7. Enter the minimum distance into gunsight [.]

but for rockets firing in L-39ZA is stated in page 257:

4. Set the fictitious target base
5. Set the GYRO – FIXED switch to FIXED [LShift+J]
6. Enter the minimum range into the sight [.]
...

Do we have to start with FIXED or GYRO? Is it different for L-39C and L-39ZA?

Thanks.
It's a mistake, I'll fix it. It should be so for both aircraft: Set the GYRO-FIXED switch to the GYRO position [LShift+J]

I just got this beauty during this sale. Yesterday I read the section with the "Circle Pattern Flight". Shouldn't this be named circuit pattern flight? You really don't fly a circle in that particular pattern. It also has some other weird words and errors in it.

Some examples:
Quote:
It used for practicing takeoff, turns, landing approaches and landing, as well as for visual
landing approach on airfields without instrument landing system installed. Circle pattern
altitude for standard landing approach is 600 meters. When landing on unknown airfield,
pilot performs approach and landing using basic parameters.

Quote:
Underfly is fixed by pulling, for that RPM should be increased so that airplane maintains speed and
descends towards flaring point with constant pitch angle.
Small overfly is fixed by reducing engine RPM. If approach is performed with overfly which cannot be
fixed by RPM reduction, perform missed approach procedure.
"Underfly", "Overfly"? Are those real words? I think a steep or shallow glide path is the key word here. These little things might confuse new pilots.
I am not a native speaker so i might be wrong. I never had any trouble to understand the A10 or F5 manual.
