Why is this forum section moving?

Flying Instructors & Examiners A place for instructors to communicate with one another because some of them get a bit tired of the attitude that instructing is the lowest form of aviation, as seems to prevail on some of the other forums!

Why is this forum section moving?

Why is this forum section moving?

Just saw the notice that says this forum section is moving. Why? It seems to me that it is in the correct place as the discussion is non airline.

It also makes it easy to move between the other non airline forums section as the appear as a single block.

Whilst I agree it's in a convenient place, I have always found it somewhat odd that on a PROFESSIONAL PILOTS network, the instruction forum falls below Cabin Crew!

(Yes, I know that not all instruction is "paid" but, surely, it should all be to a Professional standard?)

It made more sense to me before, it was grouped nicely next to Private Flying, and since Flight Instruction and Private Flying go hand in hand you could open both as seperate tabs to read without too much moving about the forum.

Now they're grouped with four other topics which are completely unrelated. I can't imagine anyone who would read all 5 of these forums.

Pprune isn't exactly a pyramid of importance is it. Why does it matter?

I can see this forum section is slowly going to to die as its not in a convenient place and most of the questions asked of Instructors come from the private flying section. Many people will now just ask in the private flying forum or not bother.

Most people connect via mobile these days and its not easy to switch around between the sub sections like this. Minor things but it does impact the user experience and without the experience you don't get the footfall to the forum that drives the advertising revenue.

I think it would be better in non airline forums with the private pilot section
