    Getting very tire of this

    I understand. My Warthog throttle little nipple joystick got mapped to my flight controls. Found out while flying wing on Highway. Luckily avoided a mid-air.

    Had a similar issue. A few keys needed to be re-reset. Just roll with the punches, Mac. We still get to fly the F/A-18!

  4. Welcome aboard man. Looking forward to flying with you. I'm a Corpsman and spent 6 years with the grunts, so good to see a Marine join the group. Make yourself at home and chat us up on Discord when you get the chance. Hoorah

    Weird crash

    That's odd. More DCS bugs I guess

    Squadron Questions

    We need to get a check ride in first. Once officially accepted into the squadron you'll be granted access to the full forum, if you haven't already, then be given access to log your hours. We'll need to do the checkide on the Caucasus map, which wasn't up on the server yesterday, so I couldn't get that done for you.

    Squadron Questions

    Depending on when I get off I can be on. When are you normally available?

    Squadron Questions

    Hello Chappie. Thank you for showing interest! We do prefer our new pilots have some basic familiarity with the Hornet and its systems. We can take you up for a check ride, which would consist of checking your ability to cold start, taxi and take off, basic systems knowledge (TACAN, radio, radar, EW, weapons basic functions), basic formation keeping, and landing safely. If you feel you have this down, we can go ahead and get you a check ride. If you do ok, great. If you need some work, you can hang out in MAG-31 in training status and fly with us until you are proficient enough to progress to the syllabus. We are mainly looking for pilots that have the motivation to train and learn offline, train with us online, and show up for squadron nights ready to perform. Ready?

    Awesome! Either myself and/or Geko should be around. The Boss, Plague, may be around also. Keep an eye on Teamspeak and just jump on. Or we can shoot for around 7pm eastern.

    Welcome aboard! I think you've found the right place if you're looking practical structure. We try to fly as realistic and professional as possible within the limitations of DCS, while still keeping things fun as we're all pretty laid back. The level of training we're shooting for is a little robust, but it strengthens us as a team and a squadron in the long run as we're all working through it together. As far as flying, a few of us are available to fly almost every day and to some degree we do. For our training flights it's incumbent upon each pilot to take the time show up prepared to fly and be at least familiar with the day's training goal. Self-motivation will be important to learning the Marine Hornet syllabus as we have interpreted it. Again, many of us fly every day, so that doesn't mean learn in a vacuum. We have pick-up adhoc flights almost daily. Participation is key and what we're looking for. Plus, accruing and logging your flight hours leads to promotions and higher standing within the squadron. Going forward, we're working through the syllabus now, currently working on carrier qualification with our manned LSO and Marshal controllers, before jumping back into the air-to-surface stuff in preparation for a mini-campaign. We also throw in combined arms missions with manned JTAC's and a Ground Combat Element to put some of the training to the test. What days/times are you mostly available to fly so we can get you set up with an IP for a checkride and get you flying ASAP? What time zone are you in? Anyway, looking forward to flying with you and again, welcome aboard!

vVMFA-251 is a virtual DCS World F/A-18C squadron flying the Belsimtek/Eagle Dynamics F/A-18C module exclusively. We focus on real-world tactics as best we can within the DCS Wold environment.

vVMFA-251 is not your run of the mill DCS World squadron.
