    Recruiting is OPEN CLICK HERE TO APPLY

    We welcome all new recruit to the 56th Virtual Fighter Wing. Pilot experience level does not matter. Responsibility, dedication to the Wing, your squadron and above all else, team work does. The most important thing is that you have fun. The 56th is a great place for all experience ranges and game expectations. One of our squadrons is bound to fit most virtual pilots. We offer the option to fly multiple patch version (version dependent on current 56th Squadron preference), and are quite possibly the only multiple patch wing in existence. The 56th VFW will continue to explore new patches in the future as they become more stable and new updates resolve in frequency. All new patches are tested exhaustively before adoption for online play.

    Our main goal is to have stable flights. To this end, it is imperative that new recruits both understand and comply with current 56th patch policy. A detailed break down can be found in the New Recruits guide available on this sites download page, or from the CO/XO of the squadron you are interested in/a new member of.

    Currently the 56th VFW is using Falcon BMS 4.33 Update 3 to conduct our flight ops.

    Any questions at all that you have can be directed to squadron leadership.


    Our only other requirements:

    • Must own Microprose Falcon 4.0.
    • Must have the latest patch to Falcon 4. These will depend on the squadron you apply for, and some patches will be available for download from the 56th server.
    • Must have Teamspeak 3 for radio communications.
    • Must be fluent in English.
    • Must not be a member of another wing while you are a member of the 56th, unless OK'd by your CO. As a pilot in the 56th, your loyalty and dedication should be to the 56th VFW. If another squadron interferes with your participation in the 56th, you will be asked to make a choice between the two.
    • Must be able to attend squadron meetings, and flights on a regular basis (at least one flight every 2 weeks).
    • Must be 18 years of age or older (depends mainly on maturity, Squadron CO's may elect to make exceptions on a case by case basis.
    • Must be willing to abide by the 56th VFW Code of Conduct.
