great topic mate, would be good to know what the decreased payouts are on the 2nd run throughs for gold?, and the time it takes for each level so we can get an idea of if these would be worth grinding for extra cash?

The payout for 2nd, 3rd and 4th run though are the same as missions were you get full amount for the first time then you get half in each play though afterwards...


If you manage to get gold in each playthough each lesson only take 2-5 minutes to do as you can see some of them have time requirements on them

Well this is certainly the place to complain about it.

I hated ground level.


Also the flight instructor is talking like doing the stuff in his school is normal for a military pilot. The npc Lazers at Fort Zancudo show else.

Some general tips:

You gain Piloting skill for doing each mission (don't know about repeats). Higher Piloting Skill makes almost all the missions easier.

Engine Failure: Mix of Luck and knowing how to manage your kinetic energy. Remember, you can move a bit side-to-side to bleed some extra energy.

Chasing Parachutes: When you come in to land, aim with L1 & R1 together and land on the 2nd ring and your character should end up within the center and get Gold.

City Landing: You are going to stop pretty quickly on the sand and can use your brakes, unlike Engine Failure...

Moving Landing: Be aggressive.

Formation Flight: For the first few formations, just use rudder control (R1/L1). If you are able to stay with them up to the Loops, you should be very close to Gold.

Ground Level: Drop your landing gear (R3) and don't use your accelerator (R2). You'll go slower and should have more control.

Collect Flags: Remember, the actual "collect" area is larger than the one shown; you sometimes don't need to get in between buildings to collect flags. Aside from than, you'll need a few runs to familiarize yourself with Flag locations and develop a good path.

Follow the Leader: You need to be full throttle and make the inverts/knife flights for Gold.

Ever since I heard 'Besra' I started to make typos with the Vesr-.... Vestra.


Vestra, Besra, Jesus. Both are the exact same. :sui:
