About the Group:
- 11 TSG is an organization for Squadrons that come together to fly Campaigns and Missions that are made by members, for members. These Campaigns are typically story driven and the sorties are preceded by planning sessions.
- We currently have about 10+ active members, of a range of ages.
- 11 TSG is built upon equal contribution. All active members are expected to contribute in some way. Mainly through mission making (Basic knowledge of the DCS Mission Editor is highly recommended), but also in other ways that keep the Group and Squadrons active.
- Our ambition is to fly DCS in a realism oriented fashion, and almost exclusively PvE/COOP.
- We welcome people that focus on one module as well as those who fly multiple.
- We fly a lot on the PG and Syria maps and will fly on most new maps, as they are released (If you don’t have these maps, you will have a hard time participating). We currently use Open Beta.
- Our main flight day is Saturdays 20:30z (19:30z during DST) – and on Mondays (20:30z / 19:30z during DST) we have our main briefings for the coming Saturday sortie.
- Each squadron have its own training day, however inline with other group activities, they start at (20:30z / 19:30z during DST).

- Module Requirements:
- For Carrier Ops, we require the Super Carrier Module.

The Recruitment Process:
- We will contact you after we receive your application.
- An introduction meeting will be set up which will:
- Explain the structure of the group and what is expected of you.
- A Mentor will be appointed to you (usually the person doing your introduction).
- You will receive an invitation to our Discord server.
- You join as an APO (Aspiring Pilot Officer) in 1SQN. From this moment on you are considered a Recruit.
- The RTC-T (Recruit Training Course – Theory) introduces you to common procedures in the group. These are DCS-adjusted, real life (RAF/NATO) procedures to lay a baseline so everyone is on the same page during sorties.
- To properly understand the RTC-T content, members of 1SQN will fly training sessions to put the theory into practice.
- When you graduate from the RTC-T you become an PO (Pilot Officer).
- Once a PO, you continue your training in 1SQN with more emphasis on flying portion to prepare for the RTC-P (Recruit Training Course – Practical) check-ride which focuses on General Airmanship.
- For new pilots this is done in trainer aircraft, so that you can be coached by a TI (Training Instructor). If you don’t own a trainer module, we use the free T-45 module as well – Experienced pilots will have an opportunity to skip this part by performing a completing a check-ride outright.
- Once the RTC-P check-ride has been completed, you will become a FO (Flying Officer) and will transfer to the SQN of your choice
- Joining your SQN!
- When you transfer to your SQN of choice you’ll continue your training, learning the airframe specifics and flying as a member of a flight.
- We have voluntary courses, for example Carrier Ops procedures, or FAC/CAS, if you want to broaden your knowledge base even further.
- It’s allowed to be a member of multiple SQN’s, as long as you can fulfill the requirements in all of them.
- To achieve the full Member status and the rank FLT LT (Flight Lieutenant), you and your Mentor will discuss possible contributions (not monetary).
- The most common contribution is making a mission for a Saturday sortie. We have plenty of competent mission makers in the group to help you with this. There’s plenty of time to do this, so there’s no stress!
