Jasta 5 Mission Statement


NOTE:  The membership of Jasta 5 does not promote racism, historical revisionism or fringe political or philosophical views.    If you hold such views, please do not think that we share or support them.  We do not.  This website, the members it represents and the community of which they are a part, are dedicated to the enhancement, enjoyment and promotion of World War I flight sims.


Mission Statement:  The pilots of Jasta 5 are committed to developing the online combat flying skills of each member through training and practice in order to be successful in every engagement with their opponent. We value teamwork, expertise, loyalty, and humor.


Jasta 5 pilots fly various WWI Flight sims available.  Most fly Rise of Flight currently.

We fly together, creating new tales and fighting new battles in the air using planes lovingly referred to as crates, barrels and torch rags!  By flying together we add new dimensions to flying online and therefore our enjoyment.  We seek to assist others in becoming involved as active members of the online community of WWI era pilot enthusiasts.

Jasta 5 was a German squadron, called a Jagdstaffel or Jasta, during World War I.  We have re-created Jasta 5 in the 21st century on the world wide web in order to give our group an identity while playing online WWI flight sims.  As a re-creation of a German Jasta, when given the option, we fly for the Central Forces during tournament play. 

While we represent ourselves online as a unit of the German Air Service, we come from various nationalities and we do not represent, symbolize, promote or espouse any specific political or philosophical agendas or ideas.  This is a game and is for fun.  We invite you to join us!
