I have noticed that when i switch planes an airbase after being shot down, that I am unable to lock onto planes for the rest of the battle.

Make sure the keys are bound to the lock on function.

Wait, there's a lock on button? ( followed by, "They serve it in PINTS?" ) I don't recall ever using it..what tier does it kick in at..

I can’t promise that if you choose to fight, that there will ever be a victory…or a day that we can step down and say our work is finished. Our lives are the sum total of thousand of choices. And the burden of that freedom is sometimes too much to bear. But you won’t have to do it alone anymore. We will find a better way..

Together.

It's a base mechanic of the game.

When you hover your cursor over an enemy plane (or press a button), you "lock on" to that plane and it will show you more detailed information about it. Vital for joystick fighters (you can press a button to have the camera follow the plane you're locked on to). Less so for mouse players.

Way back, it used to be more relevant because locked on enemy planes would show up in a target window on the bottom left of the screen and a lead indicator would be projected in front of only the plane you were locked onto.

they are bound. The only time they stop working is when i get shot down and re spawn as a different plane at an airbase.

I usually don't switch planes. But I had this bug too. 

Best solution: Don't switch planes if you want lock on buttons to work. I'm using a joystick, so it's important for me to lock on.

 

Here is similar thread on Russian forum:

I'm having this issue as well. Sometimes it occurs when you are shot down, sometimes it happens for no reason.
