The Fighter Pilot Podcast

With the DCS Hornet coming out soon (end of spring hopefully) we think many will appreciate this reference.

The author is an ex navy fighter pilot and he talks about his experiences flying the F/A-18 and other fighter pilot topics.

It's well worth listening too.

Happy Flying!

Virtual Naval Air Operations

Just wanted to give a shout out to one of our squadmates MAX who is restarting the Virtual Naval Air Operations squads for DCS Multiplayer.

You can read more about it in this forum post!

Max is a great guy and was instrumental in running VNAO many years ago.  

Now with DCS planning to release the F/A-18C Hornet and an F-14A/B (A+) Tomcat plus new maps the future looks very good for virtual Naval Operations in DCS.

If you are looking for a multiplayer squad to join you won't do better than the VNAO!

DCS World 2.5 OpenBeta Released - Changed A-10C BFT Campaign Structure


With the release of 2.5 we took the opportunity to update the BFT Campaign structure to match the other campaigns we have in the series.

A-10C Basic Flight Training Campaign

Only the Qualification missions are in the Campaign now. The practice missions are no longer part of the campaign order (but are still included in the campaign package).

To play the practice missions you can open them in the Mission Editor and using the file browser select the path where the campaign is stored:

<your drive letter>:\Program Files\Eagle Dynamics\DCS World OpenBeta\Mods\campaigns\A-10C - Basic Flight Training Qualification

This is based on user feedback that indicated the majority preferred the campaign to just contain the qualification missions.

We recommend you restart the campaign (to see the new beautiful Caucasus map) but if you want to maintain your current status you can manually update your logbook using the instructions in this forum post.

If you have any questions or problems please email us at mapleflagmissions@gmail.com and we will be happy to assist.
