Type of Training

Private/Commercial/Transport/Military/...

International Standard?

I propose a tagging with flight_school=private/Commercial/Transport/Military. --LordOfMaps (talk) 15:46, 9 May 2014 (UTC)
But many offer both private and commercial training as far as I can see. And flight_school=private,commercial is not really what we want --AndiG88 (talk) 20:45, 11 May 2014 (UTC)
Maybe, it should be checked first, whether there is an international standard for types of training or not. --LordOfMaps (talk) 06:05, 12 May 2014 (UTC)

Class/Type

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Class_rating   
A category is defined as "a broad classification of aircraft," which a pilot may be rated for: 
  Airplane
  Rotorcraft
  Glider
  Lighter-than-air
  Powered-lift
  Powered parachute
  Weight-shift-control
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Type_rating
A class is defined as "a classification of aircraft within a category having similar operating characteristics":
  Single-engine
  Multiengine
  Land
  Water
  Gyroplane
  Helicopter
  Airship
  Free balloon

I'm not really sure how usefull this would be, but I think some general distinction should be made.

I think that the a class/type subtag is to specific. flight_school=Private/Commercial/Transport/Militarty should be enough. --LordOfMaps (talk) 15:46, 9 May 2014 (UTC)
Then there would be bascially no difference between http://www.atca.net/ and http://www.theballoonflightschool.com/ --AndiG88 (talk) 20:45, 11 May 2014 (UTC)

Flight Simulator

flight_school:flight_simulator=yes/no or flight_simulator=yes/no

Although this might be to general and not offer enough information.

I prefer flight_school:flight_simulator=yes/no. --LordOfMaps (talk) 15:46, 9 May 2014 (UTC)

On relation?

Applies to [...] relation? I can imagine only a usage on nodes and areas. --LordOfMaps (talk) 15:48, 9 May 2014 (UTC)

The thought was that there are probably multiple training facilities, maybe even dedicated hangars on the airport which could be put in such a realtion. --AndiG88 (talk) 20:45, 11 May 2014 (UTC)
OK, that sounds reasonable. --LordOfMaps (talk) 05:47, 12 May 2014 (UTC)
