(Thanks to Styk for the video, used for convenience, not vfa-49 hate)




Current members:
CO: Drahon (rear admiral, lower half) Flathatta 1
Flight lead 2: Shutter (rear admiral, upper half) Flathatta 2
Wingman 1: Doomsday (captain) Flathatta 3
Flathatta 4: This could be you!

Why you should join:
• Activity: All VFA-131 members are active pilots, both on the 171st's teamspeak and in the virtual sky. You'll never need to look too far for someone to go kill stuff with. We kick ass universally.
• Frequent events: The Flathattas are committed to having many internal CVW-171 events. These include air to air missions on a much larger scope than anyone on servers experiences, and air to ground campaigns, as well as multirole missions. Only with the Flathattas are you guaranteed to always have the option of starting one of these. This also guarantees rapid advancement through the ranks.
• Mad skills, you will learn them. The Flathattas offer the quickest training route in the 171st, as exemplified by our newest member, doomsday. We only need your word you want to fly among our ranks.
• You gain access to the 171st teamspeak, the entirety of the forum, and all the other perks that comes with flying with the best. But with us, you're flying with the best of the best.

Requirements for joining us:
Being who we are, we have six simple requirements additional to the 171st's that you must meet to fly with us:
• Have some Experience in the art of dogfighting.
• Be of 15 years of age or above
• Good character, perseverance
• have a joystick
• Must have a YSFHQ account and mention the account name in the application.
• Probable long term activity


So, if you think you're up to it, or you at least want to try, why don't you APPLY NOW?

If I wasn't 323rd this would be tempting, my advice to anyone is to apply, when I applied (and failed :P) for the 171st it taught me something!
YSFHQ Elected Overlord
Overlord of VMFA-125 (CVW-171)
Previously Supreme Overlord of 323rd CAW

If you see me post like this in a thread pay attention!

Nah, I'm still part of the 49th (whether or not we even appear to exist).

The 171st is kinda like the Marine Corps they don't accept just any one and once your accepted you must maintain your training and proficiency level.
So by all means apply and test your metal. :D
They dont promise you anything but the chance to be one of them. ;)

There are two requirements I don't meet:
The age:I'm 12
JoyStick:Dont have one but can fly fine with mouse
And yes I can keep a good character...no really.

Three problems:

1- Sorry, that's not how you apply, there's an obvious "apply now" button.
2- Requirements are mandatory to be a flathatta. As it is, you don't meet basic 171st requirements, one of which is being 13-14 or above.
3- Dual combat squad membership is not permitted in the squad, and you're a leader of your own squad.

Sorry, but no go.

If there were a war and I was allied with a fighter squadron clearing enemy bases for them then yeah it would be an all out battle.

I know that we allow our members to be a part of a VA. Don't know about everyone else though. I don't think that it would conflict with being in a combat squad.

I don't get why there are age and joystick requirements. I guess I can understand the age, seeing as some of the younger guys need a little bit more growing up to do. However, if someone can fly just as good with a mouse and keyboard as they do with a joystick, why not let them. Also, Why do you have a limit set on the number of pilots per subsquad? If someone applies but is rejected because all the slots are full, wouldn't that encourage them to go somewhere else?

I don't know, everyone has their methods, as well as reasons for those methods, and yours seem to be doing just fine for you. Just curious is all.

Only the weak boast, only the humiliated insult. Honor is not shown by your prowess in combat, but by your character and ability to uphold others and stay loyal to them. Honor is union, honor is discipline, honor is pride.
