I'll just give you some copypasta from my OFFICIAL AND SUPER SECRETLY CONFIDENTIAL (but hopefully declassified) application form.
See you in the skies soon!
Sláinte Fightin' Irish!
Before we run into any major disappointments along this message, let me reassure you that I am (unfortunately?) a member of the male of the species, a fact which my first name tends to obscure.
Getting straight to business now, I was a happily retired simmer not too long ago (at the ripe old age of 24) who had been flying warbirds ever since he could hold a joystick (the mechanical kind). In the old days (roughly two years ago), I was flying with a Yank squadron known as the Blazing Magnums. Great chaps, all of them, but time (and timezones) came between our brotherly love (not just for flying ââ‚¬â€ actually, the love was not just brotherly either).
After an extended leave of absence, I've come out of retirement. And for a while now, I've been yanking my stick and drinking all by myself, which is a shame coming from someone who has to maintain his country's reputation for being the land of beer (no, seriously, ours really is ââ‚¬â€ but yours is the land of drinking it on an alcoholympic level).
To make a short story even shorter, yours seems like a really fine bunch and I'd like you all to give me a shot. I'm a simming nut, enjoying both SERIOUS HISTORICAL ACCURACY FOR THE BETTERMENT OF THE UNDERSTANDING OF THE STUDY OF THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE AERODYNAMICS OF THE ART OF SHOOTING AT FLYING THINGS FROM YOUR OWN FLYING THING, as well as getting really drunk and having massive TB-3 free-for-alls.
Also, I... (give me a moment here, this is pretty hard to muster up ââ‚¬â€ you know with my ancestors looking down from up above and all) ...I like Guinness. Yes, I really do. Even been to HQ Headquarters while passing through Dublin.
To sum it up, what I expect from you is... Well, not much really. People I can practice my favorite armchair hobby with (I'm making it sound here like I have many non-armchair hobbies), drink beer and have good laughs with. From me, you can expect pretty much the same.
As for the technicalities, I have all the required Basement Geek Air Force's equipment (my fiancee's words, not mine): TeamSpeak, TrackIR, plastic thingies to measure angles on the mini map, oversized beer mugs, kleenex to mop up excess drool from staring at juicy noseart, etc.
Hope to hear from you soon,
Sláinte (I googled it up),

P.S. Oh, and I really love carrier ops. Love, love, love. Love to stretch them cables.
