Aircraft improvement levels are preserved during any conversion that doesn't require ★MAX planes in the first place. Consider improving your planes before converting them in this case, as post-conversion planes either have higher improvement costs or currently cannot be improved at all. See also: 2016 June 30th misc. notes page for more information.

Aircraft Conversion refers to a series of (usually) one-time quests that let you upgrade planes of famous air groups. In general, these quest require the player to scrap certain planes, usually the aircraft that the air group is transferred to.

Skilled Crew Members are fairies that are awarded as inventory items and are required for quests that convert certain planes into Skilled versions. The conversion is permanent and uses one crew member per conversion unless stated otherwise.

Skilled Crew Members are currently obtainable from quests (A59, A62,B69 & F35) and as event map rewards (eg. Summer 2016 & E4 of Fall 2016). They can be assigned to Type 0 Fighter Model 21 via a monthly quest (F22) that requires Houshou.

NotesEdit

  • All Aircraft Conversion quests require the affected aircraft to be unlocked. Furthermore, if a quests requires certain planes to be scrapped, you should do so one plane at a time.
  • Bear in mind that when attempting the Aircraft Conversion quests for Egusa and Tomonaga Squadron as well as 601st Air Group, their quest progress i.e. equipment scrapping counter is reset when the plane you want to convert is removed from the flagship, or if the wrong plane is scrapped. Therefore it is important to double-check whether you have removed all equipment locks before attempting these quests.
  • The Aircraft Conversion quests for the Iwai and Iwamoto Flights, as well as the one for creating a Skilled Crew Member, require the planes that are converted to be at Rank 7. Furthermore, in the case of the aforementioned two flights the planes are reset to Rank 2, which means that you will have to retrain them to Rank 7 after each conversion.
  • Type 0 Fighter Model 21Type 0 Fighter Model 21 020 Card ★MAX can be converted to Type 0 Fighter Model 52 (Skilled)Type 0 Fighter Model 52 (Skilled) 152 Card ★MAX (which is equivalent to Reppuu (601 Air Group)Reppuu (601 Air Group) 110 Card in AA) every month via F22 and F25 (Skilled Crew Member is required).
  • If a quest requires ★MAX planes, their improvement level will not carry over to the new aircraft. This applies to all Aircraft Conversion quests after Fall 2016.
  • Please be advised that for quest F70 the Type 0 Fighter Model 52Type 0 Fighter Model 52 021 Card ★MAX cannot be converted into a Shiden Kai 2Shiden Kai 2 055 Card ★MAX.
