It's very simple. You learn something new. Everything from one source, no searching for tutorials that are available in English, Russian or German or even do not exist at all. Everything is based on each other and logical in itself. Everyone can read the necessary theory, how, where and when he likes or has time. Even practical parts can often be practiced in singleplayer mode. Download the mission and off you go. Even at three or in the morning, when no one else has time except you. Certain practical lessons and also some examination flights for the more demanding courses are only possible in multiplayer mode. This is subject to admission requirements, and thus ensures that each participant has the necessary prior knowledge and that no-one holds up the rest of the group.
A very important aspect, however, is that you learn and consolidate procedures, procedures and behaviors that are recognized and valued in multiplayer mode or among online squadrons because they are simply meaningful, fair and successful. If, for example, everyone were to stick to a reasonable course, it would be much easier for everyone on an online server.
Why are we doing all this?
Because we enjoy imparting knowledge to others and helping them. Many games today are so extensive and simulated down to small details that you can no longer consider these as games. An airplane like the Boeing 737, or a propeller airplane from the WW II, are not easily started with a push of a button. Good pilots also need a good training, easy to understand, comprehensible, as a hobby, yes; but nevertheless with a necessary grasp of realism. Besides, you get to know interesting people in the practical parts of the individual courses. The concept of community is one of our reasons to organize all this here. In the end, everyone benefits from having great experiences together.
Lust to participate?
Of course we are always looking for enthusiastic and capable people to participate. Creating courses, managing courses, gathering knowledge and learning something by yourself is a lot of work. But it is also a lot of fun if you can pass on your knowledge to others in the end. But even if one does not participate actively, one can contribute to the success, by passing on your experience, thus giving other pilots the opportunity to engage themselves with OFS and also profit from our courses.
