I personally fear AA (including Jets) about 3x as much now when I fly on Kashan than Tanks/other vehicles.

Not sure what you're going on about. Mongolian summed it up well, Helo Pilots need to have a better sense of the flow of battle thinking strategically about how they want to fly. I was creating a guide about how to fly Transport/Logistics well, but stopped. Might end it know, since it went into good detail about the line of advance regarding where your forces are and what the best path is to get to them/exit out.

This is absolutely untrue. AA will always lock on flares if they are anywhere near the sight picture rather than the real heat source.

i found that flying a helicopter is much easier in PRSP than PR

I noticed playing Muttrah, that people who are in INF squads, or even APC squads, as soon as they spawn they run for a helo. I even saw a friendly firefight between a squad of pilots and some guy in INF fight because the INF guy kept taking the helos, and crash them right over the edge.

Not to mention, how many times whilst in a helo, and telling the pilot where i want to get dropped off, they drop me off in the middle of enemy territory, thinking I'm some haxorspesialforses, thus me getting shot 2 seconds after.(and helo going down)
