Virtual Flag Provides Unique Training for JSTARS Crews

Virtual Flag Provides Unique Training for JSTARS Crews

 

ROBINS AIR FORCE BASE, Ga. – The 461st and 116th Air Control Wings at Robins participated in a week-long Virtual Flag exercise in late March designed to provide realistic warfighter training in a simulated environment, a Robins Air Force Base news release says.

Hosting the exercise was the Air Force Distributed Mission Operations Center at Kirtland Air Force Base, New Mexico.

Virtual Flag simulations are quarterly, linking operational and tactical training of various weapons systems platforms across the armed services.

“You have these different platforms that are sometimes not available to go to an actual flying exercise,” said Maj. Jon Prindle, 16th Air Command and Control Squadron, who served as the exercise mission crew commander. “Virtual Flag reduced some of those costs, yet is available for a variety of units to participate in whatever scenario (DMOC) designs.”
