At Southwest Virtual, we don't believe in limiting what routes you can fly just because of how many hours you have or how long you've been with us. As such, ranks are mostly symbolic. They don't limit what aircraft or routes you can fly and nothing "unlocks" upon reaching a new rank. This is just another freedom we give our pilots.

TopFlight Ranks are for pilots who have flown for quite a while. The first ranks starts at 200 hours and the last rank ends at 600 hours. These ranks actually do have unlocks, like customized profile pictures and a special Slack badge, but it still stays true to our routes-for-all mantra.
