You need to make a lot of decisions before you can choose a VA or before anyone can make a recommendation for you.

 

What aircraft do I want to fly ?

What part of the world do I want to focus my flying ?

Do I want to fly online or never fly online?

What do I want from a VA that I can't get from flying on my own ?

How much realism in flight preparation do I want ?

Do I want to fly simulating real world airlines (only one, many different ones, etc) ?

Do I want a VA that restricts a  type of aircraft I can fly  or no restrictions ?

 

This is just a few of questions you need to ask yourself.   Good Luck !!

British Airways Virtual is excellent. EasyJet is another option for you.

VAs will get boring if you don't know what to expect. Even with the suggestions made above (BA, EasyJet) you may still get bored if you don't answer the  questions Vincent raised. Real-world copy or pilot driven, online or offline, etc, are important points.

 

Platinum Airways is firmly on the pilot end of the VA spectre.  We regard flight simulation as a hobby, and believe that a VA should not dictate how you enjoy your hobby. That's why we apply Open Skies: fly your mission of choice with the aircraft of choice at the time of choice. We do have a lot of flight suggestions (Destination of the Week, cargo missions, (vintage) military missions, sports missions, five hubs with a suggested flight schedules), but in the end you should be able to decide. We are offline, but several of our pilots fly via Vatsim and Ivao. Our rules: minimum 18 years of age, a first flight within 2 weeks after joining and 1 flight a month thereafter (or request LOA).

Try Worldwide Virtual. There are no limits to where and what you can fly. Once you've got some flights done you will find out what appeals to you and you can stay with WWV or move on to one more suited to your tastes.
