Hey there everyone!
Well, a couple hours back I was just thinking about Infinite FLight and it’s possibilities, i don’t know if anyone’s thought about this yet, but this hit my head.
Everyone knows how pilots are given new grades and also pilots are allowed to access all kinds of aircrafts in one go.
What I’ve been thinking is that this system could be changed and improvised.
So basically what I’ve thought is that, the developers could make an automated system or maybe appoint specific people where pilots have to give a test once they’ve accumulated certain hours to gain access to the next higher grade. This will really help the pilot themselves know if they are worthy of this grade.
The test can be carried out on the basis of:
1.how the pilot handles his aircraft
2. How the pilot reacts to the ATC commands given to him.
Just by taking these two factors into consideration it will be a huge help to IFATC and also help improvise the knowledge of the pilot.
If the pilot fails he could take a retest within a week or so and the pilot can be given about 5 attempts to pass this test.
My other idea is the idea of introducing type rating for different aircrafts on IF for PC if ever there’s a PC version out for it.
So as the pilot goes on accumulating his hours flown, he should also be restricted to the aircrafts he could access. As the pilot accumulated more hours, he can be given access to different kinds of aircrafts and learn about them better. This will greatly help a pilot fly a particular aircraft much better rather than downloading all kinds of aircrafts and playing around with them.
This is what’s been in my mind lately and taking this into consideration that infinite flight is a simulator, introducing something like this would really add some next level realism to this great software putting aside working cockpits and other things that people are constantly asking about.
I just want to say that if the new grading system is introduced it would be really helpful to a lot of people and help them gain more knowledge than before and also this would reduce the amount of ghostings and reports.
