I dunno how to fly and when I go to training all it has is a few landing and takeoff's which are just videos

Can someone train me?

1. Watch the videos to learn how to take off and land on carriers.
2. Go to single missions and under Air Force (I believe), choose either IJN, USN or RN. Then under mission type choose a carrier-based plane ... the F4U or F6F for example for Americans, or the Seafire for Britain. I think that there are D3A1 and A5M2 carrier missions for Japan.
3. Read the mission briefings for these missions. Basically they recreate the conditions of the training videos so you can try them yourself. Sometimes the carrier is moving and sometimes it is not.

You can also find friendly and enemy carrier groups on the Coral Sea map in the Quick Mission Builder.

Before you try these missions, you'll have to assign some keys for important (but not defined) functions often necessary for carrier ops, including:
- Tail hook lower/raise
- Wheel chocks in/out
- Canopy open/close
- Seat raise and lower
- Wings fold/unfold
- Manual landing gear retract/lower (for F4F Wildcat).

Carrier landings are part luck, part skill so have fun! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

I mapped my keyboard controls so they're easier to remember, and added user- defined commands</A>

JointOps (http://www.joint-ops.com/)

Go there. Enroll in their Basic Flight School. In the meantime set up a Quick Mission, pick a plane you like, and fly.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

I agree totally with Bearcat99.
@Wolfe1941, Joint Ops is perfect for you.
It specializes on pilots who just got this sim. They will teach you the basics and also settings for your machine, video cards etc.
They have scheduling for when classes start and you can join up, an orientation meeting (to see if your comp is working properlly etc.). You also have a choice to fly Axies or Allies . The basic flight school is challenging but fun,really fun. Just click on the Joint Ops Bearcat has supplied for you and select which simulation you fly, and the rest will be history. I know you will find this a valuable experience. Best Regards. TC

<S>. I've just played IL-2 FB at my buddy's house just to see what IL-2 felt like.

It's quite different and more realistic than Aces High II, I can tell you that.

Anyway, I took up my Spitfire LF.Mk.VIII (CW) out for a spin and climb to 15K against some foes. I generally prefer to Boom and Zoom in a late variant Spitfire, so i flew right over an A6M5a from about 800 yrds out and dove on him/her. The first thing he/she did was pull straight up into a head on, and I, being a rather average marksman, flew under the plane and rolled like no tomorrow. So i tried again. This time, the Zeke just made a split-s to dodge. So I tried to attack astern (not smart) and the Zeke just made a low yo yo.

Is there any efficient way to make them lose their energy so that they are to slow to dodge? Or should I go back to my Spitfire LF.Mk.Vb and be one of the 'dodgers'?

Aye, I could use some training as well...joint ops is only FB (which I don't have which is an issue)...so that leads directly back does someone wanna do a one-on-one or a small group wanna fly around a bit....speaking of which I cant find servers for PF standalone, so that will be an issue
