Looks like I'm up first...

Category: Recruiting Office 3 years ago
Callsign: TXSailor Age: 23 ISP: Cable, ~80mbps Central Time Zone My weekly availability is completely unpredictable, as my schedule doesn't get published until about 1730 the day before. In DCS I've probably got at least 100 hours of flight time in mixed platforms. I know absolutely nothing about the mission editor. Heck, I can't even place a plane on the tarmac without messing it up. For preferred helo, I enjoy the Mi-8 and UH-1 about equally. My expectations: I'd like an excuse to do some more helo flying, and ideally something that actually makes use of the transport platforms in unique ways, rather than just blasting a bunch of rockets around. So, now that I've got those out of the way, I'll give you a brief intro: I'm a fixed wing guy by trade (Currently a Navy strike student in real life) but I have a secret love affair with helicopters, primarily the troop transport role. I'm really looking for a group to get together, and a server I can pop in on that focuses on the helo side of things, as, just as you've mentioned, it's nothing like the fast-movers. I've got about 100 hours mixed in DCS, flying a little bit of everything, and even more time IRL in just about anything that gets off the ground.

    Hi TXSailor!

    Thanks for your presentation. Coincidently , I am in TX right now (Dallas) but I will be flying back Thursday. What about having a quick informal flight together this coming Friday 8th if you are available? We can fly Mi-8 if you want. I'll Pm you the details if you are OK for it.

     Well, I can't figure out how to send a PM, so I'll post it here. I've got a working party tomorrow, so no idea what the hours will be, but I'll check in here as soon as I'm available.

    Well, I realized there no PM system (yet). Need to figure out something.

    Anyway, let me know. I'll check again here at 2100 NY time if you are available.

    Holy shit man! That's what I call a come back! Lol!

    Most of the instructors are away for holidays, including me. So expect to see some action back around mid august. We'll set something up for ya. And while you are here, join the discord channel. You'll find a lot of discussions and members on line.

    Yeah, lol, they went balls-to-the-wall with Jet training, and then at last second decided to make me a helo pilot instead lol. So I'm getting back into DCS helos in preparation for the real thing lol. I was digging around here and couldn't find the discord server info, would you mind linking it while I keep digging?

    That’s awesome I will be exited to see how Navy flight training compares to the Army. Do they still use the Th-57? Anyway looking forward to flying with you.

    Really happy you will be flying rotaries. Eagle will not be the only one anymore to bear the burden of teaching what he knows to everybody else!

    Yes sir! TH-57 is where I'm headed. It's going to be quite the transition after being in a fixed-wing carrier pipeline, but it will be fun!
