We ask that you provide accurate and honest information. We ask that you take the application seriously and provide answers to the best of your ability. The first step for our team in reviewing the application is reviewing the time that is put into each IFVARB Member Application.
Please remember that this is not a race and to take time on your application. We will review each individually, and very likely not in the order that they come in.
All applications must be submitted within one (1) week. Once the applications close, each application will be discussed among the VARB staff to determine which users would be the best fit for the VARB. Each application will receive a response back via the IFC.
An IFVARB Member is a key member of our Virtual Airline / Organization community. They are mentors for our VA/VO staff, guides for decisions surrounding the IFVARB and the community, and an essential part of our review process for newly applying VA/VOs in the certification process.
During the certification process, Board Members provide reviews of the application in several phases until the VA/VO meets the Leader’s or Admin’s approval for certification.
On the IFVARB Discord Server, Board Members are able to provide assistance and guidance to other staff, help with questions on the IFC, and more.
A user’s previous postings on IFC and its extensions will be examined as well as the application provided. VARB staff will also contact the IFC moderators to determine the amount of previous moderation required in the past for the member who submitted the application in question.

The staff cooldown system has been proven as helpful in increasing staff retention since its introduction. However, as part of our belief that constant improvement and development is a necessity for the VA community to thrive, we’re reducing SOME cooldown periods and condition times. This change is based on community and internal feedback. We encourage everyone to continue sharing their thoughts!
