Our Mission

We aim to excel in virtual aviation using the VATSIM Network. Through excellence we will have the most professional members of the VATSIM community.


You need to be at least 15 years of age and able to communicate using the written and spoken English language.


We will provide the realism and training needed to simulate the operations of the Australian Army


VATSIM is a network of thousands of people all around the world. It is the only place that can say it is as real as it gets.

Our Values

Our values are the same as the Australian Army. They are founded on tradition and innovation.

Lead me, follow me, or get out of my way.

Our Leaders

Our leaders are from all walks of life. This organisation is 100% voluntry and these people go above and beyond to bring the realism to you.
