NordFly concept


Our concept is easy to understand: Every pilot of our own airline is allowed to fly any type of flight right from the start without having to have an evaluation or having passed an examination.

Our routes can be made or left out of our own route sequences.
In order to provide a stimulus for success, we offer a two-stage rating.

Ratings can be made by collecting lessons and will be improved by our flight school. You can find more information on the website of our flight school.

Which systems does NordFly use?


Nordfly works with the latest software available on the market.

Currently still in the beta phase, we are using phpVMS version 7 in conjunction with the ACARS software.

We made a conscious decision to use this software in order to be able to support a large number of simulators in the future.

The flight recording is done by the ACARS program that starts at the beginning of a flight, the flight plan is submitted and at the end the pirep is created fully automatically. All important data of the flight are automatically recorded by the ACARS and later summarized in the Pirep, so manual entry is no longer necessary.

Our ACARS program also supports Simbrief, which further simplifies handling and keeps the effort low.

As the word already describes, the operation center serves the pilots as a center. Here you will find our predefined flights that can be booked, information on collected flight hours for Nordfly, ratings, AWARDS, meta, download centers and much more.

Nordfly has a large number of liveries for a wide variety of aircraft types and software manufacturers.

Nordfly has its liveries created almost exclusively by professional painters; this fee-based variant enables us to provide liveries from all common manufacturers.
