Jasta 5 Recruiting
Ltn. Charles Ludwig vonKrabbenhöft, Recruiting Officer
the Call to the Air!
Jasta 5 has been ordered by the Kaiser to
provide reinforcement to the Central Forces efforts on the Western
Front. If you are new to online WWI gaming or are experienced
but have never flown with a Jasta in organized events you are
encouraged to enlist with Jasta 5. Just fly your crate to
Boistrancourt Aerodrome. There is a hangar waiting for you!
Joining a Jagdstaffel, or Jasta*, can add
a whole new dimension to your online WW I gaming experience.
Throughout the year there are several organized online tournaments
utilizing various strategies and tactics which you can only
participate in as a member of Jasta 5.
*the term 'Jasta' is short for Jagdstaffel,
which translates from German to English as "Hunting Squadron".
Membership is Free:
Jasta 5 is a member supported group, and
accepts voluntary financial support from existing members. Operating
expenses include a state of the
art dedicated training server available for our pilots 24/7 to practice
and train safely in, as well as this website and forum hosting, and
a commercial 24/7 separate dedicated communications server (Radio
Room), as well as incidental expenses such as pilot retention and
recognition programs. Monthly expenses not covered by voluntary donations
from the general membership are the
responsibility of the Jasta leadership (officers).
World Wide Membership:
Jasta 5 is a world wide team oriented
group. Our pilots are from around the world. Pilots have joined from North
America, Western and Eastern Europe and even Africa and Australia,
to name a few. Because of this, when we fly our training
missions and campaigns, we fly during times most convenient for
all time zones involved. The Jasta also has it's own online
"radio communications" available for pilots to meet each other in 24
hours a day, 7 days a week (except when on occasion when allied
sappers cut the lines!)
If you are an experienced pilot, perhaps you
would like to enjoy the thrill of realistic planned bombing runs on
enemy factories and bridges or want to fly in a fighter "Kette",
intercepting enemy bombers who are attacking our supply depots!
Perhaps you wish to gain recognition and earn the respect and
appreciation from others for your skills and contributions.
New Volunteer Pilot Candidates:
If you are new to the world of WW I sims, by
joining our Jagdstaffel (Jasta), you will meet and fly with other
fellow pilots who are interested in assisting you with the technical
questions we all have when starting out. The Jasta will also
assist you in learning the nuances of your Fokker DrI, D.VII or
Albatros D.III as you develop the flying skills necessary to be
victorious in the virtual skies over Europe! Enlist today!
