Welcome to VAFFU
We are an organization dedicated to simulating real world aerial firefighting operations on the VATSIM Network. We strive to be as realistic as possible in our procedures, and value the teamwork that makes aerial firefighting possible.
Our mission is to provide a realistic and fun environment for pilots to learn about the complexity and excitement of aerial firefighting. Our operations focus mostly on the United States, and we aim to replicate the real world AirAttack, Lead Plane, and Air Tanker companies that operate in this region. We take training very seriously and understand that while it may feel overwhelming to immediately be met with training obligations, it makes the experience much more enjoyable overall. We highly recommend that you have an understanding of basic VATSIM procedures before joining us, but we are happy to provide some basic training to get you flying as soon as possible!
