On 25th October 2009, Jan Tore and Anders opened the doors for our first version of Virtual Norwegian. Today, 10 years later, we are still standing strong. We have included Even to our team, mainly as our flight logger developer, but also as a web developer.

We could not have done this if it wasn't for all of you virtual pilots who has helped us by flying, being a community, submitting new ideas and a lot more. Thanks to you!:)


Throughout these 10 years, we have used phpVMS and a couple of scratch built systems made by ourselves, including our very own flight logger: VNPC.

We had our hopes up to release our next (and final release) system on our 10 years anniversary, but unfortunately we didn't get time to complete it by then.

Our new system will be less dependent on us, and instead getting briefings from SimBrief (we will of course still be free to use - just like SimBrief!), but to have updated routes you must unlock AIRACs in SimBrief yourself.

Our PPS CrewBriefing will also disappear, but instead you will see a brand new Lufthansa Lido CrewBriefing - just like Norwegian went to!

(A preview of our new system can be found at If you can find yourself in the roster there, you can log in and test it out already now)


Throughout these 10 years, you have submitted more than 255,000 flights, making an average of ~25,000 flights a year, or ~70 flights every day for 10 years. Again, thanks to everybody who has made Virtual Norwegian what it is:)



Best wishes,

Virtual Norwegian Staff
