• Recruiting

    The 1st VFW is happy to announce recruitment is open!

    To join the 1st VFW you must meet the following criteria:

    • 18 years or older
    • Speak fluent English
    • Not a full member of another group that uses DCS (not talking about public groups - only private ones like us)
    • Know how to ramp start, takeoff, and land and fire the weapons of your primary aircraft
    • Own and use a head tracking device (IE. VR Headset, Track IR, etc) and HOTAS (joystick and throttle)
    • You own the Viper or the Hornet and Persian Gulf and Syria maps
    • If you choose the F/A-18C as your primary aircraft, you must also own the Supercarrier

    How does training work?
    All new members are required to complete an Initial Qualification Training (IQT) course with an instructor pilot before becoming a full member and being assigned to a squadron.

    What aircraft can I fly?
    We officially support the F/A-18C and F-16C, however, our members do fly other aircraft.

    What do you offer?
    We offer multiple high performance dedicated servers (multiple servers, not just running multiple instances of DCS on the same server). Specs: i7 7700K, 64Gb DDR4, 10Gbps port. We also offer dynamic and persistent missions running 24/7, experienced players to fly with and learn from/train with, and a wing that has been around since 2008.

    Anything else I need to know?
    We do ask that you log at least 1 flight per month to remain active in the wing. Exceptions are made for real life circumstances that prevent you from flying. But the 1st VFW core mission is flying and hosting fun missions so flying should be the reason you are here.
