The 1st Virtual Fighter Wing - We are an international group of like minded individuals that push the F4:BMS simulator to the boundaries of realism for which it was intended. From our extensive training programs and coordinated events, to our relentless pursuit of becoming better BMS pilots, the 1st VFW is built for the experienced BMS pilot looking to be challenged.
Utilizing the best in communication methods, we've worked hard to create a "close to real life" atmosphere while still vying to maintain the fun aspects of simply enjoying a simulation title among friends. As one of the most active groups in the community, we have limited space available. New pilots should be prepared to work hard during their IQT phase of their training as our Instructor Pilots work just as hard to provide the best training available in the virtual arena.
If you feel you're up to the challenge, please visit our recruiting page and post an introduction in our forum.
The 1st VFW has revamped and simplified our training programs. The sole purpose of our training programs is to ensure the quality of our online flights. We don't pretend to know everything and therefore our training programs are a perpetual work-in-progress, especially our MQT program where the curriculum comes directly from our participating members.
The 1st VFW is a group of like minded friends and virtual pilots who enjoy flying Falcon 4.0: BMS realistically while still having fun. Since 2008 we've striven to provide a fun and stable environment to fly Falcon 4.0. If you're interested in applying, click on the Join 1st VFW link to the left or contact us with any questions.
