So, I wanted to plug this guy I recently discovered (and know nothing else about) because I think he deserves a lot more views than he gets. He is a Simulator tech for the USAF and explains some concepts and procedures with a great balance of real life accuracy and DCS brevity. Not as flashy as some other youtubers but very clear and educational, with clear pictures and examples.
We had a lot of Navy procedures explained in the las Hornet years (including that series on carrier ops by a former Hornet pilot that was exceptional) but not many air force stuff for aspiring Viper pilots, especially people trying to fly more inside realistic parameters.
His breakdown of bombing trig was great too. I’ve always done similar patterns for consistency’s sake, but in lieu of doing the whole base/altitude/AOP stuff I always used a mental image to place me in the ballpark. I’ll have to try the numbers with reference points on the map now.
