Why fly a WW2 flight simulator? Why join a fighter squadron of the 1940s? If the answer is because you are interested in all things WW2, especially military aviation, then you have come to the right place.
Welcome to the early 1940's...
King George VI is on the throne, and Prime Minister Winston Churchill is leading the nation in a desperate fight for survival against Adolf Hitler's Third Reich. In the skies above the British Isles and mainland Europe, as well as the Mediterranean and the Far East, aircraft of the Royal Air Force and Royal Fleet Air Arm strike relentlessly at the enemy.
The virtual world of the 'Tangmere Pilots'... allows us to climb into the cockpit of both Allied and Axis fighter aircraft and soar into the sky of WW2, using 'IL-2 Sturmovik: Battle of Stalingrad' (after flying with 'IL-2 Sturmovik: Cliffs of Dover' and originally 'IL-2 1946'). We take our flying seriously and our attitude to on-line community and 'squadron spirit' more so. If you are interested in the following, apply now for training...
