ADDITIONAL INFORMATION



How much total experience do you have in DCS (total hours or periods of continuous play without breaks)?:1,000s (not sure I'm proud of that...)

How many days do you play DCS per week on average?:6

On a scale of 0-10 with 0 being never and 10 being always, how likely are you to read the training materials given to you when required?:10

How did you find out about us?:Referred to by knowledgeable folks

Why do you want to join CSG-2?:I’m looking for a milsim group that strives for complete “realism” in gameplay and operations.

What is your availability for training and how much time can you spend on CSG-2 activities per week?:Way more than I would like to admit.  I’m quite invested in DCS/Milsim, both in time and money

What do you enjoy about DCS? What keeps you interested in DCS in the long term?:The realism of the aircraft, the “beauty” of the graphics, and the seemingly endless learning opportunities are what keep me attracted to DCS. The online community is what will keep me going in the long term.  I've made a lot of “virtual” friends

What personal experience, knowledge, skills, or training do you have that has some relation to DCS? What experience, knowledge, skills, or training (Not necessarily DCS-related) can you provide that benefits everyone?:My family had a plane when I was in my 20s.  I have commercial, IFR, and multi ratings (took the CFItest, but never the check ride). In my youth, my career goal was to be a pilot, and I was accepted into the USMC Air Guarantee program (1990, during the post Berlin Wall military downsizing).  The day I was to report to Quantico, I went in for back surgery.  My military carrier was over, and the flying became difficult.  DCS and Milsim groups are my way to continue what I could have done if a few things in my life were different.  I was also in AROTC, but I have NEVER been on active duty, nor do I pretend.  I am currently a Nordic ski coach, and have many years experience in coaching and instructing (including Motorcycle Road Racing, speed skating, and other team sports).

What do you think is important for us to know about you?:Until recently I was in VCVW11, VFA97. Left over inappropriate discord posts; no hard feelings, just not where I want to spend my time anymore.  Your stated rules for discussion and general discourse fit my needs
