Virtual Aerial Fire Fighting Unit

About Us

Started from the growing attention of wildfires in the United States our group of pilots and aviation enthusiasts hoping to bring a unique group of people that are interested in aerial fire fighting with the simulation of such agencies such as Cal Fire, Erickson, Coulson, Global Super Taker, AirSpray, Conair, AeroFlite, Neptune, AirStrike, and the USFS (United States Forest Service). This all started out with a love of aerial fire fighting and the will to learn the perfection of laying retardant on the ground to support ground troops during the battle against raging wildfires. With an idea to spread the word about the whole operation that happens within a TFR we welcome anyone from the public to either join us and learn alongside us or to teach us the various different ways of aerial fire fighting in the real world.
