Welcome to Basic Flight Maneuvers. Here you will find many Basic Flight Maneuvers Training lessons and descriptions for the aircraft types available on Rise of Flight. These Lessons provide a quick introduction for getting to know your aircraft.
Introduction to Basic Flight Maneuvers These Lessons were made possible by the generous contribution of =IRFC= Requem with transcription by New Wings Staff.

Lesson demonstrating how overcooling damages the engine in Rise of Flight.
Also included are the correct radiator settings for inline engines to prevent overcooling. Performed in a DVIIF. Manfred von Richthofen,a close friend of Anthony Fokker, also took its prototype to a trial flight and noted some of its minor flaws, particularly certain instability in long dive, which was later fixed.
Lesson demonstrating how to extinguish a flamed engine in Rise of Flight.
By extinguishing a flamed engine you prevent yourself from burning to death and the destruction of your aircraft. To extinguish an engine fire you need to begin a high speed dive, with a bit of rudder added, because as your speed increases the flames will extinguish.
Lesson explaining and demonstrating the principles behind how to control your mixture manually in the aircraft that require it.
Every aircraft, with the exception of Central aircraft with inline engines have manual mixture control. Mixture is the ratio of fuel to air feeing into the engine. You should optimize the mixture before take off.
Lesson explaining Cold Engine starts and the Blip switch in Rise of Flight.
Cold Engine starts are for Inline engines only & The Blip Switch is available on Rotary engines only. You do this by starting the engine, closing the radiator, and letting it warm up for a few minutes to increase temperature. Rotary Aircraft do not need to be warmed up. Inline Engines need a warmup
This video lesson is demonstrating how to perform left and right hand barrel rolls in Rise of Flight.
Maneuvers in this video lesson were performed with a Sopwith Dolphin. Use of the Barrel Roll as a defensice maneuver to force an overshoot OR as a maneuver to prevent an overshoot which keeps you on the offensive.
This is known as the Hammerhead stall in modern times but Rise of Flight is a WWI simulator so we kept the original name and maneuver for it. Immelman Proceedure: Pull up vertical. Look to see if wings are perpendicular to the horizon. Apply full rudder as you begin to stall
Lesson demonstrating how to perform a slip turn in a Fokker Dr.1.
Slip-Turn - A turn conducted with zero angle of bank using the rudder. Slip-Turn Procedure : 1. Apply rudder in desired yaw direction. 2. counter the effect of yaw with opposite aileron. 3. adjust control surfaces to maintain attitude. Practice the Slip-Turn: For steady aim in head-on passes. For help learn the limitations of your aircraft
Video demonstrating spins and spin recover. This lesson uses Fokker E.III Eindecker in Rise of Flight to perform this particular techniques.
You may need to rock the stick back and forth with full rudder still applied, or even apply a little use of the Blip Switch in the left hand stall. 1. Increase and maintain pitch attitude to induce a stall 2. Apply rudder in desired direction of spin.
Video demonstrating how to enter right and left hand spins as well both spin recovery techniques required for the Sopwith Camel in Rise of Flight.
The right hand spin recovery is the standard for a spin, however due to the flight model the Sopwith Camel requires a special recovery for a left hand spin. The Sopwith Camel requires two different spin recover techniques
