About Us

DLH Virtual was founded on September 3rd, 2013 and is proudly based on a well known German airline. Our virtual airline boasts a diverse pilot roster, with members from all parts of the globe who have varying levels of experience in flying. We are growing each day, with operations expanding to levels much higher than what we started out with. We are happy to provide our pilots with a custom kACARS and a smartCARS system so that they find filing pilot reports as small a hassle as possible.

At DLH Virtual, we make our presence felt across a wide range of operations, from schedulued passenger flights to charters, cargo operations and even unique tours, challenges and group flights tailed to best suit our aviating enjoyment.

We also offer a forum, for our members and a training academy to conduct regular training sessions on various topics.

Mission Statement

Our mission is to become the best virtual airline possible. We realise to do so, staff and pilots must work together, hand in hand as a team and this is what we aim to do at DLH Virtual. We organise weekly events, group flights and tours in order to make flying with us an enjoyable experience yet transform this hobby into a serious learning curve as well.

Yatiraj

Chief Operating Officer

An avid flyer since the age of 8, I have enjoyed this hobby like no other.
Naturally, as time progressed, I found myself diving deeper and deeper into the subject, acquainting myself with newer learnings and found my love growing stronger.
I joined DLH Virtual in February, 2014 and started off as an Assistant Hub Manager at EDDL before becoming Hub Manager at EDDF and finally, Hub Director before being appointed as Chief Operating Officer.

Vivek

DLH Operations Manager

I'm the DLH Operations Manager of DLH Virtual. I got into flying since in the 8th grade, eventually moving on to Microsoft Flight Simulator X. I decided to join DLH Virtual in 2014 in order to learn and share knowledge about my experiences. My favorite aircraft is Airbus A320. In DLH Virtual I organise flights and monitor the fleet while managing EDDL and EDDK along with other general staff duties. Please feel free to contact me if you need anything!

Dean

EDDM Hub Manager

My name is Dean and I've been into flight-sim since 2006.
It started all when FSX was released and I used to be a frequent pilot back in the day for years.
After I saw that Xplane was releasing version no#11, I stepped back into the cockpit after a while. And still, I'm a Boeing-Guy! ;)
Since April of 2018 I'm a proud member of DLH virtual. In July 2018 I became the Hub Manager for EDDM.
Don't hesitate to contact me via email, the ticket-system, WhatsApp or Facebook. We'll find a solution for everything.
All the best, Dean

Bernd

EDDF Manager, Representative - Online Affairs

My name is Bernd, I am born in Sept. 1969 and am living in Nuremberg, Southern Germany (EDDN).
More by coincidence and first ''just for fun'', I joined another Germany based VA where I finally held various (senior) staff positions.
With that appointment, I started to like working as staff in a VA, and after stepping back from my previous position,
I joined DLH VA in October 2015, first again ''just for fun'' and with no intention to join the staff again.
In the first days already, however, I mailed back and forth with a Kris a few times, we met on TS several times and due to my professional background
in real life (I am working in logistics for more then 20 years, some of them in airfreight operations and I have a degree in freight forwarding),
Kris offered me the job of GEC / AeroLogic Manager of the DLH VA. An offer, I could not resist!

Lennart

EDDK HUB Manager

Hey there, I'm Lennart, 17 years old and a wholesome aviation enthusiast.
Since late 2017 I'm in charge of the Cologne / Bonn Airport in this virtual airline, standing near the most beautiful city of Germany.
Day by day I try to give my best for you, answering questions and resolving any problems you might come up with.
That being said, I'm here for you whenever you're in need of help.
Getting more private, in my free time I enjoy meeting up with friends, play tennis and (of course) fly virtual planes around the globe.
Being here with DLH Virtual was a great step for me and why wouldn't you want to join us too?
