Hello IFC, I just have a quick question about the grading system. I’m a grade 3 going on to grade 4 (I only need like 20 more landings), and I cant wait! But the problem is that I’m always very busy and only have like a couple hours a day to play IF (Most the time at night). So i’m worried that once I get to Grade 4, I’ll immediately get demoted back down to grade 3, because i cant keep up with the standard of 100 landings per 90 days. Does anyone have any tips or tricks to keep your grade with little time?
If landings are the issue, you can only multiple short flights or make pattern work to increase the count.
For me this isn’t worth the effort for Grade 3 to 4.
Check out this thread: Is it in your opinion worth getting from grade 3 to grade 4?

To keep landings up and to BUTTER them, head over to Madrid international using a TBM and just touch and go and follow the runways. There’s a lot and it’s useful. LEMD
I believe there is a specific number of landings that you need to have within 90 days.
Go to EGLL on casual, spawn in an A318, and just bank and land on each parallel runway.
yeah, and to be honest, im comfortable at grade 3. I have all the features that a grade 5 has anyway, right? (Or am I wrong?)
Nope, grade 5 has a yellow orang-ish name tag.
yeah thats a good strategy, but ill only do it when its not active, because it can get BUSY

But I am more than happy with Grade 3 and don’t need things like a special rag colour.
I flew the XCub on the Casual Server for nearly and hour and got 52 landings.
haha I feel that way too, but I also feel it would be super cool to have the green nametag
WHAT?! 52?! I fly pattern work for 20 mins and get 5 landings! (Nice job though, im impressed XD)
@Bravo59 I got 80 landings in the A318 at EGLL within 1:30! mins.
It’s the best strategy, trust me
Touch&Goes is the best thing to do.
I was flying like an idiot I would touchdown then take straight back off and land on the opposite runway.
thanks, ill try it :)
well it worked so…
Yeah I recommend it, I would takeoff on 25R then land on 7L then takeoff on 7L then land on 25R.
Yeah, also at EGLL!
