To allow pilots to function in a simple standardized system, why not have a YS Heavy flight school.

In this experienced pilots can teach new people how to fly an airliner well, including takeoff and landing procedures, etc,

sound good?

Great idea. I was always weary of each VA having their own little training division.
I make this website.

same, this lets the VAs focus on flying, and lets all of us have fun.

plus it will encourage eager new members to learn and join in.


anyone else in?

EDIT: aetlos, you fly civies well?

I actually had an idea to do something like this and establish a school for teaching newbie's the basics through advances of flying with a combination of realistic and simulated training.

I think it would be a good idea, teaching newbies the basics before they join a VA. I once met a VA pilot on a server who didn't know what ILS was.

ok. well now its established that it will happen, how shall we do this?

I propose that perhaps a guide-type-post should be written, outlining the basics of handling the aircraft.

After that a number of smaller posts can explain other key ideas.

what do you guys say?

Uh, haven't joined any VA yet. Does that matter? (haven't had time yet)

edit:
Also, what I had in mind was more 'live' as in, you fly with your teacher.

I have a basic flight tutorial (meant for instructors to use really) but I'll PM it to you Phoenix and you can take a look at it.

This is cool, could also be combined to become a joint effort between VAs to lessen the load.

Nice one

You might also want to think about making a video tutorial covering some of the basics, like using ILS. I remember seeing one on youtube, but the resolution sucked so much that you couldn't read anything on the screen, making it completely useless. It would help the people who couldn't get to a server for lessons at pre-prescribed times. A flight recording might also be useful showing the HUD and ILS stuff.

DAMN IT.

You stole my idea.

For a while now, I was planing on integrating virtual pilots licences, so you could start as a student pilot and work up to airline transport, aerobatics, instructor, etc.

Epic idea. Perhaps trainers and instructors could be assigned a topic(s) (specialties?) that they would teach. we could could have "ground instructors" that work here on the forum via PMs and the rest could work as hands on instructors (flying with the students). It might work almost like the Jedi/Padawan system where a student sticks with one teacher and flies a check ride with that person as a final test for the virtual license.

Can we have a branch for helicopters? Me and aetios are horrible at landing them and my abrupt descents would make the passengers very uncomfortable (200+ ft/s).

a few points.

A: VNAF I think its great, and can be adapted to Airliners.

B: This is about the absolute basics, beginning from how to fly an airliner.

C:

Nope. But the "flying with co-pilot" is the way this will run.

F:

I'm opening this new school, it will not be a continuation of anything else, and truly independant.

G: No trainers, the point is that you learn to handle the big jet, so a 172 is no good. I mean A300 at least (or Tu-134...)
