- : About Us :-
We are a combat flight simulation squadron flying propeller driven aircraft from WW1 and WW2. We do this using computer programs and networks across the internet.
The real 74 Squadron of the Royal Air Force had a long and distinguished operational flying career. Established in 1917, it flew against the German flying circuses over the trenches during 1918. Its most outstanding pilot at that time was Edward "Mick" Mannock, who shot down 35 enemy aircraft while flying with the squadron.
No 74 squadron was quickly into the thick of action in WW2. Serving in France during the early part of 1940, and then as a front line squadron during the Battle of Britain. It had a number of very successful pilots, including Clive Caldwell, Sailor Malan, and HM Stephens. It also served in the middle east and through the invasion of europe. It was disbanded as an operational unit in 2000.
Already our RAF74 squadron has a long history of battle honours, taking part in and leading multiple campaigns over the last 10 years over the world wide web. We come together on a weekly basis to fly planes that we could never afford on computer screens across the world.
Note: We are not part of the Royal Air Force and this site is just for avid history fans to recreate air battles from over 60 years ago.
Your SE5a is warmed up and waiting.
The squadron currently flies two Combat Flight Simulations: Rise of Flight, a simulation of the air combat which occurred during World War I, and Cliffs of Dover, a recreation of the events occurring during the Battle of Britain from July to September 1940.
Most often we attend the Rise of Flight servers, where we specialise in flying the SE5a and Sopwith Camel though we are also successful flying the other entente aircraft including two-seaters such as the Bristol Fighter and RE-8.
We welcome all pilots, whether they wish to fly Scouts (Fighters), two-seaters or heavy bombers, and excel at teaching new and aspiring pilots the fundamental techniques required to become high-scoring and competetive members of the RAF74 Squadron.
We use TeamSpeak 3 as our voice communications system and focus on teamwork as the means to success online.
Current flying times are: Friday 9:00pm EST and Sunday 2:00pm EST (GMT 7:00pm)
