Welcome to the start of your Virtual Aviation Career.
Brussels Airlines Virtual was founded in January 2015 by Joeri Luckermans.
A virtual airliner that was based on the foundations of SN Virtal Airlines Group. The SN Virtual Airlines Group ( SVAGroup ) was founded on July 1st, 2001.
The concept was simple, recreate flights of Sabena in the virtual world. But that story didn't last long, since Sabena went bankrupt that same year.
The founders, whose names are mentioned in "Honorary Members SVAG " , decided to move on. Soon Brussels Airlines was born and, integrated in the VA together with the historical Sabena flights. In 2008, European Air transport (EAT- DHL) was integrated and, the name became SN Virtual Airlines Group.
At that point SVAG had the most active pilots, 625, in the Virtual airlines History. SVAG was awarded 3 awards during that 13 years. Is was awarded in the Top 10 Virtual Airlines worldwide by former Flightsim Aviation Zone. In 2001 it received the FSBelgium award for best painter and best Belgian aircraft design and, the last award received was in 2004 for best VA by former Fly Away Europe. The economic crisis of 2008 had not only an impact on the Flight Sim Community but, had also an impact on SVAG. Members dropped from over 450 tot a steady 260. Since there was not much of a change in the community, SVAG was standing still until the decision came to renew the whole concept in 2014, which eventually led to Brussels Airlines Virtual in 2015.
