Slewing Commands

In Free Flight and Quick Combat, you can slew to rapidly change aircraft position, direction, location, or altitude without actually flying in real time. Experiment with these commands a bit to see what they do!
Note that all number keys in this section refer to the number pad on the right side of the keyboard and that the Num Lock must be off.
