Membership: Expectations and requirements

General code of conduct

  1. Respect. Respect everyone on voice comms, on the website, the forum and other websites when representing 132nd Virtual Wing. Treat others the way you want to be treated. Welcome new people to the Wing, and help them with any questions they might have. Don't make fun of other members, even if it's only a joke. You may think it's not a big deal, but to them it may be. Posts that violate the rules can be moderated. We were all new pilots at one point. During debriefing, don't point out every mistake a pilot made without saying the stuff they did well too. Being respectful to others also includes following our rules. Making pilots wait for you because you were unprepared or late is disrespectful. Racism, bullying and arguing beyond normal disagreements will not be tolerated.
  2. Do not speak negatively about other Virtual Wings or embarrass the 132nd Virtual Wing in any way. When you are using the 132nd TeamSpeak tag, in-game tag or have 132nd graphics in your signature or avatar, you are representing the 132nd Virtual Wing. This includes when you are on ED forums or other community websites. If you are using any 132nd artwork you must follow these rules. Be respectful when you are on other group's TeamSpeak servers or participating in events with other groups.
  3. Members are prohibited from using 132nd facilities to threaten, harass, abuse, intimidate or stalk others or to otherwise violate the legal right of others, including expectations to the rights of privacy and publicity.
  4. Should problems arise online between individuals, the parties should first attempt to resolve any issues among themselves. If this should fail, then the parties should locate and request the services of the command staff to resolve the dispute.
  5. Members are prohibited from using 132nd facilities to threaten, harass, abuse, intimidate or stalk others or to otherwise violate the legal right of others, including expectations to the rights of privacy and publicity.
  6. Individuals violating any of the 132nd rules may have their membership revoked.


  1. 132nd Virtual Wing is created for individuals that want to fly the DCS series of aircraft in a realistic manner. Every trainee and member needs to apply suspension of disbelief in order to simulate that the trainee or member is a real pilot operating in the real world. This is what a simulator is all about. The 132nd Virtual Wing is not for member that are out for filling up their logbooks with kills, or pilots that not are interested in flying in a realistic manner as described in the wing and squadrons SOPs and Training Manuals, and taught throughout the training program.
  2. Membership is open for all individuals within +/-2 hours from Central European time zone (CET); we are European-based Wing and operate in the Central European time zone.
  3. We are a group of adults and our members must be 18 or older. We expect our members to be both mature and reliable; if a trainee shows during training that he or she does not meet these criteria, we reserve the right to terminate their training.
  4. Membership experience. You must have a basic knowledge of DCS, defined as the level you will obtain from having completed the single player, training missions. Online experience and routine will be provided by the 132nd Virtual Wing Instructors, flightleads and other members. Although online experience is a plus in any applicant we do not expect new members to be fully familiarised with the multiplayer environment within DCS. We do, however, expect that every member applies themselves towards learning how it works.
  5. After their application is sent, and the individual is registered on the 132nd Website, the individual is considered a Trainee. Once the Trainee has completed Initial Qualifications Training (IQT), the Trainee will be considered a full member of the wing, and moved to the Mission Qualification Training (MQT) in order to prepare the member for participating in Combat missions with the 132nd Virtual Wing. All members must pass MQT before joining Combat missions.

General Airmanship

  1. Members shall, at all times, follow the Wing and Squadron Standard Operating Procedures to the best of their abilities.
  2. Members shall, at all times, adhere to the mission briefing and the mission commander/leads directives and/or intent to the best of their abilities.
  3. Members shall, to the best of their abilities, try to maintain and advance their flying skills.
  4. Since this is also a learning environment, everyone should remember to exercise patience and courtesy to new members and strive in all situations to help members/recruits by "showing the way" in a positive manner in order to improve our skill and capability to fly "as real as it gets".
  5. Dedication. 132nd Virtual Wing is not a wing for the casual virtual pilot. Every member must be willing to commit to flying in a realistic manner, according to the rules laid down in the paragraphs on this page.


  1. Callsigns. See the recruiting page for callsign guidelines
  2. Communications Software. Every member must use TeamSpeak for briefings and debriefings. installed according to the Wing standard.. In the application, a new member must provide an e-mail account for registration and membership purposes. Any e-mail addresses submitted to the 132nd Virtual Wing will not be shared outside the organisation without your express prior permission.
  3. Be courteous when on formal voice comms channels, both in brief / debrief, and when in the simulated RT (radio telephony) comms environment when flying on the server. If joining a new TeamSpeak channel, or when joining a new frequency on the server, always wait a few seconds to ensure that you don’t interrupt an ongoing conversation. When flying, move yourself the Flight channel on TeamSpeak and mute your microphone.
  4. Do not drag a pilot to another channel without asking him first. It's very rude to be dragged to another channel without your knowledge. The person you are dragging may have been listening, or worse participating, in a conversation and you dragging them to another channel can be seen as very rude. If you want to speak to a pilot privately, ask them, using either voice or text chat, if they have time to talk to you on a different channel. This rule applies to admins too. Being an admin doesn't give you the right to move users wherever whenever.
  5. Combat missions. When flying, keep comms to a minimum and related to the flight. This rule means to use brevity as much as possible. Your goal as a virtual pilot using brevity is to say as much as possible with as few words as possible. That's the idea behind brevity codes. You want to keep the comms clear for important radio calls. Not everyone knows all the brevity codes, so be patient with new pilots. However, talking about what you and your girlfriend did last weekend during the ingress to AO is not ok. Aside from jamming up comms over the radio you're also ruining other pilot’s immersion in the simulator. We're all polite and don't want to tell you to clear comms, do please don't make us do it.
  6. Move to the Idle/AFK channel if you step away when on TeamSpeak. All members are advised that if they expect to be away from keyboard (AFK) for longer than 15 minutes, please move to the AFK Channel. Pilots believed to have been idle for some time will be moved to the AFK channel.
