Special Operations Department Staff

Tobias Eckert


Special Operations Department Director

I am 28 years old living in South Germany; DE–SOC since 2014 and in the HQ–SOD since 2015; first 3 years as SOA3, then a half year as SOAD and since mid–October 2018 as SOD. Military aviation means a lot to me because of my own background in this area. I am passionately involved in this area, as I can support other users on the network with my experience to understand military aviation (regardless of whether comparatively simple or complex military operations). My another very big passion are nature and mountains (extreme mountaineering, rock climbing such as alpine climbing on big walls), expeditions, etc.



At HQ–SOD is responsible for management of the department, management of internal processes and projects, public relations, human Resources, SO Regulation, HQ SO Training and Exam System and MRC projects.

I am 32 years old and from Belgium. Passionate since my childhood about aviation, I joined IVAO in the early days and spent much time in training staff positions. I am a PPL holder in real life and am passionate about sharing my experience in trainings on IVAO. In spring 2017 I became XB–SOC (meanwhile I am XB–ADIR and have handed over the position of XB-SOC to an experienced successor) and since the beginning of June 2017 I am in HQ–SOD. Furthermore, I support our Executive Council as a Supervisor. I'm very happy to be part of the HQ–SOD and help spreading SO worldwide.

I have been a flightsim enthusiast since 2007 however started formally learning the aviation procedures in 2014 after joining IVAO. Ever since then it has been a fun in sharing the hobby with such a great community. I have recently completed HQ–SOD internal training programme.
