Welcome to Zip Group


Here at Zip Group we aim to make flying for a virtual airline a fun and easy experience. Whether you have never flown for a virtual airline before, or you are a veteran with thousands of hours, we'd love to welcome you on board!

We are a low pressure, friendly and fun airline group to fly for with a very low minimum required flights and a realistic, dynamic schedule with ad-hoc charters!. Whether you fancy a quick hop in a Q400 or a lengthy transatlantic crossing, we have the flight for you.

Your flights will be electronically logged with our ACARS and dispatch feature which also rate your flight performance.

We have 9 fantastic bases accross 3 airline operations with a diverse mix of holiday and business destinations. Wherever you are based, you can operate any route!

Operating 3 seperate airlines means you have the choice and flexibility to fly a huge, diverse selection of routes. From the Highlands of Scotland to Florida's Key West and from Tel Aviv to Toronto, we are sure we have the right routes for you

For full immersion, we also have Custom Safety Demonstrations, Airport Reference Guide, Line Operations Manual, Online AI Model Matching and an automated ACARS software.

With us, you can really Zip Your Way, whether you want to fly by the book, or jump in and just fly!
