Are custom callsign names permitted within this organisation? For example, I’ve established my own ‘name’ for flying as ‘Aurora’ from another game before. Would I be permitted to use this name if I was to apply?

(I don’t meet the states requirements yet.)

No, you will be given a Squadron callsign and number to use and once your in for a while and or have done something major you may be given a personal nickname but no own choice callsigns are permitted.

European Air Force Commander Candidates are Welcome to Apply!

IFAEGAF is recruiting for Officer Candidates to fill a number of Command positions. The positions require individuals with a flare for management of personnel who are looking for something a little different than your average civilian VA. Within GAF, our leaders organise & manage deployments, exercises and day to day squadron movements to ensure our equipment is in the right place at the right time. From Air to Air combat specialists to Logistics managements & even providing Close Air Support to troops on the ground, the flavour on offer is vast.

If Squadron Command doesn’t suit your fancy, why not try your hand at commanding a number of them? Group Commanders are responsible for ensuring the squadrons are fulfilling the tactical objectives set to achieve the strategic aim.

Failing that, all applicants will be able to join EAF as pilots becoming experts in a specific aircraft and understanding how to best employ it and its abilities to best effect. This isnt your average flying, we fly across the world to assist in humanitarian disasters, conflicts influenced from the real world or fictional events and day to day movements of troops and cargo. Bored of Heathrow? Have a go at landing a C130 on a tactical airstrip in the alpine mountains of France or fly an A10 low level through the Grand Canyon.

Positions we are accepting applications for (Please annotate this once you are invited into GAF Slack):

• AOC 2 Group (Air Movement & Logistics Support)
• OC 492 Fighter Squadron (A10)
• XO 492FS
• XO 11 Sqn
• XO 47 Sqn (C130J)
• OC 3 Flying Training School (Basic Flying Training)
• XO 3FTS (Chief Instructor)
• 3FTS Instructors
• XO 99 Sqn (C17)

We are accepting applications both internally and externally with those successful being announced next week.

Yours in Service

Thanks to everyone that came to the Flash Landing Competition. You all made it so much more than I thought it was going to be and it brought back memories of when GAF was at its peak. I am going to aim to host these randomly but more often, times and days will vary due to my work commitments.

The weather was challenging with a 30° cross wind, the runway was shorter than many of you realised - mainly Pilot Officer “Haribo” Jones who decided he was going to land 50m early 😂 but we have 3 landings that I think are more than deserving of the rewards.

1st Place - @Andrey_Wing with a score of 9.4/10

2nd Place - Lt Col Murdock with a score of 8.2/10

3rd Place - goes to our newest member @AceCorba who scored 8/10

Nice job guys, when you log your flights ensure you write “Competition Reward” in the comments box & do your own maths for Flight Time.

Cheers everyone & here is to the new IFAEGAF ❤

IFAEGAF Update: European Air Force

A successful week in the skies of Europe as EAF have conducted multiple events, operational and training flights!

Advanced Training Flights

were conducted with the students practising formation flying & air to air refuelling in the North Sea area, 2 tankers were airborne from 10 Squadron supporting RAZOR11 flight of 3 and HAVOC11 a single F22. Some great flying experience was gained.

RAZOR11 & 12 on final at Coningsby, RR13 can be seen ahead observing the landing.

No.3 Flying Training School

has been stood up with its new Commanding Officer being announced internally this week. The training syllabus is being written with full training including the use of VORs, NDBs and flight planning tools - not forgetting aircraft handling in our newly acquired C172 training aircraft.

2 internal events

were held, 1 flash landing competition that can be seen advertised above & a second preplanned cargo haul to ones our Forward Operating Bases. Both went off without a hitch and e look forward to next weeks schedule!
