Our Ranks

Rank Philosophy

At Redwood Virtual we don't want to make our pilots wait to fly the aircraft they want to fly; however, we want our pilots to get acclimated to the Redwood system in our flagship airlines - Alaska and Virgin America. Our rank structure allows for quick promotions and the availability of more and more aircraft, and routes. We value and recognize our pilots' prior flying experience so we allow newly-hired pilots to transfer in up to 30 hours of documented flight time from other virtual airlines, regardless of whether it was on or off-line flying time, and join Redwood Virtual at the rank of Regional Captain.
