    The previous P1 rating was meant to cover:

    • how do I connect to VATSIM as a pilot?
    • what am I allowed to do and not allowed to do while connected?
    • how to I determine what controllers are online?
    • how do I fly without being a disruption to controllers or to other pilots?
    • how do I file a flightplan?
    • how do I make sure my scenery is updated, and what do I do if it isn't?
    • ... and so forth.

    If there is an ATO that was making people study for one year to achieve that, then your complaint is with that ATO, not with the people who conceived the rating system.  As Tomas mentioned, it was something which was very easily achievable with a 60-90 minute multiple-choice test.

    Well, i studied airspaces, vmc, imc and many others more traffic patterns and go on with C172. I do not know.

    For us what you wrote is before you start to study

    cheers.

    I think you are confusing P-ratings (Pilot Ratings) with S-ratings (Controller Ratings). The divisions teach and issue controller ratings so if you were issued an S1 (or S2) those are still on your account. The original P1 was a self-study rating that our students at VATSTAR completed in 30 minutes or less.

    (Edit: If you really mean that the division took one year to teach you the P1 rating then they either grossly misunderstood what the P1 rating was all about or you took a very, very long time to finish it!)

    confused? what does mean S2 and P1? explain me because i can't understand. I talked about P1.

    P1 rating in 30 minutes maybe in divisions where you can take P4 in 8 months. In my division are too much serious and to arrive to P4 3 years (before new ratings). Not just me if you think this.

    I understand that some people may feel like their rating has been "downgraded", however this is not the case.

    The new ratings are based on the FAA pilot training procedures. Please note that they have been simplified for simulation purposes, however they are much more in-depth than the old ratings. See the breakdown below to see what each rating is based on, and what aircraft are permitted.

    • P0 - New rating to ensure that new members are familiar with the network. 
    • P1 - Based on the Private Pilots License (PPL), conducted in a non-complex single engine piston aircraft.
    • P2 - Based on the Instrument Rating (IR), also conducted in a non-complex single engine piston aircraft.
    • P3 - Based on the Commercial Multi-Engine Licence (CMEL), conducted in multi-engine piston driven aircraft.
    • P4 - Based on the Airline Transport Pilot License (ATPL), conducted in a multi-engine turboprop or turbo-jet driven aircraft.

     

    As you can see above, the ratings have been improved to contain much more information and more structure and relevance to real world ratings. Because of this, we have had to convert the existing ratings to the new ratings using the process below;

    • If you held no pilot rating, you were automatically be given the new P0 rating,
    • If you held a P1, your rating was transferred to the equivalent new rating. In this case, the P0 rating,
    • If you held a P2 or P3, your rating was transferred to the equivalent new rating. In this case, the P1 rating,
    • If you held a P4 or P5, your rating was transferred to the equivalent new rating. In this case, the P2 rating,
    • If you held a P5, your rating may have been transferred to the new P3 rating, dependant on the ATO you trained with.

    This is based on the competencies associated with the existing ratings, and with the examination standards and expectations associated with the new ratings. The old P1 contained information about the network and basics of flight; the same information the P0 now contains.

     

    While this may seem like a "downgrade" or a waste of time for you, it isn't. The rating has been converted to the new equivalent, and thanks to this and the MCS all members across the network now have a standardised pilot rating system. Examiner reports have also been standardised and make sure that all ATOs examine on the same criteria.

    Putting all of that aside, it's not a waste of time for you as the knowledge you have gained by training for the P1 rating has not been lost and you can still use it on the network. 

     

    I hope that this clarifies things slightly for you.

    yes i know but i'm not agree. this is for real pilot not  for simulators.  But these are the rules? ok. I just say it's not correct to be downgraded to p0.

    If you want this, do this. Can I  be disagree? Of course I'll not spend many years of my life for a virtual rating.

    Cheers.

  3. Very very disappointed for new rating. I studied one year in my division to become P1 and now I am P0.

    They explaneid to me that every new vatsim user with a little exam online will take my rating.

    So I studied for what?

    This is not a good politic and i do not talk about new ratings. It's better going to take a real ppl than continue here.

    Very sorry. Magic Johnson No GIF by MOODMAN

  4. Hi is this the death of vatsim?

    I have not a good pc but i enjoy vatsim.

    With new release, i can't fly.

    during 5 minutes I had 50 disconnections.

    I think is not good. It's ok for those who have a good pc but for the others?

    Now I try to comeback to 1.1.7 and please let this release active.

    I think that are more the people who hasn't a good pc and all must be the opportunity to join vatsim.

  6. Hi, i have a problem with Euroscope.

    Is the first time i have installed it.

    When I start Euroscope and I open settings dialog, i can't find the buttons "+" near Vor, Geo, etc. Installed many times.

    What's wrong?

    Thank's for your answer.

  7. Hello!

     

    As a pilot you have the option of using Swift Alpha right now (https://dev.swift-project.org/phame/post/view/17/swift_and_afv/) or xSquakwbox when Chris and the team finish off their native AFV build.

     

    We (AFV Team) cannot provide support for controllers using the standalone on Linux as all VATSIM controller clients are for windows.

     

    However I know a few in the community did have some luck under wine, and p[Mod - Happy Thoughts]ed us these instructions :-

    1. Install brew (https://brew.sh/)

    2. Download AFV installer and save it somewhere.

    3. Install wine via brew ( brew install wine )

    4. Install winetricks via brew ( brew install winetricks )

    5. Create a wineprefix ( mkdir ~/.wine/ && mkdir ~/.wine/afv && WINEPREFIX=~/.wine/afv wineboot --init )

    6. Install .NetFramework 4.7.2 ( WINEPREFIX=~/.wine/afv winetricks dotnet472 ) warning: It might take a really long time, because it must firstly install previous versions

    7. WINEPREFIX= ~/.wine/afv wine

    8. Install normally.

    9. WINEPREFIX= ~/.wine/afv wine pathtoinstalledAFV

     

    Known bugs (as for after testing it for 10 minutes):

    1. You need to have focused the window in order to use keyboard shortcut

    The walkaround is to use a controller with a button - then you don't have this limitation.

    HI, Gary, I installed now swift and i connected. I hear ATC but ATC doesn't hear me. Well, the problem is that i [Mod - Happy Thoughts]igned an hotkey but the hotkey doesn't work. It's like the plugin doesn't recognize or something else. I tried to calibrate my mic into audio settings but i can't understand if it works or not. The PTT lights always off.

    Cheers.

    Vincent.

  8. Hi, i downloaded the new audio codec and i followed the instructions to run on linux.

    I have linux mint 19.2

    I can't run successfully the codec neither with wine neither with playonlinux.

    System reports: Audio for Vatsim crashed.

    What can I do?

    Thank's for help.
