        Well done. This has made me decide to shelve my next mission idea and start an Air campaign for our pilots. Perhaps a joint ops mission in this vein...

        Hmm.

          Given these TTP's, it would be really cool if you could find a way to create an Airwing training template. With different 'stations' around the map to simulate different scenarios where infantry and rotary/fixed wing to practice the procedures. Just an idea. I wish i knew more about mission building or id try it. I can only do basic stuff. hah

            Given that Arma is a video game, it's often easy to fail to appreciate why these protocols exist.

            While it's all fun and games to strap yourself onto a 30mm hell bringer and cause a stall from recoil, I think Arma pilots (myself included) should remember that they're a support asset first, and a death machine second. If that means you orbit for hours on end, so be it. The best pilots think about the team first and showboating last.

            That being said, you can still have fun. Like I said, Arma is just a video game, but if you're going to call yourself a "professional" Arma pilot then you need to have the patience of a Saint, despite the lack of consequence for loss of life in a virtual environment. For some people this is a challenge and adds to the fun of the game, and for some people it's silly. That's why some people love to fly and others don't.

                    Considring that we only have one server up.
                    It will be difficult to a training/practice map. Not interfering with ongoing games.

                    Unless we can have small number of practice missions for TG Battle drills and to practice up. That's separate from our main server. This would be great. Our own proving ground. Let's cross fingers and see what could be. ;)

                            That would be really cool. For me, the actual flight is the easy part. But learning the correct comms, procedures and terminology is what will take practice.

                              There are no 9 lines. Check links carefully.
