Notice of closure: The Virtual Blue1 website will cease operations on 29/10/2018

Over recent years, the level of activity in our virtual airline has declined dramatically and there have been no new pilots. For my part, I no longer have time (and to be honest, the interest has gone too) to actively participate in flight simulation or indeed update and improve the website. Quite apart from maintenance time, hosting of the website and domain name carry a cost of around £60GBP per year, which is a lot to pay for something I do not actually use.

If somebody else is interested in managing the website and continuing the airline, please get in touch and we can discuss how to do it. I am happy to transfer all the website code and can find out about transfer of the domain name etc. Otherwise, when the current web-hosting period ends on 29/10/2018, the subscription will not be renewed and the site will be closed.

Thanks, Geoff (BLF101)


Virtual Blue1 is a virtual airline founded in 2007, which attemps to provide flight simulator pilots a simulation of the Finnish airline Blue1. Our operations are non-commercial. All our flights are operated using personal computers with Microsoft's Flight Simulator (FS2004 and FSX) or with Laminar Research's X-Plane software.

Virtual Blue1 is based in Helsinki with Helsinki-Vantaa International Airport as our main hub; flights are operated to destinations within Finland, Scandinavia and further into Europe. Within Finland, our focus cities are Oulu, Vaasa and Kuopio and flights to these cities operate all year round. Additionally, there are flights to other cities in Lapland during the winter season. Within Scandinavia, flights run to Stockholm, Copenhagen and Oslo; some of our SAS operated flights then operate from these hubs. Other European destinations include London, Paris, Rome and Amsterdam. Read more on our Destinations page.

Our fleet of 21 aircraft comprises nine 115-seat Boeing 717-200 aircraft, one 70-seat Bombardier CRJ-700ER, seven 80-seat British Aerospace Avro RJ85 and two 68-seat ATR-72-500. In addition, Virtual Blue1 Cargo uses two British Aerospace Avro RJ100QT freighters. Further details can be found on the Fleet page.

You can join Virtual Blue1 when our pilot recruiting is open (check our news page and forums for more information). Some experience with flying in simulator is desirable, but is not essential. All we require is a positive attitude and a willingness to learn new things.

New pilots with Virtual Blue1 complete a theoretical and practical basic training course in the Beechcraft King Air 350 aircraft, after which they move into a type training course for their chosen aircraft. Once the basic training and type training courses are completed, new pilots begin their careers as First Officers on their chosen aircraft type and, as they accrue flight time, can rise though the ranks to captain. We also run several flying events and challenges throughout each year. More information can be found when the pilot recruiting is open. Further information is available during the recruitment process and also in our General Regulations, found on the Recruitment page.
