    Hello Scorpio47! Wow, that was one of the most thorough introduction I have read in a while! Thanks for taking the time to introduce yourself! Your next move is to jump on our Discord server (there is a link on the website s frontpage) and give a shout to an IP or UT for your introduction flight. This way we can get to know each other and you can ask all the questions you want about the squadron. Once your intro flight done, assuming you liked it, you ll be set as trainee until we got you to a good enough level for you to fly combat missions with us. Don t worry, it s not a long and painful process.

    looking forward to flying with you soon on line!


    Check out BSD website! BSD on FB BSD on TW BSD on PT BSD on YT

    Hello Sir:

    thank you for the flowers.... I had my introductory flight yesterday and there seems to be hope that one day I might be able to tame that wild beast and get ot tp do what I want instead of m doing what she wants....  ;-)

    I am looking forward to learn and absorb the necessary skills to become a valuable member of this fine group.

    To many soft and happy landings!
