VFAT 2013 Video Trailer By Slamraam

The Virtual Festival of Aerobatic Teams or VFAT is a big international airshow like RIAT or MAKS.

The pilots mostly simulate the displays of real aerobatic teams like the Patrouille Suisse, Thunderbirds, Blue Angels, Russian Knights and Blue Impulse, however, many teams also create their own spectacular displays instead of simulating real life counterparts.

VFAT is currently the only virtual airshow where such a large group of teams gather to create an event of this size and since 2007, spectators can watch the event live using internet streaming technology.

VFAT takes place once a year and offers the opportunity for virtual aerobatic teams and solo pilots to present their hard work for the enjoyment to the general public!

DCS Race and Phoenix’s Nest Cancelled

We have decided to cancel the DCS 1000 air race as well as the Phoenix’s Nest tactical mission events.
The reason is that both events had been initially designed to run on earlier versions of DCS world which were more stable MP-wise.
Despite our effort to make the mission files as light as possible and after several testing sessions, we still have no guaranty it will run smooth on D-day, let alone run efficiently for 2 or 3 hours in a row.

Nevertheless, we are still planning to organize more events in the near future and hope that the game becomes more stable in the meantime. Unlike casual open events, SA tour missions are about PvP competition, so stability is a must to make the most out of it.
The good news is that we have accumulated experience over the last few weeks trying to edit the old files, therefore we believe that our upcoming events will be more in tune with the latest DCS World version and would enable us to resume the SA tour successfully.

Thanks to all the pilots who signed up for these 2 events. Stay tuned as action will be coming back soon!

Action To Resume After Summer Break

After discussing with our partners, we have decided to move our next events (Phoenix’s Nest tatical battle and DCS 1000 Air Race) to September after the summer break.

Exact dates will be announced couple of weeks before the kickoff to allow pilots that signed up to confirm their participation.

In the meantime, people that would like to participate but have not signed up yet, please let us know by posting your callsign, name of the event and unit to operate in this thread. You can either go for a free slot (check available slots in the recap below) or go for an already taken slot to have priority in case of a withdrawal. It will be on first come first served basis.
