In this first video (which, let me warn you) it's 5-hours long, Chris goes through a lot of topics as he goes through this live training session.


  • What is CAS - history, aircraft and weapons selection, SA, air-space de-confliction
  • Ground school flight training - vectors ingress/egress, LZ landings, transiting with terrain, SA
  • Combat zone - map marking, grid refs, permissions, SA, basic comms
  • Combat aircraft - limitations, functionality, warnings (RWR and indicators)
  • Communications - general call-outs, combat call-outs, de-confliction call outs and ECAS

There's a lot to go on in this video and I can't wait to watch the next ones.
