My teenage son is developing a liking for this little game that his "old man" plays.
He's been flying off-line a fair bit and getting his butt handed to him on a silver platter more times than not. (reminds me of myself six years ago!)

Anyway, last night he asked me for a web site he can go to that has a good tutorial on offensive / defensive combat flight manuvers.

Any suggestions.

I told him that I'd teach him some moves, but he wants to do it on his own.
(I think his game plan is to eventually get me on-line and whoop my butt! But he doesn't want me saying, "Hey kid, I taught you everything you know!"....LOL)

Teach him everything (and I mean EVERYTHING) you know. Having someone right there with him, showing him stuff and talking him through it will bring him up to snuff much faster than just reading about it. Convince him of this.

If it is not you, have him join a squad that has good teachers.

I'm an avid reader and website junkie, but the few times I've had the privilege of being guided by a true ace, I really felt like my ability increased tenfold over reading about it.

YMMV.

Hit the Essentials link in my sig.... Tailslide's,Tailspin's,Sim HQ,Airwarfare.com,IL2 Flying are all great sites for tactics. There are others as well.

Hey Graham I think it is so cool that you and your son can enjoy this together. My son is 8 and we fly over the home net. He is still in arcade mode (Full icons, easy settings, unlimitted ammo etc) but thats OK. He is learning a bit of history, physics,aerodynamics,mechanics and navigation.. and having a great time with me to boot. I am going to get him a new mobo.. as right now his PC is a K7 (850MHZ..) and his sister (15) is getting tired of us commandeering her PC (My old 2500 Barton) so that he can fly so I am going to get him an inexpensive CPU/MOBO combo and put in my old 9800 Pro and some extta RAM I have to give him a better rig.

God willing when both of our sons get in their 40s and 50s and they have kids of their own and maybe even later after we are long gone.. they will look back on these days and we will get that nudge up in heaven.

IL2 Flying.com (http://www.il2flying.com) is a good site for combat tactics.

For some IL2-specific skills go here: http://www.darts-page.com/ and check out some of his training videos. They're entertaining and informative.
