378th Virtual Expeditionary Air Wing Recruitment:


Thank you for your interest in 378th Virtual Expeditionary Air Wing!

EDIT:   13 September, 2021.  We are currently looking for dedicated A-10, Viper and Hornet Drivers, along with individuals looking to act as or learn to be Controllers.  If you are interested, please stop by our Discord, we want to talk to you!


The 378th has been serving the underserved European DCS world within the DCS community for years. We strive for Military Realism in both our training and our missions, all while keeping a casual atmosphere. Right now, we support the 18, 16 and the A-10, and are looking to expand into other modules to include the Harrier, Various Choppers, etc.  We run a squadron format with any module we support or will be supporting.


Individual modules such as the 18, the 16, etc are assigned to various squadrons under the leadership of capable, veteran DCS pilots. Currently we only support the 16, the 18 and the A-10 in this way but are looking to open that up and expand this year. Right now we run the current Open Beta version of the sim.  Our normal flight times are M-T 1800/1900Z.  The flight days vary by squadron, the times are always the same.  We reserve weekends for pick up flights and for family time.


The core of the 378th remains our philosophy of inclusion. Our trainings and missions integrate all of the airframes we support via the Liberation Campaign.  Airframes are assigned roles based on their ability to conduct various tasks within the role they are designed to play.


We all have Real Lives. We get that! Real life always comes first within the 378th.  However, we do have a small attendance policy.  You must be able to commit to at least showing up 1 time per week for various training and/or mission days.  It takes a lot of time outside of flying to keep all of this together for any large, online group.  We want dedicated pilots who are willing to give back and support the group efforts to be successful.  Repeated, un-excused absences will get you removed.  If you have something come up, just let us know! No one wants to waste time on folks who cannot take the time to return the favor.  Just be ''present'' and communicate!


You will also be expected to show improvement. This means you will have to take the time to learn things in single player and not only when flying online with the group. Things like Refueling take a lot of practice and cannot be mastered a few hours online a month alone. You will need to practice outside of the group on your own time to get better.  We have a full online file sharing system along with a full online learning tool (currently being built) to help you learn your given module.


For those interested in a Mil-Sim environment with casual elements, look no further. We offer you the following:


- GMT Based flight times: 1800/1900Z, M-Th.


- Multiple Servers supporting interactive, custom maps/missions/training


- Training on any given module we currently support from Zero to Mission Ready via check rides, online learning and more.

- Discord


- A full featured website (WIP)


- Fully featured forums 


- A Calendar System for training and mission planning (WIP)


- Themed aircraft skins


- Multiple mission designs to keep things fresh


- A Military Simulation minded group who likes to keep the fun in our hobby


What are we looking for? We are looking for the following, dedicated individuals to join us and help make the DCS community overall even better:


- Mission Makers familiar with all forms of scripting within DCS (Moose, etc)


- Experienced and well qualified pilots to interview for CO and XO positions within

   Squadrons for various air frames.


- Inexperienced pilots looking for a place to finally call home in DCS, who will be dedicated not only to learning, expanding and become an asset to      the community overall, but who will also remain dedicated to the group


- Individuals familiar with the DCS aircraft skinning process


- Individuals familiar with creating DCS themed videos


- Individuals who are familiar with ATC/AWACS/LSO etc to fill the roles of Controllers/LSO

   for various mission using LOTAC and in game elements.

- Individuals who are interested in flying RED Airframes for a red based squadron who will be used within missions as ''real pilot'' aggressors VS            using AI.


What can you expect from the 378th? You can expect dedication to you as a pilot and member of the team. You can expect to be taught your module of choice inside and out to help you become one of the best pilots in a given plane within the community. You will be taught the correct, military minded way of flying with all proper procedures, communications and systems in a casual, mil-sim minded environment. You can expect to be treated fairly, impartially and with respect at all times, regardless of your race, gender, orientation, religion ect.


What do we expect in return? Dedication. Not only to yourself and the learning of your given module, but to the group as a whole. 


We also require you own the following maps:


- Persian Gulf Map


- The Syria Map


- Any other maps released in the future.  While we do not require any of the WWII assets (Maps etc...) we do have WWII nights once every month or two, and they are quite fun.  It's nice to mix things up once in a while.  


If this is something you are interested in, please, come join us and let’s have a chat!






We look forward to meeting you!
