Looking to get a feel on the possibility of removing the “aerobics are not allowed in the vicinity of airports.”
Also, not getting flagged by an IFATCer for progressing past 250kts(in a military jet) when performing a simulated unrestricted climb.
I’m a military jet fan. And would like the opportunity to do simulated airshows as well as the items mentioned above. Would love to hear some feedback!
Even from an observers perspective (ie when taxing next to active runway) it would be cool to watch a jet do an unrestricted climb on the expert server. Just looking for a more life like scenario rather than the casual server
From a larger perspective - Casual Server is the most appropriate place for this.
There have been various “Aerobatic” Event Servers in the past with low attendance and popularity, which is why it’s not a thing any longer. Should however some sort of new interest for this reappear, I’m sure we could accommodate it.
Casual Server is the lowest populated server so experiencing this is not very likely. And the world is quite big, so there’s more than enough room.
In the best of worlds (it’s been discussed internally before), a certain ATC response would “remove” the ability to get a certain type of violation for any reason.
Like when you’re very, very heavy in an airliner and may need to exceed 250 KIAS below FL100 or similar. The same argument could be applied here.
From what I’ve understood of those discussions, there’s currently technical limits within the app & server infrastructure that allows us to do that. Can’t speak for the future on this, but it is brought up from time to time and it may not be impossible to implement something like this later on.
