The moderators have the right to take action, including the removal of any person from the group. 

Age restriction, yes we prefer to have over 18's within the group due to Adult Humor, however anyone under the age of 18 will be on probation for 2 weeks of flight / interaction time to ensure maturity.

GROUP STRUCTURE

The 59th Ravens Virtual Flying Group structure is similar to that of many other multiplayer or coordinated online gaming groups. While it is possible to easily progress through the structure depending on your drive and commitment, the group values all of its members and their contribution at whatever level.

We also ensure members who simply wish to fly are welcome. If you dont want to conduct our training programs you can simply remain at the lowest rank and still have access to full membership.

 

 

PLANES YOU CAN FLY

Anything you want, we are not strict on this however some common sense will be needed here as a P-51 will not keep up with a SU-27. As a group we mainly Fly Jets, and Helicopters. we do host events for WW2 but this is not the main focus of our group. 


COMMUNICATIONS

Callsigns. your callsign must be unique and not a copy of another members.

Should there be a problem with a person's callsign and that person is unable to find a suitable callsign, one may be assigned to him by the other members, A vote will be put up on Facebook to decide the callsign for you. If you do not have a call sign, ask one the Mods for some advice on creating a poll.



COMMUNICATION SOFTWARE

Every member must use Teamspeak 3 and have it installed onto your PC. If you sign onto a flight channel where guys are flying and you choose to remain on their channel to listen in, be quiet. It's perfectly ok to listen in to a flight, but don't start a conversation with a buddy who is trying to fly, unless they allow you to do so.

If pilots are in briefing, please wait until the briefing is over before asking if they have an extra spot for you. Do not interrupt the briefing. When flying, make sure you are in one of the Flying channels on our Teamspeak server.

 

GUESTS

 

All Guests are welcome to still frly with the Ravens and enjoy our server. However they will not be able to view info on our webste as this is for members only.



TRAINING

We run training every Tuesday for our members, altho others are free to join.


NON ACTIVE MEMBERS

This group has been created to become a home for regular DCS pilots. We Admins do all the work so you can have fun, The only thing we ask is you take part. If you dont take part by flying with the Ravens we will suspend your account, We ask our members to fly. Considering this is a group dedicated to the FLIGHT of DCS WORLD, I dont think this should be an issue.

TEAMSPEAK RULES

Please respect other players, We all want to have fun so play nice.
In regards to the AFK channel, if your going to be away for more than 3 hours please can you kindly pop out TS, We will remove you if you forgot to do so, * NOT A BAN, simply log you out our server to help save bandwidth :)
Thanks 

 


HOUSE KEEPING
