Welcome to the
Virtual 1st Air Expeditionary Wing!

A DIGITAL COMBAT SIMULATOR COMMUNITY

Welcome to the 1st Air Expeditionary Wing, home of the Virtual Vultures and Virtual Red Tails! We are a group of virtual pilots that leverage Digital Combat Simulator to simulate the experience of being part of a front line joint A-10C Thunderbolt II and F-16C Fighting Falcon wing.

 

We were created with the purpose of having fun and learning to fly the world's most deadly attack aircraft, the Mighty Hawg! Now, we've expanded our scope to include the world's most effective Suppression of Enemy Air Defenses (SEAD) Aircraft, the Viper!

GREEN PILOT? 
NO PROBLEM.

The 1st Air Expeditionary Wing's comprehensive training is a self-paced program that will get you from the flightline to the world of virtual air combat. Our pilots will help you learn your chosen jet's systems, weapons, and tactics. Get Combat Mission Ready, because the squadron needs you for deployment!

Formed in 2020 as the original squadron of the unit, the 511th Virtual Squadron "Vultures" is the premier A-10CII Close Air Support Squadron in DCS.

The 511th Virtual Fighter Squadron's vision is to balance the most authentic A-10CII experience with the real realities of life and time. Our squadron combines thousands of hours of in-sim experience with realistic U.S. Air Force tactics, techniques, and procedures without all the "out of game" formalities. Additionally, the squadron partners with military veteran Subject Matter Experts to bolster our capabilities.

Formed in 2022 as the 1st AEW's second squadron, the "Red Tails" bring a much faster paced environment to the wing. 

The 100th FS focuses on all of the prolific F-16C Viper's roles including OCA, DCA, SEAD, and many other mission types that make the jet so versatile.
