Possible Ysflight Blue angels revival?

Post by Mustang » Sun Oct 03, 2021 1:43 am

I've been thinking recently about doing a revival of the YSflight Blue angels since the last incarnation of the blues was disbanded since no one wanted to join the blues for the 2020 team, would anyone who is good at aerobatics be interested in joining? I'm curious about this.

You'd probably run into the same problem of not finding enough pilots. Back when we did have the YS Blue Angels, it was Coop flying all of the planes via replay. Even the current YSTB, being a live team, is made up of people who weren't originally from the YS community.

I wouldn't be able to have the time nor the patience to do every single one of the Blue Angels like coop did if I'm being honest. I wasn't really expecting anyone who would want to join a possible reincarnation of the YSF Blue angels anyway, I wanted to at least ask to see who would want a reincarnation of the blues with a live demo team like the YTB.

I could be a solo, but just know that I am very new, and may need a bit of practice before I can really fly with you guys.

I would suggest being either Blue angel 2 or 3 since you are new to YS, you'll spend more time in the diamond but gain experience for formation flying and aerobatics in general, blue angels 5 and 6 are more advanced positions because they spend less time in the formation, having someone experienced flying solo demonstrations is preferred more.
