Hey guys, it's been a long break for me since starting pilot training. It's been an awesome time but super busy and flying sims on the weekends hasn't been a high priority after doing so much of that during the week. But I recently found out my assignment for after training and it's the Viper!

I'm finishing up class pretty soon and will be looking to get back into some flights with you guys, so hope to see you around soon.

Speed is life

That's totally awesome Dough Boy! Thanks for sharing, and stop by for a chat anytime even if you don't have time for a flight. And, once you get to that Viper base, just let me know if you have any questions! :lol:

Hey Dough Boy,
Contracts on making it through such an exacting course and on tour first deployment. Hopefully you are excited. I dare say many would be hoping for F22/F35 but perhaps the F16 will be a happy deployment for you based on your BMS interests?

Anyway, congrats, good luck with the remainder of your course, safe flying and look forward to flying with you again soon.

Hey Doughboy, That's great news!

Wish you all the best and that you will always have a hand's width of air under your wings.

You can ask your crew chief, but I don't think he can load your usual keyfile to your new HOTAS system and please remember, nicely little things like FOVToggle -1 0 0x26 0 0 0 1 "VIEWGEN: Look Closer - Toggle" are not available anymore. :D

Looking forward to hear from you again.

Stay safe!
Nick
