Just started playing yesterday. There is a Combat Recon mission for 1000 gold that I'm guessing is for new players. Not sure exactly what I'm supposed to do.

Just keep playing, there are several minor objectives in the chain awarding minor amounts of gold... totaling 1000 by the end of the chain.
I don't want to hurt you... I just want to kill you!

Ok, thanks.. It shows I have completed "1 of 3". I think the "1" was for two kills in a game, but not really sure.

There's a menu tab for the combat reconnaissance missions on the top left of the hangar screen.

 

Once opened, the ongoing mission requirement and progress will be displayed on the bottom of that window (see the screenshot below)

Spoiler

It is not always clear but several missions will have multiple conditions which have to be fulfilled in more than one battles.

 

Adding to that, there was a mission I was stuck on for a few days. The one to destroy 3 ground targets in a battle, three times.

 

In case you also get stuck on this same one, here's some information that I learned from doing it:

  • A ground target = a cluster of buildings with individual icons when you get closer 
  • Some planes deal ground damage very efficiently (all Ground Attackers, all Heavy Bombers and the tier 4 Heavy Fighters)
  • Some planes deal ground damage very inefficiently (all Light Fighters of any tier and some Multiroles)
  • Any tier 5 plane can destroy 3 ground targets without problems, except for Light Fighters

Welcome to the game!  Please recognize that gold it something that usually costs real money, so choose prudently how to spend it, or - you can use real money to buy crates of it.

Anyway, welcome, and I hope you find success and more so enjoy flying with us.

I haven't checked, but this patch has new Recon missions and I think they bailed on the old ones .  You should still be able to get 1000 old .

There are many missions ,some give you gold and some give you items for your plane for up grading equipment. Play though it and it will explain it almost all.
