• Flying the Compass - Airwego Virtual Airline Group

    Airwego Virtual Airline Group

    The year 2000, to some, will feel a long time ago.. To others perhaps not so.

    After the furore of the "millenium bug" had settled down a small virtual airline opened in March 2000 with flights from three bases across Northern England. Airwego, a slightly tongue in cheek name some would say, started life with bases at Humberside, Liverpool and Manchester airports with a quirky livery and diverse fleet.

    Free from the restraints of basing its operations on a real world airline, Airwego was the vehicle whose course was determined by the creativity of it's team. With traditional fixed wing schedules supported by a "classic props" division in the Caribbean, Vertigo a helicopter division flying initially to the gas and oil rig industry in the North Sea and a "shuttle" division filling in the "niche" to small regional airports Airwego flourished attracting virtual aviators who sought a home for their hobby.

    The "crew" should always be at the heart of the VA. Without them a VA has no life, no sense of community and honestly, no purpose. Over many years Airwego has been blessed with a loyal and dedicated crew who continue to fly with the VA nearly twenty years after its inception. That core crew have been supplemented and swelled by virtual aviators who have sought out a virtual airline where "minimum rules - maximum fun" is more than just a slogan...it's the DNA of the VA!

    Mirroring the timeline of Airwego was a virtual airline carrying "JGA" titles. JGA was similar to Airwego in many ways with a focus on enjoying the hobby and merged with Airwego in early 2018 with the primary title of the VA morphing to "The Airwego Group".

    As the Airwego Group approaches twenty years of existence (we are actually older than some of our crew) and continues to evolve with multi-platform support and with a deep library of resources we can certainly offer a solid foundation for flight simulation enthusiasts.

    Fancy immersing yourself in our "regional" schedules flying the Q400, E170 or CRJ...we got that! Twin Otter fan...no problem...fly the Fjords of Norway or the Islands of the Caribbean. Want to cruise the busy skies of Europe? Take your pick from fifteen bases across the continent offering passenger and cargo flights or maybe you see yourself ferrying "high end clients" as flight crew onboard one of our AirweGOLD Tours?

    Whether you are looking for a new virtual community to explore or just curious for more information about The Airwego Group we do encourage you to visit our web site and perhaps browse for a uniform in your size?

    You know you want to...come and "Fly The Compass".
