New Defense Airlift
Established in September 2000, Operational Support Airlift (OSA) is a group of aircraft hobbyist interested in simulating military flight operations over the Internet using Microsoft's Flight Simulator. During peacetime, the purpose of OSA is to meet essential military requirements that cannot be satisfied by other means and to furnish essential readiness.
OSA missions provide support to military command, installation, and management functions while improving readiness. Wartime OSA missions move high priority passengers and cargo in direct support of combat or contingency operations. Today, OSA schedules in excess of 260 aircraft at about 100 locations throughout the continental United States. C-12, C-21, UC-35, C-38, C-9, C-20, C-22, C-23, and C-26 aircraft make up only part of the OSA fleet.
OSA conducts all operations via the Internet using virtual airports found in Flight Simulator scenery. The main facilities consist of Muir Army Airfield (KMUI), Davison Army Airfield (KDAA), Dobbins Air Reserve Base (KMGE), and Andrews Air Force Base (KADW).
The organization is staffed by aircraft enthusiast worldwide using the Internet, Microsoft's Flight Simulator, and virtual air traffic controllers available through the SATSERV Network. OSA is in no way affiliated with any REAL WORLD agency. This is an independent volunteer educational organization open to all flightsim hobbyist.
