Yes, we accept the IPPI card. Our members who want to fly overseas can obtain it from our SAHPA office.
Not sure if there is a legal minimum, our members are insured for R300.000, roughly 45.000 Euros.
We provide our members with a CASEVAC insurance for helicopter rescue, if necessary, but this arrangement is more to ensure that the casevac runs smoothly. The pilot's own insurance has to pay for the casevac. It is highly
recommended that all visiting pilots have a good medical and casevac insurance.
Yes, foreign pilots should take out a temporary membership for R310 which makes sure that they are covered like a local pilot, and that they are flying legally in South Africa.
For visitors we have a web site at http://www.sahpa.co.za/ that covers most of your questions.
