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.

moral and physical, to act in the best interests of the nation and the Army; including the moral strength and professionalism to balance the will to win with compassion, and mateship with duty.
to explore opportunities and embrace innovation to improve Army and our service to our nation.
for ourselves, our colleagues, our community and our history of service to the nation; acknowledging that each one of us has earned the right to wear the Rising Sun badge and the responsibility to uphold the values and traditions it symbolises.
to support each other, our Australian community, our allies and our regional security partners in striving to achieve our mission; in a world connected by digital communication, such national and international ‘communities’ exist in both physical and online domains.

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

Our Leaders
