About Us

In 2002, with the increase in the number of active users in IVAO and consequently the increase of air traffic, there was a need for more control and organization of virtual airspace.

The Brazilian Virtual Air Force (FABv) was born in August 2002 to simulate the Brazilian Air Force (FAB) military operations in the virtual environment and to operationalize this simulated airspace control.

The first squads to be activated were the 1st / 10th GAv "Poker" and the 1st / 1st GAvCA "Jambock". On September 7, 2002, the FABv held its inaugural flight at an event commemorating Independence.

In the first month of operation there were about 170 registered, which were evaluated and fit, integrated to the active squads.

On September 14, 2002 the Virtual Air Force Academy (AFAv) was born, with 8 instructors and an initial class of 24 students. More than 200 students enrolled in the first few weeks. Since then the FABv has been developing and adding several types of flight simulator, always focused on the military. Over the years more than 300 cadets have graduated from the AFAv and to this day make up our active Officers cadre.

It is important to point out that although we are based in the Brazilian Air Force to carry out our activity, we have no relation to it.

The FABv is a virtual environment for flight simulation and non-profit. We have no connection with FAB Real.

We use software developed for aerial simulation in computers. Our platform uses Windows as an operating system (any version) and Microsoft Flight Simulator, X-Plane or Prepar3D as a flight simulator.

VA - Virtual Airline

Virtual Airline is nothing more than a group of enthusiasts who based on a real Airline simulates their activities in a virtual world, using flight simulation platforms such as Microsoft Flight Simulator, X-Plane and/or Prepar3D.

* Some VAs also simulate fictitious operations, military operations, and cargo operations.
