Definitely. I had a lot of trouble until i sat down and got serious and flew like i meant it (before, i basically just messed around with zero procedure and zero consistency, and as you can imagine my flying suffered severely, i could hardly hold altitude, couldn't stay coordinated ect) You will learn a lot from the flying manual, I have not read the British one, but i read a lot of the Airplane Flying Handbook from the 1980s and it helped my thought processes quite a bit.


And most of all have fun!

near stall steady speed, flaps, rudder.. combine those and stay on course... don't brake on runway or you will die only later.

It sucks to have two wheels in front.. but that's how it was back then.

No. Brake. If you die, then you just suck. Practice. Unless you have one heck of a long runway like on all the maps except Normandy, you will have to put pressure on the brakes to slow before overrunning the runway. And no matter the map or airfield, get off the runway as soon as you can, don't dawdle and dink around; there is or may be traffic behind you.

You are right

Don't have Normandy map, I am not into WW2 (yet!) so I was hugely successful with TP-51 on Caucasus and now PG map.

Hey kolga, Im like that now. Or I was probably, I start to take it more serious now. Before also a lot messing around, no procedures. But its not getting me anywhere. I will put more effort as of now, and also try to learn the right way. ) Guys, I do try to use brakes if I manage to land in one piece, but it needs practise for sure
