft, grades and schedules in our virtual airline management system by clicking on the "Subscribe now" button in the main navigation menu.
