"The ProudBirds Of North America"


Welcome to the ProudBirds Virtual Fighting Wing. We are an Internet Virtual Flying Squadron based on flying the greatest WWII flight Simulator ever made called: "iL-2 Sturmovik, Forgotten Battles". Our squadron is comprised of a group of people from around the World, dedicated to providing an excellent multi-player environment for flying in the Virtual skies. The ProudBirds provide a location for pilots to meet friends that are always ready to fly, have some fun, and learn.


The ProudBirds VFW was founded by a dedicated group of people with the idea for a different type of virtual squad.

A squad that understood that it did not have to be militant to have brilliant and excellent Virtual PC pilots. Although we do not have a structured rank system like the military, the squad utilizes the techniques and practices of the military where applicable.


There is a wealth of knowledge within our squad, and a great respect between our pilots that is demonstrated daily. These pilots strive for realism and seek to master the simulation. This is what we enjoy.

If you are interested in joining us, please email me.

There are no pre-requisites for you to join, nor are there any requirements or expectations of you after you join. Just the opportunity to have a lot of fun.


No experience necessary or needed !! Just the desire to have a lot of fun and learn...

Thanks in advance.

PS, if you are in Southern California or anywhere in California and dont have a squad, your welcomed to apply.

Remember Newbies are welcomed as well as experienced pilots.

Guys, the ProudBirds website just had and extreme makeover.
Seriously !! A very kind gentleman and his beloved wife, were so generous in volunteering to give the site a makeover. I just want to publicly thank them for their awsome work. Im not very learned about website making and stuff like that, but im so thank full that people share my vision of this type of squadron. I thank you again from the bottom of my heart...Both of these beautifull people fly PC simmulations so they understand that this is in our blood and we do it for the passion of flight.
Perhaps many of you are into historical squadrons and all, I respect that and love it as well.
The ProudBirds are not historical. Just a squadron for fun and a place to belong.
A place that you can tell your kid, hey Son, Im a ProudBird of North America, or Of Europe. Now, that to me is awsome !!
Sometimes little things that can help create a bond between a father and son, is worth more than anything to me.
I came up with this idea of a squadron because iL2, has helped create a bond between my little wingman and I that I know will last for ever !!!
Right now, this squadron is being started from the ground up and I dont expect to have many members for a long time.
The beauty of it all is, that as long as the love for flight is in my blood, the ProudBirds will exist....

If you share this vision with me, if, You even, just want to have a place to belong to, with out any restrictions or prerequisites, Your welcomed to be a ProudBird.



Peace,

Now that I have my sig working, im going to get my Comms setup so that we can get some flights going...

Maybe we can get some more guys so that we can do some Squadron VS squadron flights...I know the 7JG77 already is interested in a coop engagement, but I guess we will have to do some training before we engage in squad vs squad flights..

I need a lot of training still and I will be updating my system also...

Thanks for giving me that chance to belong to this new squadron... I look foward to having a lot of fun and learning. I really appreciate that you guys are not requiring a lot of experience from pilots. I guess that is one of the main reasons I never joined a squadron...
Hey since we both are from Southern California, it would be cool to have a squadron gathering at the ProudBirds Restaurant in Los Angeles Airport !!!

Ive been there and its really cool. They got some WW2 planes there on display and a P51 mustang as well. Maybe we can have a squad reunion there someday....


Oh, I also want to say that im thankfull for you guys not having flight quotas or minimums. That means a lot to me, since I need to spend some family time with my little wingman and at least I know that I wont get kicked off the squadron if I can fly all the time...

So, Im ready to get in the sky..Need a lot of training but hey, im just glad and proud to be a ProudBird !!!


later,

Hey Phoenix!!!

Welcome onboard man !!!
Yeah, thats one of the main things that the ProudBirds will never do. We are not going to put flying first then family later. Never will that happen in this squad.
The priorities will always be your family first then hobby second.
I believe that this is extremely important to me as it is to many people.
I know we dont have too many members yet, and im planning to only have 12 members max for now. I know its not a lot but at least it will make it a bit more special to belong to the ProudBirds of North America and Europe.
I havent got a chance to talk to Scotto the CO for the European wing. But im sure he is going to have the 12 member max to begin with also. The time zone is really to blame. When im asleep his awake flying, so its hard to get intouch, but either way, he's working hard updating the European site.

Hey, regarding the ProudBirds restaurant over at LAX..Yeah, thats a neat place. My co workers took me there for lunch on my Birthdate. It was truly awsome !!! Now, you know where I got the Idea for the ProudBirds name heh....

I loved that place...I forgot to take my camera to take some pics with the Spitfire, P51 and if I recall the Corsair..Had an awsome lunch, all you can eat !!!

Hopefully we can get some more guys from Southern California and yep, we can either have a Christmas get together or just a squadron night !! That would totally rock man !!!

So welcomed again and glad that you are proud to be a ProudBird !!!



Peace man,

Hey Scotto,
I think your sig is working now. For some reason the pic wasnt coming out, but its ok now..
I went for the smaller pic to conform to forum standards.

Hope we can all get together soon and some flying online.
I need to train Phoenix and SabFire. These guys are really excited about the squad.. SabFire needs some system tweaking, and since he lives really close to me here in California, Im going over his pad to fix his system...

Take care buddy !!!

Let me know if you need any help with the European site..

Peace,

Hello Gents,

Just want to update you all that the ProudBirds Of North America have joined the Forgotten Wars..

