Instructions for issuing the IPPI Card

The card can be issued to any pilot holding a national hang gliding and/or paragliding licence. The card is valid only together with a current national licence or rating card. It is therefore not necessary to renew the card except when a change in the pilot's national licence invalidates the IPPI card. If a pilot for example receives a higher national ranking which corresponds to a higher stage in the SAFE PRO or PARA PRO system a new card should be issued.

Preparation of the card

All entries should be made using a permanent, indelible marking method.

Pilot name

This entry should be the same as the name as shown on the pilot's national rating card.

SAFE PRO and/or PARA PRO rating

The rating assigned should be the rating equal to or less than the existing national rating held by the pilot.
