Alaska Airlines Virtual was created by five friends who enjoy flying on flight simulators and the VATSIM network. Together we have over 20 years of flying experience, many of us either already holds some form of pilot’s license or are working on obtaining their license. Alaska Airlines Virtual strives to add realism to the flight sim community while also building a community to meet new people and have fun. We were founded in May of 2020 and officially launched on June 25th, 2020. Alaska Airlines Virtual was created with the purpose of use on all simulators including FSX, Prepar3D, and X-plane 11. Alaska Airlines Virtual is in no way affiliated with “Alaska Airlines, Inc.”

Will has grown up loving airplanes and got into sims becuase of his uncle who flew on FS2004 in 2010. He now flies on FSX, P3d, and X-Plane 11. He is currently training to get his PPL, and hopes to one day fly for a major airline or corporate jets.

Jackson is a real world pilot who currently holds his PPL and is currently working on obtaining his instrument rating. He plans on obtaining all his ratings in hopes of flying for a major airlines or as a corporate pilot. Jackson has been flying on simulators for many years now and has accumulated over 3000 hours.

Reece is an aspiring Pilot of the US military. He wants to follow the footsteps of his Great Grandfather, Grandfather, and Father. Hopefully carries his family’s Legacy as a 4th Generation Active Duty member of the military. After he Is done with the Military, he would like to go and fly for a major Cargo Carry or Major Airline on the west coast. Reece has also been flying Flight Simulators from FSX, XP11, to P3D and hopes to fly the new MSF2020 very soon!

Ian has had a major love in aviation since the age of three, Ian has grown up flying on simulators his entire life. Starting on Flight Simulator ’98 all the way up to P3D V4 which he is now flying on today. He has joined multiple groups and servers over the years to further his knowledge in the world of aviation, which is the knowledge of how to fly and the slight knowledge of air traffic control. He spends way to much time doing “long hauls” and flying GA. Yet he cannot wait for this great virtual airline to grow and help every step of the way!

Pratham is a teenage IRL Pilot-In-Training and Flight Simmer who is fairly close to his first solo at the moment, piloting different airplanes such as the Diamond DA-40, C172, C152. With experience flying under the SFO Bravo airspace, including flying to Class C airports such as KOAK, he is aware of how most airplanes and departures are handled over there. Having over hundreds of hours of flying the 737 and A320 in X-Plane 11, he has joined Alaska Airlines Virtual hoping to further increase his knowledge by flying and creating bonds with other real world pilots and people in the aviation industry that have joined this Virtual Airline.
