Pilots needed for upcoming OCU Campaign

Post by Paul(Dragon)0043 » 26 Jun 2020, 13:45

Pilots, we have been invited by OCU to participate in an upcoming campaign based in the Persian Gulf.

This campaign will consist of F-18, AV8B, F-14, A-10C, and F-16 if they wish to.

I am in discussion with OCU, on which evening the mission will be flown. At the moment we are looking at either Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday or Sunday, all dependent on what night the most pilots can fly it.

Most missions will not last more than 2½ Hours.

I am looking for pilots who wish to join in this endeavour, and can commit to flying most of the missions in the campaign (unless R/L intervenes of course).

If you are interested, reply below please.

The only free evening I have is Thursday. Not sure if this will mean the training night gets put on hold. I'm happy to do either.

Last night was just to hot for VR. :oops: Just had to sit by the river.

Not sure Paul's post was fully understood, reading the replies.

We are asking you which of the days suits you better? We will run the campaign on the night that the most people can attend, so pick which of the nights you are the most likely to be able to attend and whichever has the most votes will be the one we run the campaign on. Simples.
Sometimes stuff is supposed to fall off....sometimes not.
I still can't be sure which... :?
