To start with today, I went round improving on a few goals and completing some I hadn’t yet attempted. In the process of doing this, I managed to get ranked up to 6. By the look of things, it seems that I need to have most, if not all, of my goals up to Pro standard for Rank 4, and Sick standard (not going to happen!) for Rank 1.
After that, I boosted my stats some more. Getting up a level for grinding was easy, as was air, but now I have just one air level and one manual level left, and they’re going to take ages. I’ve so far, in all my time playing, manualled 71,000ft. To gain the final level, I’m going to have to reach 140,000. Similarly, I have to spend another 40 minutes in the air. Tch.
