Default What do you do first when the tomcat is available?

I will first look at the cat from the outside, with vr. And then look at the cockpit, and every detail. Just let it all work on you

A - 4G maneuver on top of a Mig-28.

Inverted of course.

Shoot down an AWACs from 100nm+ and giggle maniacally.

First thing I will do is reading through the manual. After that I will jump into a cold start custom training mission as a RIO together with my pilot buddy to put the theory into action.

Definitely map my keys. After that, any initial training scenarios required to get started up and flying, then I'll insert the F-14 into my free flight scenario and just get used to the jet for a while.

Landings ashore & traps on the boat gonna be first for me, then the flight envelope with airwork & aerobatics, including the “Don’ts”...

Free flight mission, probably forget to map axis and buttons, so Pause and do that on the fly and then go burners and have some fun! ...trying to land the Cat and likely succeed at the first try! Then start in earnest learning startup, take off, landing while failing gloriously, realising the first landing was a lucky shot. It's always like that with a new plane.
