Virtual Coast Guard membership is more then another "VA" or "VM", it's a place where real world pilots and students come to relax with a sense of realism, adventure and excitement. Most Virtual Coast Guard members have more than one hundred and fifty flight simulator hours, and some real world hours. The Virtual Coast Guard prides itself in knowing that all members are not only representing themselves but the Virtual Coast Guard. Membership training with the Virtual Coast Guard can take anywhere from one to four weeks or longer depending on your availability, the recruitment process is one of the hardest in the flight simulator community. The Virtual Coast Guard is here to help simulator pilots learn and expand on their current knowledge of flight.

See you in the skies!
Recruitment Process:

The application for admission into the Virtual Coast Guard details very specific requirements and guidelines that must be adhered to. Should ANY and ALL elements of these inquiries be omitted or otherwise lacking in satisfaction the applicant will not be considered for admittance (but may be considered for reapplying upon command staff request and authorization).

            Accepted applicants, upon receipt of their status through email, will be asked to attend a candidacy meeting with the command staff as well as other members (to be determined) with inquiries or other prevarications regarding the candidate or candidate‚Äôs application. The candidate will then receive a training manual (pending on the outcome of the candidacy meeting to have been held formerly) which will list in detail the training requirements from the first lesson to the checkride with their chosen (or assigned) field of study (fixed wing/rotorcraft). Based on all the information given within this time, the candidate will have one week to decide whether to remain a candidate and proceed with the training process. This decision must be sent to the Virtual Coast Guard through email to ensure receipt. If no response is given by 23:59 (local time of candidate) on the seventh day, the candidate will removed from the roster and must reapply to be reconsidered. Should the candidate choose to proceed, he/she will be assigned an O.C.S. number and may begin training.
