WELCOME TO Open Air Virtual

Hello and Welcome to Open Air Virtual (aka OAV)

We are pleased to see you and are happy to welcome you to view our site. Open Air Virtual (OAV) is a small and dedicated virtual airline which offers our members a unique online experience with a blend of flights across the world with a range of aircraft available in most current flight-sim situations.

We are a dedicated commercial and GA airline - therefore don't have a combat or military wing - no apologies! Also, we don't have a training school and expect applicants to be 'up-to speed' with their sim and software although we will provide help with our software to get you started.

Open Air Virtual doesn't have an entrance exam and we don't expect regular flights to maintain your membership, but we are a friendly bunch and would encourage new pilots to join in on Teamspeak where our pilots regularly meet through the day and most evenings.

We maintain a small group of pilots some of whom are dedicated to testing and developing different aspects of virtual flying - which means that although we operate from different hubs with various routes and aircraft, we use these as a basis for ongoing development and just for fun.

You will see that our livery carries a picture of Amelia Earhart who was an American aviation pioneer and the first female aviator to fly solo across the Atlantic amongst other significant achievements. Her pioneering spirit is the inspiration for our Virtual Airline.

Our aim is to provide hubs and routes with a range of aircraft which will build upon the fundamentals of your sim but always looking at new and exciting developments in the flight-sim world to provide the latest experience available for your virtual career.

If you want to join us, then click the register button above and we'll get you into our air.

It is with deep sorrow that I must inform you that our dear friend and fellow OAV member John Fautley (72) passed away on Saturday, 12th October 2019. Our hearts and our thoughts are with his 3 daughters and their families in this difficult time.

We like to remember John for the friendship, the company along the route, his support for OAV, his humor and most of all his just being the friendly guy from around the corner. Some friendships with John even date back to 2009. John was also one of the first members of Open Air Virtual back in 2016.

We would like to remember John in a special GA flight on Saturday, 7th December 2019 at 13.00 BST. More details about this flight in Greece later. Also, in his honor, we added the G-GAJF, Cessna 404 Titan with the name John Fautley into our fleet. This virtual plane is stationed on London Luton Airport.

OAV009, John Fautley, cleared for your last take off, frequency change approved and Godspeed.
