IVAO UNIFORCE Virtual special operations group


I founded with Nihal back in the years 2007 the SOG Uniforce and Emirates VA. Both has disapeared by the years. As ex SOC and WM from the UAE DIV i will give my full support to SO pilots and ATC.

Go in close, and when you think you are too close, go in closer.
Commander Shaheen SQ. ‘Griffin”, UAF.

We are an organisation that will grow with you as you develop. We want to improve the Uniforce to become one of the most realistic virtual air SOG in the community. So that means there is always going to be a new challenge for you. We complete missions that are based around believable, credible scenarios that mirror real world operations and radiotelephony. This means you could find yourself involved in peacekeeping operations, humanitarian aid, air policing, customs and excise support, intelligence gathering and many other tasks alongside our primary role of air defence, support and strike missions. We train for these scenarios in a realistic way, offering progression, development and reward. Starting with Initial Flight Training in a two-seat light jet, all the way up to Operational Conversion in a single seat jet fighters. Offering opportunities for pilots to qualify on multiple fixed and rotary wing airframes means there is always something for you to do. We also have ground roles in support operations like Forward Air Controller, Air Traffic Control and OAT Management.
