How we work:
CVW-1 is membership driven, we provide dedicated TeamSpeak and SRS (Simple Radio) Servers as well as at least one (1) dedicated mission server at this time. A 5 person administrative staff handles the background work to maintain the website, servers and other operational components required to keep our group running day to day. Each squadron will have a CO, XO team that will handle the squadron’s operation, however we don’t use rank to segregate or stipulate what active members can and cannot do. We encourage members to take active rolls within the group to provide quality additions when and where they can. We embrace a team concept, where no voice or ego out shadows another.

How we train:
CVW-1 has built a training program that brings together the experiences of real world military aviators, aircraft maintainers, and service members, and combines it with actual CNATRA and Fleet Squadron Training materials. Where the limitations of the simulation affect the ‘realism’ factor we adjust the training appropriately. Our training program provides the base for incoming pilots to build upon as they join the fleet, but not at the expense of the fun factor. We don’t accept that this hobby should feel like a job sometimes, and you shouldn’t either. Rest assured that all of our members have completed the training syllabus prior to reaching a fleet squadron. We don’t offer training waivers, nor do we require applicants to do anything every active member hasn’t already done. Ongoing training is key, and as new procedures or pipelines open up, members will have a chance to qualify via training.

How we fly:
We simulate Carrier aviation, which means 90% of our operations will begin and end on the ‘Boat’. As a member you should expect runways that move, and dark nights that require attention to detail, and an adherence to training. We also strive to simulate real world aerial environments and engagements. Not every flight will end with bombs dropped and missiles fired. We aim to simulate not just combat, but peacetime operations as well. We also realize this is a hobby, and try not to take ourselves too seriously. The ultimate goal is to provide a fun and professional environment where member’s time is well spent, and friendships are built and maintained.

Where we plan to go:
It is important to understand that currently Carrier Aviation in DCS is in its infancy. We have selected the DCS F/A-18 as our primary aircraft, but our ultimate goal is to embrace additional carrier aircraft as they become available. We currently require incoming members to own the Hornet module as a minimum, and this will be a standard requirement. All of our training will be conducted utilizing the F/A-18 module. We will continually evaluate were we stand, and how we operate within the DCS environment, and where we see opportunities to adapt new technologies we will. Currently we are testing for implementation of Carrier Air Traffic Control (CATCC) and LSO technologies to provide true to life carrier operations. Check back here periodically, to see what new testing we are doing.

We do not have designated flight nights right now because we are just getting up and running. We will have them shortly. The guys that are on the wing now are all running through the training program, which is standard flight stuff taught by a retired F15/F16 pilot, but there is usually a flight every night; the guys are quite active.

I'm interested. When you say the guys on the wing are all running through the training program....that is really fascinating and sounds fun. Do you mean training as in, from even basic start up? What would be the requirements or "readiness" expected to then join this (besides the Hornet etc)?

Thank you

Thank you
The Hornet is the only requirement, although Persian Gulf may be a requirement later on. The training program is basic things like engine start, pattern work, radio calls, navigation, formation, and of course CASE 1 and CASE 3 carrier ops in the later stages. Followed later by weapons deployment and tactics as the sim develops. We employed realism to the training program but balanced it with the sim world. We do not expect you to be a "real world" hornet driver because this is not a paying job. Everyone including the admin staff are currently going through the training.

You would be expected to be able to start the jet and there is a training module to ensure you can, and you'd be expected to be able to take off and land; at a land based field initially since the training progresses from land to carrier. We still have mission type flights and use them as a test to see how our training is progressing and we modify our program accordingly.

The guys are serious in the air, but are joking and teasing each other on teamspeak; a good group of fellas.

Just to clarify Carrier Wing 1 is not taking on new members at this time.

Thanks

Yes, sorry we've filled out quota for now.

We only take a few new recruits so we can focus on getting them trained and up to speed.

Will post when taking new pilots again.

Greetings DCS Community! The Secretary of the Navy is pleased to announce the establishment of US Navy Carrier Air Wing 6 (Virtual). The Air Wing, which was de-activated in 1993, has been re-activated in response to the President's aggressive build-up of the U.S. Armed Forces. The President has focused a large amount of his attention on the Navy, and ensuring our Naval Forces are fit to fight anywhere, anytime, by increasing the amount of carriers in the fleet, and requesting that additional air wings be available for deployment to those carriers when they hit the fleet. As part of this fleet build-up, the Department of the Navy, and DOD, have decided to bring a limited amount of F-14's out of mothballs, and re-assign them to fleet squadrons in an effort to counter increased air to air capabilities of bad actors around the world, and supplement the strike capabilities of the F-18.

Carrier Wing 6 will be based on the east coast and will primarily supplement force projection in the Middle East. However, we will stand ready to deploy anywhere in the world to carry out the desires, and intent of our Commander in Chief.

Carrier Air Wing 6 will be comprised primarily of Navy and Marine squadrons that have been dis-established. The current stacking of the wing's squadrons, and their respective airframes will consist of the following:

VF-1 "Wolfpack" (F-14A/B Tomcat)
VF-24 "Renegades" (F-14A/B Tomcat)VFA-146 "Blue Diamonds" (F-18C Hornet)
VMFA-323 "Death Rattlers" (F-18C Hornet)
VMA-231 "Ace of Spades" (AV8B Harrier)

There are also plans, when the wing can support it, and there is a need, to add a Fleet Replacement/Training Squadron. This particular squadron will be announced at the appropriate time.

Is this wing for you?

We are a group that will focus on the fun of the simulation, and we have taken a small amount creative license with this group with a quasi-historical approach to the sim. For some, this will be hard to get past. If you are a Naval Aviation history buff that obsesses over the smallest of details, we're probably not for you. If you are someone that knows every manual front to back, and thinks anyone that flies this sim should as well, we're probably not for you. Simply put, rivet counters should probably stay away.

However, if you want to fly with a great bunch of folks of varying skill, and experience who enjoy nothing more than dropping hate on the bad guys, and splashing MiGs while honoring the most important components of Naval Aviation, then you're in the right place. Our 'standards' are applied in the right places, and where it counts. We believe in "Doing it by the numbers" where we can but, not to the point where it interferes with the fun of the simulation. Our main goal every time we go up is to destroy the enemy wherever they are, while doing it as close "to the numbers" as possible, and have fun while doing it. It's really just that simple.

How do I join?

This post is an announcement of the establishment of the wing, and the squadrons contained within. At this time, we are not openly recruiting. We are a small group of 10-12 individuals that are working hard to ensure that when we open recruiting, you will arrive at a wing that is organized, professional, properly structured, and with all of the kinks ironed out. When you arrive at the wing, we want your experience to be unlike any you've ever experienced in a virtual flight sim. We want you to immediately recognize that you have found your military flight sim home when you arrive. This post will update when we begin recruiting. However, you can private message me on the forum now if you are interested in joining this wing when recruitment opens. Detailed information on how to join will be available in the updated post, and again, if you're interested, by all means let us know as it will help us plan for your arrival at the wing.

Thanks again for taking a look at us, and we look forward to flying with you in the near future.
