Flying cargo is fun! Living the life of a ‘Freight Dog’ and operating late-night flights moving consumer goods to destinations all over the world is something many Pilots enjoy. We make it easy for you by providing a real-world based fleet of Freighters and freight-specific, short- and long-haul routes taking you to all corners of the globe. We know you’ll discover challenging and rewarding flights to enjoy.
Operations in our early days were conducted using Charter aircraft, so that’s always been a kind of flying very near and dear to our hearts. Today, it’s still an important and viable part of our Airline. As a Charter Pilot, you go where you want, whenever you like – using any of the 100+ aircraft in our uncommonly diverse Charter Fleet. It’s the ultimate expression of freedom in the virtual skies.
Using real-world routes from over 75 real world Airlines, we’ve created a way for you to live the life of an Airline Captain. Your experience can be as formal, procedures-specific and immersive as you wish it to be. And the diverse group of over 216 vintage and modern aircraft in our Fleet have been hand-picked to ensure you’ll be able to fly what you like most.
Walker Air Transport is a virtual air transportation and logistics company headquartered in Jacksonville, Florida, at the Jacksonville International Airport (KJAX). Founded in 1999, the company began as a small charter outfit operating a single-engine Cessna 172 Skyhawk, and later, a twin-turboprop Beechcraft King Air 350. As years passed, the demand for the company’s general air travel and private charter flight services increased, to the point where, in late 2019, Walker Air’s Executive Management Team made a decision to expand operations into scheduled passenger and cargo services. To fuel that expansion plan, staff were hired, systems developed, an expansive network of home bases established, schedules created – and a fleet of over 216 passenger and cargo aircraft of varying types acquired – making us the first small charter company to successfully transition into the global aviation market. Walker Air Transport operates World-wide, enabling us to offer flexible options for a wide variety of passenger travel needs and timely solutions for those with cargo-hauling challenges. We’re truly proud to serve each and every one of you – and sincerely thank you for allowing us to be a part of your travel plans and logistics needs.
As a Walker Air Transport Pilot, you’ll have an opportunity to fly a wide range of aircraft and aircraft types in our distinctive corporate livery while experiencing destinations you've never imagined.

Why Our Pilots Us
Wow guys. I've tried Virtual Airlines in the past....and I'm talking long ago. I am grateful that I heard Walker flights on PilotEdge and wondered what they were. THIS is an airline that gives me the freedom to fly what I have, in the regions I desire on a flexible schedule without too much 'fluff' (as interesting as fluff may sometimes be). There's no pressure to log too many hours, but still seems to have a good feeling of community and achievement which is the whole point of a VA. Also, it doesn't seem too demanding on logging and such - fairly straight forward. Thanks for being here, and I hope we can build our community! For more than 20 years, I've been accustomed to flying alone in my sim.
I have seen and tested many VA over the years. After 200+ Hours with walker I can tell you that this is the most awesome, helpful and friendly community I ever saw. The Staff and the CEO are great and quick to react to every issue and idea. The Interface is as modern and intuitive as it gets and you can fly everything you may desire as there are high quality liveries for most payware and many freeware planes. A great place to join and stay.
The website is well designed, easy to use, and is always adding new features. The liveries are fantastic, and the community is amazing!
Since my first flight, I've always felt like a welcomed member of the community, and I've met some awesome people during my career!
This has to be one of the most interactive flying communities I have ever been apart of. It’s full of knowledgeable real life pilots and sim pilots. It’s great to be around other people who are truly passionate about aviation.
From day one everyone has been so welcoming and helpful. I have been part of many VA's in the past but this is by far the first that has made me feel like part of an aviation family.
Walker Air is THE ultimate Virtual Airline. it combines choice, flexibility, and community to provide an unbelievable high level of engagement and quality service. I thought I knew what a VA was before I joined Walker, I was wrong. Freedom and choice are the core of the VA and the sky is the limit for your virtual career opportunities. Automation of flight processing means staff are working on new features for you, not just accepting PIREPs. An expansive tour system, multiple companies, a massive livery library, and a fantastic community: Walker Air has everything you want in a VA and more.
No drama, No BS, Just aviation!
This isn’t your cookie cutter VA. The website feels like payware, the liveries are immaculate and everyone is humble. It’s refreshing. It’s home.
The best airline full of great people who love flying, always expanding with new ideas to make flying more fun and immersive, the liveries are amazing and best of all they have tons of destinations which you can fly in the airplane of your choice.
My first and last VA. The crew at Walker are great, real passion, no dramas, and a great crew to fly with no matter the hour. With a flexible fleet and great liveries for anything in my hangar. Flying with WAT has added another layer to my VATSIM experience with a top notch automated dispatch and PIREP system to get me anywhere in the world, with a purpose, and reason to hunt that -150 butter.
A breath of fresh air, Welcoming and helpful community, An amazing website with tours and awards to chase after, A wide range of planes in the fleet list and amazing livery's to match. 10/10 would VA again.
I HAZ PLAYED PLANES BEFORE IN OTHER AIRPORTS WALKER IS THE BEST STORM IS DEAD NICE AND FRIENDLY AND THE PLANES LOOK FANCY!
Joining Walker Air Transport was like discovering flight simulation all over again. The community is fantastic, helpful and friendly who make flying a joy.
A well run VA with a great community feeling. Huge fleet and top class liveries. A refreshingly relaxed environment within the flight sim world.
I love being able to virtually explore the world and share my adventures (and frequent mishaps) with the amazingly friendly walker community! You won't find people like this in other VA's! Oh and BTW, the Walker A330 is likely the sexiest plane I've seen in a long time
Great VA to fly for! I try to fly everyday as I am retired and I have found "Walker Transport" to be a well run airline. There is always an event to fly and Walker is not restrictive. Fly what you want. Cargo, passenger or Charters. It's all here. I highly recommend this VA to anyone wanting to have a great place to call home!
An incredible VA that puts the pilots and the community first, is continuously developing and has a solid vision for the future. As a bonus, I've found it as a real safe haven of friendly people especially when that's not so easy to come by in the Covid crisis. Walker Air Transport has transformed flight simulation for the better.
The depth of knowledge, experience, and friendly help is unsurpassed!
Walker was my first VA and I'm super glad I found it! There's a lot of freedom for you to fly whatever you want to wherever you want while still being a part of the VA experience. The VA is also taken seriously by its (awesome) community and we're all in this to have fun! My flight sim experience has changed for the better since joining.
It’s the place to be! I feel so at home at Walker Air Transport. The livery is beaut, the community is friendly and it has something for everyone!
I accidentally stumbled upon this VA but glad I did. I never looked back and although I haven't been around for a long time, I won't be going anywhere. I love that it offers group flights for the major online networks, scheduled, cargo, and charter services and there is so many options to choose from for aircraft all with beautifully hand crafted liveries. This VA has made me spend more money on scenery and aircraft to experience new locations, tours, aircraft types all in a good and fun way. Everyone is family and we all share the same passion and this is a place where you have the choice in how much you want to simulate your experience in the skies. Walker Air Transport is everything you want and nothing you don't.
