The Air Combat Dojo

“Black Belt — A white belt that never quit.” – UNKNOWN

The Dojo is the name of our community Discord server. The name ‘Dojo’ was chosen because our gaming concept is very close to how real dojos operate and we also use a belt system for grading our members whenever they achieve a milestone in their respective careers.

The Dojo is fully integrated with this website through our Discord bot, hence it’s imperative to join the dojo in order to be able to use this website as a competitor.

The Skynet application is always evolving as we continuously work on new features to improve your gaming experience even further.

About The Founder

Hey, Flanky here. Welcome to Situational Awareness!
Military Simulation, especially air combat has been my passion for as long as I can remember. Then a few other things like computer skills and a taste for competition, martial arts and sports were thrown into the mix. That’s how this website came about.
What started as a small fan site back in 2012 has evolved over the years and it’s been a wonderful and fulfilling journey where I learned a lot.
That said, nothing could have been possible without the passion and the support of the community, so a big thank you to everyone who has been sharing the virtual skies with us.
