And are there any benifits? Do I apply or do I get asked, is there any particular etiquette? How much time do I have to devote to it?

And check the listings and see if there's a Squadron that catches your eye.Maybe you want to fly with a VVS Squadron that only flies Russian aircraft or a Luftwaffe Squadron... you get my drift.Or perhaps you want to find a Squadron that flies all types of a\c.
My advice would be to try and find 1 that's in your own timezone,so that Squadron nights don't mean getting up at 3 in the morning so you can fly with them.

My advice on joining a squadron: look for one that matches your interest. Apply to a few of these and think carefully about which one seems right. This saves you from having to waste their time (and yours) if it's not really what you wanted. If you don't like the first one you join, keep looking! You'll find the right one if you persist. I had great fortune with my first one, but there is no sense in doing what you don't want.

Have fun,
Mike

Another way is to spend time in the Ubi or HyperLobby game lobbies at the time you're usually there and see which squadrons are active at those times. You can usually pick squadrons because the members will all have the same prefix in front of their user name. When you find a group who seem to fit your style and flying times, ask questions. Most will readily direct you to their website or recruiting officer if they're willing to accept new members.
