The Real-World Verification Badge is an optional feature used to identify those individuals that have achieved a certain level of real-world status in aviation. The badge is completely optional, but POSCON encourages all users who meet the eligibility requirements to apply. Once approved, the badge will be displayed next to a user's name throughout the HQ. The purpose of the badge is to legitimize the accuracy of comments, forum posts, and other content created by those users as they discuss real-world aviation topics.

  • "RW ATC" - This badge identifies a user who has achieved a high level of experience as a real-world ATC. Eligibility includes those users who possess an Air Traffic Control Specialist license or equivalent. Basically, any air traffic controller that has achieved at least one real-world solo position certification is eligible.
