Welcome Man! I won't hold being an Army guy against you. Haha. Navy Corpsman here and did a couple tours with the Marines. But served around the Army a lot in various places. Much respect.
Anyway, glad to have you. You'll find we have an awesome group here and guys that love flying the DCS Hornet. Make yourself at home and dig into the info in this section of the forum.
When are you usually available to fly? What timezone are you in? If you can get on tomorrow afternoon/evening eastern time, I can get on and we can chat on Teamspeak or in Discord. There we can get you set up for a checkride.
Again, welcome. Hope to fly with you soon.
