Look mate, real pilots had that feeling too, it might seem obvious, but the WW2 answer is, fly higher, flying higher has two good attributes, you crash less and stay alive longer and also fight the enemy longer, to be bluntly honest, lingering longer over the sea commenting on wave heights in the sim is Tree stuff.

Its getting old.

I said even when I fly high I still feel like I am flying low because the waves are to big. I'll give another example and hopefully you'll know what I mean. Say you are flying a few thousand ft up in a jet and they built a runway that is the size of the USA you would look as though you were about to land.

Off at a tangent I know, but I worked with a guy that got his licence and did all his flying the flying club at RAAF Pearce in Western Australia, flying Cessnas from the 2400+ metre runway.

On his first cross country he had to do a touch and go at Jandakot Airport (max length 1392m)

He recons that when he came in he almost freaked out, shook his head and said "how do they expect me to land on that tiny thing!!!!!!", I'm not sure what his instructor said?


Cheers

A Jet?

Ahh, got you now, you are flying in arcade mode ... fair play, but in real life ... real pilots would be disorientated too, you would be frantically looking around in your cockpit, look at the HI, alt, speed instruments and out the perspex to get back in safe flying config, then fight again, then only if you shot everyone down worry about the realism of wave hight.
