I know that this has been brought up numerous times before but I want to make an official request.
The current grading system has been developed before the release of Global, therefore the landing requirement does not fit the current Global system. To get to (and maintain) grade 4, you must have 100 landings in the past 90 days, and to get to (and maintain) grade 5, you must have 200 landings in the past 90 days. This was developed back before Global, where the average flight was much shorter than now.
Longer flights = less flights. And less flights means that we can’t always keep the requirement. I am sure that most of us including myself do not have time to perform multiple flights daily, especially if they are medium/long haul. So please, FDS, we’re not asking you to get rid of the requirement or significantly reduce it, but at least make it more possible to get/maintain those grades.
“But RTG, you could just do touch&goes” Yes you can, but I’ve noticed that sometimes when you do them, it doesn’t count all the landings. Also, we may not realize it, but touch and goes take up a good chunk of time.
“But RTG, you could just do short flights like we used to” That totally defeats the purpose of Global. Sure, you could definitely do short-haul flights to help boost the grade, but me and many other people would like to fully enjoy Global by doing regular flights and getting the proper grades for them.
