There used to be one 5-6 years ago but it shut down due to lack of interest. To my best knowledge there is currently no active vCAF on VATSIM (there seems to be one for DCS).

Hey

Is it just me that is scared to death of the idea of Owen barging around the airspace with live weapons under his wings?????   ;D

LOLOL . Just kidding Owen!  I think this is a fantastic idea and wonderful opportunity for those who are looking for this style of flying.

Will be a huge plus for those controllers that are interested in Military style controlling also!

I was a big shot in cVAF but ownly because I spent 3 1/2 years in the Virtual US Navy(vUSN).
Lack of interest; Yes. As a training officer I would spent hours on the apron waiting for someone to fly with.
I still have some training doc's; God forbid someone wanted to start it up again.

So I guess it has been in the planning stages for about a year now?! I was taking care of the old website for a brief time and could dig through my old archives if there still is an interest to get this started up. I also have extensive experience in vSOA training. Send me a note if this is still in the works...

Hi,   I am interested from a controller point of view. I have a military endorsement (TWR) in the UK.

I'll keep an eye on the forum for any developments.

I looked through my backup files and unfortunately I don't have a copy of the old site anymore. I am not on TS much these days. Owen, maybe set up a Discord site and post an invite link for anyone who is interested in this?

Good idea, Tomas.

Owen, I've set up a Discord server. I'll transfer ownership to you when you're ready.

In the meantime, here's the invite.

I would be interested.  Former USAF Aircrew South East Asia.  7th Airborne Battlefield Command and Control.  If further discussions will take place on Discord, could we get an active invite link?
