Welcome

Welcome to the Flying Tigers Group, the gateway to virtual airlines of the world. FTG is the world's most active and dynamic conglomerate of virtual airlines. We are a group of semi-independent virtual airlines that share a common database, operating procedures and resources.  This provides our virtual airlines with a proven and robust system for them to thrive and offers all of our members huge benefits.

In other virtual airlines when you become a pilot your only job is to complete a flight for the same airline. Day after day, month after month, year after year. For this reason many pilots choose to join several VAs or quit over time. Who would want to fly the same planes and routes all the time? Boring... but not with us!

This is where the Flying Tigers Group comes in. You can fly for all of our virtual airlines representing some of the best and most exotic airlines around the world. As a pilot you will be able to fly short island hops to exotic locations or even trans-Atlantic flights on the Concorde.  This isn't a free for all operation like some other virtual airline groups on the net.  We carefully choose the airlines that are represented in our group.

Because all of our virtual airlines share our advanced automation features, a pilot only needs to sign up once. Then with a single pilot ID, a pilot can log in to all of our virtual airlines. What's really cool is that you can file a PIREP at any of our virtual airlines and it will always count towards your total flight hours and rank!

This concept has created one of the most active and dynamic groups of Flight Simulator fanatics we've ever seen.
