A qualification is simply a tool for Master Arms' pilots to review and assess their knowledge and skills in avation, communication and operation of a specific type of aircraft. Qualifications are not required to participate in Master Arms missions. A pilot that has been qualified in a certain field will have their name listed in the corresponding #qual Discord channel.
The goals of the qualification programs are:
- Help pilots find gaps or flaws in their knowledge and their skills, so that they know how to improve.
- Give pilots the confidence that they can successfully participate in a Master Arms mission.
- Foster a culture of mentorship so that pilots help eachother improve.
