Welcome Bluto
« on: October 01, 2021, 07:30:06 PM »
Bluto has come to us from the DCS Forums looking to try his hand as a "Naval Aviator."

He has over 200 hours between the Tomcat, Hornet and That thing that slithers.  He can complete the tanking cycle and knows Case I and III procedures.

He, Razor and Goose can swap stories about the 'ol days crossing the Delaware with George'...

He will have 7 days to complete his registration requirements sent to him via email.  Failure to do so will have his application denied and he will have to reapply.

Welcome aboard

<DOH!!> Welcome aboard Bluto  :thumbsup:


Any pilot that tells you he's never been lost is either lying or he's never been anywhere.

Hello Everyone!
I met up with Hoss over on the DCS forums, and he said this is the place to be.  I am looking forward to the experience with all of you.
I spent 4 years in the Navy working the roof aboard CV-64, the Constellation as an AO.  Met the ship in the shipyards in Philly.  Temporary port of Jacksonville before the return around the Horn cruise to San Diego.  Spent life full-time aboard her from 92-96.  Did a deployment that included Operation Southern Watch.  Our airwing, CAG-2 had F-14D's, 3 x F/.A-18C squadrons, EA-6B's, as well as the E-2C's and S-3B's.  Great time to work the flight deck.  Loved it and miss it every day. 
After the Navy, I became a pilot myself and currently fly private with an instrument rating.  Just moved back to the Chicago area to look after my mom who is getting up there.  I think this group would be a great opportunity to learn and laugh with people that share the same interests.  A lot of people don't get it, but what do they know?  Lol.  Just miss being part of something I guess.  Look forward to learning and contributing.  Just hope my system can handle the multi-player environment but I have a little successful experience with it.
I do a lot of single-player stuff.  Happy to be here. 
Fight to fly.  Fly to fight.  Fight to win.

We're happy to have you aboard  :thumbsup: Can't promise that you'll learn anything hanging around with us but if you don't laugh there's definitely something wrong  :Rofl
