Bio

The resident queen of GR and Caps Bitch when RC runs out of KY. Own all the modules but you can usually find me riding in the F14, F16, JF17, helo’s or the back of [GR] Seahorse.

My real name is Tom, I’m based in one of the largest counties in the United Kingdom, a fully qualified electrician by trade im an area manager for a large engineering company based in the uk. I have been in GR over two years, making the admin/veteran role in 12 months, and ive been kept busy running the discord with the other admins for Cap now for about 18 months

GR videos got me into DCS and I was hooked from the beginning having been a fan of aviation from a very young age. GR’s unique approach to a balance of fun and professionalism sits perfectly for me and i think personally is what makes GR so popular, it nails the balance brilliantly, love working with the boys/girls(yes there ares some) in GR we all get on very well and are a tight little family even having our own rows over dinner .

GR for me hasn’t just been about my obsession with aviation, its been escapism in the form of a clickable cockpit, AMRAAMS and great people, not just the members but the followers/donators in our discord and facebook community. A few years ago after a second attempt on my own life i was diagnosed with Bipolar disorder. It was whilst on sick leave browsing youtube to pass the time i found GR. Im glad to say that thanks to our NHS im alot better, but I genuinely believe that GR and the people in it are as much to thank for keeping me on the straight and narrow not just to be able to fly DCS but as just people to talk to. Ive met a few GR members and i’m proud to call them personal friends.

Bio

I am a retired Army Aviator, flying Ah-1s & Ah-64a.
Desert Storm Vet
Became an Emergency Room Nurse after.
Started DCS in 2013, and didn’t think I’d like the Helos, so I didn’t bother with them till a couple Years ago. I am sorry I waited to try them out! I thought ‘ After flying the best, why be disappointed’… Boy, was I wrong. I forgot how much I missed the UH-1… It is still a Cadillac!
I am truly amazed at the skill, knowledge base, and good nature of the guys in the Grim Reapers. I am a cancer survivor, and have never had any rude cracks about my voice cracking. This is a testament to the caliber of people that are attracted to this Squadron. Just hard to Sync up with your friends 13 hours ahead of you in Australia.
