Default F-15C Flight Qualification Campaign

Quick Link Reference:
We have a blog: http://mapleflagmissions.blogspot.ca/

=== Basic Flight Training Qualification ===
Similar to our successful A-10A and A-10C Basic Flight Training Qualification Campaigns we have released a version for the F-15C.

This campaign has many improvements including updated graphics, additional voice overs and improved feedback results. Many of the enhancements are being propagated back to the A-10C campaign and we hope to release the updated version soon.

Basic Flight Training Qualification - 12 mission Campaign covering qualifications for Basic Aircraft Qualification (BAQ).
Basic Flight Training Qualification Practice Missions - 13 single player missions to help prepare for the Basic Aircraft Qualification (BAQ) campaign.

OpenBeta Version for DCS World 1.5: Basic Flight Training Qualification - 12 mission Campaign covering qualifications for Basic Aircraft Qualification (BAQ).

Basic Flight Training Qualification Documentation - Provides Mission Data Cards, Maps and Diagrams for all 12 missions of the campaign.
Basic Flight Training Qualification Documentation 2 - Provides User Bars, Badges and Certificates for the Campaign.

The F-15C Pilot Qualification Course has the following phases

Phase 1: Academic Classes and Pre-Flight Training
Phase 2: Basic Flight Training Qualification
Phase 3: Advanced Aircraft Training Qualification
Phase 4: Tactical Training Qualification

Phase 1 gives you Initial Qualification Training (IQT) and is a pre-requisite for Phase 2. Hopefully you have completed Phase 1 and are familiar with the F-15C aircraft systems and instruments. If not, please read the F-15C Flight Manual before continuing.

Phase 2 gives you Basic Aircraft Qualification (BAQ).
It is a pre-requisite for Phase 3. It is recommended that you complete this phase before proceeding to Phase 3.

Phase 3 makes you Basic Mission Capable (BMC). It is a pre-requisite for Phase 4.

Phase 4 makes you Combat Mission Ready (CMR). This is necessary before proceeding on any real combat missions.

Phase 2 - Basic Flight Training Qualification contains:

Contact Stage (VFR):
1. Perform Ground Handling
2. Perform Take-Off and EFATO
3. Fly Traffic Pattern
4. Perform Approach and Landing
5. Perform Basic Maneuvers
6. Perform Advanced Handling
7. Perform Aerobatics
8. Respond to Emergencies

Instrument / Navigation Stage (IFR):
9. Instrument Approach (Landing)
10. Instrument Flight Plan Navigation

Formation Stage:
11. Fly 2 Ship as Wingman

Low-Level Stage
12. Fly Low-Level Flight Plan

This is a payware campaign that requires the purchase of a mission key to install.

More details can be found at our website here.

We hope you enjoy it and please provide any question, issues or other feedback to this thread.

Thanks.

OCE Classified" stands for "Operation Chosen Eagle Classified"?

i think airway flightlevels should be coordinated with international VFR Cruising Flight levels.
For example TC Tango with 260° heading are forced to fly at FL130-FL140.
According to international rules a flight in VFR-Mode with heading 80° (opposite of 260°!) could choose FL135 for his cruising and is therefor on collision course with Airway "TC Tango".

Good point.

You should assume that because this is a military operation that commercial flights would be restricted from flying in the Military Operations Area and be diverted around it.

I won't deny that if ED decides to put commercial traffic into the game engine at some future point that they won't get the memo and collisions could occur.

Best to keep your head out of the cockpit most of the time.

Thanks Lino, looks like a last minute location change didn't get checked. I'll fix that and post an update.

I think there is another issue in the same mission: The trigger that should start the engine failure seems to be inoperative. I flew with heading 060 nearly out of the scenario-map and nothing happens.

Sorry it's a simulated engine failure (yes in a simulation) so you need to manually shut it down.

The FE says:
"Your EFATO test starts now.

Shutdown your right engine and make a controlled landing back at Batumi.

The Hard Deck Restriction is terminated."

Since it's only the 2nd mission we felt the user should be in control of the engine. Later in BFT08 - Emergencies you will get to deal with a real (simulated) engine problem.

I´ve tried the mission several times. Now I´ve initiated the trigger, and yes, now I know that it is a "simulated" engine failure.

Obviously it is important to fly a tight curve from heading 300 to 060, otherwise it is possible that somebody misses the trigger.
