The most commonly asked question we hear is, "Who are you guys?" This is usually followed by something along the lines of, "What exactly is it that you do?"
Fair queries to be sure and as such, the following will hopefully serve to provide some answers to these often asked questions.
In short, we are a virtual flying team representing the USA in on-line competitions against other countries who also enjoy meeting in these types of events. More specifically, we are a team comprised of a very diverse group of individual virtual pilots as well as members from many different squads and countries who have joined together to become Team USA. We are very fortunate and proud of our membership and place great value upon it!?
Our history is rich and runs the full spectrum from our humble beginnings to our current activities. TUSA was originally formed in 2001 to compete in a new on-line competition venue entitled, the International Online Competition League (IOCL). This league was created and organized by our good friend, Gozr, near the outset of the flight sim, IL-2 Sturmovik. Shortly after its inception, several teams from multiple nations across the globe were competing, but none from the USA. We were invited to join.