Yesterday I had my first mission, and it was a blast to fly with on the allied side. It was totally an immersive experience !!!

We all had Roger Wilco, so that made it even more immersive. I just really felt like I was there. And the most important thing, is that I knew that the better I performed the better it was for the sake of the mission.

I think many of you are getting pretty tired of mindless dogfighting. I think its ok to do that here and there, but to truly find the beauty of this awsome ww2 simulation, one has to fly coops, or in this virtual online war.

Its so amazing....

Well guys, I hope many of you that are still looking for a squad, well, just want to let you know that we are looking for a few Proud Birds...

Hey Boss,

Im almost airworthy and tonight hopefully we can get online to do some training flights.
Im really excited about flying with the ProudBirds..
I cant wait to get more experience so I can join the squad in the Forgotten War.
It sounds like you really enjoyed your first mission..
I dont think im just ready for that but the more we do practice flights and formation flying Im going to get the hang of it.

Thanks again for helping me out.

Hey Phoenix,
Thanks for the cool words man.
Yeah, I had tons of fun with the Forgotten war...

Im glad that you were able to get on HL last night. I know we werent able to get in the sky since we had some tech issues to resolve, but im really happy that youre excited about flying. Thats the right spirit..
Its all about having fun man.
Hopefully we can fill up the remaining 10 slots we have open for pilots and we can all fly together on the forgotten war. That would totally rock !!!
It would be nice to get more guys from California so that we can all be on the same time zone, that would help big time with mission coordinating and getting in the Forgotten war.

Well, lets take it one day at a time. No big rush at all..
Lets have fun and learn.

Did you notice how many folks wanted to jump in and help us out?
Thats why I love this FB community. Everyone is willing to lend a helping hand. THey noticed that we were having tech problems and wanted to help. That was really nice man...

I personallly want to thank all you guys that were on last night trying to help us out. I salute you all !!

I would Like to publicly welcome our newest Pilot to the ProudBirds Of North America.

"Boosher-PBNA"

Welcome to the ProudBirds Boosher. I know time is something we dont all have and specially since "life happens".
So you will be just at home with us. We meet in Hyperlobby and you will see us with the PBNA letters preceeding our callsigns.
That way we all get grouped together by Hyperlobby.
I noticed that you like dogfighting at the sturmo tournomant, that cool, that where I met a bunch of really cool friends. I may drop by in there for a dog fight or two., Lately Ive been flyng dogfights and the Forgotten War.
As soon as you feel ready you can also join the ProudBirds in the Forgotten War. I dont know if you have the link but im going to post it here.

http://fogwar.luftwaffe.net/index.php
chek it out. its pretty cool !!

But first things first. get your sig going and we will take it from there.

Well, Boosher, again on behalf of the ProudBirds Of North America, Welcome to this awsome virtual family !


Only 9 slots left for pilots to join. Lets see if there are more ProudBirds out there....


Peace,

Clear Skies and Tailwinds....

Hi Scott, I just went to see the website, unfortunately there wasn't much there yet. Then I went to see your forum, but was burried underneath pop up adds ... Not a very inviting way to get people to start writing there.

Hope you guys settle soon, but keep in mind that not many enjoy pop ups and other add or spy ware flying around.

Good luck with your squad. I'd love to join a squad that is Europe based, but I'm not too fond of the place you picked to have your discussions.

Cya around

Hello Miss-Kitten,

First of all, I would like to apologize for all those darned popup ads. Even if you use a pop-up ad remover program, you usually get pop-up ads of their own product..So go figure....

Anyway, yes, I hate those pop ups as well. As you can see our forum is currently recovering from a hack attack. Thats why there are hardly any posts or history. You see, we are a squadron that is young and just getting off the ground.

We are not going to beg anyone to be part of our squadron. Although we have a few members, each and every single one, is proud to be part of the ProudBirds. To us, its the content of our philosophy that matters. Pop-up ads wont change that a bit. Although I can understand what a pain in the %utt they are. Specially for me since im on a dialup service.

Regarding the European website, well, for the time being, we decided that it was easier to manage one website at least until the squad matured a bit with more members. So if you go to our main page by clicking on our logo, it will take you to the site and you will be able to see that both squads have been integrated. If you go to the roster, you will see that there is a roster for the ProudBirds of Europe.
I know it not really pretty and all, but like I mentioned earlier. To us, what matters most is the content of our philosophy and our vision.
We are in this place to have fun, learn and make new friends who will always be willing to help each other out.
But really, mostly to have tons and tons of fun flying this awsome WW2 flight sim.
Our main website is also free. And being hosted by tripod. So there may be a few pop ups here and there, at least not as much as the ones on the forum.
As the squad gets bigger, perhaps things will change, but for now, this is the best we can do.

Miss Kitten, it would be a pleasure to have you belong to the ProudBirds, if you would only see beyond appearances. Anyway, I appreciate your constructive criticsm. It can only make things much better..

Take care and hope to see ya in the virtual skies..

Hi there....

I read something on your site and have a question:

<b/i/smilies/16x16_smiley-mad.gif We the ProudBirds stand for fun, freedom and we put our priorities like our family, kids, work, and God first[/b]

Which God are you referring to ?



Lixma,

The Devil`s proudest Advocate.

Hello Lixma,

I usually don't answer to questions like this, but since you have politely questioned, I will politely answer.

Im referring to my God, or your God...

That is all.
