Air Combat Simulator Tactics and Maneuvers

Inverted Flight Practice
|Minimum Altitude||1000 feet|
- You're flying straight and level upside down (1).
- Push forward on the stick to obtain a 10° rate of climb (2).
- Pull back on the stick to obtain a 10° dive (3).
- Push forward on the stick to obtain straight and level flight (4).
All stick commands are opposite during inverted flight. This maneuver—as well as turning while inverted—should be practiced until the opposite commands become second nature. In a dogfight, inverted flight is common, and you don't want to turn the wrong way or dive into the ground.
Practice flying upside dawn to get comfortable with the way the aircraft responds to the stick.
