Could you elaborate on that? Are you asking if there is tutorials on how to do basic flight maneuvers, if there are was to control AI aircraft to do them, or perhaps something else?

Regarding AI control, there isn't a library for BFM as such - the AI system in FG is based around routes & flightplans, and AI aircaft in Bombable for instance which use this do not follow any typical BFM engagement methodology/doctrine.

There is a Nasal (scripted) opponent used in the FGAddon F-16 called the MiG-28 (from memory it uses the F-16 display model) used to practise BFM/ACM - this does distinguish between 1 circle/2 circle fights etc, but I haven't delved deep into how it works
