No, they cannot.

The ability to read requirements would help in your case ;)

Hey @DaniBen010!

Great to hear that you’re interested in becoming an IFATC controller, that’s pretty cool! As a couple of users have mentioned before already, there are a couple of requirements you need to fulfill before you can apply to join the team. Everything you need to know is perfectly outlined in the topic below!


As you can see, one of the requirements is that you need to be at TL (Trustlevel) 1 here on the IFC. This is important because you can’t send PMs without that. @TimShan05 posted a link above where you can learn more about Trust Levels. I also recommend you the following topic as it offers some nice explanations about some basic stuff here on the IFC.

All the best for your journey on becoming an IFATC member! Let us know if you have any questions.
