i believe this is a current work arround atleast for arma2.
check the arma3 config file

//-- author benny - auto dump flares on locked aircraft.

Private ["_flarecount","_missile","_vehicle"];
_vehicle = _this select 0;
_missile = _this select 1;

if (alive _vehicle && (getPos _vehicle) select 2 > 5) then {
_isActive = _vehicle getvariable "FlareActive";
_type = getNumber (configFile >> "CfgAmmo" >> _missile >> "AirLock");
if ((_type == 1) && (! _isActive)) then {

		private ["_flarecount"];
		_vehicle setVariable ["FlareActive", true];
		if ((driver _vehicle) == player) then {_vehicle vehicleChat "WARNING: incomming missile!"};
		_flarecount = _vehicle getVariable "FlareCount";
		if (_flarecount > 0) then {
			_this Spawn CM_Spoofing;
			for [{_i=0}, {_i<8}, {_i=_i+1}] do {
				[_vehicle] Call CM_Flares;
				sleep 0.3;
		_vehicle setVariable ["FlareActive", false];

Mass closing ancient tickets with no activity for > 12 months; assume fixed or too trivial.

If this issue is still relevant in current dev build, please re-post.
