Name: John “Guppy” Rudell (Callsign: Guppy)
Age: 33 on 8/8! (As a side note its sort of crazy the fact that I flew with some of you back when I was 19/20)
Time flying DCS: Since LOMAC
Preferred Aircraft: Eagle, Hog, Hornet
I have FC, KA-50, Huey, Mirage and a few others. I find myself consistently going back to those 3 though (especially the hornet)
Reason for applying: I’ve toyed with wanting to apply to the 104th for quite some time, but every time I looked I just missed the cut-off for applying.
I think most of you already know, but I was a 169th Panther back in the day. A lot of what I loved about that squadron is present in the 104th. However, my main reason for applying is twofold: 1) I want to find a group of folks that I can enjoy flying with on a regular basis, challenge each other to learn and develop within the sim that is more “formal” than just flying with randoms. 2) Most importantly, I want a sense of friendship, teamwork and camaraderie when flying. I also want to connect more and fly more with those who I built relationships with in the past, while creating new friendships for the future.
I have always appreciated the level of professionalism and fun that comes with the 104th, its one of the reasons why I only fly on your server – I want to be part of this and believe I can make solid contributions.
Thank you for your time and I look forward to hearing back!
