Character of the Unit (disclaimer).
The Regiment is a virtual aerial unit, the members of which are
passionate about the history of aviation and the flight simulators. We shall not
be connected with any ideology. The basis of our activity is fun and pleasure of
gaming and the possibility to meet interesting people, not only in Poland itself
1. Pułk Lotniczy is not, in that case, any attempt to emulate any
historical unit (including the 1. Pułk Lotniczy existing in Poland during the
1921-1939 period). Either naming or numbering are completely fictional and
solely convergent with the aforementioned historical unit. Our paint schemes do
not refer to any aerial units existing in Poland. Only the tactical Polish
markings on our aircrafts define nationality of the Regiment.
The Regiment consists of three squadrons – two of which are
strictly combat squadrons and one is a combat-training squadron. These are as
follows: 1. Eskadra Myśliwska [1st Fighter Squadron], 2. Eskadra Wywiadowcza
[2nd Reconnaissance Squadron] and Eskadra Szkolna „Flajkoty” [Training Squadron
The 1. Eskadra Myśliwska is a unit the aim of which is to destroy enemy and
escort friendly aircrafts. The 2. Eskadra Wywiadowcza specializes in destruction
of ground targets and performing reconnaissance. The Eskadra Szkolna is an
auxiliary unit to both of the aforementioned and its personnel is being trained
according to the chosen speciality of each member.
In the virtual sky of „Rise of Flight” the identity of members of the Regiment
is coded with a login in the following format: „1PL-[nickname]-[squadron]”.
Members of specified squdrons use the following tags accordingly: „1Esk”, „2Esk”
or „ESzk”. The „ESzk” tag is in use of either members of the Permanent Personnel
(instructors) or the Temporal Personnel (trainees) of the Eskadra Szkolna. Apart
from that, „Rekr” tag is used by recruits.
The Regiment has not found his patron yet, however both the Regiment itself and
the squadrons possess their own emblems.
