DCS: UH-1H Workshop

Introduction to DCS and UH-1H for the Beginner

We will be conducting a series of ongoing Saturday training workshops to introduce new aviators to DCS and the UH-1H.

These will be taught by Lt Col Tom Lundberg(Ret.) who has over 5000 hrs in all variants of the UH-1. Lt Col Lundberg also spent time as an Instructor Pilot (IP) for Basic Transition, Instrumentation, Gunnery, Tactics, and Nap-Of-the-Earth(NOE) teaching courses. He also was a Standardization Pilot; one who trains the Instructor Pilots.

No experience is necessary. If you have ever wanted to give DCS a try and have not known where to start and enjoy a calm and relaxed environment with like-minded others, this is the place for you.
