Join the Lounge
The Falcon Lounge is a Falcon BMS community. Our goal is to help you enjoy the F-16 simulation in Falcon BMS as much as we can by learning the basics.
We plan regular Multiplayer missions with our community to share a good flight all together!
See you in the virtual skies full of F-16 Fighting Falcon pilots…
Learn with the Lounge
Because we believe that sharing knowledge is the key to fully enjoy the sim, we offer to a limited number of people a training course on falcon BMS!
Follow our F-16 training lessons and become yourself a Falcon Lounge trainer!
Hello fellow pilots! Falcon 4.34 is out!!! Yes it is real and freshly released for your greater pleasure. What can you expect in that version? New Radio Management Pilots will now need to have a real communication plan to communicate with flights and AWACS. You will no longer be in the middle of a major mess. New ATC System You now have a Ground, Tower and Departure / Approach. and you’ll need to switch to the right frequencies. IFF Implmentation This one is a great addition to Falcon. You now have a real like implementation of IFF (Transponder) and AIFF (interrogator). New Campaigns You now have 6 campaigns!! New AWACS calls AWACS now give you realistic instructions to flights and packages. New AI and SAM behavior AI will now follow leader in a much more realistic way, skip waypoint and hold to respect global timing. SAM operators can now track and spot when needed and ambush you… Weather engine change This one is impressive. Along side a dynamic campaign, you have now an improved weather change (dynamic too) that will move across the map. Damage model F-16 will now blow-up engine if not started properly… Oil and Fuel leaks are now modeled in case of damage! Weapon changes Mainly Fox 2 will now follow heat signatures and proximity fuses are now modeled.

Hello Pilots, Summer went through and as usual things got a bit slow for a couple weeks… September should have been ramping up but nothing really happened there. A couple reasons for that: Busy lives for the staff (yes we also have a life aside Falcon 🙂 ) Major makeover of the Academy (I’ll probably post about that one later) Not enough hours in a day… So, I short, we have not forgotten you! We simply need time / help to build up this community! So keep supporting us and helping us in our Falcon adventure! Cheers
