We believe that dedication is everything. We believe that pilots should have goals and strive to achieve them. So to fly new aircraft, you have to unlock them!


0-9.59 Hours

Cadet is the entry-level position. When you join Thai Virtual, you will become a cadet. Once you reach 10 hours you will become a second officer. Earn hours by flying aircraft. Cadets are able to fly mainly short-haul routes but can quickly boost their hours by flying the Routes of the Week!

Thai Smiles A320
The A320 is a very successful plane. A narrow-body plane that can carry up to 186 passengers. The longest service that an A320 flies is 7 hours and 15 minutes!
Nok Air Dash 8 Q400
The Dash 8 Q400 is a variant of the Dash 7, but lacks the STOL capability. It can hold up to 90 passengers and has a range of 1,100 nautical miles.

Build your fleet!

As a cadet, you will begin with a fleet of Thai Smiles A320s and Nok Air Dash-8 Q400s. As you build hours, you will unlock ranks and therefore build to your fleet! As a cadet, you can fly any route that is flown by the Dash-8 Q400 or the Thai Smiles A320!

Fly Around the Globe!

As a cadet, you will have access not only to Thai Smiles and Nok Air but also all regional codeshare flights! This means that you could fly a variety of aircraft along with your fleet and discover every corner of the world!

Second Officer

10 – 19.59 Hours

To reach the rank of Junior First Officer, you must achieve 20 hours. We believe that this jump might seem short but we believe that it is important to have a stepping stone between the early ranks to the heavy ranks.

Thai Airways Boeing 787-8
The Boeing 787-8, also known as the dreamliner is one of the most eco-friendly aircraft out there! The 787-8 can fly over 7,000 nautical miles! It is the smallest variant of the 787 series.
Thai International Airways MD-11
Now primarily a cargo plane, the MD-11 was a flagship for Thai Airways during the golden age of aviation! It was very special because it had a glass cockpit, eliminating the role of flight engineer!

Add To Your Fleet!

When you reach Second Officer, you unlock the Boeing 787-8 and the McDonnell Douglas MD-11. Second Officer lets you discover the planes of the future and the planes of the past on a variety of routes!

Unlock More Routes!

As you reach Second Officer, you unlock short-haul codeshares, which are considered 1h 30 – 3h. This allows you to discover the world even more!

Junior First Officer

20 – 49.59 Hours

The rank of Junior First Officer is a big leap from Second Officer. This requires the pilot to earn more hours and therefore become more familiar and equipped for larger aircraft and longer range flights.

Thai Airways 787-9
The 787-9 is the 2nd biggest variant in the dreamliner series. It has the longest range out of all the dreamliners and is very versatile! This aircraft is capable of flying from London all the way to Perth, Australia!

Thai Airways A330-300
The A330-300 is a widebody plane that aviation lovers sometimes compare to Airbus’ original plane, the A300. A cool feature of this plane is that it is a variant of the A340 series allowing pilots who are trained in the A340 to fly this plane with very little additional training!

Meet the A330!

The Junior First Officer is able to fly the mighty A330-300! A newly reworked aircraft, the A330-300 has a unique ability to fly long haul while having the feel of a narrow-body aircraft! It’s a real treat to fly!

Fly Farther!
