Awesome write up Fargo and Congratulations once again TXSailor on earning your wings.

I didn’t mean to freak you out Fargo when I said you better be able to hover, I just would have been surprised considering your setup and the realism of DCS.

I am also really glad you got to see the other side of making a flight possible. Being a military aviator is still the coolest job ever but the military being the military always finds a way to suck the fun out of it.

I think that was the hardest part to convey to BSD pilots is just how much planning goes into a flight. We went back and forth for a long time in the high command on how much planning was necessary and I think we have done a really good job of stripping away some of the more tedious aspects and left what was essential for mission success.

Honestly some of the planning products I have seen produced by our members are on par if not superior to some I have seen IRL.

I also have seen some pretty high stress missions conducted to standard which if you consider the limitations of DCS is impressive to say the least.

Really Fargo there was never a doubt in my mind that you could do it and there really is not a doubt in my mind that any of our BSD pilots could do it.

I knew you could do it! I bet I could as well. Congratulations to [BSD] TXSailor on his wings. BBQ and beers on me when you get settled in the new house!
At our meet in Atlanta Fargo was quick to jump in the Huey and ask a lot of questions. During the flight he was front and center looking at and calling out our speed and all. I think we have found a good balance from real life to what you can do in DCS here at BSD.
Picture of Fargo getting into the nitty gritty on our UH-1H before the flight. Well done sir.

Yeah you could for sure bro. As said, I think most of us at RL2 or above could handle it.

For those who don't know - here's how that visit turned out. The pilot doing the talking is Jack McCormick, a Vietnam Veteran combat pilot who truly understood the type of information that was valuable to us, and did his best to walk us through every type of maneuver we wanted to see. It was a privilege to fly with him, and we literally drank information from a fire hose.

I was drunk on this for months.

Having him narrate this was pure genius - credit to BadCrC.



We do tend to dig in here @ BSD. We have a good time in the dirt working together and sometimes laughing at ourselves and each other while we're doing it.
