About Our Airline

Aerocaribbean Virtual was founded on January 2, 2021 by a group of friends who are air simulation enthusiasts with a single goal: to enjoy the hobby that unites them. Since then, new members have been incorporated to share their time and knowledge with the rest of the team that is part of this virtual airline that operates in the International Virtual Aviation Organization (IVAO).

Here at Aerocaribbean-VA, we are serious about working hard to create an inclusive and interactive virtual airline environment for our pilots Our goal is to strike a good balance between realism and enjoyment, providing more advanced simmers with an environment that meets their requirements for realism while allowing less advanced simmers the ability to fly without rules and complex procedures every time supporting them to improve their skills and knowledge.

Over time, our goal is to become a reference option for virtual pilots looking for a virtual airline in IVAO that brings the real to the virtual hand in hand, but that does not lose the essence of a club or group of friends to spend a good time with a common purpose; THE AVIATION.

Now that you know us a little better, we encourage you to be part of this adventure...

So what is a Virtual Airline?

A Virtual Airline (or VA) is a community made up of flight simulation enthusiasts that aims to provide a real experience of working as an airline. Some mimic real world airlines and others are fictional such as Aerocaribbean Virtual as it aims to provide a balance between realism and enjoyment and ultimately an environment where you can fully immerse yourself with like-minded people.

Aerocaribbean Virtual has no relationship with the extinct airline EMPRESA AEROCARIBBEAN S.A belonging to the government of the Republic of Cuba.

Does it cost anything?

No, but some of the planes we use are paid software. Therefore, we suggest you review our website in the Fleet information section. In the same way, you fly with the plane that you feel most identified with and count on. Now you just need to make sure you have a PC, a flight simulator and a joystick.


Why join a Virtual Airline?

Meet new people, earn prizes, track your stats on flights, and earn ranks. Most importantly, it gives your flights a purpose. Being part of a VA gives you the realistic feeling that you are part of an operating airline. At Aerocaribbean Virtual we also offer you the use of totally free paid software if you are a VA registered pilot, in addition to having the livery of your favorite aircraft.



Aerocaribbean-VA Divisiones

Our operations have a varied fleet of aircraft in each of our connection centers or HUBs. The airline is currently made up of 4 Divisions: Regional, Continental, Cargo and Tour.

Each division exists to provide you, the pilot, with a different and varied flight experience.

Short & medium haul flights to domestic and international destinations.

Medium & long haul flights to international destinations.



Short, medium & long haul cargo flights to a variety of destinations.

National and international short and long distance flights for excursions and bring home memories of other cities.

Aerocaribbean Virtual is a rapidly growing airline.

Our initial investment hopes to position ourselves well within the Cuban national market and the Caribbean. We have the cargo infrastructure in North America, South America and passengers from Europe, which is why we operate from Havana, Cuba, Dallas-Texas, USA, Bogotá, Colombia and Alicante, Spain. These centers will serve a large demand for passengers and packages using our Regional, Continental and Cargo divisions in a wide range of destinations.



Our Rank Structure

Ranks are based on total hours flown using our ACARS system but will not determine which aircraft or flights you can fly. Everyone begins as a Student Pilot regardless of background. As your total hours increase your rank level increases which will unlock additional benefits (work in progress). As you fly you will also earn a salary and whilst you cannot spend it yet, we are working on some features around this.

Two flights a month. We understand that there are times when life gets really busy and complicated, but don't worry, you basically have all month to submit two Flight PIREPs or a License Application. If we do not receive any within a period of two months, we will assume that you have left the airline.
No, not currently. We are looking at implementing features in the future that would give your chosen hub more functionality. For now this is not an issue, and going forwards we can change your hub upon request.
Yes. Aerocaribbean Virtual is a member of IVAO and therefore we must maintain our membership by complying with a certain number of flights per month. You should only fly offline when the Training department requests it for training reasons. We recommend and encourage the use of IVAO media for greater realism in our operations.
All pilots start as a Student Pilot and progress through the ranks simply by increasing their total flight hours. We will be introducing additional perks for higher ranks but we will never restrict your use of aircraft using your rank.
You must be aged 16 years or older to join Aerocaribbean Virtual.
Yes indeed. You can choose whichever flight you like regardless of where you last landed and regardless of your rank. It is your choice whether you fly from your previous landing location.
You can fly on any day, at any time if you wish, you will not be penalised. It does not matter if you overrun your schedule or arrive early as long as it is not excessive. When using IVAO both delays and shortcuts from ATC are inevitable.
Yes. Diversions will happen from time to time, either due to system malfunctions or weather. You may even have a problem with your PC or Simulator and choose to divert rather than abort. Please ensure that the alternate airport that you are diverting to is within 100 miles of the original destination. If you have to make an emergency or precautionary landing at an airport that is further away than 100 miles then you must get in touch and let us know.
No, doing so may block the ACAR or result in a penalty in your payment as a virtual driver. We recommend managing your fuel efficiently and taking into account distance and aspects of flight. Keep in mind that diverting to refuel and get back on the runway usually takes about an hour of your flight, so plan this extra time in your flight plan if you think it may be necessary.
ACARS searches for a booked flight when it loads, so ensure that you load it after you have booked a flight. Ensure you fill in all of the fields accurately (kilograms and ft). Only click Start when you have fueled up and ready to start your pushback. Once you land and park at the gate you will have an option to submit the flight. It can take a few moments to appear on the website.
You can also find a Quick Start Guide for both Booking and using ACARS in the downloads sections once logged in.
Yes, there are specific departure airfields for General Aviation flights. You must book and depart the airfield as you would any other flight but you can land at an airfield of your discretion. You can even do touch and go landings however ACARS will only record a single touchdown for your Landing FPM stats. Flying GA is a great way to increase your hours and stay current without the pressures of flying an jet aircraft to a schedule.
No. We are working on this and hope to have something implemented soon. Drop a member of staff a message in the meantime should you feel like we need to know something about your flight.
Not yet. We are actively working on the airline's 'economy' and hope to be introducing more features soon. This will include spending your earnt money on perks and benefits.
We currently do not transfer hours from other virtual airlines. We only grant you an hour credit according to the hours you have accumulated in IVAO once you register in the VA.
No, our software only works on PC running Windows 7 upwards.
