    Squadron Pilot commitment

    Hi all,

    This is my first time post here. As previous threads, I am looking forward for the A-10C recruitment to open but I am wondering what’s the commitment required to stay current with the squadron to combine it with our real life responsibilities.

    I consider myself to have a solid knowledge on the aircraft systems/weapons usage and reading A-10 over Kosovo and Hogs in the sand has given me a heads up of Real life tactics/considerations to apply in DCS.

    Hope to join the squadron soon and learn from your expertise.

    Regards,

    raven (not sure if nickname is used!)

    Hey Raven.

    We have an internal document with the full wordy versions, but I’ll try to summarize:
    - 1 squadron flight per month
    - 1 official event per every two months
    - active on forums, discord and notams

    That doesn’t sound like much, and I will say that is the documented minimums, actual participation is typically much higher. i’d guesstimate the average is around 1 flight per week.

    May not sound like much, but with the planning and debriefing, it does add up.

    Hope that answers your question.
