What is SWISS Virtual

We are a virtual airline and operate as a non-profit association; our members are flight simulator pilots. While flight simulation is generally a recreational game, we consider it a comprehensive hobby. We aim to reproduce the SWISS flight operations as accurately as possible, with enormous care to procedural accuracy. We represent SWISS on the VATSIM and IVAO online multiplayer networks.

Our mission is to connect members through our platforms — before, during, and after each virtual flight. We frequently organize meetups, workshops, and roundtables to help improve the skills of our members and expand their horizons.
