Instead of exiting your kite and re-planeing each time you land, you can "Refuel and Repair " for a quick turnaround. This is especially useful of you land at a non-active airfield.
On the mission map, active airfields are shown as a white aircraft icon, inactive ones are grey, and the red ones have been bombed out of commission.
You can launch initially only from the active fields (white), but you can refuel and repair at white or the more numerous grey fields even if damaged. Very handy in times of trouble, and saves a long flight to an active field to reload.

How to...
Do not exit your current aircraft, even if banged up. Instead...
2  Open or click into a text chat window (Ctrl + Left mouse click on the window, or your hot key ) To make a text window, right mouse on your active screen / click New Info Window / select Chat Input, select chat output, save.
3  Type the following in the message bar:     <RR80   
    <RR = refuel and repair. The '80' is the percentage of fuel you choose to take.   <RR100 therefore gets you a full tank which is more than an hour mostly flat out. 30% or 40% will get you to winchester on most sorties.
4  VERY IMPORTANT 1 !!!  You need to click out of the text chat window for your key commands to work again.
5  EVEN VERY IMPORTANTER 2 Your brakes are set to 100% - full on, when you have refueled. Make your first action to release your brakes (Just tap your brakes and they will release) then start as usual... chocks in , fuel on, up elevator trim, ignition, 20% throttle for 20 secs, 25%+ for 20 secs, full power and chocks away.
Nice point - your radiator will retain its setting from your landing. But do check it anyway.

When (not If :)) you forget to take off your brakes, you will nose over and send $1 to the AKA beer jar. Its pretty full, but still room! 20 refuels without forgetting brakes, the jar is yours. Apply to the SargMgr.
