Exhibit: Fighters Anthology (1998)
I have created some Training Missions to help you get the most out of Fighters Anthology.
Unzip them and copy them into your Fighters Anthology directory.

Load the mission "mmprop1".
You'll find yourself in a Douglas AH-1 Skyraider at Key West Air Base, Florida. Basic Training starts in a prop driven aircraft rather than a jet. Compared to most of the other aircraft in Fighters Anthology, the AH-1 is a relatively tame performer . This is desirable for initial training as the fast jets tend to "get away" from you!
Key West is a decent sized airbase with no high terrain nearby to run into. There will be other traffic in the area too, but they have been advised of your training flight. Still, keep your eyes open.
Navigation points (Waypoints) have been entered into your nav gear to take you on a typical circuit pattern. Use this mission to practice.
At the LOAD ORDNANCE screen, unload all weapons.
Set the internal fuel load to 50%
You remove weapons and fuel because this is the state your aircraft will typically be in at the end of a combat mission. The weight of an aircraft affects the handling characteristics, particularly at landing.
Before we work through the checklists let's have a look around.
