In order to fly a chopper or a plane you need a pilot kit. Follow these directions to be able to get this kit on a local server.
1. Start your local server and open the console (~).
2. Enter the following: sv.numPlayersNeededToStart 1
3. Hit "Enter". Game should now start with a 90 second wait time.
4. Create a squad.
5. Request the pilot kit near your main flag.
There have been reports in the PR forum about bugs with the practice map, though they don't seem to affect everyone. Definitely start on a local server until you get the hang of it. That way Sam Hoy will never play on the TG server again. :)
Its a pity we dont have oman wac on the server list, I like that one.
Often on a map with a carrier you will find half way or three quarters of the way through the game that the carrier has spare helis on board because most of the team is fighting inland.
It would do no harm to practise in those cases imo. It also happens with the blackhawk on al basrah sometimes.
The blackhawk has rotors made from chocolate but it is the easiest to take off without crashing while most prefer the littlebird overall because it is responsive.
To practise, take baby steps. Take off and advance forward 6 feet, hover and land (just exit if its being a pain). Increase the distance, etc eventually your'll improve
If you find yourself in a fair fight, then you have obviously failed to plan properly.
Do us a favor and don't practice on the public TG server. There was, at one point, a public server called "Flight Practice" or something to that effect; it had a low respawn time for the players and the planes.
If you can't request kits, and it says something about needing additional players, you don't need the kit to drive and fly. Just hop in and wait for it to warm up.
The trouble with the world is that the stupid are cocksure and the intelligent are full of doubt. ~
I have a tendency to key out three or four things and then let them battle for supremacy while I key, so there's a lot of backspacing as potential statements are slaughtered and eaten by the victors. ~
