The 72nd Virtual Fighter Wing is large in size and the different personalities within the Wing are vast. We feel it is necessary to lay out a clear set of rules and guidelines on how we expect our members to conduct themselves and what is expected of them. This may appear pretty straightforward, however all 72nd members are expected to conduct themselves accordingly.
An important aspect of our Wing is mutual respect for one another. If you don’t respect your fellow wing members, then you cannot expect respect in return. This also applies to how we treat people outside of the 72nd VFW where you will be representing the Wing. We do not tolerate lack of respect inside or outside of the 72nd.
Honesty and integrity play important roles in the culture of the 72nd. It’s extremely important that everyone within the Wing be able to share their honest opinion with each other in a respectful and constructive manner. Honesty is important for the friendships we have within the Wing, so if you feel you cannot be honest then perhaps the 72nd is not the place for you. Online play/communication provides a sense of anonymity. Words are powerful and feelings can be injured easily. Please be mindful of your tone-spoken and/or written.
In the "Pit” it is expected that you are working towards the goal the team is attempting to accomplish. Individual play is discouraged as the nature of our sim depends on teamwork within your assigned role. Flight Leads and Mission Commanders have the utmost authority during missions in order to accomplish the task at hand and to safely RTB the flight.
All members must be at least 18 years of age.
All members must demonstrate a good attitude and friendly personality. By joining the 72nd you become a representative of the Wing. This goes beyond your conduct and behavior to fellow Wing members and extends to the public at large.
Disputes with fellow Wing members should never be aired in an open environment-TeamSpeak or the forums. Members should be mature enough to understand we sometimes agree to disagree and are encouraged to work their differences out with each other in private.
Personal attacks and/or Racism will not be tolerated.
All members must respect the Chain of Command set within the 72nd VFW.
We welcome new ideas, however they must be vetted through proper channels. Any official video's, documents, procedures, events etc. must be authorized by the 72nd VFW Command staff.
Any member that has not attended a 72nd VFW event in a 60 day period will be considered a reserve pilot.
Any member that has not attended a 72nd VFW event in a 180 day period will be considered an inactive reserve pilot and will not be displayed on our Roster.
All 72nd members are encouraged to report situations in which they feel they or others are mistreated or that an abusive situation has taken place, to their Squadron CO/XO or to Wing Command.
Disciplinary action will include the following actions for violations of the 72nd Charter.
Suspension of membership privileges
Termination of membership (Required to go before the Review Board)
Immediate Dismissal from the 72nd
Depending upon the degree of the situation, it may be necessary to immediately dismiss a member from the 72nd. Such situations will be required to pass before a Review Board in which no less than 5 Wing Members will review the situation and make a vote as to the status of the member. The Review Board will have the responsibility of keeping minutes and making them available to the membership upon request.
The review board will consist of the following Wing member positions:
1 member representing Wing Command - CO/XO or OPS
2 members representing Squadron Commands - CO/XO (One of which will be the member in question's Commander)
