At @Maico’s excellent One Aircraft a Month thread (check it out if you haven’t), we decided to attempt to collectively tackle the common DCS woes of “too much choice” and “too many hangar queens” by focusing on one aircraft for a month at a time. Highly surprising given the name of the thread, I know.
There is a good amount of interest (which is great) and approximately 11 views for every 10 pilots on how we should do it (which is to be expected). So the best thing to do is just to get on with it and figure it out as we go - after all, no plan survives the contact with the enema (always bring an extra bag).
The conversation regarding our aircraft of choice is ongoing - the formal kickoff is at the start of March so I will use the lead-up to to brush up my stick-and-rudder in the Yak-52 in the meantime and we can use the thread as an opportunity to iron out how we go about the format: briefings, how to make most of the month and the joint effort and so on and soforth.
I’ve only done a few familiarisation flights with the Yak, so I’ll try to do a bit of diary from the start here. I know we have a few more experienced mountain yaks around - so please hop in and share your experience / resources - paging @Victork2 at least!
