  1. Hi @Bunny287. I fly the S.E.5a every week on Thursday during J5's Flugpark Fly-in. If you want to join me on a Thursday (with the exception of tomorrow, Thanksgiving Day) send me a message on Discord. For that link and to learn more about No 56 (V) Sqn, visit www.56sqn.com.
  2. J2_Drookasi, what a fantastic resource! Thanks for applying these principles and your extensive experience to the WWI virtual flight sim arena. I look forward to reading Roundels and Crosses in full. It is an invaluable guide for pilots looking to improve their combat performance (like me πŸ™‚).
  3. I would support such time-period based maps! I am biased, though, because I would prefer to fight Albatri and Pfalzs, in my SE5a, rather than DVIIFs πŸ™‚
  4. Thanks for doing this, @J2_Drookasi! The Circus Post looks great. I appreciate that you are continuing to feature No 56 (V) Sqn in the recruiting section, too.
  5. The Flugpark with the new map was great fun yesterday! Thank you indeed to @J99_Sizzlorr & @J5_Baeumer (and others) for bringing these new maps into the rotation. I especially like how the compact size of the combat area encourages more encounters and dogfights (and the AI concentrated in the dogfight area).
  6. Great first article, @JG1_Hotlead_J10, and an interesting perspective in that German airman's book. Just the other day, I was thinking it would be nice to have a Stormbirds type blog that focuses specifically on WWI flight sims like FC and RoF. I know your blog focuses more on aviation history (a great topic in its own right), but either way, I look forward to reading more of your posts as the project evolves.
  7. Any S.E.5a pilots interested in flying a sortie or two with me on the Flugpark tonight at 8 PM (CT)? Last Thursday did not see many Central opponents on the server, though, so hopefully we'll have some pilots on the opposing side, too.
  8. Great video, workshop, and projects! Thanks for sharing the "behind the scenes", @vonrickenbecker.
  9. I only fly in the sim once a week, on Flugpark's Thursday nights (or during special events like J5's Bloody April and Black September). During the entire week, I look forward to flying on Thursday. I was bummed out yesterday when we had almost no Central pilots online to fly against. I'm not sure what the best solution is at this point about boosting the WW1 flight sim community. I hope we can all stay positive and continue to find creative ways to enjoy the hobby (big shout out to J5 for creating community events and to folks like @US103_Baer, @JG1_Hotlead_J10, @Wolfpack345, @ShamrockOneFive, and others for creating great content about FC). I do wish the developers would be more open in their communication about FC (their news updates about the WW2 sims are fantastic) regardless of whether the news is good or bad. But I'm personally trying not to tie my enjoyment of the hobby to developer updates. I'd rather not migrate back to RoF from FC because I eventually really want to fly with VR. But if there's no one to fly against in FC in the coming year, then that would be an issue. πŸ™‚
  10. Fun flying with you all this Thursday! Congrats on the new recruits, No 20 Sqn! πŸ‘
  11. I don't really fly two-seaters but can help with the fighter cover!
  12. That's great, @gascan! Jump onto Discord if you can for voice comms. Look forward to flying with you both (if you go the S.E.5a route πŸ˜‰).
  13. Any S.E.5a aficionado(s) interested in winging up with me this Thursday (at 8 p.m. U.S. Central Time) for a couple of patrols on the Flugpark server? Let me know here on the forum or via Discord: https://discord.gg/QvpexcX
  14. *bump* If anybody is interested in flying with a few of us in S.E.5a's on Thursdays, let me know in our squadron Discord: https://discord.gg/QvpexcX
  15. A big thank you to Jasta 5 for organizing this event and to @1PL-Lucas-1Esk and @Adler_Blau for planning Entente side operations. It was a lot of fun. Well done, all!
