Yes, tough depending on the aircraft ... for example on the MiG-19 there are no random failures

Sometimes, it really depends on the aircraft and how familiar I'm with it's emergency procedures.

yes, though nothing usually seems to work, don't know if it happens in multiplayer, looks like someone said it doesn't

I never have...I barely have enough time to fly and learn all the systems and procedures as is without having to worry about failures.

No — even if I wanted to, they're not available in MP or missions designed for it (even if run in SP).

If I could set random failures in multiplayer missions, I absolutely would every time. I like the idea of using the failures as a incentive to do the proper checks and learn the emergency procedures.

Yes, always, however it rarely actually comes up (as it should be). Just gives you an incentive to actually glance over your instruments and run some tests. Which you should do anyway because you never know when your stick will stop working.

I don't use the random failures simply because although they are random, they happen every single mission you fly
