Mahan Air Virtual is a voluntary, not for profit organisation, that fulfills a role to provide
a structured, hands-on educational environment for aspiring pilots. The organisation is affiliated to Mahan Airline – although it is not financially linked to the airline.
Through partnership with the International Virtual Aviation Organisation (IVAO), Mahan Air Virtual provides an environment where individuals can learn about the principles of flying for an airline to a fairly advanced level, using commercially available software to create a simulated ‘virtual airspace’ that is identical in navigational terms to the real world. This highly realistic system acts as a ‘knowledge gateway’ for aspiring pilots, by allowing them to assimilate some of the more challenging aspects of airline flying but in a relaxed and pressure free environment.
At the time there were only really three or four credible VA’s in Iran but all were based on fictitious airlines.
so Managment team Decided to introduce the First Iranian Certificated Virtual Airline.
