Help with the training missions
HI everyone, I have just started flying recently and am checking out all the tutorials and guides I can find. I would really like to work through the training missions along with the manual for them but I cannot get them to work ? The missions are shown on the TE screen but when I commit to one and go to the mission schedule page it shows that the mission is not available and I cant takeoff.
I have tried to find the answer through the forums etc but no luck.
Thanks in advance

Hello Tommo and welcome to BMS
We need more info to help you out
Which BMS version?
Which training mission?
Are you sure you’re into a F-16 seat? (read the intro of the training manual)
Hi Red Dog thanks for the quick response !
As far as I can tell its 4.33 but not sure where to find the full version info ? The config window shows F4 patch version 5.0 ?
The training missions are the TR433_01_GroundOps onward as covered in the Training manual that I just realised you are the Author off so thanks a lot for the help mate !
Do you mean am i flying an F16 ? if so then yeah I am.
Appreciate the help.

ok, great I wanted to ensure that you actually weren’t trying the 4.32 TE
That’s out of the equation, you’re on 4.33.
Once the TE is selected you do click commit (bottom right)
Now ground ops has multiple flight. The first on the ATO are 2 flights of A-10 (PATROL and DCA).
You should look on the bottom left side of the screen and select the third flight, the one with F-16 icon, TRAINING. with a callsign of Goblin 2
The reason I mention this is to ensure that you don’t do the usual mistake with selecting the A-10 flight
The A-10 flights are just there to populate the airbase and the radio frequencies
Click on the F-16 icon and double check that you’re pilot name is in there and then click Takeoff.
If you want to follow the manual, select the ramp option at the next screen
If that doesn’t work, let me know what’s the problem
I ended up re-installing BMS 4.33 and now I can do the missions.
The problem I was having was after clicking commit, there was not a mission available or any flights showing at all. Not sure why this was happening but after reinstalling it all works.
Big thanks for trying to help me out! Really looking forward to doing these missions and the challenge of learning how to Fly this beast.
