A 12 Mission Campaign that covers Basic Flight Training Qualification in the A-10A Warthog.
The A-10A Pilot Qualification Course has the following phases:
Phase 1: Academic Classes and Pre-Flight Training
Phase 2: Basic Flight Training Qualification
Phase 3: Advanced Aircraft Training Fighter / Bomber Track Qualification
Phase 4: Tactical Training Qualification
Hopefully you have completed Phase 1 and are familiar with the A-10A aircraft systems and instruments. If not, please read the DCS A-10A Flight Manual before continuing.
The goal of the A-10A Pilot Qualification Course is to prepare Cadets for combat operations flying the A-10A in a number of mission roles. Commanders require pilots with the skills and training necessary to be successful on the battlefield.
Each Phase of training will contain individual Performance Objectives (POs) that must be met to pass the course. Performance Checks (PCs) will be used to determine if you have met the requirements of the PO.
Following each flight (known as a Check Ride) your Flight Examiner (FE) will rate you using one of the following proficiency levels as directed in A/OA-10 – Aircrew Evaluation Criteria: AFI11-2A-OA-10V2:
Qualified (Q): Performance is correct. Quickly recognizes and corrects errors.
Qualified Minus (Q-): Performance is safe, but indicates limited proficiency. Makes errors of omission or commission.
Unqualified (U): Performance is unsafe or indicates lack of knowledge or ability.
In addition for any flight missions:
Qualified (Q): Altitude +/- 200 feet, Airspeed +/- 5%, Course +/- 5 degrees / 3 NM (whichever is greater)
Qualified Minus (Q-): Altitude +/- 300 feet, Airspeed +/- 10%, Course +/- 10 degrees / 5 NM (whichever is greater)
Unqualified (U): Exceeded Q- limits
