Above The Best

Welcome to the home of Virtual United States Army Aviation's 1st Cav Division Combat Aviation Brigade (CAB). Established in June of 2021, we are a venture designed to simulate the aviation branch of the United States Army. We invite you to join us and become part of an amazing opportunity to expand and promote this unique facet of our hobby. Utilizing DCS:World by Eagle Dynamics, pilots can immerse themselves in a world of military aviation that builds on the already flourishing flight sim community. Within the technical limitations of virtual flight simulation, we aim to recreate the world of United States Army Aviation to include Attack, Reconnaissance, Utility, and Medevac helicopter operations.
We are certain you will find an enjoyable environment and that you find your experience here rewarding.

Thank you for taking an interest in us. We look forward to flying with you.
