This has been done in the past, and in fact there were even virtual organizations built for this very purpose at one stage. There are some pretty skilled people in the community pulling off some very cool stunts, I agree that it would be great to see these kinds of things come back!
You guys did recognise us!! IF-VAC will make a return one day when IF can better the running of an airshow event!!
But yes, there have been many airshows held in the community over the years. Just type in Airshow in the search bar and you will find many events. Many of which were held and run by GAF (Global Air Forces) and VAC (Virtual Air Show Council) I was one of the founding members alongside a few of my best friends here at IF
Also there can be no “gate assignments”, or any affiliations to a particular VA/VO for group flights - it’s a free-for-all. And of course, group flights can be created by all IFC users, not just TL2 and above.
