  1. Name: Sebastien Bonne "Mermoz" Age: 35 Time Flying in DCS: Approximately 1 week for now, but I did several years on FSX, and other simulators Preferred Aircraft: For now F/A - 18C but I'm also thinking of F-14 once I can get it Reason for applying: Well I did dream to be a pilote in the French Marine but I grew up in a family tied to aeronautics (dad was a liner pilot, mom is an engineer for famous french maker.) Saddly, being too tall, and having used my eyesight on computer simulators, I could not. So I resorted to simulations... I am new to DCS, and I'd like to learn more and Mavericks Videos certainly were attractive and I would love to be included in such actions as much as real life allows me. I already flew on the caucasian missions, although mainly training for now, but would love to be more active soon in the battles just taking time to learn so as not to make mistakes.
  2. Hello everyone. my name is Sebastien and I finally got myself into DCS after years and years of FSX and other simulators starting with a game called Yeager (after Chuck) on Windows 3.1 Then I moved on FS98, Jane's Fighters Anthology (on which I discovered carrier aviation), FS 2002, FSX F22 ADF and so on and on. I got myself DCS only a few days ago with the F/A18 (only one for now) and am training... At the moment carrier landings are 50/50 bolter and catch. A/A Refuel is where I need some tips. I'm trying to follow Maverick's tutorial and I do get better at closing in in formation with the pod, but still only 1/3 attempt gets into contact and once I got the basket, I can't keep formation long enough. For some reason the plane gets jittery. For info I use an old Saitek X52joystick for now, not sure if it's what may cause my troubles. Anyway, if you got tips I'd be happy to try it out. I'd have tried to join you guys online (and may do so in the future if you accept non squadrons plane for some carrier ops training) but I don't have the persian gulf map and I'm not set for TS at the moment. As far as my callsign is concerned, it's one that was given to me by glider pilots friends in my youth, never knew why, although being nicknamed after the most famous french pioneer (and well known hothead...) is an honor. There you go, and an additional thanks to Mav for the videos.
