@jakevaz423. MaxSez: Pls publish your Training Curricula, a list of Standardized Lesson Plan OutLines, Source Data (Are the AIM or IF Tutorials the primary sources!) Finally the Qualifications of your “Trainers”?
On the surface this initiative appears to be a fine “volunteer effort” Not sponsored by FDS. It is not an original undertaking. TS-1 organized Training has a long history of failure. Your views.
We don’t release our training program, mainly because it’s tailored for each person. It can range from how to use basic commands such as give way to handling traffic patterns at extremely busy airports.
As you stated, we aren’t supported by FDS. We are obviously going to try our best to keep order and civility, but it will all stem from a helpful and curious community!
@RealAviation1974…MaxSez: Well a closed shop, can’t argue your position on opening for review proprietary information. How ever it does leave me with a question relating to credibility.
(I suppose you and your crew will have the honorary TSATC in your operational Controllers name block when signed into an open position. We’ll need to have the ability to identify the wheat from the chaff for gripes. Don’t want to confuse your people with plain old Trainees for reporting purposes.)
It would be great to really see the training server rise up and become a more refined experience for those who are really training to enter the expert level or gain a great understanding of aviation through the Infinite Flight Simulator. I know this is hopeful.
But… having a schedule like this on the training server will create consistency which benefits and increases the level of experience of the training server pilots. And remember, these are the pilots entering the expert server as well, which obviously has become more of an issue recently.
The larger that this community can grow, on the ATC side and pilot side, means the more behaved the training server will become. Which I believe in turn will show the “uninformed pilots” on the training server that there is a convention and standard to follow, and even more importantly a community to join!
