Need to know if I should train my crews for the other planes in a premium, will they train faster?

You would probably have to turn on crew training in the garage. Along the bar at the top of the garage, on the right side it says Crew I think. Click that and in there you can check a box to accelerate crew training just like in tanks. Why this isnt in the garage I dont know....

 

But that is the only way I know to get premiums to train crew faster.

Premium planes can't train crews for other planes...they can only build up the crew skills once the pilot is at 100% proficiency for the plane they are trained in.

Premium planes do have a 20% bonus to crew experience built-in along with being elited by default allowing them to use accel crew training from start...and I think T8 prem has an additional 20% bonus to aircratt EXP...

 

...the only problem is, you can only train skill points and not the percentage in premium planes.

That's what I'm wanting, to train up my skill points.  That answers the question, wanted to know if there was a bonus to crew experience.  Thanks.

One thing to consider also is the nature of the aircraft and how easily it can acquire experience by affecting the outcome of battle.  The J8M, for example, while premium, and fun to play, is not necessarily going to be the one that gets you the most experience per time invested.  When it came out, it had a 20% bonus indicated on the outcomes screen.  Whether that was because it was tier 8, or to compensate for its lack of 'time on target' , or both, I cannot say.  I have not flown it in awhile so I cannot say definitively that it still gets, or indicates, additional 20%.  In any case, something to consider.

That's the proof of flying in the top tier bracket...oxygen masks. Check that out ingame sometimes in your T8-10 planes now that the zoom function has been returned in 2.0.4 :great:

I don't see that anymore, either. Could've gone with 2.0 update...but all T8 prem did get that 20% bonus (NC 1070, JL-1A-37, and La-11 all did for me).

My IL-40 pilot and gunner have them. That mask reminds me of this: 


This is my IL-2 (t). There are many like it, but this one is mine. :child:
