A-10A Flight Training Qualification
Quick Link Reference:
We have a blog: http://mapleflagmissions.blogspot.ca/

=== Basic Flight Training Qualification ===
Similar to our successful A-10C Basic Flight Training Qualification Campaign we have released a version for the A-10A.

This campaign has many improvements including updated graphics, additional voice overs and improved feedback results. Many of the enhancements are being propagated back to the A-10C campaign and we hope to release the updated version soon.

Basic Flight Training Qualification - 12 mission Campaign covering qualifications for Basic Aircraft Qualification (BAQ).
OpenBeta Version Updated for DCS World 1.5: Basic Flight Training Qualification - 12 mission Campaign covering qualifications for Basic Aircraft Qualification (BAQ).
Basic Flight Training Qualification Documentation - Provides Mission Data Cards, Maps and Diagrams for all 12 missions of the campaign.
Basic Flight Training Qualification Documentation 2 - Provides User Bars, Badges and Certificates for the Campaign.

The A-10A Pilot Qualification Course has the following phases

Phase 1: Academic Classes and Pre-Flight Training
Phase 2: Basic Flight Training Qualification
Phase 3: Advanced Aircraft Training Qualification
Phase 4: Tactical Training Qualification

Phase 1 gives you Initial Qualification Training (IQT) and is a pre-requisite for Phase 2. Hopefully you have completed Phase 1 and are familiar with the A-10A aircraft systems and instruments. If not, please read the A-10A Flight Manual before continuing.

Phase 2 gives you Basic Aircraft Qualification (BAQ).
It is a pre-requisite for Phase 3. It is recommended that you complete this phase before proceeding to Phase 3.

Phase 3 makes you Basic Mission Capable (BMC). It is a pre-requisite for Phase 4.

Phase 4 makes you Combat Mission Ready (CMR). This is necessary before proceeding on any real combat missions.

Phase 2 - Basic Flight Training Qualification contains:

Contact Stage (VFR):
1. Perform Ground Handling
2. Perform Take-Off and EFATO
3. Fly Traffic Pattern
4. Perform Approach and Landing
5. Perform Basic Maneuvers
6. Perform Advanced Handling
7. Perform Aerobatics
8. Respond to Emergencies

Instrument / Navigation Stage (IFR):
9. Instrument Approach (Landing)
10. Instrument Flight Plan Navigation

Formation Stage:
11. Fly 2 Ship as Wingman

Low-Level Stage
12. Fly Low-Level Flight Plan

This is a payware campaign that requires the purchase of a mission key to install.

More details can be found at our website here.

We hope you enjoy it and please provide any question, issues or other feedback to this thread.

Does this actually train you? Or does it assume you already know how to fly the A-10A?

Sabre-TLA 01-13-2015 06:13 PM

It's a Qualification Campaign so it does test you but you will learn as well in trying to pass the tests.

Love your guys work! But will say why the FC3 aircraft when the real modules aren't done like the ka50?

Sabre-TLA 01-14-2015 02:52 AM

No reason other than we release the campaigns when they are ready. I expect the next one will be the F-15C but everything is subject to change.

We did refactor all the code and have set it up so that the missions will be easier to update when the SSM (Standard System Model) becomes ASM (Advanced System Model) for those modules.

Great to see progress. The A10C campaign was great, I assume there are only minor differences between the A10C and A10A campaigns. Looking forward to the next one...

Yes the format of the missions is essentially the same.

We had to remove some of the cockpit clickable triggers as the FC3 aircraft don't have those (yet). However the new design makes it easy to add those in when those aircraft eventually do get the Advanced System Model (ASM).

We did fix a number of items that users had complained about and added some additional voice dialogue to help with the mission flow.

One part that I like is that we broke out the feedback so instead of just getting a Qual, Qual-Minus or UnQual rating at the end, we now provide feedback specifically on the following based on your in mission performance:

1. General knowledge, airmanship and safety.
2. Pre-takeoff, and takeoff.
3. Navigation and maneuvers.
4. Approach, landing and after landing.
5. Communications and task prioritization.

Your final rating is determined based on how well you do in each of the 5 areas.

We have propagated these changes to the A-10C campaign and hope to release it soon.

Likewise all the aircraft will benefit from roughly the same model and bug fixes can be propagated as the code base is now consistent.

Download Package has been updated.

We made some minor zone improvements (making them bigger so they are easier to hit) and adjusted the end mission music so it doesn't overlap with the voice dialogue (the DCS World 1.2.15 update changed the way sounds are processed).

We also updated the installer to support those users who don't have Flaming Cliffs but only purchased the A-10A module.

A user with Military Pilot experience gave us some feedback about our Basic Flight Training Qualification Campaign.

He pointed out that our Lazy Eight maneuver in BFT06 - Advanced Handling was actually more of a Cuban Eight or Figure Eight than a true Lazy Eight.

We agreed and have updated the campaign mission file and diagrams to reflect the true Lazy Eight maneuver.

Files have been updated on ED's User Files Section.

Hopefully this makes the Lazy Eight maneuver more accurate and easier for players to successfully complete.

A10ABFT01, please change it so that big car in the north doesn't drive straight through you.
BFT03 is moderately broken (1.1), has it been changed in 1.2?
1. Can't hear check at beginning, but answer it.
2. Only 1 waypoint, cannot change to any other waypoint.
3. He says turn to 40/300 and when I do I'm unqualified. Note I'm basically flying over the city, not very well aligned with runway.

All times are GMT. The time now is 03:50 PM.
