Alphabetical vs. Topic oriented order

Someone mentioned some time ago that these links are to be sorted alphabetically, while this seems to make sense, it's probably more logical to sort them according to how users are going to use them when developing a new aircraft. So an alphabetical order seems less intuitive than an order that is based on the workflow needed to model a new aircraft. --MILSTD 03:05, 7 April 2009 (EDT)

List of aircraft creation tutorials

List of aircraft with ratings

The section "Rating aircraft status" links to a google document that is no longer available. Should this maybe link to the Table of models, along with expanding the list with information about the aircraft ratings, if possible populated in a scripted fashion from FGAddon?

The whole lot should be deleted. It is not maintainable as these are supposed to cover all FlightGear aircraft, not just FGAddon.
As a replacement, we could use automatically created categories. For example, table of models is depreciated by Category:All aircraft. We could also modify the {{infobox aircraft}} template to add rating categories. It's not the same thing, but it is how wikis organise information.
