Hello Infinite Flight Community!
I have come to you guys with an interesting idea that I hope the moderators consider. I would like to see some type of real training process for pilots. I think we should utilize the Training server for its actual name. To train pilots to fly on the expert server.
New pilots or pilots who don’t like to fly professionally would stay on the Casual server. For pilots who want to go through a training process, can apply for it. Once they get approved, they will get access to the Training Server. On the server there could be training sessions for pilots everyday. They will learn all the basics of flying, communicating with ATC, and making smart decisions for themselves and everyone else. IFATC prospects can also utilize the training server as a way to learn how to be a professional ATC controller, while at the same time, the pilots are training with them.
I think this puts a little more value into the expert server because this would be an actual test of piloting skills before joining expert server, as now you can be on expert server just by getting a certain amount of landings. That doesn’t really show how good of a pilot you are. Here’s a quick breakdown of the training process:
New Pilot (Grade 1) - Flies on Casual server until gathering __ landings.
Applies and gets approved for training (Promoted to Grade 2) - Trains on the training server.
Passes all tests/exams and gets approved for expert flying (Promoted to Grade 3).
To close this out, I would like to see this training process so that pilots on the Expert server have actually proven that they are truly an expert at flying. Let me know what you guys think.
