Join Us

We are a casual squadron but always aiming to improve ourselves and have fun with simulation. Please only apply if you do have some dedication and motivation, especially in the long run (as in not intending to stop playing within the coming weeks).

Benefits

  • Organized and structured squadron while still supporting laid back gaming.
  • Regular DCS missions and events.
  • Wide support of all sorts of modules and periods in missions.
  • Flat hierarchy with fair ranks and opportunities to get involved in advanced roles and tasks.
  • Open minded community - we support players from all around the world!

While we're open to everyone we are currently especially looking for these skillsets:

  1. Mission building experience
  2. Dedicated GCI/ATC/LSO (we have LotAtc licenses on our mission server)
  3. Additions to the naval element (F/A-18, F-14 etc.) and also people willing to fly as F-14 RIO

  • You're not part of any other DCS squadron
  • Willing to use SRS during missions
  • Sufficient knowledge of the English language
  • You have to be willing to fly during our co-operative missions at least every few weeks.
  • Willingness to fly with high realism settings (e.g. wake turbulence, g-force etc.). Helpers, like labels, are optionally available and can be turned on if required (e.g. eye sight).
  • Lastly a capable PC fit for running DCS open beta without major issues and peripherals is required to take part in worry free online interactions.

Softskills

  • You must be willing to be a member of the group. At best be able to explain what you know about and why you want to join us.

If you can agree with the above we'd love to keep you long term.

2. Applying

If you agree with the requirements above these steps get you on board:

  1. Join our Discord if not already done
  2. Request to join
    On Discord simply create a join-request by opening a Ticket in the *#request-to-join*-channel (residing in the JOIN DELTAFORCE category).
    A channel visible only to you and our staff will be created in which all further proceedings are handled and where you can ask anything you desire.
    If you need help with how this works you can always contact a @staff member in chat or via direct messaging.
  3. Interview
    All T3+ staff will be able to assist with a quick interview, giving us and you the means get to know each other.
    If there is mutual interest in joining the squadron the @Trial role will be assigned and an entry on the roster will be made. Feel free to join casual content with us!
  4. Checkride
    Once the requirements are met a checkride will follow and you'll get your DELTAFORCE wings if you pass it.
    Once completed a full membership grating you full curated mission readiness and the “@DELTAFORCE member” and “@Junior” role will be added.

Tips for the interview:
Just be yourself, there is no need to play an act.
Present yourself well, be confident, show you're hungry to join and answer questions honestly if asked.
Be awake and intelligent, show you can interact socially and ask if anything is unclear or you want to know more.
Motivation, dedication and humor goes a long way. Also feel free to bring up points where you believe we can improve. We're always eager to hear feedback in all stations of the process.

Most importantly find out if you're a good fit for the squadron and if it meets your expectations.

Sidenote: no need for sir or other forms of rank based / formal salutations - we don't roll like that.

Tips for the checkride:
As a @trial your task at hand is to prepare for the checkride and be able to complete it successfully. Feel free to ask our @staff in your onboard channel on Discord if anything is unclear or if you require assistance.
Don't worry, the scope of the checkride is outlined in the SOP section for the onboarding and should give you pointers on what to expect.
In case you believe you are not ready for the task ahead just ask - we are happy to guide you in the right direction although some home work might be required on your end.
