We ask that you skim through this (though nobody can be expected to read it all!)
as it may be used/referred to time to time. Note that you agree to all terms by
These agreements are not specific to each member, and are unnegotiable--obeying these
guidelines can (and will) affect your status, position, and ultimate career within the squadron.
WARNING: Direct Violation of Any of These Terms Will Be Grounds For Dismissal.
1) Recruitment Terms. Under no circumstances will approval/admissions be based upon
sex, age, race, nationality, or any other descriminatory terms. Membership is based
solely on a voluntary basis and is equal opportunity.
a) Right of "Rank Shuffling". The NJG Staff reserves the right to skip members
up in rank as they see fit, provided that the scores from the Flight Skills and
Assessment Tests (herein referred to as FAST) are complimentary to this
b) Starting Rank. All members will be started at the lowest rank unless: 1) "Rank
Shuffling" occurs 2) Starting rank is as an officer or officer position.
c) Familiarization with Axis Planes. All members--except those already
"Certified," will recieve a familiarization course with both the FW-190 and the
ME-109. This is to provide a measure of preparedness since we are an axis
squadron, and in case of missions which do not allow Allied aircraft.
2) Flight Times Agreement. All members MUST agree with, comply with, and obey the
a) Squadron Meets. Squadron meets will be held anywhere from1-7 times per week.
Many will be voluntary, but some may be mandatory. Mandatory events MUST
be attended at all costs. Please refer to flight regulations (Section 4 a) for these
I) Exception of Mandatory Events. The officer or person in charge of you must
be notified in order for your absence to be excused.
b) Non-Meet Flight Times. The NJG stresses flight time severely. All members must
make their best attempt to show up often in the meet area. Please refer to flight
regulations (Section 4 b) for these times.
c) Wars. Several wars may occur during the year, perhaps more than one per month.
The rules for wars are identical to those for mandatory squadron meets.
3) Behavioral Issues. All members will consistently conduct themselves in a mature,
respectful manner. Reports of departure from positive presentation of onself
will precede administrative action, which will be determined by the collective
staff and/or parties involved and witnesses. Consistent outstanding manners
and courtesies will be rewarded in an effort to amend the atmosphere of the MA.
4) Flight Regulations. Members will try to the extent of their ability to stay with squadron
teammates and allies, if any are present. No member will consistently or
malaciously use offensive tactics, or any tactics which the Staff deems as
detractive to the atmosphere of the flight (e.g. repetitive "Boom & Zoom").
a) During Squadron Meets. Members are expected to remain with their squadron
partners in the following fashion, the topmost being the preference:
I) Members of your assigned Kette.
II) Members of your assigned Gruppe.
III) Other Squadron Members.
IV) Squadron Allies.
V) Non-squadron members (this includes "rival" squadrons).
b) During Non-Squadron Meets. Members are expected to follow the guidelines set
in Section 4-a.
c) During Wars. Members will ONLY fly with their assigned Kette. If these members
are not present, that member may then join another.
5) Direct Ignorance of Issued Orders. Orders are very, very rare within our squadron. However,
obeying the few orders that are given is absolutely mandatory, and ignoring this
may be used as grounds for dismissal.
All of these are subject to change without notice by any of the staff members to amend a situation
which we feel should be part of the successful operation of the squadron. Reprisal for violating these
guidelines will be scaled to the manner and severity of the offense.
