David lives in the UK, about 20 Miles from Heathrow in the Hampshire Countryside with his wife and dog. David works in the Merchant Navy and gets to travel the world “to see a lot of water and the odd ship!”, he has always been interested in transport in one form or the other.
David started using realistic Flight simulator's when he first went to sea and had a copy of MS FSX on his laptop, in later years he was looking for a mobile flight simulator and in 2013 discovered Infinite Flight. He was first involved with Virtual Airlines by helping to set up and run a British Airways based Virtual Airline that was only on social media. However without a good website the Virtual Airline had limited operations. In 2015 David discovered Qantas Virtual and was impressed by the professional approach of the then team and also how the website looked and so joined as Pilot number 14 and also Training Manager. Since joining David has been an active member of the Flight Operations Team, not only in flying but also in writing manuals, running events and preparing for release of global, at the same time David is involved in the overall running of the VA, both on a day to day basis as well as future strategy.
Human Resources Director
Samuel Aseem was appointed as Human Resources Director on the 22nd of February 2017.
Samuel Aseem Ali is from Raipur, India, he realised his passion for aviation when he was 18 and he joined the Infinite Flight Community. He soon noticed Virtual Airlines, was very eager and wanted to join the best of them. While he was looking at different Virtual Airline's, he found Qantas Virtual Group and realised how professional and experienced they were in the Virtual Airline industry for over 5 years (the first Virtual Airline in Infinite Flight). I then joined Qantas Virtual as a pilot then later joined staff and finally started working as Director of Human Resources. Since then he hasn't ever looked back or regretted his decision. This is the best VA that I've found and have worked in. Mr Aseem believes Qantas Virtual has made him a very good pilot and have also given him good administrative experiences. They have everything you would wish for. You just cannot describe Qantas Virtual Group in words.
