Default Who has recieved baackseat L-39C Instruction?

Was wondering what your experience was and how effective you thought it was. We use it extensively in my group and it seems to be enjoyable to all who have partaken. It'd be nice to get other opinions to show the masses how useful the bird is.

I'd love to but no-one in our squad flies it.

Yeah, the main issue is it requires folks to purchase a module they might not otherwise own .In our group, I've found that the experienced pilots seem to be the ones drawn to the trainers whereas the folks who could really benefit from them tend to shy away in favor of combat modules.

Very true statement.

I let my wife ride in the back and was very careful not to metion the hood because I knew what would happen. Luckily she didn't notice the control knob for it.

All was well for a while until she figured how to shut off the engine. She ejected soon after and left me plumeting to my doom since I don't know how to restart in mid air and my ejections seat wouldn't fire. DCS can be just like real life sometimes.

The L-39 is a must have module. There is a fairly decent number of people in DCS who understand the basics of aviation; lesser known things to many casual DCS players. (such as traffic patterns, overhead joins, etc) The L-39 allows the experienced simmers to pass this knowledge on to more casual simmers. I have taken three people up in my L-39C as "students" so far, and I was just amazed at what a great learning tool it was for them. One of these said "students" has nearly twice the time I have in the A-10, but didn't know how to fly a traffic pattern. Unfortunately, feefifofum is correct, the people who would be benefited the most by the L-39 tend to shy away towards combat modules. I wish this wasn't true. The casual crowd is here to have fun, but the L-39 offers fun as well as a learning experience for nearly every flight. I don't think the casual crowd really knows this yet.

I own the module and I'd love to get instruction from a fellow pilot in the backseat ! Would be so great, but I don't know anyone who owns the module...

I've just bought the module, I'd be really happy for some instruction in how things work. It would be great if there was a way of purchasing a squadron licence to train up new members, rather than each member having to buy it. I understand the motive behind it, but it would be great if there was a way of doing this with training aircraft for a registered DCS Squadron.
