"Where Every Mission Counts"

Click here to edit subtitle

The Virtual Coast Guard was formed in 2011 with the notion of bringing a strict realism based aviation group to the Flight Simulator Community. After hundreds of hours of training and missions the Virtual Coast Guard far exceeded the Admiral's expectation, with upwards of twenty active pilots and a long list of  the Virtual Coast Guard applicants members were excited to be apart of such a fantastic diverse group of simulated/real world pilots. With the demise of Gamespy in late 2012 the Virtual Coast Guard was forced to look at alternative recruiting options as Gamespy was the primary source of recruitment due to our twenty-four hour flight server. About a year later the Virtual Coast Guard decided to close it's doors, they saved their last person with a Coast Guard Flight out of Astoria Oregon in late August 2013. It was challenging for all the pilots who have become like family to depart and move on to bigger and brighter pastures, although some stuck around most moved on. 


Well almost a year later and those pilots are wanting more realism and more Coast Guard missions and flights. So this time the Virtual Coast Guard will be returning to the skies of Microsoft Flight Simulator X and will be utilizing the VATSIM Network for all of it's flight operations, and it's private server for training operations. Joining the Virtual Coast Guard isn't like joining another VA, you're joining a brother/sister hood of aviation enthusiast; so if you're ready for the next challenge sign up or check us out.
