Kent's Favourite Virtual Airline


The atmosphere here at Manston Air is fairly relaxed. We realise that real-world commitments come first and only ask you to fly once every six months to maintain your currency and standing within the airline. We are open to all experience levels and even have an optional comprehensive learning programme to provide support and guidance from a professional instruction team.

We offer a comprehensive training programme designed to help you get to and maintain airline “company standards”. Our learning centre is open to everyone whether you're a seasoned professional or brand new to the flight simulator community. We have a fleet of training aircraft and a team of real life pilots and officially qualified VATSIM instructors to support you.

At Manston Air we believe in presenting our pilots with awards to mark and measure their progress. Our fully fledged awards system is designed to challenge our pilots and provide a sense of achievement. Collect awards to show off your skills; from completing our initial training programme to flying to some of the trickiest airports in the world – we’ve got it, you earn it.
