I'm trying to learn to play better with the air units. My idea is not to have airplanes distributed on the 4-6 air bases, but to distribute them together maybe on 2 air bases, in order to save flight miles (see stagging bases). Is it a bad idea in general? So you have empty airbases that you can maybe bring closer to the front? I still feel very insecure about all of this :)

You might want to read the air guide I tried to put together here for an overview and tips: https://www.matrixgames.com/forums/tm.asp?m=4782755

The rule of thumb is avoid moving airbases that have air groups in them. Instead try to empty 1-2 airbases then move them forward then transfer air units to them (aka kabuki dance). You can also send some air groups to national reserve if they have low morale, high fatigue, or high damage. This is the best beginner example I found walking through the standard process: https://www.matrixgames.com/forums/tm.asp?m=4360475&mpage=1&key=�

See centralisation in post 953 here as an example http://www.matrixgames.com/forums/fb.asp?m=4611374

Also see post 998 here for @Joelmar;s question of when that is a good idea and the discussion about it afterwards http://www.matrixgames.com/forums/fb.asp?m=4612677
