About

At Virtual Air Festivals, we work hard every day because we want to bring our virtual and real-world community closer together.

Developing live broadcast events, media publications, real-world events and bringing teams closer together with their real-world counterparts.

Our community is full of passion, excitement and dedication. we provide a key platform with the support of our group to help teams, big or small display at events and support charities with voluntary work.

Our mission at Virtual Air Festivals is to make the Virtual Aerobatic Community connected and transparent to everyone inside and outside the community and to host a series of media events online and in physical appearances.
