Hello!

Post by Winkle »

Hi guys,

I'm Scott, callsign "Winkle". Just joined up, requesting No. 1 Sqdn. I'm a 50 yr old gamer who has recently picked up the mantle again after catching some DCS vids on the Youtube. I am a former Plod dog handler who now chases around after ill people in Ambulances, moth to a blue sparkly light I guess. Enjoying every minute of DCS. definitely improving but want to progress as frankly i'm pretty rubbish! (sorry No. 1 Sqdn). I am told that online is the way forward and i'm looking forward to increasing the immersion. Harrier is by far my favourite mod, getting there with the sensors and weapon systems, still struggling a bit with hovering/carrier landing, but getting the practice in. looking forward to flying and learning. treading water waiting for the South Atlantic map

Welcome aboard Winkle. Flying with real people is the way to go. More challenging, but rewards match the challenge.

Hi Winkle,

Welcome :)


As I'm sure you have seen RAFAIR caters for many airframes and flying styles, the Harrier's a great model and one of my favourites.. 1F will look after you well...

If the F18C with a naval bent ever interests you give me a shout and you'll be most welcome in 892NAS which operates mostly from DCS Super carriers. The Squadron fly on Tuesday and Thursday evenings around 19:30 UK time for training and engaging multi-squadron missions - Of course pilots are active throughout the week, often in other airframes too!.

If WW2 airframes are a 'thing' then likewise, give me a shout and we'll get you settled in to 19 SQN, here we tend to concentrate on the Spitfire and Mosquito primarily with the Mustang and Jug as a side dish... generally we get together on a Sunday evening.

For rotary wings, No 1 Flight Training School (Rotary) can assist on any rotary airframe if you need help... just shout..

Some eye candy to whet your appetite.... video courtesy of SHUGS (892NAS)

Thanks Chris, will keep it in mind, would definitely like an air to air string to my bow at some point, but one thing at a time for my poor old brain! Still trying to get my head around all the things I need to download and learn about, teamspeak, SRS, etc, not that pc savvy. I think I've just opened up Pandora's box

Hi Winkle and Welcome to RAFAir. If you should need some help getting yourself sorted out with the necessary bits and bobs put out a shout and we will give you a hand. From what I see you are wanting to get to grips with the Harrier so we are the very people you need! ;) I have no doubt you have already checked out 'How To Join RAF Air UK' page so, when you are ready click this link, https://discord.gg/K6veWrc and we can take it from there. See you soon.
