Would it be because it would make too much sense.

Experimental as in civilian aircraft that are registered "Experimental"...this usually includes light sport aircraft and things like that. Fictitious could count if it's a general aviation aircraft as well.

Way back on YSTK and YSP1, there used to be an "Aerobatics" forum that was pretty popular for a while. Maybe that could be re-established for such purposes. Just a suggestion though.

I'm thinking this might end up being moved to the Discussion section of Site Discussion, because it could be the stuff a general member proposal is made of. ;)

Let me know if you want to go that way.

Privately-owned 757s count as general aviation, don't they?

Technically speaking yes, since they are not used for scheduled commercial air transport.

Since Barracuz is the only opposition, I went ahead and put this to a vote for the staff. The results will come in 3 days. :)

The motion didn't take off...It crashed like Lewis on Last Man on Earth.

I see no need for minimums. Gliders, ultra-lights, etc., are all common, private aircraft.
