I found a workaround in TS for the BalloonHover key which is known from RA2.

Way 1:
Just set the speed of an air unit to 3 or lower. Then it isn't able to land anymore.
With this low value, it can't reach the point anymore, where it has to be to start the landing process.

Way 2:
Give an air unit SlowdownDistance=0.01. The aircraft is now always too fast to land and this way circles around the landing point. And in addition it looks really great ingame how it flies around the target point.
Note: use overrun weapons (projectile with ROT=1 or 0). Shuffle weapons (ROT>=2) don't work on this one.

Note: Once started they'll never land again (not even on helipads or repair bays). So they should get infinite ammo.

SlowdownDistance is an integral number, and 0.01 gets rounded to 0. #Tongue

i have a bit trouble to follow you, but i try to answer

The 2 different techniques work a bit different.
If you use technique 1 then you can take any weapon you want and the unit works like any usual aircraft.

Using technique 2, you are forced to use overrun weapons like Orca bomber or Nod banshee. This is because the unit can't slow down enough and stop in midair anymore to fire missiles like the Orca Fighter.
When you want the unit to stop, it will instead fly constantly in 8 shapes.
