Your best bet if you are playing against others online is making it up as you go along.
Every maneuver has a counter maneuver, so if you perform a precise tactic, people can find a way to counter it. Alot of very experienced WW2 fighter pilots (apparently) became their own worst enemy by being too precise with their aerial combat.
Just remember that whilst in a dogfight, forward speed and altitude advantage are very important factors and try to keep engagements short so you dont get dragged into long drawn out death circles.
