Air training instructors

Post by Micke II »

A question about the rules:
What is exactly the role and influence of a air instructor ?
When a pilot reachs a experience level he can be withdraw from an air squadron to become an instructor.
What is the benefit to withdraw a skill pilot and to put him in the training pool of pilots ?

Sorry, off topic, but I still like #3. Hope these gals live on one of those larger/expandable ports.[:D]

Kinda like the old Cheech & Chong routine.

Kamikaze instructor: you crash your airprane into yankee dog battleship and die in braze of glory for Emp. Hirohito!!!! Any questions?

Potential kamikaze pilot: you must be outta you f***ing mind! [:D] [;)]

The Elf who is Air Team Lead said in other thread:

tm.asp?m=2168708

Sending pilots to the training command does several things

1. It takes skilled pilots off the front lines and makes room for a less EXP'd pilot to either gain combat EXP or be killed.

2. Pilots in the training command increase the rate and quality of new pilots

3. The Quality increase reaches a point of diminishing returns if Pilots are coming out at their national average, but point 1 above and the rate at which they train is still being affected.


And there was this too:

This is from the manual (p.260, top of page)

"Some groups can be defined as “Training Groups”. Not to be confused with groups on a mission
of Training. These Training Groups can be loaded up with pilots from the last few months of
the training roster, and be assigned training missions like any other group. But they cannot fly
combat missions. Once the pilots have gained a certain level of skills, they can be released
back into the Reserve Pilot pool. Instructors can be pulled into the group to increase training."


RTFM! [:D]

After you have pulled instructors, can you put them back into active service after a delay?

Yes, after they serve their time on training duty they return to the RESERVE force and are able to return to operational units.

The last answers bring more clarity to the training system but not completely, so I add more questions to fully understand how the system works:

1/ is it possible to have an idea about the duration of the training duty for the instructors ?
several months ?
one year ?
more ?

2/ Is it possible to quantify the benefit of these instructors for the pilots in the training groups ? More % for their experience. Less % of time to reach a certain level of experience ?

3/ are the training groups specialised ?
Are they bombing training groups, torpedo bombing groups, dive bombing groups ?

4/ Are the instructors also specialised by category of planes ?

Good questions!

Beat me to the first one. But still have others, or just to clarify in my mind (as it is[:'(])

The pilots after training, do not go back to their units, right?
Is there any way to get them back to the same group?
Is there still a cap to the number of missions before they are withdrawn as in Witp?
