About Us

We are an international group of like minded individuals that enjoy flying the Falcon BMS simulator and sharing our passion of the F-16 and online flying with others. We offer training programs for novice and experienced virtual pilots as well as coordinated events focused on cooperative execution of (mostly) realistic tactics. We continually strive to make ourselves better BMS pilots while enjoying the company of others that share our passion.

Some of the principles that drive our wing include the enjoyment from properly planned and executed co-op flights (you won't find much PvP dogfighting here other than practicing to keep that skill sharp), ongoing training on a variety of systems and tactics and in general the sharing of interesting aviation information. We take pride in sharing our passion of the BMS platform and enjoy helping others get the most out of that experience.

In this Wing you will find that we emphasize co-op flying and mission success rather than kill count. Ensuring that we accomplish our goal while bringing everyone home is a primary factor in planning our missions and employing the tactics we use. We have a proven training program for all new members that helps ensure all virtual pilots are flying with a core set of skills that allows for an immersive and enjoyable experience for all those flying. Whether you are an experienced BMS pilot or new to this community, we believe the 440th has something to offer you - and probably learn from you too!

If you feel you're up to the challenge, please visit our recruiting page and post an introduction in our forum. Also check out our YouTube channel where you can learn more about us and see some of the wing members in action during our flights.
