Forum guidelines

Hello, and Welcome to the Flying Tigers Group Message Board (aka Forum)

The primary purpose of this board is to enable members of the Flying Tigers to interact amongst one another, in a positive and constructive manner.

In order for the board to function efficiently, there are a number of rules that members must follow. Please take the time to read the rules carefully, and to adhere to them.

Your forum ID must be the same as your Virtual Airline pilot account ID.

Explained briefly below, are each of the Sub-forums, and Rules:

1) Flying Tigers Group Announcements:
This is where any news concerning the Flying Tigers Group or any of its airlines is posted. Please remain strictly on topic here. Remember to check this forum regularly when anything new is posted. Only management may post new topics here. Members, however, are allowed to post replies.

2) News
- Real World Aviation:
Any non FTG news from the virtual aviation world goes here.

- Real World Aviation:
Any news from real world aviation goes here!

If possible, please try and provide a link to the source of information.

3) Pilot Forum
Any aviation question (Virtual or Real life) may be posted here.
- Getting Started
Collection of tutorials, FAQs and other mostly read-only, informational content.

4) Screenshots
Post screenshots of your flights here. You may also post pics of real world flights, or spotting events.

5) Off topic
- Off Topic
Anything not FS or aviation related goes here. Forum rules still apply. No is still to be no SPAM.

- Love Boat
Please keep this politics related.

6) Wish List
If you have a request for anything flight sim related post it here. However, don’t post requests for payware scenery, movies, MP3’s etc. Before posting, please also check avsim, and other sources, as well as searching the “Flight Training” forum to see if your request has already been answered.

7) Flight Training
Post your flight training (both flightsim and real) related questions, remarks and other comments here. Please stay strictly on the topic in this section -- the Pilot Forum is the appropriate venue for more freeform but still aviation-related commentary.

8) Man Spricht Deutsch
You may speak German in this forum.
“Sie können Deutsches in diesem Forum sprechen.”

9) Forum Francophone
You may speak French in this forum.
“Vous pouvez parler français dans ce forum.”
