Registered IVAO™ Virtual Airlines
IVAO Greece works with various Greek Virtual Airlines, which are simulating operations and flights of an airline. Virtual airlines operate just like real-life airlines and may be based on actual airlines or operate as a fictional IVAO airline.
Virtual airlines give a sense of purpose to activities within the simulation program. In most of the airlines, register under Greek Division, you will find the opportunity to fly regional, international or charter flights and participate in Local or International IVAO events.
In IVAO you can find 3 different types of Virtual Airlines.
Virtual airlines may be organizations that are created with no ties to any real world entity. These organizations are fictional constructs of the participants, who use the roleplaying environment of the group to add a sense of immersion to the gaming activity.
Other virtual airlines are based on real airlines, from major carriers to small operators. These virtual airlines tend to closely follow their real world counterparts in terms of aircraft fleet and routes offered. While there are examples of controversy over copyright issues, the real airline companies tend to allow similarly named virtual airlines to participate within player communities.
Virtual military and paramilitary organizations often operate in a similar way to virtual airlines, but using military aircraft and ranking systems. In IVAO, Special Military operations are regulated, with a strict set of rules, within the network. Virtual militaries often specialize in one area, such as naval aviation, although there are some organizations that extend across multiple areas of military aviation and sometimes into other areas such as land and maritime operations.
