Two things to do:

1) Reading: http://www.simhq.com/_air/acc_library.html

2) Practice

Aside from that, there isn't much to it. Actually thats alot.

I've been flying this game for a few years now...I'm decently good at ACM but the real trick is internalizing it. I don't think about ACM so much as I understand it and react accordingly. Somedays, when I'm pretty tired from all the work I've been doing, and I go online in one of the easier servers and I just stop thinking, barely even focusing on the screen...shoot someone down and then realize that I had employed a number of relatively complicated manuvers without even thinking. Its really bizzare...I'm sure its like those times when you're driving the car but you really don't remember much of driving from point A to point B.

Anyways off topic.

Work at it, think about your speed as energy or your altitude as energy. Apply that to everything you do...play the game where you fight to keep your energy (your alt or your speed) and force your opponent to loose his.
