About the Swiss Virtual Air Force

 

Thank you for your interest in the Swiss Virtual Air Force (SvAF).

1. Objective


The Swiss Virtual Airforce (SvAF) is a group of flightsim enthusiasts who wants to bring the Swiss Air Force alive on the internet and into the Microsoft Flight Simulator environment. We fly on online or offline with Swiss military aircrafts such as in real life. New members also have the opportunity to follow a training program or just to fly for flight hours.

2. Concept


Swiss military aviation simulated in FS9 or FSX, this is the main concept.
Althoug, Microsoft Flight Simulator is mainly a civil simulator software, it has migrated more and more to be used by military enthusiasts too. More and more military projects have been started in the MSFS area. The launch of the MS Acceleration Pack, containing an FA/18 Hornet underlines this fact. While other countries already have professional looking and professional managed virtual airlines, Switzerland till now had no real deal. Some projects certainly were there in the past, but most of them were given up because of insufficient time. SvAF intends to simulate the SAF as close as possible, always with the limitation on "public" classified materials. We do not offer any non "public" information at all. This will certainly limit the "as real as it gets" feeling. However we are certain to bring an excellent platform to the world out there.
We understand that we cannot simulate the entire SAF. We have decided to limit ourselfs to what we are able to handle and build up subsequently squadron by squadron. The key is the staff. We always are looking for new staff. Just send us an email mailto:info[at]vsaf[dot]ch

3. Trade-Offs


Microsoft Flight Simulator only offers a limited set of weapon systems. We are bound to these capabilities.

4. Costs


The membership in the Swiss Virtual Airforce is free of any charges.
The Swiss Virtual Airforce Command keeps the right to distribute hosting costs on staff members.
Development and Hosting of the Swiss Virtual Airforce does issue costs. We are pleased to receive any free contributions from members.
