    S3 ARMA AVIATION CENTER OF EXCELLENCE


    The S3 ArmA Aviation Center of Excellence is conducting Rotary flight training in the month of January. This training is open to all troopers of the Regiment, regardless of MOS. We will be running the Ground School, Basic Rotary Wing and Advanced Rotary Wing courses. While these courses must be completed in order, they may be done over any period of time that suits the individual student - there is no time-out period. After completing each course, the student must pass each evaluation one on one with an Instructor Pilot.

    January Schedule

  2. Is the course available to irregulars?
     
  3. While the lack of answer to two of these threads will not prevent me from continuing to play on the Tac 1 server, I have to say that I find it disappointing to not even get a response.

    A simple, "Sorry, members only", would have been acceptable.

    All courses are Cav internal events, you have to be a member to participate. I understand your frustration about the lack of a reply, however understand that the 7th Cavalry is formed of real people with real jobs and real duties. While a reply that takes four days is nothing usual here, it also does no surprise me, after all we are all just human beings. We reply to things when they get seen, your post must have slipped through the cracks

    I think the reason for the lack of reply is that this is an announcement thread in the public announcements section of the forums. It gets repeated almost every month and thus people skip it in their 'to-read' list.

    You should sign up in the appropriate thread. This, however, is not it. If you have trouble finding it contact your SL so he can show you the ropes of the Cavalry

    @Chrystoph Going Forward these Aco threads will have a disclaimer for non-Cav members, Thanks for pointing it out.

    Additionally Many of the flight Tasks and maneuvers are available for public view - Fixed and Rotary. There was discussion at one time of hosting the actual course material on the Wiki, But as of now it is private material.

    Arma has two flight modes, basic and advanced. We fly with advance flight mode so that's where the instrument panel comes into play. Tac1 defaults to basic but you can change this within the game settings. While its not impossible to fly this with mouse and keyboard a joystick is definitely recommended.

  13. Yeah, I did some research after asking. I think I found what I need in this mod.

    Shouldn't need a mod unless you just want to use it, as AFM automatically brings those up.

  15. Sorry for being imprecise, I was thinking in general terms.
     
  16. I am still in the learning stages, and have not been able to get the "feel", and this should be what I need to do so.

    Yup, under Game options in Arma Main Menu, I't's built right in.

    Also Rough landings is odd as being enabled means you CAN make rough landings with no damage, whereas off means you Cannot make a rough landing without taking damage.
