Unofficial FAQ & Guides!
I wrote a DCS World Steam Guide to encourage more guides.

It's sort of an unofficial FAQ so far seen on the forums.

Have at it:

Hey. I want to make something like flight school but it takes so much time. (And i have so much hobbies => not enough time) So, be patient. Maybe someone will be faster than me. ;)

I wrote a guide on a 'slightly' more advanced topic: aerial refueling and formation flying.

Obviously aerial refueling is one of the most difficult things to learn and requires a lot of practice. The guide covers the basics and hopefully helps new players avoid errors that make refueling more difficult than it has to be.

Simplest way is to go in the DCS World menu: Create Fast Mission -> Advanced mode:
Here set all opposition and allied aircrafts/assets to "no".
Select Start from runway, set wingman to 0 (or keep him if you don't mind), select the aircraft you want to fly, time, weather and press GENERATE MISSION.

Important: Everytime you change something you have to "generate" the mission again or your changes won't be in when you press fly.

Protip: In the next window you can select "Mission Planner" - your aicraft will be selected by default and on the right you can see its settings/options. Now change the tab from "ROUTE" to "PAYLOAD" and there you can select your weapon/fuel loadout. This is usefull if you plan to die a lot and want to respawn with a specific loadout.
