    Where to find pilots?

    Ive had dcs for awhile but never really got into it. Getting tired of a lot of war thunder and im setting up all my stuff. Still need to learn to fly the hog (my only module) which leads me to my next question. Where do I look for groups who take complete and total noobs on the a10?

    Hi FireManDan, There are plenty of groups to fly with so finding a group isn’t a problem but finding the right one that suits your individual needs and personality might take a little bit of filtering on your behalf.
    Generally I find that the guys who run the different squadrons are super helpful, so don’t hesitate to contact any of them if you’re interested in possibly joining them.
    I would suggest starting with squadrons in your timezone to make it easier to line up a flight time (unless you’re a shift worker).
    Carrier based squadrons probably won’t really suit the A10 but don’t discount other squadron that don’t appear to be specific A10 as most groups included the A10 in their missions as it’s a very popular module.
    Here’s a good place to start.

    If you’re looking for a public server to just randomly join when you have free time here’s a couple of options that I’ve found very friendly.

    Also, have a look at getting on to Discord as most groups use this app for there social communications.
    I’m part of an international helicopter squadron known as the 229th ( http://1stcavdiv.forumotion.net/ ) but as the A10c is not particularly good at hovering, it’s probably not the squadron for you but do keep us in mind if you ever get the helicopter bug...

    Best of luck sir, have an outstanding day...

        Space Cadet, I've gotten A10C to hover a time or two, and I'll agree that it's not very good at holding altitude when you do!

          FMD, I thought I had experience flying when I first tried MBP about 2 years ago I was able to start, taxi, takeoff, fly, and sometimes land so I figured them squad would teach me the rest but there were several things missing from my inventory like being able to use the various com systems, or the weapon systems and the mods systems. I had a couple of other problems at the time and tried several squads at the same time but that failed.

          So my recommendations y\to no pilots to dcs that wish to begin to dcs multiplayer is to complete the training missions for your particular aircraft. And if I read correctly you have the a-10 I hope the c model not the a. So there are plenty of training missions for it plus at least three red flag training campaigns. Also, watch all the Matt Wagner tutorial videos that he did and once you have finished that and single player has nothing to offer you then try looking for a squad with similar goals.

          Or if your not a self learner buy the c-101 module and get in dcs academy’s pipe line training course. They do both usaf and usn training the splits after level 1 iirc. Plus they are spinning up an aggressor pipeline for the eastern block aircraft.

          Not trying to bum you but you need to be able to keep up and learn on your own with them as a problem solver if you don’t get something. If you want to do multiplayer and learn the basics then try and find someone like yourself and find a public server or host your own if possible then build multiplayer missions based on the sp training missions in the beginning then expand upon it. The good thing is by the time you complete your A-10 training the A-10 II:will be coming out based on newer tech for the sim and if I understood some of the proposed upgrades the tech that isn’t classified now that was when the original A-10 was programmed. The good thing is ed has an established relationship with the manufacturer and us military. Enjoy
