    Aircraft are the hardest to get unlocks for given there are plenty of 'aces' out there that perminantly live in them.

    For me (so far)

    Jets:
    IR Flares
    Heat Seekers

    Attack heli:
    IR Flares
    Heat Seekers

    Scout heli:
    IR Flares
    Heat Seekers

    Transport Heli:
    IR Flares

    Hmm seems to be a pattern there with my picks... Suspect

    what i've found works exceptionally well for the helicopter
    (bear in mind i also have the below radar permanent perk)

    guided rockets
    - semi-homing rocket pods, as pilot i didn't often get a positive kill to death ratio flying the attack helicopter but as soon as i unlocked these babies, every time i fly i get positive k/d. the rockets dont need a lock, they just hone towards a target. you still have to fire at the target but you get more hits on target that would normally miss. i can take out tanks across the map with two barrages, with a good gunner i can completely destroy and kill a full health tank in one pass. if i get the jump on the mobile AA, i can take it on and win. it works against helicopters too. you know when you see the enemy helicopter across the map, and he see's you and you both climb? you're too far away to lock heat seekers, but if you get the right lead with the rockets, you can get multiple hits on target in one barrage and 8/10 times win the dogfight early.

    IR Flares - still the best way of staying in the air. in a helicopter it is next to impossible to dodge a seeking missile unless you can pop below terrain, and you can't always know where a lock is coming from.

    Air to Air/Heat seekers - good for helicopter dogfights only. jets will out range it too quick, and 90% of helicopters run with IR flares, but it makes life very easy when they dont. i used it to snag targets that have already flared, and to put pressure on enemy helicopters in a dog fight. sometimes you get lucky and they flare too soon, sometimes they crash, it all helps. i am thinking of toying around with something else in place of this


    EDIT: Also, i found this, it is my bible http://www.flightsimbooks.com/gunship/07_1_Chapter_7.php
