    .land f43
    or .land cv43
    or just .land 43

    this will turn on regular guiding messages:

    first, it will report heading to the runway, presence of cons, every 20 seconds.

    second, it will recommend how to find approach zone, every 10 seconds

    third, it will guide your landing with messages like "you're too fast, make 140mph(225km/h)" or "you're too high, drop 220feet(65m)" or "lower your undercarriage" or "correct approach, proceed like that", every 3 seconds.

    however, this command will require a huge amount of work.

    so, we can discuss the necessity, technical possibility and probably work priority.

    in WWII they were guided like that? Apart info on cons, i don't think they told them when get gears down, or if their speed was correct, right?

    Maybe i'm wrong (as usual :p)

    Oh yes bro, dunno if w/ so detailled instructions, but as I read at the book "Senta a Pua" from our dear Col.Av. Ruy Moreira Lima,
    and "Um vôo na História" from our commander Brig. Nero Moura, the Brazilian Fighter Squadron (Jambock) from 350th Fighter Group, at Tarquinia and Pisa, has at that time a control tower in Pisa, called "Black Ball Tower"...
    So, when some Jambock pilot was caught in trouble they switch the radio at Black Ball Tower frequency (button 3, as I read) and call:
    - Jambock, i want go home.
    So the controller knows that is an plane from Brazilian Fighter Squadron at Tarquinia/Pisa and give to pilot all the instructions needed to drive the pilot back home, as altitude, heading, and so on... :)
    Cool isnt?

    Hi,

    well, would be a nice feature, but will increase server-traffic. What about effects on ping-times and server-stability??

    Greetings

    nursery school?


    "presence of cons" - imho typical gameplay killer, eliminates natural risking. No surprises if it will be available. Tactical information like this should be provided ONLY by players (e.g. someone in twr or by reconnaisance planes), not by the system.

    cool...but yes, a lot of work.

    btw what about distance from field? Landing request can be used for hunters who wants know if come cons here to kill.

    .land would work only for CV landing... I guess presence of cons isnt the goal, but only help to land (speed, dive speed, etc)
