Falcon Events - Flight School


The Falcon School should not start until 2022/2023.
Now, surprisingly, the tide is turning repeatedly and we can announce the good news that we will be working on it this year after all.

We cordially invite you to become part of the IP roster of the “Falcon Events Flight School”. We are looking for enthusiastic and experienced pilots who would like to pass on their knowledge.
The first IP Meeting takes place May 15th 2021, 1800z. Take your seat HERE

In this appointment we would like to discuss with you in order to collect initial ideas and suggestions on how we can best implement what we want to achieve.
A rough plan will be forged from the suggestions collected during this meeting, which is to be refined bit by bit until we have a good concept at the end of the year.

It is particularly important to us that we include you as a potential instructor in the planning process as early as possible!

Also it is important to say at this point that please only pilots join the IP registration who are aware of the time obligation (around once a week). We aim for experienced people, who fit to our group and like to impart knowledge and been able to pass on the knowledge you have learned.

The “FE Flight School” is neither a squadron nor “Falcon Events” itself, but rather an open, international meeting place for ALL virtual pilots. If you as a potential instructor are already part of a squadron, all the better. Everyone can and should fly how and where they want.

Of course, we also have a few requirements for you:
Every prospective IP will go through a “Checkride” to ensure that the professional skills and the ability to impart knowledge are sufficiently available. You will receive details on this as well as sufficient preparation time promptly.

We look forward to you!

Thanks to Pattex for his effort to make this project happen and thanks to Bloodhound for the great patch!

FALCON BMS - AS REAL AS IT GETS - NEW SOUNDTRACK


I worked on this soundtrack from April 2020 - April 2021.
This is my gift to the Falcon BMS community and I hope you enjoy what you hear.

This soundtrack contains a lot of musical styles from Pop to Electronic to Metal.
On some songs I tried to keep the flavour of the original Falcon 4.0 score.

All of these songs are free to use for any cool Falcon BMS content you wanna produce in the future.

Mission - CHAINSAW, Trainings APRIL - JULY '21
Mission - CHAINSAW

At March 19th 1900z the second try for the mission "Chainsaw" provided by Bloodhound takes place.
Some seats are left HERE

MARCH 2021 = "AGAT" month

Flying LOW level without communication in bad weather conditions without datalink?
STAY VISUAL AND IN FORMATION all the time?
Do low level tacturns without communication?
Arrive your target in a timeframe +-10s as fragged with high SAM threats in the theater?

Even if this sounds weird in 2021, it was real life standard back in the 90's for the RAF crews in Desert Storm.
We will provide some more trainings in different stages to show you one of the hardest and most fun things you can do in BMS.
Dates for Stage 2 and Stage 3 are already posted (Stage 1 was in February). If you need a fam-ride (Stage 1), write us a mail and post a "Training Request" in the ATO.

APRIL - MAY 2021 = "CAS/FAC(A)" + "Low Level Loft" months

CAS/FAC(A):

Cause some of you asked we will provide again our very popular CAS training again.
This training was designed with the help of our friend David who is an real life german JTAC.
If you don't have an idea what CAS is watch our webinar HERE

This training is beginners as well as more advanced guys.
Take a flight in package 1 if you're a beginner or package 2 if you're more advanced HERE

For all beginners please read though the newly designed BRIEFING

We start the beginner training 30-45 min ground school.
The advanced guys can begin instant after a short briefing with your FAC(A).

Cause CAS is quiet time consuming plan about 3-4 hours for this ;-)

Also we will maybe provide FAC(A) training for more advanced CAS pilots if we see some potential...

LOW LEVEL LOFT

This training is about a technique to deliver guided/unguided munition to a pre-planned target low level.
The technique is quite helpful when working in terrains with masking possibilities under high SAM coverage.

Check the ATO for upcoming events.

JUNE - JULY 2021 = "SEAD" + "BVR | WVR" months

SEAD:

Our SEAD training cource which started in december 2020 (but was interrupted due to the release of 4.35) will come back.
Cause in 4.35 SAM's are now even more serious we have to rework all documention to provide you maximum training results.

This training series includes 4 different stages:
Stage 1. Low threat SAM’s (HARM’s)
Stage 2. Low threat SAM’s (MAVERICK’s)
Stage 3. Low threat SAM’s (CBU’s)
Stage 4. High threat SAM’s (GBU, LGB, Various loadout’s)

BVR | WVR - Air to Air

A lot of vPilots are not in love with this topic because it creates the biggest level of adrenaline and stress from all mission types we can do.

It's not for everybody. For sure. BUT you can learn how to handle a "Typical" BVR engament vs. AI as well as flying against humans in a 1v1 or 2v1WVR enviroment.
If you understand how it works it is really fun. But again: "Practice makes permanent". So no shortcuts here.

We provide training from top notch guys who are specialist in this so keep an eye on the ATO for dates.

All the best!

FALCON SCHOOL AND FUTURE OF FALCON EVENTS

Sometimes things go differently than planned...

Last week I was asked to work on a big project in terms of sounddesign.
Because of that I cannot start Falcon School this year. It's not possible timewise.
So I have so skip for now this which is a pain. But real life comes first.

That beeing said, Falcon Events will proceed. That means I will post missions/trainings as often as I can.
Also you guys can do the same. So far the ATO is not beeing used as I thought it would be. Don't be shy! If you have some mission/training in your pocket or just wanna fly and find others, use it. Do it! Come on :-)

All the best!
