A-10C Basic Flight Training Qualification Campaign Now Available on STEAM!


The A-10C Basic Flight Training Qualification campaign puts you in the cockpit of an A-10C Warthog, and tests your ability to fly the aircraft successfully. 


Based on real world qualification requirements you will fly 12 performance check rides to execute against pre-defined performance objectives. If successful, you will rate a Qualified rating and proceed to the next performance objective. 

You will be rated on the following areas and these results will form your final rating: 
 
General knowledge, airmanship and safety. 
Pre-takeoff, and takeoff. 
 Navigation and maneuvers. 
Approach, landing and after landing. 
Communications and task prioritization. 

The campaign covers a number of key areas including Start-Up and Shutdown, Takeoffs and Landings, Traffic Patterns, Basic, Advanced and Aerobatic Maneuvers, Emergencies, Formation Flying and Instrument Flight Plan Navigation. 

There are over 2300 voiceovers and over 170 pages of briefing material including the A-10C Amplified Checklist, Maps, Diagrams, and Mission Data cards.

A-10C Advanced Aircraft Training Qualification Campaign Released on the ED Store

We are pleased to announce that ED have released our updated A-10C Advanced Aircraft Training Qualification Campaign.
 
 
 
We updated all the voice overs in the campaign with professional recordings. 
The professional voice overs really make a difference in our opinion.

The MFM Rebate Program will continue for this campaign as well so if you had purchased it from the MFM website we will rebate your original purchase price on proof of purchase of the ED Store version.

We have many more campaigns in the pipeline and will share information about them when we can.

Happy flying!

F-5E vs MiG-21 Grudge Match!

Hi Everyone,
 
Just wanted to point you at a Forum Thread that my good friend Hook from the BlackKnights and Stingers has created.
 
 
 
They just finished the 2nd event and a 3rd is planned.  
 
Hook did the play by play and did a damn fine job of it in our opinion.  If you get a chance it's well worth watching the twitch feed video here.
 
We decided to co-sponsor the event as we are developing the F-5E Campaign and have offered the winning team a free t-shirt from our cafepress site.
 
We have added both the MiG-21 and F-5E images to our product line and updated the graphics and titles for all the images.
 

    
Congrats to the winning team (Team Tiger) and to all pilots and everyone who participated to make an outstanding event.   
 
We look forward to more of Ramsey's Grudge Match Series as they are extremely entertaining.  I'm sure you will enjoy watching them too.
 
Good Hunting!

July Update!

We have had a very busy time since our last blog post.

What have we been doing?

1. We updated all the voice overs in the A-10C Advanced Aircraft Training Qualification Campaign (AAT) with professional recordings.  The missions were all retested and the package has been given to ED for their review and release.  We can't say exactly when it will be available in the ED store but we believe the voice overs take the campaign to the next level.  Many thanks to Grayson Frohberg for doing a great job!

2. We are doing the same thing for the A-10C Tactical Training Qualification Campaign and we hope to update the already released A-10C Basic Flight Training Qualification Campaign at some future point as well.  The professional voice overs really make a difference in our opinion.

3. You probably noticed in the DCS Newsletter today the following line:

"Extended Campaign for the F-5E by Maple Flags Missions Developer (not included in the module package)".  

We were contacted in May to do a campaign for the F-5E.  It has been in development ever since.  It is an NTTR based campaign and very much in keeping with the teaser video (see below). Release date is TBD and everything is subject to change.





4. Lastly we recently updated to the Oculus Rift and what an experience that has been.  If you have not had a chance to try it out, it really is a game changer.  The sense of immersion is remarkable and though the graphics resolution is not on par with 4K TVs you lose yourself in the immersion so quickly it's a very easy trade-off.

Lots of good stuff coming to DCS and we have lots of campaigns in development.  We look forward to the 2.5 release when the Alpha and Beta's combine into a single instance.

Happy flying!
