Positive Control was founded on the idea of re-envisioning the way an online flight simulation network should be managed and developed. To that end, we have spent a considerable amount of time, effort, and money to create the absolute best organizational structure for our members. We are very proud of what we have created and we believe that our structure should instill a high degree of confidence in the legitimacy of this network.
The Positive Control organization is divided into two separate entities; a non-profit organization (NPO) and a limited liability company (LLC). The NPO is referred to as "Positive Control Network NPO" and the LLC is referred to as "Positive Control LLC".
Positive Control Network NPO (POSCON Inc.)
This is a non-profit operated in United States of America and organized under 26 CFR Section 1.501(c)(3)-1 which allows for tax exempted status. It is classified as an educational non-profit and maintains a management and development staff consisting of mostly volunteers permitted under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). The NPO owns all of the network infrastructure and all network operations are conducted under it's umbrella.
As a registered NPO, the Positive Control Network reserves the right to earn revenue for sustainability purposes; any revenue earned is spent in furtherance of the network's infrastructure. While staff are legally permitted to earn salaries, currently no member of the staff earns a salary from POSCON.
Below is the Positive Control Network NPO Reporting Chart. For a list of who holds current positions, please visit our About Us page.
Positive Control LLC
This is a single-member limited liability company which does business peripheral to the non-profit organization. Infrastructure and software created by the Positive Control Network NPO is permitted to be leased to Positive Control LLC for use under the terms of its agreement with the Positive Control Network NPO.
