I would like to propose that a button be added to the info box that can be brought to the forefront of the screen when you click on the pilot and hit ‘show info’ or when you click on the airport and can see the open frequencies.
I find many times while flying that I want to reach out to the person to ask them a question regarding something that they did or I did, as a learning experience for either party.
What would the button do?
When you click the button, a default generic email gets sent directly to the other user’s email that they use for their Google or Facebook sign in, from your own email that you use as your Google or Facebook sign in.
The email would say the following:
Pilot to Pilot or ATC to Pilot:
“Hello [insert in-app display name], I have an inquiry regarding something that transpired while you were flying. Could you please respond to this email at your earliest convinence.”
Pilot to ATC:
“Hello [insert in-app display name], I have an inquiry regarding something that transpired while I was flying, and you were one of the controllers on duty. Could you please respond to this email at your earliest convenience.”
The person would then either chose to ignore the email or respond and start a conversation.
New Pilot Info Box:
New ATC Frequency Info Box:
On each respective site (Google, Facebook) each user has the option to opt in or opt out of sharing their email. If this were to be added; the next time the user logs into Infinite Flight, a message could pop up saying that there was a change to permissions, so that users could take action and opt out.
What if the other user opts out?
Once you send the message, a default message would be sent to you saying:
The user [insert in-app display name] that you have attempted to contact has opted out of email sharing.
I hope you like the concept!
