And as the other Dino said, drone sim/horde mode are the only way to "practice" right now.

I have the Constellation in the hanger but I have never flown it !
its been rusting for 4 months !

You are stepping foot into a single module, which is still in alpha state, so there is no Squadron 42 yet.

Your best bet is to print out the default controls, read the Arena Commander Pilot's manual, and change the keybinds to your liking. After that, start out in drone sim and free flight, unless you want to dive into the PvP slaughter fest right off the bat. I would also highly recommend (assuming you have an aurora) turning your Aurora into a Mustang the first change you get. It will be a free upgrade, if you are going from the same tier aurora to the same tier Mustang.

Aurora is a flying coffin cargo vessel, which means its basically worthless in Arena Commander. The Mustang is the other starter ship, which is geared towards combat.

this mechanic does not exist right now, as like I said above you are stepping foot into a single, alpha state module of the game.

Even then, you will have the ability to purchase basic insurance so that you can replace your ship, once we get that far into development. In fact, your game package should have included 3-6 months of basic hull insurance for your ship.

The constellation isnt flyable. So you have been given a loaner Hornet untill that time.

We are currently in Arena Commander V0.9. V1.0 will allow us to fly the the varients of the single player ships. V2 will allow the multiplayer ships (like your constellation).
