I’m really looking forward to the official support of gliding.
I imagine gliding might be fairly niche for most people. It would be good to have a separate forum dedicated to gliding so that gliding-related posts don’t get lost in the noise of the other forums. It would make it easier for people interested in gliding to find all the relevant content.
Real life glider experience, co-pilot on this forum and more than happy to help/instruct.
Just sent me a DM.
I also started streaming some MSFS glider video’s. Not yet with comments but if there is interest i might pick that up as well.
I also can recommend watching some youtube vids about gliders. Helps a lot. Especially if you want to start doing some x country flights or competitions.
+1 from me.
On facebook there is a group “MS flight simulator gliders” dedicated purely to msfs gliders and already, even before official gliders support it has 1352 members. So such glider subforum will definatelt find its members.
Personally, I am quite happy to read and discuss gliding and helicopters on this forum and don’t really need sub forums for them. I happily fly and discuss all types and have no problem if it gets a bit jumbled up. In all honesty, gliding and helicopter chat will die down after the first few weeks anyway.
If others prefer it separated, that’s OK, but not my preference.
I personally would like to see both a GLIDER and a HELICOPTER section in the forum, so that those interesting in those specific subjects had a place to communicate, without their posts getting hidden and mixed up with other aspects of the Sim.
After some flight testing gliders in SU11 I even more am for adding dedicated to gliders subforum - there are many sim mechanics - like nav computer, winch/tow launch, weather settings and visualization, flight tactics that are very important in learing to fly gliders correctly in the sim and are completly unimportant for powered flight pilots. In general forums those topics will simply sink and will be very hard to find for novice glider pilots.
