El Al Virtual | New You, Better Us | Official Thread

Website | Instagram | Crew Center | Join Us

As many know, El Al Virtual strives for the best and only the best. We make changes and adjustments as frequently as possible to both keep interest for our pilots and to optimize things for maximum efficiency. Take a look below to see everything that we are releasing now!

New Website and Crew Center

Our brand new website offers a more user-friendly interface, modern and flashy photos, and an easy form to contact us. Similarly, our new Crew Center looks and works better than ever! Featuring Event Management, Multiplier Codes, and even ACARS, there’s no doubt that this was the right choice!

Lower Activity Requirements

As the summer comes to an end and life picks back up, more important things come into play. For that reason, we have decided to lower the activity requirements to a minimum of one flight per month.

El Al Historical & El Al Executive

Senior Captain, our new rank, boasts a few perks. The two main ones are El Al Historical and El Al Executive. With El Al Historical, you can fly to El Al’s terminated destinations and file them for hours and pilot pay! With El Al Executive, you are granted the ability to fly to or from any airport on the planet with the TBM 930 or Citation X. Every two weeks, pilots can choose to fly three total legs. Our only rule is that they must either start from or end at LLBG.

About Us

Founded on May 6, 2020, El Al Virtual was established based upon our CEO’s dedication to his heritage. Knowing that both the airline and country don’t get much love, he knew something had to be done. Constantly putting in work day after day to exceed perfection, El Al Virtual officially became IFVARB Approved on June 1, 2020.

Within Infinite Flight, there are many Virtual Airlines to choose from. Finding one you can count on and build a relationship within the long term is difficult; however, we have simplified that for you. Here are some reasons as to why you have made the best decision by choosing us!

Our Approach

As the only Israeli VA in Infinite Flight, our goal is to represent what we have to offer. Some may take it that our country and airline are small compared to places like the U.S. with 3 mainline carriers; however, we have just as much to offer, if not more. The pride we take in representing Israel is outstanding. Seeing our flag on the tail of our aircraft soaring at 34,000 feet is something no other airline could say, unless you’re flying El Al, of course!


What makes El Al a truly professional environment is the test we put all potential pilots through. Each applicant will go through an initial application where multiple aspects are analyzed. If the applicant is approved, they are sent our pilot exam, a twenty question exam that we have exclusively designed. Once complete, the applicant will receive a PM via the IFC with their score. A passing score of 16/20 (80%) is required. If that is not met, the applicant will be enrolled in our training program explicitly built around them. Furthermore, our pilots will be provided as much support as needed to thrive with us.

Our Support

Our trained and well-rounded staff are here to support you and help you with anything around the clock. Whether you send an inquiry via our email or PM us on the IFC, you are guaranteed a response within 24 hours!

Our Partners

I work in AVVA, I remember when Zack and I became staff! (And I also remember when he left us…) thanks to that, I’m here!


I’m pretty sure VAs cannot post VA threads outside of the IFC, but correct me if I’m wrong.

I thought the same thing; however, I talked to mwe about it. He said it’s all good! :slight_smile:

Help Us Help You

Our pilots’ and community feedback is vital to the success of El Al Virtual. For that reason, @Z-Tube has designed a new survey that will allow us to interact with current, potential, and past pilots.

All responses will be read, considered, and implemented if appropriate. Our end goal is to work internally to reshape the VA we are today and create the most welcome, comfortable, and inspiring environment possible.

We look forward to hearing your feedback! Thank you for your time!

All feedback is welcome and appreciated. Please keep it appropriate, and answer all questions to the best of your ability. The bolded blue word above contains the link to the survey. Alternately, you may use the link below to access it.
