Flight Training Program

Hello,
I’m sure many other IFATC members and pilots would agree with me when I said that IF could really use a flight training program. I’m sorry if this has been mentioned before but I have looked into the topic for a while and have not been successful in finding anything regarding this.
A training group like this would allow new pilots to learn the basics of flying and let current pilots grow their skills. Infinite Flight is a great recourse for those who are learning to fly in real life. Even though this kind of training would most likely not be fully realistic, it would still give aspiring pilots a head start in their flying career and help those who just enjoy the hobby of flight simulators.
With a group that functions similar to the way the Infinite Flight ATC Education Group functions, users can seek help from expert pilots who are willing to teach and mentour other users. There is not better recourse than a live one! I hope this may be taken into consideration for I feel it would make a great addition to the infinite flight community as well as the flying aspect of Infinite Flight.

(If this should be under a different category, please let me know. I had a hard time finding out how to have it added to the “Features” category.)

Great idea!!
Although don’t we already have a YouTube Channel for Infinite Flight. I mean the channel is not specifically related to training stuff but the dev’s do post content related to improving your flying skills.

Like mentioned, there’s the Infinite Flight ATC Education Group as well.

And another thing, some VA’s also run training program for their pilots.

There’s the flying guide as well.

So I feel it would be a little redundant if we have a general training program for everyone. Furthermore, for all the members it would be a really hard task. I’m not saying it’s impossible but we’ve already got some stuff.

I totally understand where you are coming from. I just think it would be nice if there was an extra recourse to cover the things that aren’t already covered in the videos or manual. Even if it was just a channel added to the IF server where pilots could ask questions. Similar to the way the ATC education server works seeing as they have the videos and manual as well. Just an idea though. I appreciate the feedback!

Definetely understand. When I joined the community and started getting into it, I had no clue what was going on. The tutorials and guides can be quite bad, as they keep hopping you around to learn the basics, specially in the actual flying
