Message from current Chief of Staff Global Air Forces

The IFAE Global Air Force Division (GAF) is a dedicated organization of the most advanced network of military pilots within Infinite Flight. We are the military branch of the elite IFAE. We pride ourselves on our professionalism and the dedication our pilots show. "Excellence in all we do” is more than a catch phrase. It is one of three pillars that represent our core values. All of our officers and pilots play a key role of strategic necessity from the most junior officers to our General officers corps. Our emphasis is on the value and worth of our pilots, as they serve as the organizational heartbeat of the IFAE-GAF. We lead from the back ensuring no airmen is left behind while looking ahead to the future, planning and preparing to meet the objectives of today and beyond.We are teachers and mentors in all domains of military aviation. We learn from each other and grow from our shared experiences. We fly, fight and win together. One vision, one team, one fight, one family.

Additionally after reporting complete, recruiter will approve member’s profile. U.S. UFT pilots will report to KRND (Randolph Air Force Base) (EGVN RAF Brize Norton) or (YSRI Richmond RAAFB) (NEW!) Candidates will then complete a practical flight examination aptitude test. The test will be conducted by basic GAF instructor(s) and candidates must pass with an 85% or higher. If a cadet misses a question the instructor and student will go over the missed question(s) to ensure comprehension is achieved. A retest can be scheduled within three business day.

Very nice new page! Proud to be a part of GAF!


#3

Definitely happy to have you on board! And I am excited for 2019 and what we will do together.


#4

I may join. Always did like the A-10. However I do have other commitments.


#5

We would be happy to have you with us. I definitely can understand if you have other commitments. Our Airlift might be up your alley you can still fly with GAF and gain a lot of flight hours with heavies doing long hauls. Just something to think about. Cheers!


#6

Loving that new thread! Keep up the great work!


#7

I am apart of IFGN. I do want to shoot for a stunt or demo team. I do enjoy a good demo.


#8

You can’t join GAF just because Demo Teams are there. Being a part of these select few pilots means you have shown good leadership, and have experience. And a lot of it.


#9

Oh awesome, we do have a number of demonstration squadrons, however in the off season our pilots return back to their host squadrons. You can contact @DeltaMD88Fan for further information she is our demonstration squadron commander for the IFAE-GAF.


#10

Yeah me too… already working on a bunch of stuff within 47 squadron to make this year a record breaking one in cargo hauls. I also want to say a big thanks for using a couple of pics of mine of the mighty Herc 😊😁


#11

No problem @B4ND1T you got some killer shots! Definitely looking forward to more. :)


#12

This is both IFAE and GAFs thread?


#13

Negative while IFAE and IFAE-GAF are under the same banner this is the military/Air Force arm only. I can neither confirm nor deny that the commercial side of the house has something planned. Just have to stay tuned. 😶


#14

I knew that. I just wanted to aim for it. I do have interests in GAF for close air support and ground support such as the A10. @Asneed8706


#15

Thank you sir, I do my best 😊

Here’s one from this week 😋
