When you complete missions, a number of things happen. For one, your pilot statistics are updated with the details of your mission. Your contribution to any community mission is made visible. There is also a reward system which gives you achievements and ranks.
The missions are an opportunity for everyone to see how far they’ve come. Weather dependent missions will only be made available with very short notice and for a limited time only, as soon as we see extreme weather conditions. For ATC, more pilots flying missions means more traffic for you. This increase in mission-specific traffic will give you the opportunity to work with a team of controllers, and will also give smaller airports, included in the mission objectives, more attention. The addition of missions adds extra challenge for ATC, due to managing the influx of connecting flights together as a team. ATC will be able to book slots at different airports, which will be useful for coordinating how many controllers are available to pilots with missions.
Pilot Mission RotationThe missions which are available to you are updated on a regular basis. That basis may change, depending on feedback from the community. We are interested in your ideas, so if you are excited about a mission idea which you and your friends came up with, let us know. If we are impressed, then the new mission will be added to our regular mission line-up.
We have more than just regular missions, we also have a special set, complete with achievements, made just for our Kickstarter Founders. Without you, we wouldn’t exist, so this is to say thank you, and to keep your time with the Rotate Network gratifying.
Missions are more than just a way to progress as a pilot, they are a way to progress within the community. Other members can also see your statistics, achievements and completed missions. You can look at the leaderboards to see your statistics in comparison with the community average. Showing off your skills never hurts.
Whatever mission you choose, it will be sure to challenge yourself and help you reflect on adventures you’ve already had, and those yet to come.
