Yes, you do. When in a plane, one should be constantly
switching between the right and left triggers; L for slowing when turning or strafing, then R for accelerating out of turns and when gaining altitude. Using the boost button is also essential, again, for the same reasons as accelerating. Once you get these basics down, kills start piling up far more readily.
I also have seen many pilots that think in somewhat to extreme linear terms. I'm never, ever at the same altitude for more than a second or two, even in a dogfight. Even when some go vertical, they do so in a perfect line, forming a singularly linear loop. Be prepared to get shot down if such is your strategy.
A plane should dance in the air, not just simply move through it from point A to point B.
