    It could simply be to limit players' opportunities to exploit the AI's inability to defend against air attack. 4 bombers in an aerodrome is a more or less automatic city capture with any nearby melee units against every enemy city in range.

    Of course, if that's the logic hangers will also need to be nerfed.

    I've never seen Ai researching that deep into tech tree, so I guess this is nonsense for AI.

    Modding out the requirement of an Aerodrome to build aircraft does have an impact. The AI does build more aircraft, but sadly still doesn't utilize them well, or at all...

    For speed players, sure. For role-play/sandbox play, AI bomber/fighter techs and units can happen for 1 or 2 civs in a huge-map game (with FearSunn's Airpower AI Fix mod).

    I guess I'm a sandbox player, since I always do things not efficient, such as building wonders like Maracana, or trying to trigger Globalization eureka. But I still never see AI researching that deep.

    I actually managed to have an air battle recently. Wilhelmina deployed a Jet Fighter to protect an already-pillaged Spaceport. It happened to be next to a Modern Armor that I wanted to kill so I could pillage the Commercial Zone. I sent my Fighters in to soften it up ahead of some Mech Inf and had to contend with the defense. Still, I think that's the first time it's happened in some 500 hours of play. Though I only recently moved up to Deity and seldom saw the AI get to Lasers at Emperor, where I played for most of that time.

    I also learned during that game that if you have an Encampment in the tile next to an enemy Aerodrome, you can bombard the planes on the ground.

    I have no idea how to do that. It's the worst inspiration (maybe 4 sewers also pretty bad too)

    I am hopeful the expansion fixes the AIs reluctance to use aircraft. This would drastically improve the game.

    4 Sewers are not bad. In fact I always manage to trigger that. Valletta and 1600 faith is the best way to trigger, otherwise you have to research Sanitation early and chop beforehand. 800 prod for 686 culture is not bad actually.

    I just buy the sewers. I tend to have a lot of gold by that time and don't find any of the great people useful to spend it on anymore.

    I'm probably getting to that point quite a few turns later than you are, though.

    Yes. You have neighborhood gold at that time so purchasing them with gold is a better choice. I think maybe I'm probably getting to that point quite a few turns later than you are, in fact.
