Category:Basic Fighter Maneuvers
Air combat maneuvering is really a combination of a few basic flight maneuvers. By combining these basic maneuvers, you (hopefully) put yourself in a position to shoot at an enemy or prevent an enemy from shooting at you. Once you are able to perform the basic maneuvers separately, try combining them. A double immelman can be a very effective merge. A partial aileron roll is the first part of any turn. A flat turn is nothing more than a 1/4 aileron roll and then a horizontal loop! The list goes on and on.
