Welcome to the SCG Training Resource. As of March 2019 this part of the forum is a work in progress that will hopefully build up to be a comprehensive and trusted resource for individual and group training. A new SCG Air Manual has now been added and soon this will be complemented by individual lesson plans that will build month on month and cover the fundementals of SCG Group Flying.
Also added are links to Requiem's Air Combat Video Library, HvBs excellent Ground Attacker Handbook and Johan Kylander's indispensable "In Pursuit" for those of you who want to some deeper learning. In the meantime Clear Skies. BOO
10th March 2018. The new SCG AIR GENERAL MANUAL is completed and available below. We encourage EVERYONE to read through it in order to bring themselves up to speed and refresh their memories.
The Placeholders for the Formation and ACM lessons are also complete. If you click "expand" on these sections you will see how the lessons are set out. Each lesson will eventually have its own pdf file with links to resources such a Requiem's Air Combat Tutorials, extracts from In Pursuit by J Kylander and lesson plans to enable quick on the fly training to take place on routine missions. These lessons will be built over the coming weeks and months. When complete, news of them will be posted here.
The New SCG Air Manual is now complete and available by clicking below. Its designed as a quick quide for new members and old and we urge EVERYONE to read and understand its contents! Over the coming weeks and months the training modules will be updated to complement this. Click on the image to view and download.
Over the next few weeks and months you will see the sections opposite build into a comprehensive set of lesson plans that you can use in your flying routine. It is broken into 2 main sections relating to Formation Disciplines and Group Air Combat. To supplement the core elements Joham Kylander's excellent "In Pursuit" is also available alongside HvB's authoratative Ground Attack guide.
Some things just dont need to be replicated and the lessons and advice in REQUIEM'S Air Combat Tutorials are up there with them.
Here you will find an ever expanding resource of straight to the point tutorials on all the IL2 Great Battles aircraft alongside lessons on ground attacking, individual combat manouvers, gunnery and dealing with emergencies.
These video lessons are ideal jumping off points to familiarise yourself with new types and for getting a great grounding in basic combat and formation flying.
5th March 2019. Core compentencies are Kaput! From now on there will only be one "Chit" which will be for our DEAD IS DEAD flyers. Existing participants will have this added automatically once I've made it and this will enable thme to sig up for DIDs in the future.
For those who do not currently fly DID but want to, all you need to do is arrange to fly in 2 casual events along with a Staffelkapitan or Stab member and ask them to rate your performance. If they deem your skills up to a standard they are happy with then you'll get the chit and off you go. If not you'll be told what you need to work on.
