                What timezone do you usually fly in?

                When you're looking for helicopter pilots, any specific helicopters? At the moment I fly the Huey but looking to get into the KA-50 later on...

                  Nothing in particular at the moment. It's in the planning stage. Hopefully find some experience to help get them going, for more dynamic missions. The plan is for it to cover all types.

                  So far all we have is a name, 1 Regiment Army Air Corps loosely based off attack helo unit a member of my family ran for the British Army.

                  Timezone is typically 2230EST on friday nights. May change and add more as we grow.
