A VA is an organization that simulates an airline. It has specific flights, planes and liveries. As a pilot for a VA, you fly those flights, probably get paid in virtual money when you file your pilot's report. The flights you complete are recorded in you logbook.

There are variations between VAs. Some are fictinal airlines, some are patterned after real-world airlines and may even fly that airline's current real-world schedule.

oh,and if you are a pilot is there any obligation to fly at certain times?
Does one need to download something or be internet connected?

It depends on the VA. Some fly real-world schedules. some have their own. Others let you do things at your convenience. Some VAs require flying online either with Vatsin or IVAO. Others give you the choice of online or offline flying.

Take a look at http://pacific.flyafa.com This is the VA I fly for. It does not require that you fly at specific time. It encourages online flying on vatsim, but doesn't require it. It also has its own forum.

It should give you an idea of what is involved.
