More fun than the first one IMO. And double RP for these jobs;

  • Acquire Targets III
  • Air Race "In The Loop" (use Lazer)
  • AF Zero III
  • GTA: Wingmen
  • Parachuting "Under the Bridge"
  • Air Race "Branching Out" (helicopters - use Swift)

Also apparently 2 new Contact Missions (Martin & Trevor) and a bunch of VS missions.

  • Chop Chop
  • Effin' Lazers (yay, a Lazers mission!)

Played it this morning, got the High Flyer Parachute or whatever it is. Jobs are alright, but Air Force Zero is still ridiculous lol. It's way too easy for the Attacking Side (which I was on)

Already had that bag so cheers for confirming it unlocks it (again), right?

 

I started AF0 by going really high, but the first checkpoint is at ground level and I died shortly after :/

i dont understand this type of thinking....You may night like to fly but the fact there growing this game is actually pretty impressive...People complain all the time, but if you step back and look at it from a bigger picture, you realize the fact there TRYING imo is all that matters...Some companies, EA for example care about 1 thing $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$...

Like hell they're trying, I was mislead about GTA V.  From the past, their games were about CRIME.  Now it's about bullsh*t, there is literally NOTHING to f*cking do it's so goddamn boring I can't stand it.  Even killing in this game isn't even fun, while I can spend hours upon hours of killing in TLoU's multiplayer.  

 

I'd be fine if the shooting mechanics were legit and there was real stealth in this game but there isn't.  It's a piece of sh*t video game, and the people in charge at cockstar should be fired and should never be able to work in this town again.

Agreed it's more free stuff and doing something a little different just makes the game more expansive.
I agree it wasn't the best update, eventhough I love to fly, but it's free so I definitely not complaining.

The new missions sound fun. I wonder if this was planned all along, or a last minute update to make up for the lukewarm reception of the flight school update.

The good news is that you can ignore it, and it won't bother you. I don't understand the mentality that you don't want something to exist, even if it's completely optional, just because it doesn't appeal to you. How selfish can you be?

I beat /won air force zero as the actual runner plane by doing constant loops the entire trip to the objective lol.

I guess if you like "flying" in a linear path? But the voice acting in the original Star Fox is amazing! And the game isn't much longer than doing two survivals... If you hate flying so much you could always hang around Zancundo with a tank and prevent them. You seem like the type that would love doing that. LOL!

Depends how long it takes but they both pay OK, I've had 13-18K from them. Chop Chop pays better because it has to take longer, but Lazers is fun and you could make it last.

New GTA Online Flight School Jobs Now Available to Play + Earn Double RP in the New Playlist
 
Posted 1 hour, 34 minutes ago | Author: R* Q | Filed Under: Games
 
 
As of today, we've added 16 additional new jobs to GTA Online. These include new scenarios for all three of the new VS Mission modes (Acquire Targets, Air Force Zero & G-Rating) that recently debuted as part of the San Andreas Flight School Update, plus a pair of new Contact Missions and a selection of new Air Races, Parachute Jumps and more.
 
Along with these new Jobs, we've also created the New Flight School Jobs Playlist that features a varied assortment of the new Jobs from today's update. This special Playlist will award you Double RP all week long - and for those who may have been unable to unlock the exclusive 'High Flyer' Parachute Pack as part of our recent Event Weekend, we're making that available to all who play through this new Playlist to completion. Read on below for descriptions of these new Jobs and remember boys, no points for second place.
 
NEW CONTACT MISSIONS
 
As part of today's update, two new Contact Missions are available to play (once you meet the rank requirement you'll receive a phone call from the associated Contact):
 
Chop Chop (Contact: Trevor, Rank 43, 2-4 Players)
 
"Our friend Ronald is getting increasingly agitated about Merryweather Security’s presence in the state, and a nervous Ron gets on my t***. Why don't you go to Sandy Shores Airfield, hack into the Merryweather Network, find their outposts and then take their choppers and blow 'em all to hell. Okay? Great!"
 
Effin' Lazers (Contact: Martin, Rank 44, 2 Players)
 
"The market’s about to be flooded with inferior product. I... WE... have too much invested in it to let that happen. I need you to get in some Lazer fighter jets and take out the planes holding product before they land. It sounds extreme, but these are desperate times."
 
NEW RACES
 
Branching Out (Rank 20, 1-8 Players)
 
From the sea side to mountain peaks, from hikers to technophobic, cannibalistic cultists, from state parks to secret weed farms, the San Andreas wilderness has it all. Drink it in with this Lap Race for choppers by Mount Chilliad and Raton Canyon.
 
Flying Colors (Rank 12, 1-8 Players)
 
Regulation Air Force exercises happen at high altitude over the ocean, but where’s the fun when you can’t get a feel for how fast you’re flying. Lap Race for planes low over rural Eastern Blaine County. How close to the dirt can you go without taking the head off a fruit picker?
 
High Dive (Rank 1, 1-8 Players)
 
Dive bomb Downtown in this point to point for jets. You start in the Tongva Hills, climb to high altitude, make a near vertical descent, and try to pull up at the last minute. It’s the highest climb and fall we’ve got on our books. You’ll make an impression or make an impression on the ground.
 
In The Loop (Rank 35, 1-8 Players)
 
Hold onto your lunch or you’ll need windshield wipers on the inside of your cockpit. Point to point for jets through the docks and Downtown. Obstacles to avoid and two loop the loops will keep you on your toes… or your head.
 
PARACHUTE JUMPS
 
Airstrip (Rank 11, 1-8 Players)
 
If a recruit shacks it on exercise, they don't need the added humiliation of hitching back to the landing strip. Practice landing where you took off with this flowing descent from 4,300 ft. to McKenzie Airfield. On the way down you can admire the view or ruminate on failure.
 
Under the Bridge (Rank 11, 1-8 Players)
 
Gravity does most of the hard work when you jump out a chopper from 4,000 ft. We’re going to make it a bit more interesting by staging the drop in the flight path, and making recruits go under a bridge. Best played at night, so you can see the warning lights on obstacles.
 
CAPTURE
 
GTA: Wingmen (Rank 1, 2-8 Players)
 
It’s a buyer’s market as rival groups attempt to deliver Buckingham military jets to LSIA. They’re vintage collectors’ items and they fly like it, so use Lazers for defense and attack. Each team will only have one Buckingham in play at any time. Start points are Fort Zancudo and the Sandy Shores Airfield.

 

*I edited the order of new races/etc. above

As much of a scramble as I went to to ensure I got the "High Flyer" bag...

 

I had to replace my PS3 laser by hand with no knowledge of that rubbish before hand. Had I of known they were gunna do another one.... At this rate they might as well bring out the Roosevelt for five million.

 

I'd bite.

 

 

HARD.
