How do I do that

Tell me which event you would like to take part in, I will then allocate you a parking space or did you want to join GAF as a VO?

I don’t know what they are and the welsh mountain low pass one please 🙂

You dont know what GAF is? The bottom of the original thread here has a link.

Global Air Forces is an alliance of 3 divisions, vUSAF, EAF and vRAAF. If you’re interested in military flying, there’s no better place to do it.
