Now that you've decided to join, there's only one step more to go: just fill in the application form below, check your mailbox and confirm your registration by clicking on the link included in the confirmation email. Once your confirmation has been acknowledged you will receive a second email containing your Air-Child Pilot-ID and your personal password. That's all there is.
Air-Child does not require any check-rides or tests, however, we ask you to log a first flight with the VA's booking system within 15 days after sending in your application. We also recommend that you read the Pilot Manual where all airline operations are explained in depth. If you are unsure about what to expect inside, you may also have a look at the FAQ on the right side as well as contact VA staff or VA members via the public forum.

Important: If you already have a pilot account, even if it was disabled, do not register a new account. Instead, write to to have your existing account reactivated. In case of lost login data, please use our recovery form.

What do I need to join?
A legal copy of Microsoft Flight Simulator (FS2004 or FSX) or X-Plane (versions 8 and above) and a valid e-mail account.
Are there any charges?
No. Membership is free and will be free for all.
How is my privacy handled?
We keep your records only for the purpose of running the VA. Absolutely no data will be sent to third party organizations or persons, without your approval.
Is there an age restriction?
For legal reasons you must be at least 18 years old to be able to join.
Can my membership expire?
If you don't register any flights within a period of 60 days your membership maybe subject to removal from the VA. Exceptions apply upon contacting staff via e-mail.
Further information can be found in the Pilot Manual.
How do I log my flights?
You need one of the following PIREP (reporting) tools:
- XAcars
(available in your Pilot Profile)
- FS FlightKeeper or
- FsPassengers
(both are payware; check the links)
I would like to join but I only just started with flight simulation.
As an Air-Child member you will learn fast and get lots of help from our experienced pilots - some of which also fly for real. We strongly encourage all members to read the Pilot Manual first.
Can I keep flying for another VA after joining?
You're free to fly for as many other VA's as you wish. This is a hobby, not a job.
What's that charity thing?
