Hello All, 

   I am interested in joining your unit if possible.

   In regards to the questions;

  • What is your Timezone?
  •    EST
  • Do you have a joystick or HOTAS?
  •    HOTAS @ Warthog
  • Do you have TeamSpeak installed, as well as a working microphone?
  •    Yes to both
  • Do you have TrackIR, or a FreeTrack system for view control?
  •    TrackIR
  • What sims are you currently flying?
  •    ROF w/most planes, IL2 1946, IL2 CLOD, DCS, IL2 BOS
  • How did you hear about JG1?
  •    In various forums i.e ROF, ATAG, etc
  • Is there anything else that you'd like us to know?
  •    Have been flying since 2013 but never online. Decided to jump to an organized unit to continue to improve. Researched until I saw JG1 which looks like it offers what I am looking for.
  •    Retired military so I know and understand teamwork.
  •    Fully set up with Rudder Pedals, Warthog Throttle and Joystick and modern computer.
  •    Kids have grown up and moved out into the world so I now have some time, well, when I am not building them furniture or fixing their houses, or at my day job.

   Thank you for your consideration. I hope to hear from you soon.

V/R

Klaiber should be along shortly with recruitment details but allow me to welcome you to our site.  

 

I do look forward to working with you, sir.  I have found that online flying is quite an exhilarating change from SP with teamwork against variables that no AI can fully reproduce.

What Brit said   ;) . Looks like you're set up really well. As a long time SP player, flying with "real" (quotation marks emphasized  :D ) makes a huge difference in the virtual experience. Looking forward to flying with you.

Welcome! Like the others have said, I'm looking forward to flying with you! :) We have several ex-military guys here, so I've got a feeling you'll fit right in. ;)

A little late, but welcome Ewald. Once you get flying with JG1, you'll never want to go back to single player again! There's nothing like looking out at your 3 and 9 and seeing friendly planes that you know are all piloted by real people, ready to work together.

Looking forward to flying with you Ewald!

Former military here as well (8yrs USN). This outfit is a bunch of fun to fly with, talented, and always looking to get better. I think you'll get a lot of enjoyment out of flying with these guys and the teamwork in combat is very fulfilling.

Some of the best fun I've had online is fighting with these guys against some of the experienced allied pilots in Ghost Skies and Storm of War. It's something else when you have to wipe the sweat off your brow and get the circularion back in your hands after a white-knuckle furball.

Thanks, looking forward to flying with everyone. It seems like a great unit very friendly and alot of comradeship.
I now wondered why I waited so long to join.
