Adding gliders to IF‼️

Hello everyone I hope you all are safe during everything going on in the world. For those who don’t know me, my name is Steven, I’m 14 years old and a irl glider pilot! I’m working on getting my private pilot glider license.

I believe with with project Metal coming IF should be able to run gliders and the weather effecting gliders.

For glider start/tow: I have an idea where gliders can only start At non-popular/ smaller(GA) airports to reduce the risk of trolls. I think that IF would be able to make a way to pre-select/ make a towplane route before spawning in and if atc is available they can approve/ deny it. If no atc is available then you spawn in and the tow plane goes. I think they can make it to where the towplane can maneuver around any conflicting traffic!

For gliding/thermaling: IF would need a way to generate thermals and/or ridge lift. I would love to fly cross country on IF.

For landing: Gliders would have priority over powered planes like irl flying.

If you have any questions feel free to PM me or comment and I’ll answer!
