IVAO United Kingdom and Ireland - 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!
