First, thank you for your message. It's always a pleasure to be congratuled.
Yesterday was the first flight of our new 2010 serie so it's just the beginning. That's why you could see we were not working on precise track according to the public zone but only working items one by one, i would rather say , discovering them one by one.
Now for your query :
maybe you didn't read this topic
done ? ok...
Pilots with at least "BC test level 2"
we usually don't fly the BC test with the pilot because after a few flights with him we are able to know if he has the required skill. But if you want, we can fly it so you know what to train.- and not part of another VAT (combat squad pilots are ok)
of course! even if a "guest" is normally not allowed to fly on private
BC session (especially for a flight program session) , a guest is quite
part of the BC team and will fly more with us than any other pilot.
Here is how it generally works:
1/A formation is started, with a leader who will decides who he wants and where.
2/ As written in Aerobats rules, people who wants to join this formation will ask to leader if they can come and where.
3/ I don't know with other leaders, but when I
do take the lead, all the pilot in MY wing will have to be on the same TS channel as me: no typing order, and no risk of crash because someone is not able to hear the orders !
(some channels in Aerobats TS are dedicated for planned formation to have only the pilots of this formation in the same channel, pilots not part of this flight will have to stay out or come muted)
4/ 2 main way to fly now:
a) if there are some BC and some BCg in the formation AND we want to train
all of them. So in this case, we will go in a private
channel to be quiet and private; BCg pilot will be TRAINED and not only lead !
b) it's a "cool" flight, with any type of pilot (other VAT, other pilot ...) .
So, just like before, all pilots of the formation are in the same channel, but in this case, it will only be orders from the leader. No tips, no instruction.
Got it ?
have a nice day !
