Red Flag, the largest military aerial training event in America. The call to attend is heard by numerous air forces throughout the world. Pilots’ mettle is tested on a daily basis as they train and fight with their brothers and sisters in arms from across the world.
We’re looking for skilled pilots to join up with the Virtual United States Air Force for our Red Flag exercise. By enlisting now, you can potentially complete the program just in time for Red Flag Nellis, one of the biggest events on VATSIM!
Our training program through our Air Education and Training Command will ensure that you learn the basics of your airframe before you move on to SUPT, Specialized Undergraduate Pilot Training, where you’ll learn how to fly in formation, to fly complicated approaches, and to maneuver your airframe in a way that puts you a step above the rank-and-file pilots of the airlines!
From SUPT, your final training phase is Mission Qualification Training (MQT). In this phase, most airframes will work directly with an Instructor Pilot in a one-on-one setting that will iron out your skills and instincts to make you a formidable force for air superiority.
After you have proven yourself, you will be one of the elite pilots who are eligible to participate in Operation Red Flag. In an arena as large as Switzerland, operations will be conducted in the Nevada Test and Training Range (NTTR) where your piloting skills will be tested against Continue reading
Jackson Hole has become the home to many of the world’s best skiers as the terrain is considered to be some of the most challenging in North America. In addition to the skiable terrain inbounds, there is an even larger area to be explored off-piste (out of bounds). These areas are accessed through marked gates by expert skiers/boarders who are equipped with avalanche safety gear. The terrain has not only attracted the top skiers in the world but also one of the leading ski film companies, Teton Gravity Research. Jackson Hole is home to one of the most well known expert ski runs in the world, Corbet’s Couloir.

Honouring a tradition, Platinum Airways’ Destination of the Week will be visiting ski country in January. In a series called On Golden Slopes, the very virtual Open Skies airline will touch down at four special runways in the heart of winter sport country.
On Golden Slopes builds on Platinum Airways’ tradition to visit ski resort destinations during the month of January. This year’s destinations are no exception. On Golden Slopes kicks off with a visit to St Johann in Tirol (LOIJ), a short runway airfield near Austria’s famous Kitzbühel region, where the world’s most challenging downhill race will be run at the Hahnenkamm on 26 January. The series continues at the other side of the Atlantic, with the private Buckhorn Ranch Airport (0CO2) near Crested Butte, CO, a former coal mining town now called the last great Colorado ski town. The third Golden Slope area of St Moritz, Switzerland is near one of Europe’s most challenging airfields: Samedan or Engadin Airport (LSZS). On Golden Slopes concludes with Heber City Municipal Airport or Russ McDonald Field (36U), close to Utah’s skiing country.
DOTW missions qualify for a 5% bonus if completed within the allotted time span. They come with charts, links to Continue reading
