egory (Basic, Advanced or Extreme): Basic Fighter Maneuvers
What’s Happening? This scene starts with aircraft flying in side-by-side tactical formation just prior to the formation lead calling “check away” to setup for the neutral high-aspect engagement. When formation is subsequently directed to “turn in” the aircraft point head-on to each other closing at over 400 mph! When the two aircraft meet at the merge, the formation lead calls “fight’s on” to start the engagement. Watch and listen as BJ coaches Mud Ball through this high-energy fun-filled
dogfight against Mud Ball’s brother-in-law, Blondie. Don’t let the results of this engagement fool you, in the next engagement (not included here), Blondie sets a Fighter Combat International record of 12.95 seconds from merge to guns kill. Come watch Mud Ball’s video and enjoy some air combat tips – we’d love to hear your comments. What to listen for in the audio commentary: lift vector control, energy management and various tips on conversion and transfer of energy between potential and kinetic reservoirs – concluding with the logical management of both energy and geometry to achieve positional advantage and employment of a lethal gun shot … enjoy!
Important Note: Without exception, all mission profiles are “challenge by choice” at Fighter Combat International. We will not put anyone through any maneuver without their expressed permission and expressed desire to do so. Each mission profile follows a building block approach from basic maneuvers working towards the client’s self-determined limitations. The customer chooses, at each stage of the building block process, whether to keep it basic and gentle or to move progressively towards the extreme.
