With the virtual transfer of operations from Berlin Tegel Airport (EDDT) and the inauguration of Berlin Brandenburg Airport (EDDB) on Saturday and Sunday in Infinite Flight, Luftwaffe Virtual (LUFVO) will inaugurate its pilot program and host a massive formation flight event as well.
As Cologne Bonn Airport (EDDK) is one of the German Air Force’s main bases, Luftwaffe Virtual’s CEO @Jan_W has organized a formation flight with all participants from EDDK to EDDB. As LUFVO is currently still undergoing a mid–term development phase, pilot applications for this event will be limited to a set maximum initially to prevent any technical issues during the event.
Additionally, this event provides LUFVO’s future pilots with an opportunity to join a closed Beta program and test available features before our organization will commence operations in early December. Note that also for the Beta program a pre–defined limit for applications has been set in advance to avoid an excessive demands.

What is LUFVO?
Luftwaffe Virtual (LUFVO) is an IFVARB approved virtual organization that is supposed to reproduce the tasks and missions of the German Air Force through formation flights and single missions in Infinite Flight. LUFVO was founded in early May and is currently still undergoing a mid–term development phase. At the present stage, LUFVO does not accept applications for any positions.
Berlin Brandenburg Airport (ICAO–Code: EDDB, IATA–Code: BER) is an international airport located 11 mi south–east of the city centre of Germany’s capital Berlin. It serves as a base for easyJet, Eurowings and Ryanair and features flights to European metropolitan and leisure destinations as well as few intercontinental services.
The new airport replaces nearby Schönefeld as well as Tegel and former Tempelhof airports (with the latter already being closed in 2008) and becomes the single commercial airport serving Berlin.
The airport resides at an elevation of 157 ft (48 m) above sea level and has three passenger terminals. The general aviation terminal is located in the northern part of BER, whereas the cargo module is located mainly midfield.
Berlin Brandenburg Airport has two parallel runways, spaced by a distance of 6,200 ft (1,900 m), which allows independent flight operations.
The northern runway of BER is the southern runway of the old Schönefeld Airport and has been in use since the 1960s. To adapt it for the new airport, it has been renovated and lengthened from 9,800 to 12,000 ft (3000 to 3,600 m). The newly built southern runway has a length of roughly 13,000 ft (4,000 m).
Cologne Bonn Airport (ICAO–Code: EDDK, IATA–Code: CGN) is the international airport of Germany’s fourth-largest city Cologne, and also serves Bonn. The airport is centrally located in the Cologne Bonn Region 7.5 mi southeast of Cologne city centre. Cologne Bonn Airport is one of the country’s few 24–hour airports and serves as a hub for Eurowings, FedEx Express and UPS Airlines as well as a focus city for several leisure and low–cost airlines. Cologne Bonn Airport has two passenger terminals which are located directly beside each other.
