Four Airlines | Global Presence | Endless Possibilities

Manston Air Group (MAG)

Built on the foundations of Manston Air, the Manston Air Group (or MAG for short) is a strategically established conglomerate of virtual airlines with an emphasis on fun. Manston Air, StratusJet, Vorona and Wayam make up the Group and cover a range of different kinds of operations spanning the entire globe. Whether it's a short hop across Kent or a larger one across "the pond", you'll be sure to find a flight that suits you.

Established in 2020, the Manston Air Group brand consists of four subsidiary airlines, with headquarters in Manston, Kent - and a number of bases throughout the world. We operate a huge range of different aircraft types into a wide set of environments and airports with varying complexities.

What sets MAG apart is the relaxed atmosphere, coupled with the expertise of real-world aviation professionals. We have "something for everyone" here; no matter your experience level, we're here to support you. Our number one aim is to have fun. Underpinning that is a commitment to strike a balance between providing our pilots with a realistic operating environment, but without imposing it on you.


Manston Air (MSE) | Kent's Favourite Virtual Airline


Show/Hide Manston Air (MSE)

Based out of Manston (MSE/EGMH), in Kent, Manston Air connects Kent to the rest of the world. Founded in 2020, we are rapidly expanding, with a fleet of over 80 aircraft and 160 routes, we have made it our mission to put Manston back on the map.

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 are a cross-platform community offering support for pilots in Prepar3d, X-Plane and the new Microsoft Flight Simulator. We have worked in collaboration with VATSIM UK and ProjectFLY to ensure that Manston Air is recognised and supported on their online networks.

We are also one of the few airlines that boast a fully-fledged award and achievement system to show measurable progress, and a ranking system to give you status within the airline.

So, whether it’s a short hop across the south-east of England, or a large leap across the Atlantic, we have something for everyone. Join our ranks now and sign-up to become a Manston Air pilot.
