Maybe that is why we should have to take exams through IVAO, Vatsim or conducting exams here within the organization.
It's a very complicated procedure that almost no pilot does exactly right. Really, it depends on your aircraft or airline. Regarding the SR-20 and 22, listen to Brandon. He's my second instructor (well, in the forum at least
As for inspections, why? It's not like our lives our in danger by sitting at a computer. Besides, not too many people know how to properly operate an aircraft, unless they're real pilots. As for me, I'm learning on the Cirrus SR-20 and -22s. Even that's hard for a young kid like me. As for when I'm flying the 747 in FS, thank g-d I don't have passengers behind me. I'm not saying I'm bad, but I'm still learning.
Even real world pilots don't know everything about their aircraft. For instance, every pilot has a general understanding of aerodynamics and how it connects to their plane, but very few 747 pilots will be able to tell you the exact science of aerodynamics.
If anyone has the Cathay Pacific 744 ITTV video, Captain Don Grange gives you a general statement on how aircrafts benefit from winglets. He doesn't tell you how it puts stress on the wing and the long term disadvantages and advantages other than fuel savings (even though there aren't too many more.
Let's face it Nick, we're not all qualifying for the air force (but Ory might have wanted to since he had to serve in Israel's army, I'm not sure if he did). At least 50% (if not more) of our pilots, including me, would fail if we had to take an IVAO exam in a large aircraft. Some of us can't even read charts such as approach plates and SIDs. That's why we have support forums like these, so we can help one another. Just let the management do what they need to do and make there own decisions. As for the forums, just make simple suggestions. Right now, the staff at simairline.net is doing a hell of a job.
