San Juan Virtual Airlines (PNW)

San Juan Virtual Airlines (SJVA), a pilot group and FBO network in the majestic Pacific Northwest, is open for business. We loosely simulate the operations of the real-world San Juan Airlines, though we have no affiliation with that organization. SJA operates in one of the most beautiful regions in North America: coastal areas around Seattle, San Juan Islands, and Vancouver Island. We have also merged with the private group Stealthworks Aviation, which gave SJVA a boost in membership, access to new planes, advertising on the PilotEdge Discord server, and much more.

We currently have a fleet of 2 Cessna 207s and 1 Cessna 172 (and a Beechcraft Baron on the way from SoCal courtesy of Keith). We currently own 8 FBOs, centered around our hub at 13W Camano Island Airfield. We also rent several gates currently at nearby airports, including CAT4 Qualicum Beach Airport on magnificent Vancouver Island. Many of these areas are under the new PilotEdge Western U.S. expansion area!

Here is a map of our FBO network and rented gates.

Fuel prices, repairs, and avionics upgrades are cheap. Pilot pay is at 65%. Several of our FBO airports have been retouched by Orbx in their PNW expansion. We currently have 6 members and are growing fast. Fly 13W Camano Island Airfield today (plenty of jobs to fun destinations for small and medium GA aircraft) and/or join SJVA as a pilot!

Here are some real-world photos of airports with FBOs in the SJVA network.

I've taken a few screenshots while flying jobs around to SJVA bases. I'm using Orbx Global, Vector, openLC NA and PNW for this region. Most of these flights were done on PE with VFR flight following.

SJVA has rented a gate at scenic 2WA1 Diamond Point Airstrip, which has been rendered in beautiful detail by Orbx.
