Future Virtual Student Pilot,

Recruiting is essential to the growth of any organization to include the Virtual 303rd Fighter Group. Although we don’t have mandatory classroom sessions, we do offer one-on-one classroom instruction as necessary.

Recruiting & Course Entry Prerequisites:
1. Must be at least 18 years old.
2. Must be able to fly US evenings (normal flight nights are Thursday and Sunday evenings at 1900 Eastern).
3. Must own the DCS NTTR map and one of the aircraft modules we support (A-10C II, F-15E, or F-16C).
4. Safely start, taxi, takeoff, and land their aircraft in visual or instrument conditions.
5. Basic weapon employment (unguided, guided, & gun).
6. Successfully accomplish air-to-air refueling.
7. Successfully complete a sortie validating items listed above.

We don’t expect pilots to be perfect, but we do expect pilots to make an obvious effort to learn the material and continuously improve. In the v303 FG it’s okay to make mistakes we don’t want members feeling pressured to execute everything perfectly the first time.

The v303 FG’s virtual pilot training program is created to mirror the real world equivalent Basic Qualification Training Couse (B-Course) and Mission Qualification Training (MQT) with the intent to train virtual combat pilots, deploy precision attack aircraft, and deliver an array of air-to-air and air-to-ground weapons with pinpoint accuracy to win today’s virtual fight in DCS World. The content of the v303 FG’s training course is based on official, unclassified documents and is in no way intended to compromise, or disclose any sensitive information pertaining to any specific military unit or doctrine. Although the v303 FG doesn’t limit the number of aircraft a pilot can fly within the group students must complete the mandatory courses for a specific aircraft before qualifying on other aircraft.

DCS [MDS] Basic Qualification Training Course (BMQ):

Our foundational B-Course is mandatory for all pilots. The Course is designed to make the student pilot proficient as a wingman in all aspects of employment within the v303 FG. Student Pilots in B-Course will fly exclusively as a wingman except when conducting their initial instrument qualification.

DCS [MDS] Mission Qualification Training Course (MQT):

MQT is additional training opportunities that are available within the v303 FG. Course concepts include 2- and 4-ship flight lead upgrades (FLUG), instructor pilot upgrade (IPUG), and FAC(A) qualifications (amongst other topics). Some portions of MQT are mandatory.

The vision of the v303 FG is to enjoy flying with friends while focusing on real world tactics, techniques, and procedures in a milsim lite type environment within the confines of DCS World. If this interests you drop an application and someone from Command will reach out to schedule an interview. We appreciate you considering membership in the v303 FG as your virtual home for training and combat sorties in DCS World! Attack!
