IVAO United Kingdom - Virtual Airlines

A Virtual Airline (VA) is a dedicated organisation that uses Flight Simulator to model the operations of an airline. These may be mimics of real world airlines or make believe. They aim to provide a realistic aviation experience to flight simulator enthusiasts. There are a large number of VA's around the world consisting of thousands of members from different countries.

Here in the UK Division, we are pleased to support the following UK based VA's:

Freeworld Airways

freeworld airways

Freeworld Airways is a Virtual Airline for users of X-Plane and Microsoft Flight Simulator.
Our aim is to give users a highly realistic flying experience, simulating real-world airline operations for pilots who appreciate doing it just right.
All our routes are based on real-world flight plans provided by our team of dispatchers. Our rating system, designed by a real airline pilot, is based on pilot merit not amount of hours flown. This means that a good pilot is not forced into flying small aircraft for an extended period of time while gaining hours.

We are based in Germany and the UK, with a route network stretching across 5 continents and hubs in North America, Asia and the Pacific. We utilise the finest add-on aircraft available to enhance the realism of our operations.

Please don't hesitate to browse our web-site, and visit our forums... We hope you enjoy FreeWorld Airways!



Albion Group of Airlines


Albion Group of Airlines was established in 2002 and runs as a commercial airline using the IVAO platform.  Albion is divided into a number of airlines covering different parts of the globe.  There is Domestic and Continental flying throughout Europe, North Africa and as far East as Israel.  Canadian is based in Ottawa and serves the ten provinces as well as feeding into the USA and the Caribbean.  Las Americas, based in Jamaica, flies long and short haul to, mainly, the Caribbean and central/south America.  Australia and New Zealand covers both countries and the wider south pacific region.  There are two overarching airlines, Worldwide and Logistics flying passengers and freight almost exclusively on long haul.
Pilots fly contracts devised by each Airline Manager.  Hours flown are logged and income earned helps support a set of "company accounts".  Aircraft are bought, sold and modified only when the accounts can support the activity.   Albion pilots find contract flying is both interesting as well as rewarding through the opportunity for flying to a fullspectrum of destinations.  All Albion members are expected to fly as often as possible on-line with IVAO and, consequently, should be well versed in ATC procedures when they join.  Albion also encourages members to fly in group activities as often as possible; a group of aircraft flying on line in close company is both exhilarating and lots of fun.
The Albion fleet is diverse.  The VA flies Concorde, most of the Airbus fleet and a number of the medium and large Boeing aircraft as well as aircraft ranging from the Twin Otter to the C-5 Galaxy and Antonov An-124.
