Virtual Government Flying Service

Hong Kong


IVAO Virtual Government Flying Service special operations group

Virtual Government Flying Service (VGFS) established on 1'st of July 2003 is a group of fellow flight simulator enthusiasts that enjoy simulating missions and various operations such as Search and Rescue in the Hong Kong SAR. We have found terrific enjoyment from trying to simulate the heroic and life-threatening jobs that real-world GFS does. Out of admiration and respect, we have tried to make this group as realistic as we can. This will become ultimately true with more members joining us!

We have both helicopter and fixed wing operations based in Chek Lap Kok; the main operation area covers the Hong Kong FIR and South China Sea. In addition to the normal training, our operations include Search & Rescue, Air Ambulance, Fire Fighting and other special tasks such as Sling loading, border patrol and VIP tours. We provide realistic sceneries and FSX missions for our members that make more fun. A local training airfield in Sek Kong and more than 20 landing sites were developed for Flight Simulator X in order to support our training and operations.
