Ratings reflect the amount of practice that you have completed with IVAO, based on time spent on controls and number of successfully completed exams.

As soon as you have collected enough hours of practice and training, you can apply for the theoretical and practical exam of the next higher rating. The ratings are done in the sequence shown, you cannot jump over an intermediate rating except specific procedures described in Rating transfer.

The IVAO Training Department establishes minimum standards for each rating level. Your local division may require additional higher standards.

This table shows which ratings are available at IVAO, and which requirements you will have to fulfill to attain a rating. Your current rating is shown in your IVAO IVAO profile under “ATC Info”.
