POSCON Now Officially in Open Beta

Chrome 2021 02 19 10 28 46

Positive Control Network (POSCON) has officially opened the flood gates for anyone to now sign up the “next-generation flight simulation network.” Announced on their Discord, anyone can now sign up and join the Open Beta of POSCON. Users can now sign up and will get access to all services provided by the online network.

The post on the Discord channel confirmed that all restrictions on entry have been lifted and enable anyone to register. For those looking to join their ATC network, registrations are still being accepted. The team confirmed they expect a major onboarding in a weeks time when the ATC permissions are developed for the server.

We last wrote about POSCON back in February 2020 when closed-beta invites were about to be sent out to pilots. A lot has changed since then, but many of the core features are still available for pilots to now try and use. As mentioned, POSCON will be compatible with various flight simulators and include an advance pilot client and voice system. The entire product has been built using modern technology to provide powerful model matching, incredibly fast refresh-rates and a large number of simultaneous connections. A full list of pilot client features and the voice system is listed down below.

If you’re interested in joining the POSCON Open Beta, you can sign up now via their website. We’re working on some first look impressions and be sure to report back to you soon. You can also join the POSCON Discord to stay up-to-date.
