About

No 56 (V) Sqn is a virtual WWI combat squadron dedicated to fun, camaraderie, and teamwork in the flight simulator, Rise of Flight. We fly mostly British rides (especially the S.E.5a) on the Entente side and are a realism immersion unit (to the extent that that is practical and still fun). Just like the real fighter pilots of WWI, we do not use voice comms for coordinating navigation and combat once in the air but only for planning on the ground and casual conversation while flying (see how this system works on our Community page). This is a challenging standard to uphold, but we think that it ultimately improves each of our pilot's situational awareness and effectiveness in a WWI aviation setting. We welcome members of all skill levels as long as they are respectful of their squadron-mates and the Rise of Flight community at large.
