No SO events have been organised. You may check archive data for SO events organised before 01 December 2018.

The French Polynesian IVAO division has again, since March 2018, an active Special Operations Department.

It had been 5 years since we had reactivated our divisional SOD. In March 2018 we have created a brand new Divisional Special Operations Tour. It allows the pilots to discover Polynesia on jets, helicopters, and military planes, performing tours' legs according to the briefing of the Tour. This briefing was designed to interact with the pilots, they should provide a certain information at the end of their missions.

Our division is involved in the creation of many SO tours, including two "mini-tours" with military connotation (Corsair F4u planes), Tribute to Papy Boyington.
