Greetings Sergeant, Welcome to the 91st
Here are your Getting Started Orders
Membership in the 91st is a Privilege, it is not a Right

Just as it did in WWII, Membership in the today's 91st comes with some basic responsibilities that all Pilots need to follow


1 - Welcome Sergeant

We all start life in the 91st as a Sergeant

Become familiar with our General Orders, they are the basics of our operation

The following points will help you feel more at home as you begin your journey


2 - Introduce yourself
Start by Making a post in the Forum to introduce yourself, give a brief Flight History and your desire to fly with the 91st.

3 - Use your Personal Log Book
All of your 91st Flight Activity must be maintained in your Personal Online Logbook. Pilots are given a link to their Logbook when they first Join the 91st. You can always find the link to your Log Book on the Pilots Logbook Page of our website

4 - Squadron Assignment
On Joining, Pilots will be assigned to one of the 4 Squadrons
The 322nd, 323rd, 234th, or the 401st.

5 - Welcome to the Hop Campaign
Download your Squadron's Paint from the Quartermasters Office
You will use the B-17 in your Squadron's Texture to fly Phase 1 of the Hop Campaign. The Hops are designed as training and familiarization flights.
They also serve as a means to earn Rank

6 - Fly your Hops with Real Weather
in Real Time
and do not use Slew


7 - What's in Your Log Book Sergeant?



That Book will be the only way to earn Promotions and Advance within the 91st
