I have the same problem. Please fix.

Have also experienced this. Very annoying. The whole point of pausing the game is so I can go AFK or alt-tab without my plane crashing into stuff. If I recall correctly this happens when entering Zeus and possibly the map as well (map might have been fixed already).

Issue is still here as of November 2018, once airborne the Jet will also engage air-break at times. Behaviour is odd and often unpredictable when in the air.'

Video to showcase the issue. No keys are pressed other than ones to open up dialogs which force me to lose control over plane (Chat/Escape menu.)

As far as I am aware, using the camera and opening the Arma 3 map do not cause this issue to happen. Adding a marker will, though. From this I gather it happens when another dialog excepts keyboard input in which throttle won't trigger.

Reason I think that's the case is because whilst in the map screen there is nothing that excepts input until you open up text dialog. The camera does not override throttle conrol and the escape menu jacks all the controls too - this is just an assumption and could be 100% wrong.

I have the same issue and everyone else that I know has this issue.
