What is a "check ride"?
Each IFATC member enters a check ride phase upon promotion to the ATC Specialist & Officer rank which gives access to Class Bravo airports or radar frequencies… This phase evaluates their ability to handle complex airports, increased traffic volume, and standard Expert Server conditions. The * on the ATC Schedule denotes airports that shouldn’t be opened by newly promoted ATC Specialists or Officers.
How can I appeal my Level 2 or 3 Violation?
If reported by ATC on the Expert Server for an infraction you will be issued a Level 2 or Level 3 Violation. This may be appealed here on the Community Forum by sending a direct message to @appeals where you should provide your callsign, display name, location, details surrounding the report, and a replay file which can easily be uploaded here!
