Tactics are based on the relative performance of your plane compaired to the bandits so you must have a good understanding of the general caracteristics of both- but especially concentrate on flying to your planes strengths.
Concentrate on one or two favourites to start with to get used to their handling.

Here are some links to combat guides on the web
