I am going to take the Cat for a cruise around the Persian Gulf, then send a thank you email to Heatblur and ED for such a great opportunity for non military to enjoy the fruits of their labor.

Continue playing the other modules until it's had a couple of patches to fix the inevitable bugs

Lonely?

You can be my wingman, any time.

For me - as with any new DCS module, I just like to do some touch-n-goes, usually at Nellis (or wherever the mission designer puts the standard "take off" or "landing" mission). That allows me to assign my axes and buttons, and also get a feel for the aircraft.

Probably just follow the standard conversion course progression when learning a new aircraft.
Learn the tech and systems/ground school and map my controls, then start with basic TO/LDG/handling and circuits, then navigation/A-A refuel etc, then boat qual, then BCM/ACM and weapons deployment.

All of that after I just load it up and sit in that amazing cockpit in VR and take it all in, then firewall the throttles and just blast around at Mach 2 buzzing every tower I can see..
