Updated IPPI Card ratings

“The CIVL International Pilot Proficiency Information (IPPI) Card was introduced in 1992. Since then, associations and pilots throughout the world have benefited from its internationally recognized standards. The IPPI Card is based on safety and training standards defined in the SafePro Delta and SafePro Para programs.

The IPPI Card provides a standard reference by which all national rating programs may be compared. The SafePro Delta (for hang gliding) and SafePro Para (for paragliding) stage on the IPPI Card reflects the pilot proficiency. For the pilot who flies outside of his known or local area, it is a quick and easy method of providing proof of flying experience and proficiency.

When a pilot travels abroad, the IPPI Card – together with the national rating card – will identify the pilot skills. It gives flying site managers, instructors and others responsible for hang gliding and/or paragliding flight operations an easy way of verifying the pilot experience level prior to approval of flight activities.”
