Hi, a few of my squad mates have been flying after a long break and we have realized we need some training. Could anyone recommend training we could use to build team work (flying in pairs of two and 4), tactics and other tips we could use for flying.

An info on how to use the P47 would be nice. Apart from the standard boom and zoom, anything else even on different planes.

There is a flight site that does training you can join with an instructor in realtime, but I do not know the name, this link will help in the meantime

Shaw's Fighter Combat is a very good source for information on teamwork and the tactics he describes in detail work in the game. Don't let someone discredit the information with idiotic claims that Fighter Combat applies only to Jets.

One of the first things you can learn is communication and one of the best ways to learn communication is during non-combat related flying when you are free to work on formation flying.

If you always work on making sure that your wingman is on your wingtip (right or left), then, you will always be improving communication. You will know when you have learned because your wingman will always be on your wingtip or moving to your wingtip.

Once you have arrived at that ability, then, you and your wingman are in a position to begin utilizing the line abreast formation for tactical offense and defense like:

The bracket
The half split
The sandwich

A well flown wing pair (even with inferior planes) can defeat any single enemy.

A poorly flown wing pair is worse than flying alone.

You must, at least, learn to communicate.

After awhile, once the hard work is done, it is amazing to find your wingman in the same place at the same time even after considerable SA overload almost as if you and your wingman have developed a capacity for telepathy. This is merely, of course, a matter of familiarity between you and your wingman adapting to similar conditions in a similar manner.

Many times I emerge from a fight and ask "Where are you?" and the answer is returned:"Turn 90 degrees right and I'll be on your wingtip".

AS a graduate of the JO BFS (basic flight school) I highly recomend it.
