79 Squadron Virtual Royal Air Force


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 look to take part in campaigns with other squadrons on where possible 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.

We also have a growing number of members flying the Harrier in DCS World using the Normandy and Georgia maps.

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.
