Welcome to United States Coast Guard - Infinite Flight Virtual!

About Us

Since USCG-IF Virtual opened up on February 15, 2017, we have always strived for professionalism and realism within our ranks and with all of our missions. Whether patrolling the coast, rescuing passengers from a stranded cruise ship, conducting drug interdictions, or flying through hurricanes to rescue and evacuate people in danger, USCG-IF Virtual is always on call and ready to serve. We also have a Basic and Advanced flight academy for those that need or want to improve their flight skills. We use Discord for all of our communication, as it provides the most flexibility and customization.

As I reflect on the first year of USCG-IF Virtual, I am proud of the progress and advancements that we made. Starting from nothing, we became an organization that responds to all types of disasters, has challenging training and missions, and has the professionalism you would expect out of a military organization. It was one of my greatest honors to lead USCG-IF. Due to real life commitments, I have had to step aside and pass the command to my Vice, John Click. John has been instrumental in many of USCG-IF’s initiatives and will continue to drive the organization forward, exploring new boundaries, while always maintaining the professional values that we hold so true. I encourage everyone who has any interest in the United States Coast Guard or Protecting our Borders to give USCG-IF Virtual a try. You won’t be disappointed! www.uscginfiniteflight.weebly.com

Are you guys in need of Rear Admirals?

Their Rear Admiral is a staff role, not necessarily something you can just walk into. I suggest joining them first and then enquiring about available roles.

Highly recommend this VO, great group of leaders.

USCG-IF Virtual Major Updates:

Over the past month, USCG-IF Virtual has been busy, completing critical rescue missions, such as the Nuclear Submarine Radiation mission on IFC, responding to an Earthquake in Washington State and responding to multiple calls for evacuation in the New England states as storm after storm aggressively hit. In addition, we have been implementing some new initiatives to increase our effectiveness, as well as add more enjoyment and diversity for our pilots.

Here are some of our big changes:

image Aircraft Change

We have cancelled our MD11 contract and signed a new contract with Spectre Air Group for the new MD11F. This aircraft is playing a critical role in one of our new initiatives, the Transport Division.

USCG-IF%20Virtual%20SAG


We have restructured into two Divisions, each playing a critical role in our mission success:

image Operations Division

Aircraft: C208B, Dash 8 Q400, ERJ170, Citation X and our Flagship C130J
Mission: To conduct Search and Rescue, Patrols, Drug Interdiction (Current Operations) and Planning Exercises and Events (Future Operations). This division has two wings, one on the East Coast (Florida), and one on the West Coast (California) as well as a fully-manned outpost at Kodiak, Alaska. Pilots in these wings can fly missions for both divisions for variety and mission accomplishment.

image Transport Division

Aircraft: B739, A333, MD11F
Mission: To conduct movement of personnel and cargo around the world in support of critical National and International USCG-IF Virtual missions. These missions can range from delivering troops to an international exercise in Australia to delivering 20 pallets of toilet paper to our outpost at Kodiak Air Station, Alaska.


image New Automated Transport Division Mission Request System

We have developed a new Mission Request and Assignment System (MRAS), enabling our base commanders to submit requests for personnel or equipment. The Global Transport Officer then analyzes the mission criteria, and puts mission out for pilots to volunteer to take, based on location and aircraft rating. Early feedback is extremely positive, giving pilots the option of flying a long-haul flight from Point A to Point B as opposed to patrols or shorter missions.


image Main Global Bases

Our map has been updated with the bases that we currently conduct transport missions. New routes are always being added based on mission criteria, and there is always something available for anyone to fly.


image VAM Automatic PIREP

The most exciting update we have is our biggest update to VAM to date. Through our partnership with Spectre Air Group (SAG), both groups have developed an automatic PIREP, utilizing ACARS and making PIREP filing much quicker and easier. This is a major breakthrough for us, as well as Infinite Flight!
