Joining Southwest Virtual

Thank you for choosing to fly with Southwest Virtual! We’re glad you are interested, and hope to see you in the air soon. All of our rules and procedures are available in our Standard Operation Procedures (SOP) Document. Please take a moment to read through that before continuing. As a reminder:


Southwest Virtual requires that members be at least 13 years old.


Southwest Virtual only requires one (1) flight a month to remain on the active roster.


We prefer that pilots use an automated flight report, such as FS-ACARS or FS-PASSENGERS. We are developing our own ACARS application, which should be available soon. Manual Flight Reports may be accepted on a case-by-case basis. Manual Flight Reports must be flown on VATSIM to be credited.


We require that all new pilots be active on the VATSIM Network.


Our pilots are a reflection of Southwest Virtual, and as such, we expect them to be respectful of other pilots, of online Air Traffic Control, and of other Virtual Airlines. We’re all here to relax and have fun, let’s do so responsibly and respectfully.
