IPPI card update

To all National Hang Gliding/Paragliding Associations Following the introduction of the IPPI card in 1992, national associations and pilots throughout the world have benefited from the internationally recognised standards of the IPPI card. However a lot of pilots are still not using it. To encourage more pilots to use the IPPI card we would like all national hang gliding and paragliding associations to promote this card using the information found on CIVL web site. Some of those information badly need to be updated. You will find below a list of 4 questions and the answers we have from all CIVL countries. Please update those answers as soon as possible, and send them to Stephane Malbos at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. . In your answers, make sure to identify yourself clearly, so we know which country we are talking about ! You can send back the whole file or just the information concerning your country. Thank you ! Stephane Malbos CIVL delegate and treasurer What are the benefits of the IPPI card?

  • The IPPI card benefits everyone in the hang gliding and paragliding international community. From those who control flying sites to the pilots who wish to use flying sites.
  • The IPPI card promotes flight safety and growth of the sport.
  • The IPPI card provides a standard of reference by which all national pilot rating programmes can be compared.
  • The use of this card, in conjunction with the pilots national license card, allows clubs, managers, instructors, marshals and all other responsible persons/pilots at hang gliding and paragliding flying sites to verify the pilot experience level prior to giving permission to fly from the site.
  • The IPPI card is an internationally recognised rating system which removes the differences and need for understanding the very wide variety of national rating systems.
  • For pilots who fly outside of their known or local area it is a quick and easy method of providing proof of flying experience and proficiency.
  • Local persons responsible for a site, know from the IPPI card the visiting pilots ability level, suitability of the site and how much advice they may need to give, etc.

Yes, we encourage and request all visiting pilots to carry this with them along with the license, certificate or rating issued by their own federations. What is the minimum legal insurance coverage required in your country? AUD $ 10 million to operate on government controlled lands (most of our major sites) What additional coverage does your country recommend (such as medical insurance, search and rescue etc...)? We recommend medical evacuation insurance and SAR...our ambulance services are not happy about not being paid by injured visitors and have even suggested that our federation pay for such emergency assistance. Is your NAC prepared to provide a special insurance coverage for guest pilots who do not comply with your national law? It is Australian Civil Aviation regulation that all visiting pilots must hold a pilot qualification approved by the HGFA and that such visitors are provided with information about the more stringent airspace rules that apply in this country. As our insurance requirements and aviation regulations are more stringent than the rest of the world, and due also to some past bad experiences with visiting pilot insurance it is a requirement that ALL visiting pilots take membership with the HGFA. This will ensure that we have complied with the regulations by approving your license and IPPI qualification and by ensuring a visitor comes into direct contact with one of our members who can inform them of both national and local airspace rules and restrictions and finally this ensures that there is no short fall in the insurance. Access to most of our sites is based on legal agreements with a fundamental condition being insurance to $10 million. An accident involving a visitor without this insurance would put our sites in extreme jeopardy....such insurance isn't cheap so it is reasonable to expect all users of our sites to contribute toward the insurance that keeps the site open.
