Jet haters need not apply. Post your favorite awesome jet videos here. Discuss dogfighting and ask advice from vetted jetters. Anything from posting your love for flying in gtao to asking how the basics work or tips on flying jets backwards. There is no aspect of jetting that doesn't belong here except hate.

Those who prove themselves to be jet pros will be added to the original post so you know who is giving proper advice. Jet master race check in here.

For those that aren't aware of the etiquette of an arranged dogfight here is how it works:

Both jets agree to go at it. Then we do what is called MERGING. This is where we fly head on at the same altitude, as close to a game of chicken as possible without intentionally crashing into one another. The instant the fly-by (merge) is over, it's time to engage the other player by any means possible.

So if you get a message in game that simply says "merge?", they are requesting a 1v1 dogfight.

Tip: when in a firefight, USE GUNS. People just avoid missiles so easily these days...

Cause i Google gtaforums for this thread title and there ain't nothing official on record.

Eta- unofficial is the actual word you're looking for.
Forget the hate. Leave that on the ground.

Not good in jets? This thread ain't for you. Move along and don't be bothered.

I find that a homing missile is a good way to get the jet you've already gained position on to turn. Thus, losing speed and entering cannon range for the kill.

I'm not that bad when it comes to dogfighting. Not sure where someone implied that they weren't good at this. I was simply questioning the necessity of this thread and the thread title.

Because i want to talk about anything and everything jets have to offer in gta with like minded forum goers.

Check the hate at the door. We're pulling chocks on some jet love.

Any tips to shorten the endless circling dogfight?
I can dodge the missles just fine but when it comes to the guns it seems to be luck if i hit them, we just go back and forth circling around.

Use the rudder while turning but turn downwards a little to perform a kind of small swoop. By doing this, you'll gradually end up having him in front of you if he keeps circling.

It all depends on your enemies speed. In the typical circular dog fight one person is usually at full afterburner. If this is so just hit the air brakes to tighten your turn radius. If they get far enough away but you can't get right behind them, try turning in the opposite way with an inside turn (toward the belly of your hydra/lazer). So an "S" shaped turn without rolling the plane. Full afterburner should only be engaged to maintain your desired speed or when you get behind them and they try to pull/straighten out of the typical circular dogfight.

I put official because it's in keeping with the forum tradition of an appreciation type thread...but we're not just staring at pictures cause they only come in haze gray. This thread is for improvement through shared knowledge and tips from those that know.

I'm quite proud of the fact that I can land a 747 at the Sandy Shores airstrip.

 

The secret is a long, straight. low approach and to remember to retard engines well before landing, rather than smashing onto the runway.

I have no idea why we can't purchase the jumbo jet. Can't think of a single way to "grief" in one or ruin others experience.

When diving, make sure your exit speed is at least 60% of your entry speed, to help avoid stalling and counter fire.

Yes, the slower your descent the more accurate you'll be against ground targets. After the kill punch the throttle up up and away :)

Thanks Lamar.

 

On another note - I recommend watching some of "Tonksi's" videos on YouTube. Sadly, he's inactive but there is some good footage on his channel which includes tips for fighting jets but also challenges and reviews of aircrafts.

Anyone who flies around in a jet is a coward who is skeered of mixing it up on the ground.
