    Default Anyone a skilled jet pilot looking for an apprentice of sorts?

    I want to get better at piloting a jet, but I find it hard to make any progress in air superiority or conquest I either get shot down immediately or can't get a jet, I'd really enjoy someone who is skilled to accompany me in an air superiority or conquest game and help me improve, or both of us go in an empty server and dogfight

    There isn't much you can do about getting a jet other then to camp the spawn button on it, its all server population dependent. Rebind your space button or something that is easy to use to pull up is also a big help. I recommend watching this guys bf3 flight tutorials, its how I learned to fly for the better part the rest is just feeling it out an practice practice practice.

    In the CTE, they're changing flight mechanics to directly reflect your speed-to-turn ratio. What this means is that maintaining 313mph (the fastest turn speed for every jet) is no longer a necessity. This opens up dogfights into more than just a mundane circleball fest. Generally, running 20mm in the stealth jet is optimal, as it does most damage to air vehicles based on distance. You run that with laser guided to have the most impact on the ground while still being able to dominate the air. If you're dogfighting somebody, you peek your minimap and focus on maintaining 313mph while trying to subtly undercut their turns. What I mean by this is that you can use ECM jammers to make yourself invisible on your enemy's minimap and try to get on his six while he's unaware. Or, if you know they're repeatedly turning in a circle vertically or horizontally, don't blindly follow them, use speed advantages by flying up and cutting your turns. This is obviously hard to explain.

    CTE? I've heard that many times but i don't know what it means, Also it must be hard to explain cause it doesn't make much sense other than the turn fest and ecm jammer

    Can you explain what you mean by "speed advantages" and "cutting your turns" That's the only parts that confuses me atm

    speed advantage for cutting turns: This is good to compare with driving a car. When you drive slow your turn is tide. When you are faster the Radius is higher.
    But you even may not get too slow because then you will be standing still at some point in time.

    Now when you bring this up to a dogfight: When you get too slow you turn so slow and can even lose your aerodynamics and fall to the ground. And slower = Easy target

    On the other hand when you are too fast the other pilot can easily outturn you and get on your tail and shoot you down.

    InGame this can get you mad. 2 skilled pilots (and you are one of them) and you go in a dogfight this can end in 5min just turning cycles without any results -_- .


    I am NOT the BEST pilot, but pretty decent (Division 1 in Germany on place round about 3000 ) .

    So I can teach you some flying. Or at least the Basics :)

    When you wnat to know more about the Manuvieurs and so on( I can teach them you too ) : How about hopping down to the guys from WarThunder (flight simulator PvP ), cause they have to use them all the time and can teach you them,too :)

    If you like I can even put up a Guide for flying :)
