Fly UK celebrates 20 years

Posted 12 Mar 2024


In late March 2004, an announcement was made that planning was underway for a new virtual airline. Soon after in early April, Fly UK was born.

Fast forward 20 years and Fly UK has become one of the most successful and long-running virtual airlines around with its unique style and identity, not to mention its exceptional community.

Over the years Fly UK has evolved as has the flight sim hobby to the point we reach today in what many say is a golden era of flight sim. Steered by an outstanding team of staff past and present, Fly UK enters its twenties having come through its formative years, unruly teens into what we enjoy today. Fly UK has remained at the forefront of the VA space and is arguably the leading non-real world-based virtual airlines with a realistic fleet and operational schedules.

We thank all who have supported us on this journey as pilots, supporters and staff, without whom we would not be here today. 

To celebrate we have several events and specials for members to enjoy throughout April
