Welcome to Compass Airlinessmall logo


Welcome to Compass! We are an Australian & New Zealand based Virtual Airline seeking to replicate the varied operations of a major airline. We cover a wide variety of operations from long haul international flights based out of Australia and New Zealand to the Pacific, South East Asia, the Middle East, Europe Africa and the Americas, right down to short regional hops.  We also have a fully developed domestic routes along major trunk routes throughout Australia and New Zealand. Two allied divisions, Compass Express and Compass Logistics provide regional and cargo services.

Remembering Tuppy

Chris "Tuppy" Tripp, also know as Aramis, one of the Three Musketeeers who founded Compass died in 2019.

He had suffered ill health for a short while and died after suffering a stroke.

As a mark of respect, the YM003 callsign has been permanently retired.

New Aircraft

Boeing 787

Like everyone else we've been keenly awaiting the QualityWings B787 release. It's now out for FSX (P3D follows shortly) and we've sent both the 787-8 and the 787-9 off to the Compass paintshop. When Padraig and Finnbar are finished we'll have it available as part of of our relaunch. We plan on using the 788 for mostly domestic flights, and the 789 for longer haul overseas flights, both in lieu of the B767-300 which is now being withdrawn (with some retained for Logistics ops)

As the B787 and B777 have a common type rating the introduction of the Dreamliner into our fleet will require a slight tweak to our rank structure. That will follow shortly.

Boeing 717

The Boeing 717 was our first entry aircraft back when we first started in 2001

Embraer E195



We switched to the E195 as there was no decent model for FSX or P3D. TFDi, the maker of our SmartCARS system, also make a B717. We will look at this aircraft and assess if it is suitable for an additional model worth us having available for pilots. If so we will be getting a repaint of this aircraft into our livery, although the E195 will remain the official first type. The repaint will follow the release of our liveries for the B787.
