    Jester IQT progress

    Please welcome Jester to the IQT course. Yesterday he successfully passed the first flight.
    Jester is experienced sim pilot with good knowledge of the viper and the SOP's.
    We took off from Al minhad AB and practiced some tac turns, got a little sip of fuel from Shell and ended the flight with an overhead break.

    Overall he met all the DLO's of the first flight and we move on to some action with the next flight.

    Last Thursday we flew IQT 2 and Jester did very well to complete the second flight.

    We did three sets of BVR engagements against various migs, while holding a grinder cap between the engagements.
    Although the Viper still lacks B/E information for contacts, Jester managed to handle the comms and the bandits, shooting down all his assigned targets.
    He also managed to shoot down a pair of 29's in TWS mode from about 20nm.

    After we had enough fun for one sortie we got some fuel from Shell in order to get back safely to home plate.

    Good job on IQT 2 Jester, now it's time for some dogfights against the migs.

    Last Saturday Jester completed IQT 3 with flying colours.
    We did a combat departure from Al-Minhad AB and went directly to Shell2 to fill up gas before we head west for WVR engagements.
    Jester did very well in all three engagements, shooting down all bandits while keeping good comm's all the time.
    It was his first IQT in VR and this flight demonstrated how good comm's are essential in those situations as it's very easy to loose sight in VR.
    At the end we refueled again just to have enough fuel to get back home safely.

    Good job on the A/A part of the course now it's time for some A/G basics.

    Ready for T/O

    VR is just another ballgame.

    The flight was awesome, thanks Banko.

    Loooong time, brother since you and I flew together over there. I see they're still with BMS. How do you like the DCS Viper?

    Well done Jester, keep it coming.
    Me was in the 87th too, for some years
