79vRAF is a group located in Northern Europe and North America that come together on a regular basis to ‘fly’ in flight simulators online. We mainly play IL2 Sturmovik Battle of Stalingrad (BoX) series Monday, Thursday and Sunday evenings – GMT time. We are taking part in a campaign with other squadrons on Monday evenings and at other times can be found in different servers – predominantly Finnish Virtual Pilots. EAF also has it’s own IL2 dedicated server for training purposes.
79vRAF was formed in 2003, starting off in Microsoft Combat Flight Simulator 1, progressing through the CFS series to IL2 1946 and on to IL2 Cliffs of Dover and DCS World and IL2 Battle of Stalingrad.
We pride ourselves in flying to the highest standards and like to ensure that we are well regarded online with an active participation in the community and on our favourite servers. 79vRAF joined the European Air Force in the summer of 2015, allowing us to offer new recruits a comprehensive Operational Training Unit experience with experienced flight simmers showing recruits the ropes and passing on their knowledge and experience, in addition to our own.
We are an apolitical grouping and do not endorse or condone any politcal party. We do not discriminate on the grounds of race, gender, sexuality or disabilities, our only exception is to say that members should be in a time-zone condusive to participation on Sunday evenings from 19:00 (GMT time).
