DCS Black Shark: Basic Flight School at the ECV56 Condor

In a previous post I mentioned that I joined a virtual squadron named ECV56 Condor (Virtual Combat Squadron 56, Condor). This group of folks is headquartered in Argentina and is organized around so called "wings", each wing featuring a particular flight simulator.

The recently founded Black Shark wing is getting ready to test their pilots in basic flight skills. The upcoming exams will see the pilots showing what they have learned. A helicopter startup, a control hover, taxi, running takeoff, pattern flying and landing will be required to approve the basic flight school. The instructors already produced a series of study guides which are really comprehensive and helpful.

I'm looking forward for my exam.
