OK...I am new to the whole scripting but not Arma. I have played this fine game since Operation Flashpoint. So I got bored one day and thought "hey I should learn to make my own missions". Well being an airline pilot, I gravitate towards the aviation side. Most help videos, walkthroughs, help, etc that hold the newbies hand tend to be for the ground based side. So instead of punching my computer in its virtual face I decided to put my pride aside and ask....

The mission is simply for me to pilot a helicopter some distance down the runway, with a sniper in cargo, have the sniper hop out of my helo, then I fly back to where I started (since I am learning I am trying to learn fragments before I tackle the big picture).

I asked this in the BIS forums, someone responded and got pissy because it wasn't what I needed. They thought I was a squad member and wanted to script everyone, including me, to get out. In this instance I am the aircraft commander and do not want to exit the helo.

I have worked on this aspect for the last week and have learned a lot in the process. But this one is kicking my butt.

Be gentle, I get rocked at work enough and I have a pregnant wife (in Texas, in the summer)....thanks in advance gentlemen. Oh and I apologize in advance if there is a thread covering this, I plead it was either over my head, or my ADD kicked in...

"Hey what does that red,flashing, guarded button do..."

What you could use are radio commands.
Create the waypoint to embark and disembark and link each to a trigger linked to a radio command.
So if you use radio command Alpha scout embark, his waypoint get in will trigger.
Then make a radio command alpha scout disembark, once you activate it and you linked it to the waypoint he will disembark and continue with his next waypoint.
You could repeat this proces for every unit you want to transport. International ArmA 3 Unit.
