I don’t know if this has been discussed, but I’m thinking the grade thresholds and xp formula will have to be adjusted when global comes out. I’m predicting there will be controversy over “set it and forget it” autopilots cruising the globe with unattended iPads. Personally I’ll be halfway in that category, I write for a living so I log a few hours cross country while working, shifting my attention occasionally to manage ascents, descents, landings. It’s a little too much distraction with short flights, but I tell you global means no holds barred for me. I promise I’ll answer atc and request transitions but I’m going to be logging 50 hours a week for maybe an hour or two per day of actual full-attention piloting. It’s gonna be sweet but it doesn’t seem fair that folks like me are going to end up as xp millionaires overnight.
Maybe it’s been said, but I submit that there will be a pretty critical need to significantly lessen the weight of flight hours in the xp formula, and increase the emphasis on actual landings in both xp formulae and the grade 4/5 thresholds
