People that are anti-3d in attitudes. They mainly believe that planes shouldn't fly the way we fly them, and that you should fly 'the pattern' at a field, and fly clockwise or counter clockwise circles in the sky only. This in itself would be ok, but the the generally outspoken and hostile attitude towards anybody that doesn't fly in circles up high (the way they fly) is what makes them not well regarded. Can be young people or old, but is most common among older pilots.
