About Us

 

A Brief History...

Albion Aviation is the latest incarnation in the long history of the Albion virtual airline which has seen continuous activity since 2002. The brainchild of influential flight simulator enthusiast Les Jones, we began as Albion Air Cargo, operating a small fleet of used freighters from Bournemouth Airport in the UK. As the fleet grew and Albion expanded into passenger charters so Albion Air Cargo became Albion Logistics, a subsidiary of Albion Group of Airlines and operations moved to Manston Airport. The following years saw Albion Group of Airlines outgrow it's single operating centre and hubs were opened at various stages in Australia, Canada, Columbia, Germany, Jamaica and Venezuela, the majority of UK operations moved to London Heathrow and a facility was set up at Tain Airfield, an ex-RAF base in Northern Scotland to provide fleet maintenance facilities and a home for Albions Special Operations division operating helicopters and specially adapted fixed wing aircraft on more unusual and sometimes covert contracts for virtual companies,govornments and military establishments across the globe, maintaining a long held friendship and history of virtual interaction with the Virtual Royal Netherlands Air Force (vRNLAF).

 

Big Changes...

In early 2015 our chief officer and several other staff members retired from the flight simulator scene after successfully managing the airline for some thirteen years and responsibility for administration of the airline, under it's new name Albion Aviation, passed to the remaining members. A completely new approach to our operations has been implemented with the move to our new website which utilises the latest version of the popular phpVMS content management framework along with various addon modules to give increased functionality, the SmartCARS flight tracking software and a phpVMS native forum for registered members.

 

Current Operations...

Our current flight operations are UK based passenger charters and freight movement, all flights depart from suitable, randomly selected UK airports flying to randomly selected destinations both regional and worldwide so there's always lots of variety... Or for complete freedom our Executive Ops allows you to choose the flight details utilising one of our Historic British Jetliners... The choice is yours...
