Talk:Proposed features/Flight School
Type of Training
- I propose a tagging with flight_school=private/Commercial/Transport/Military. --LordOfMaps (talk) 15:46, 9 May 2014 (UTC)
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)
flight_school:flight_simulator=yes/no or flight_simulator=yes/no
Although this might be to general and not offer enough information.
- 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)
Type of amenity=college?
Further Education includes "awards, certificates, diplomas and other vocational, competency-based qualifications" and "intermediate, advanced or follow-up qualification necessary to progress into HE (University), or to begin a specific career path" - for example "land-based colleges (specializing in agriculture, horticulture); Specialist designated colleges; Art, design and performing art colleges"
- I am not convinced that it would better in any way. AFAIK flying schools typically teach just operation of aircraft. Mateusz Konieczny (talk) 07:50, 2 August 2019 (UTC)
Amenity vs Office
Most of them are actually offices (of a company) attaching to an airport/airfield.
Tagging them directly as an amenity may not be a good idea.
